Good morning, everyone. Yesterday was a dull, dismal day. It started raining before nine and continued at various rates all day and, I expect, through the night too. It's still drizzling lightly now.
I got to the pool just after it opened and it was nearly empty. It's a good time to go because at nine there's an aqua class so people don't really bother to go earlier. As I am aiming for forty minutes of swimming each time, that suits me just fine. I get out of the pool and into the spa as the class starts and spa, changing room and showers are well nigh empty.
The gym is in a small centre called the Riverside Centre so I popped into a shop to get another ream of paper for my printer before wandering around Matalan where I got a slightly too small jumper and a long cardigan that fits perfectly! At the moment I do like to have a few things in the next size down to act as a motivation and a measure. Scales are helpful but they don't tell you everything.
Then I came home and did precious little for the rest of the day. :-)
Today Beth is coming over and we will be making an owl cushion for a friend's daughter. I have some washing, drying and ironing to do and I must start planning what to take to Center Parcs with me. It's less than a fortnight away now.
I also have a few things to get from Morrisons so I will road test (or do I mean puddle test?) my new shoes to see if they are as waterproof as they claim. I need a bit of exercise today and the walk, short as it is, will fit the bill nicely.
Sharon, thank you so much for the tip about St Botolph's Priory. It seems that there is so much to see and do in Colchester town centre; I am thinking of making a long weekend of it at some point. There's a Premier Inn close by and I could have a long weekend of it, arriving Friday afternoon and leaving Monday morning. I'd have a day there first, just getting my bearings and noting where everything is and then have a weekend there next spring, maybe. Exciting!
