Good morning, everyone. Wasn't it cold yesterday? I didn't really get warm all day and resorted to some jogging on the spot and a bit of step exercise to warm up in the end. I never used to feel the cold like that!
It seems a fair bit milder today.
Val turned up and we set off for Harlow. It was an easy enough run except for the roundabout where the 414 crosses the M11 - that's a biggie but the lanes are well marked so it could have been a lot worse and coming back was easy.
As for the Range, my overwhelming impression was that it's confused and messy but it did have a lot of stuff. I bought a few crafty bits and bobs for a little friend, some crackers and a table decoration which will work for both the Christmas meals I am cooking this year so it was worth going but it's not somewhere I would return to in the way I return to Hobbycraft, for example.
There were some super Christmas decorations though - loads of them!
Once home, it was tuition and then off to Slimming World group where I found I've lost (how careless!!!) another one and a half pounds. That has got me the one and a half stone award (certificate and sticker), not to mention being very encouraging indeed. My BMI is now nearer to the healthy banding than it is to the obese banding - I'm very happy about that!
Today I am off into town to pick up my repaired hearing aid. I've been wearing my old one in that ear which has been OK but the hearing quality has been very lopsided.
While I'm there, I might possibly find myself - accidentally, of course - in a few clothes shops and I do want to look around M&S food hall for things for a few hamper gifts I am making up.
Beth will be here when I get home so it's going to be a very pleasant day indeed.
I hope yours is too.
