Good morning, everyone. Another lovely day expected today - very cheering!
I've been ba-a-ad and booked a holiday. Not till June so a couple of months down the line but the weather should be nice then. It's at the Elveden Center Parcs and it's a posh self catering thingy (eating out there is not cheap) with nice views. AND it gets cleaned every day - how's that for spoiling myself.
I've always loved Center Parcs. When we (me and the children) had not long moved out of the 'marital home', I got a month's supply and decided a holiday would be a nice idea. I went down to the tracel agents in town and the girl showed me details of this 'new' kind of holiday that the weather couldn't spoil - the first ever Center Parcs in Sherwood Forest, opened just that year.
We had a wonderful week and when we left both Beth and Dave cried because they didn't want to leave so as soon as I got home I booked another week for the following year.
I'm looking forward to it already.
Yesterday was a day full of half hourly blood pressure checks. I'm really not sure how good it will be - I peeped at the machine once and it was high! It was very discouraging as I've taken the meds faithfully AND lost oodles of weight too. You'd think that would send it down. I get the official news this morning when I take the machinery back to the surgery.
And to add to my feeling of unease, I've gained 1lb this week. It was bound to happen at some point but I'm not happy, all the same! It might be down again soon - I hope so anyway. Whatever, it is still Carry On Regardless!
I did my last tuition for a week or so and all went well. Apart from that, it was a day in, windows open, doing this, that and the other.
Today, after the surgery visit, it is back home to do some clearing up and then off to the allotment for a couple of hours and a few rows of ground clearance before the heat builds. Then it's more pottering at home. Nice.
Have a lovely day and enjoy the warm weather.
