Good morning, everyone. Yesterday was a lovely day, weather wise, and today looks like being another lovely one today. I already have one load of washing out on the line (done overnight) and another load is just finishing and will go out soon. Ironing later on, anyone?
Yesterday I drove home after a splendid weekend with my parents. It was a most pleasant drive, mostly cross country on Monday morning roads that were fairly clear and always fast moving, apart from the occasional learner driver.
I stopped off at Aldi on the way to pick up a few bits and bobs and also at a garden centre I haven't been to before where I found some most attractive strawberry plants that are supposed to be long fruiting. I got three and we will see, won't we?
Once home, I did the necessary and then whizzed off to school early so I could get what I always do on Monday done before the concert, which was so good. It's fantastic how many young musicians we have at school and there was such a variety - singing, choir, piano, percussion, Djembe (our drum group), violins, flute, guitars . . . and the look of concentration and focus on their little faces as they performed brought tears to my eyes. I know that a lot of schools have dropped many of the arts in favour of maths and English but I am so proud that our school still has a strong focus on the arts, not just music, as well as a strong academic showing.
I had a nice, restful evening and managed to snap a lovely sunset just before I went to bed. Pink and pretty!
Today is less scheduled but should be busy anyway. Allotment first, then tuition planning and late afternoon I have someone coming about tuition for their child.
It should be very pleasant and satisfying.
