Good morning, everyone. My fingers are crossed for another day as lovely as yesterday. I'm loving this warm, bright weather, aren't you?
Yesterday proved to be a really pleasant day.
At Vals, we went out to the Blue Egg ( https://www.theblueegg.co.uk/ ) where we both had a simply divine goats' cheese salad which was by no means low calorie but was packed with good things. I did enjoy it!
On the way back, we stopped off at a great wool shop as we were both wanting to start knitting something for the winter. Val bought a cardigan pattern and I bought a jumper patters (which we will swap when we're made the garment) and we found some lovely yarn, Brett's double knitting with merino, which felt gorgeously soft and good to work with. I gather it's quite new out; I've not seen it before anyway.
It was a bit of a rush to get home for tuition but I made it with about five minutes to spare. I was glad I'd got everything out and ready and I just had to fire up the laptop.
It was my last session with my eleven plusser so good luck, J, on Saturday. They are looking forward to it very much which is a great attitude. It's so positive when a youngster loves learning so much.
I was given a lovely card and a thank you gift which was super kind of them.
Then I whizzed around, getting stuff done, picking tomatoes (all my large tomatoes have decided to ripen at the same time) and so on before setting off for SW.
Weigh-in was, as expected, not good news (3.5 on) but it wasn't as bad as it could have been so that's OK. I'm fired up and back on track again so no complaints.
Today is starting with a swim.
Then, after breakfast, I will deal with those big tomatoes (skin, chop and freeze) and do some general tidying up before the cleaners arrive. At midday, a friend is coming to pick me up and we're off to Robyn's Nest for lunch and a chat. It's been quite a week for meeting up with friends and very nice too.
After that, I think it will be time for a sit down and some reading and knitting before making dinner.
And that's today. Nice and social.
What do you have planned for today?
