G0od morning, all! After rain yesterday evening (great - no need for allotment watering), it's dry and dull again here this morning. The sun seems to have gone on holiday after working so hard over the summer. It's chilly too - I almost turned on my electric blanket in bed last night but managed to resist the temptation. Maybe a bit too decadent for September!
I didn't go swimming yesterday after all. When I ran through all the little things I had to do, I decided against it. I knew I'd be going today and maybe three days in a row is a bit much. I did walk to the shops and home again carrying a pretty heavy bag instead.
It was a lovely meal with Alex. The nice waiter managed to wangle just a griddled chicken breast and salad for me and it was delicious. Al and I are both pretty busy next week so we decided to give out get togethers a miss and the one after that in a fortnight is the last for a while as Al will be off to uni again. We've decided I will cook him a roast dinner - he loves a roast dinner - of chicken, pigs in blankets, roasted potatoes and parsnips, peas carrots, gravy and cranberry sauce. Sounds a bit like a Christmas dinner to me. :-)
After tuition, I had a meeting with a parent and then I was able to relax, having got the ironing done earlier in the day.
Today I will definitely go swimming and then I have a friend round for lunch - the friend I caught up with a fortnight ago is letting me return the compliment and have her here. I've made a nice tomato soup and we'll have it with grated cheese and some garlic bread I have in the freezer. I mean, she will have the garlic bread (if she wants it).
Then the day is my own. I'll see how much time I have left and might do a bit of gardening. The allotment may look great but my own patch is looking a bit neglected especially the front which is a disgrace!
Remember me telling you about getting some flowers through the post that weren't meant to be for me? That was last Tuesday. Well, they are still going strong. Remember they are now nine days old plus however long it took to deliver.
For a free bouquet, they are really something!
And finally, this evening is Slimming World so fingers crossed.
