Good morning, gentle readers. It's the start of the weekend and I bet a lot of families will be thinking of heading for the coast. Fresh sea breezes are just the thing on these warm days, aren't they, and I envy people who live by the sea. The weather forecast is weird - there's a yellow warning of rain but the actual forecast shows merely some light showers.
Fortunately for me, the rain isn't due until around midday (if it arrives at all). I should be back from town well before then because I shall be in before the crowds, I hope.
Yesterday went well. My delivery arrived at the time they said it would, Sharon worked her usual magic on my hair and the early bird swim was lovely.
I decided not to go for lengths this time, but to just paddle my way up and down for a while. I did about forty five minutes and it was physically invigorating and mentally relaxing.
As I was drying off afterwards, my glasses felt wonky so I put my hand up to adjust them and discovered that one of the legs (or are they called arms) had come completely off. It wasn't the little screw, it was a bit further along, and, while I was able to push it back together and sellotape (when I got home), the spring isn't there any more and they feel very loose and unsafe.
So while I am is town, I will pop into Specsavers to see if it can be repaired and, as I'm overdue for an eye test, I will book one at the same time. I've popped my prescription sunglasses into my bag in case they take off the sellotape and then discover that it can't be repaired. I shall have to drive home somehow, after all!
The other thing I need to do is go to the haberdashery stall to get buttons, zip, thread and lace for one of the current projects. I shall also give the connecting fabric stall the once over in case they have anything new in. Then, seeing as I am in town, I will go to the fruit and veg stall as they can have some very good stuff very reasonably priced.
Once home, I think a bit of gardening is on the cards, plus more crafting. Oh, isn't it a hard life! The knitted part is coming together well and will be finished today and tomorrow I shall focus on the sewing part. I was a little concerned that there was enough yarn but it is coming together fine and I will have enough to send a little ball of it for any necessary repairs.
I have enough tomatoes now that I can start cooking them so yesterday I fried some in a little butter and, oh, they were so, so good. I have some left over to eat with a crumpet for breakfast and I'm really looking forward to it! In fact it has got to the point where I have to go out with a container to pick - my hand isn't big enough.
So, today's food:
B: crumpet with fried tomatoes, apple
L: mini crustless quiche with salad, orange
D: steak, more fried tomatoes, runner beans, mushrooms, natural yogurt and soft fruit
As I don't have an appropriate photo, here's a montage of yesterday's nosh!
Have a great day, everyone.
