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?
Like you I am really enjoying this autumn weather it is perfect.ReplyDelete
It really is - and today has turned out just as lovely.Delete
I'm also loving these blue-sky autumn daysReplyDelete
Have a good day
Than ks, Sue, it has been really lovely.Delete
I have a long list of lunch engagements to arrange when I get back home - friends that have been waiting all summer for me to have a space in my diary - but the family have occupied many of our days and then catching up with jobs the rest.ReplyDelete
You are doing a wonderful job with your tuition - what a shame that all children cannot have such imput it must make all the difference - I had to struggle at school because I moved right before the eleven plus and it ended up with me learning some things twice and other things not at all. I did scrape through to the grammar school but then continued to struggle there. I was always OK once something clicked...but the 'clicking' could take a long time! Have a lovely sunny day and lunch.
Well, that's so kind, thank you. I do try to help as best I can.Delete
I'm sure you will really enjoy all your delayed summer get-togethers. There will be a lot to talk about, won't there?
I was supposed to be seeing a friend but she is unwell, so I have the day to myself.ReplyDelete
Is your pottery group finished now? I don't remember what you said the last time you mentioned it
No, I'm booked for this term, Thursday evenings, and it should be starting next week but it's been delayed until the middle of October - tutor availability is what they said. I'm just hoping they are OK.Delete
I hope you've enjoyed your gift of a day.
Oh dear a gain? I however am proud to boast that after a weeks holiday I 'm home 1/2 pound lighter, never done that before! Everything seems to be going well for you and your garden produce looks good too.ReplyDelete
I know - a right pain but there we go! Coming home with a loss after a hoilday is amazing - congratulations!Delete
Wow - sounds busy! Hope we get to see some of that knitting. I could use some inspiration.ReplyDelete
I don't mind busy as long as it's on my terms. :-)Delete
I'm sure you will see some photos in due course.
