Good morning, everyone. It feels chilly this morning and, for the first time in days, I shivered as I came down stairs although there is no frost. The heating is now up! I gather the morning is likely to be quite pleasant but the afternoon may turn wet and all day will feel chilly.
Yesterday turned out quite industrious. It was lovely to hang the washing outside in the winter sun, even if it wasn't dry by the end of the day and the sun tempted me out into the garden where I started dealing with last year's debris. You can now see the snowdrops in the middle bed and very pretty they are too, hence the new heading photo. A little bit done every day should soon see things ship shape and bristol fashion again, ready for the new growing season and it will certainly be a much more pleasant view again..
(Note to self - remember to put the brown bin out next Thursday!)
Today I intend to pop into town, not because there's anything major I want or need to get but just because I haven't been in for ages and would quite like to look round some of the big shops: John Lewis and M&S come to mind, not to mention Debenhams, while Lakeland is always worth a visit too. I might splash out on some fresh eggs from one of the market stalls too, if they are not too dear.
Then I will do my bit in the back garden - I think today I will sort out the herb and foliage bed and clear the containers - before coming indoors and chilling (or warming) for the rest of the day. Oh, and I might get the leaf hoover going and clear a few corners of their leaf collections too while things seem pretty dry before coming in.
The first coffee is going down a treat, the kitchen is tidy but the dishwasher needs attention so I'd better go and deal with it at some point after I have sorted out the menu plans for the day.
Have a lovely day and, Diane, continue to get well and I hope you will be back to 100% soon.
