Good morning, everyone. After a rather damp day yesterday, it's now a clear and chilly morning (almost morning, anyway). BBC weather tells me that it's going to be a bright, dry morning but we'll get some heavy rain late afternoon and through the night.
It was a quiet, pleasant day yesterday. Dad relaxed and read while I was busy in the kitchen and, when Beth and Dave arrived, we chatted and caught up with our news and generally had a nice family time over dinner and afterwards.
Dad left in time to catch the shop at his end before it closed and Beth and Dave stayed on for more chat. We talked about my running ideas and Dave recommended a running specialist shop that I go past every time I head off the the gym but had never noticed before which sounds just the ticket for advice and equipment. He said that I might be able to get some sort of headphones that would work with my phone and my hearing aids and they would know what is available. Very useful to hear, that was, and, depending on what they say, it might open up my world a little bit to music, spoken books and the like. All very interesting.
In the evening, I watched the Strictly update and, without spoilers, thought the correct decision was made. I thought it was obviously one of two couples but I don't usually get it right.
This morning is a different morning. I've woken at a more reasonable time - for me, anyway. I shall bustle around getting everything done, including some washing, and then I'm off into town to meet up with a group outside the Riverside Centre for my first Heart and Sole walk and I'm looking forward to it very much. Then, on the way back to the bus, I pass that running shop and I think I will pop in and have a chat. I'm getting very brave!
In the afternoon, I have a shopping list to make for tomorrow and an hour of tuition before settling down for the evening with a book, the ironing board and the telly (not all three at the same time though).
I hope you have a good day too. xx
Joy my profoundly deaf friend has hearing aids which work with his phone but I believe they are very priceyReplyDelete
When I got my last ones, I chose not to have them as much of my other equipment works on a loop type system and you can't have both. However, I am seriously considering getting some more so I have both options, not just for that but for other things too. What's a lump sum for, after all?Delete
However, that will have to wait until after the holiday!
I also think that the right person left Strictly. Interesting to see how a number of dancers deteriorated from the first week, just goes to show what happens when there isn't the same amount of time for training/learning the new dances.ReplyDelete
Yes, it does. Hardly surprising, especially as many have their own work to see to as well. It must be exhausting.Delete
I bet your dad enjoyed his visit to you for a change and being with the family for a meal. Enjoy your walk - weather looking promising today - might get to tend my pots outside.ReplyDelete
It's sunny right now and I'm all ready to leave for the bus. :-)Delete
I hope you're successful in finding some headphones that'll work for you. They will make such a difference. How did your first Heart and Sole walk go? This is still on my list as something I'd like to do but I haven't got round to it yet!ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed it. It wasn't fast - I started at the back and ended up at the front. I will go on other walks but it won't be until after my holiday now.Delete
I would say do give it a go.
