Well, I got out and did all the things I had planned yesterday morning.
Aldi was emptier than I think I have ever seen it which made shopping really nice. I got other bits and bobs too, but no impulse buys. I'm now well stocked with washing stuff for several months to come.
In Matalan, I was really pleased to get not only a parka for the summer (picture below) but also some target jeans (really target this time - I can't do them up now but give me another month . . .). The parka is nice. I can do it up when not wearing my jumper/cardigan but it's too tight when I am, so just right for the next four or five months and just exactly what I was looking for right down to the striped lining.

I got quite a lot of cross stitch done. I like this one, although it's quite big, is is compartmental so easy to see where I am and if I've gone wrong at all.
I've done the middle floor and the right half of the bedroom above that. I'm still not totally convinced I have got the colours completely right but tough. It looks OK and it's too late to change over now!
Today I have an early tuition session and then the day is my own. If it dries up, I will get all muddy by tackling the little front patch as the baby weeds are growing rapidly now it's a little bit warmer. I would like to get all the weekend washing ironed and put away and I need to tackle some piles of books.
Looking around, I realise that there's stuff that I haven't got round to taking to the charity shop so maybe that's on the list today as well. The corner would look nicer, that's for sure, if I did.
I'd better get going now. Bath and hair wash, get dressed, empty dishwasher, organise meals - all the morning routine stuff, in fact. I think it's going to be a nice day today filled with positive and productive things. Perfect!
Hope yours is too.
