Good morning. Well, we may have had a little bit of snow overnight but there's no sign of it now, it's just wet, wet, wet! It's cold, mind you, it feels raw and I'm very glad I can stay indoors and keep warm. Given that us golden oldies get a fuel allowance, I have no worries about turning the heating up a little bit!
Yesterday was good although I didn't get the ironing done so that's pretty high on the list for today, as is another load of washing.
Lindsey worked me fairly hard in personal training; she's definitely upped the levels for this block of sessions. No complaints, it's what I wanted and it's definitely working. A biggie was improving my balance which was very poor and that's certainly better. Also, I'm managing things that I never used to be able to manage. Yesterday was a case in point; curling down until hands touch the floor, then 'walking' the hands forward into a plank, holding the plank for ten seconds or so, then walking back and slowly straightening again. I could never have done that before Christmas even.
So I left the session feeling pretty good!
I finished the very simple skirt I was making. It's a bit too short as there wasn't quite enough fabric left but that's OK, I can use it when sitting outside in the garden on those warm spring and summer days that are just around the corner (I can dream) and I now know my size for that particular pattern. It's come out nice and I will use it again.
I dug out some more fabric (like yarn, I have a ridiculous amount of stash!) and have started on a top, a bit more complicated which is good. I got it cut out and all the markings stitched in so today I will set to with the machine. No - first I will tidy up what's left of the previous make and then I will set to!
I'm just posting this collage because there's this free online program that takes your photos and turns them into a collage (loads of choices) which you can save. It's called photocollage.com and it's very useful.
Today there's nothing in the diary until tuition.
I have that ironing and some washing, I need to go to Morrisons for a little shop, there's some planning to do and the tidying up and then I can start sewing again. I want to put in a good day's work because I won't be able to do any more after today until Tuesday.
Tomorrow I am out on a little adventure (meaning something new)!
Have a great day. xx
