Morning, everyone. Dull and dismal, raining, blah, blah. I always feel so sorry for kids (and their parents) when the weekends are wet. It's not warm either and yesterday I turned the heating on for a while. I want my spring back again!! Don't we all?
Never mind, I made use of the time inside to sleep (several times, lazy me), watch daytime telly, bake crumpets, make some orange and lemon cordial and get on with my cross stitch.
I've finished the house one and here's a scan of it. It needs pinning out and pressing properly first and I still haven't decided how to mount it (or even IF to mount it). I enjoyed doing it and am pleased with the results.
I've started another one, chosen from my box of kits. Here's a scan of the picture that came with it. It's more challenging than the house, especially at first, but it's going OK.
(apologies for the colour - it's brighter than that really)
I'm continuing to feel extremely well. So well that next week I am going to pop down to the gym and take out a membership. I think I've already mentioned this (more than once!!!) but I am taking out a year's membership, about half of which will be while I finish losing this weight and then. after that, toning up. After a year I will think again. It'll be mostly swimming and they have a lovely pool there.
I'll see if I can pay for the whole year at once, the reasoning being if I've paid, I will go and also I have saved the money so I may as well.
With that in mind, last week I ordered a new cossie which arrived yesterday. I already have several but I wouldn't dare wear them - they keep falling off! This one is a reinforced, armour plated one a size smaller and - it fits! It actually fits. Snugly, admittedly - but then that's what swimming costumes do, don't they? It gives me a proper shape and I'm really pleased with it so I think I'll get another one the same.
I'm still feeling quite tired at times so I'm going to have another easy day - an easy weekend, in fact - and just do friendly, familiar, homey things as and when I feel like it. To celebrate the end of the veggie restriction, I am going to make a tomato and lentil soup - it goes with the weather, after all!
Have a good weekend and stay warm and dry!
