Good morning, everyone.  Yesterday evening the sun was shining and it's shining again this morning.  Lovely!

I ended up spending yesterday inside, more or less.  Beth came round, had breakfast and a chat and then went upstairs to catch up on some sleep while I pottered around.  It was a Bitzer morning - bitzer this and bitzer that!

One of the bitzers was going online and definitely booking for Hyde Hall.  The RHS places (and also National Trust and English Heritage, I believe) are now open to members but you have to book in advance.  I booked two for later on in the week, arriving between twelve and one, and I'll meet Jackie there.  We might take a picnic as there won't be any eating facilities.  We both love Hyde Hall so I'm very much looking forward to this.

After lunch, Beth took herself upstairs again to hold a teaching session with a little friend online while I had a most enjoyable chat with Val, also online.

Beth went; I watched telly and read.

Today is rather busier.
I have a basket load of washing and, as the sun is shining, I'll get them done and out on the line nice and early.  I was holding off in the hopes of better weather and now it's here.

It's the Slimming World Zoom meeting this morning (2 lbs off - yay!) and that's always fun.  Then it's an hour for breakfast, followed by a chat with Chris, either online or in the garden, probably the former.

I intend taking a walk to the allotment after lunch.  Usually, I take the car because of tools, etc, but I'm not going to work much (except for the occasional, unlucky weed, maybe) but just to take a look, talk to the plants (!) and generally enjoy the vibes there.  I suppose I may come home with a few sticks of rhubarb and a few radishes.

The house needs a bit of a tidy up so I will probably tackle that at some point too.

So that's my day today.  I think it will be a good one.
Stay safe and be happy, everyone.  xx


  1. It must be so nice to look forward to a trip out later in the week. My nearest National Trust garden is within walking distance so I might see if I can book a visit for next week. X

    1. It is really very nice indeed. Here's hoping the weather doesn't spoil it. It'll be nice to walk around even if it's damp, but a picnic wouldn't be so great really!
      Good luck with booking your day.

  2. Enjoy your day and your trips. sound nice...

  3. Your day trip sounds lovely and a picnic even better.

    God bless.

    1. Hopefully. The weather forecast has changed and Friday doesn't look so great now, Never mind, Hyde Hall is just as nice in the rain, It just means no picnic.
