Good morning, everyone. Yesterday was a beautiful day round this way. Lots of sunshine, not too chilly after a morning frost has thawed and no rain. Today looks like being OK too, according to the Beeb.
As soon as I was ready yesterday, I whizzed off out to do some shopping. First stop was Hobbycraft where I got what was on my list plus a few other little things that I didn't know I needed until I saw them (that's my excuse).
Then I went on to Wyvale and got my more expensive (and, hopefully, much harder wearing and long lasting) secateurs plus a couple of bottles of spiced ginger punch which were 70% reduced for my Dad, who loves it. Last stop was Morrisons for a few bits and bobs of veg.
By the time I got home, it was almost lunch time and the washing I had put in earlier was done so that went out on the line as the sun was shining merrily. I checked over my planning and did some knitting and some tuition before Beth came over after work. No gardening though. After dinner, we both settled down with our crafting - Beth with her quilt and me with my knitting and we had a companionable couple of hours before she went home. Lovely!
Oh, and the washing just about dried, so that was good!
Today is fairly packed too. School for a while this morning, then I am taking someone to hospital for an appointment and after that it's tuition. The evening will be quiet and undemanding, I hope - just telly and ironing!
I noticed that Wyvale had seed potatoes in so Beth and I discussed what to get for the allotment. We're neither of us very adventurous and quickly decided on Maris Piper and Charlottes. We both like those.
Better get going - there's a lot to do before I go into school. Have a super day and I hope the sun shines on you.
