Good morning, everyone! We're due a dull but dry today so really a bit like yesterday. It doesn't look as if it will be too cold but, like yesterday, the lack of sunshine makes it feel colder than prehaps it really is.
I had a lovely time with Val yesterday. She arrived late afternoon and we had lunch before setting off fo a stroll and a good natter. We've arranged the next one which is, coincidentally, on my birthday, and she's going to take me to Marks Hall Aboretum which isn't too far from where she lives and to which I have never been. I'm looking forward to that!
It was a noisy morning as they were doing the road just outside our little cul-de-sac. Fortunately, they had finished the noisy stuff by around midday and peace returned. Today they just have to finish by, I think, adding the top layer. And then we can all drive along our road again.
Apart from tuition, my day is clear until weigh-in this evening so I will do some more book sorting, ironing and generally continuing with the decluttering. I need to pop round to the shop at some point too. Quiet and gentle. I did um and ah about going into town but I won't today, maybe tomorrow, we'll see how things go.
Regarding decluttering, I have realised that my two towelling dressing gowns, perfect for drying myself after swimming at Center Parcs as well as at the gym and at home, are simply too big. I've used them for years but, after considerable dithering over the last month or so, I'm going to retire them to the recycling point and have ordered a couple of new ones which should be arriving in the next week. Size small!!!! That's because all the reviews said they come up larger than you would think but - really? - small?
Well, I will see when they come.
My coffee mug is empty so it's time to refill it and empty the dishwasher while the kettle boils. Have a great day, whatever you plan to do, and may it all go well for you.
