Good morning, everyone. It's another damp and dull start to the day. Not cold, just not nice. Having had a bad night with an upset tum, it's not helping to cheer me up! :-)
Yesterday worked well. The aqua class was great and tuition was fun while C and I enjoyed our catch up chat. I did, anyway, and I hope she did too.
I was a bad girl and have booked a couple on nights away at the end of November. I discovered that there is a Premier Inn, with parking and a restaurant, in the centre of Bury St Edmunds, just a short walk (I estimate about five minutes, if that) away from all the interesting historical bits, shops, etc. Premier Inns may not be 'luxury' or 'boutique' but they are very warm, comfortable and, generally, well run places and having meal availability is a bonus for me.
I've booked two nights which, effectively, will give me almost three days, plus meal deals so that's the meals pretty much sorted. I'll most likely reserve some fruit from breakfast and maybe a yogurt or something and that can be my lunch. I know Bury is easy to get to - I did it a week last Friday, after all - and from a certain roundabout to the hotel is literally just four more roads and an easy one way system so even my 'getting lost' phobia isn't grumbling too much. Yet!
I know there's no guarantee of fine weather, it will certainly be fairly cold and the days will be short, but it should be bright and cheery as some decorations will be up, the windows will be full of Christmas goods and there really are so many interesting things to see and do within walking distance as well as within a short drive. I'm quite excited really.
I'm feeling a bit ragged around the edges right now but not to worry, I've cancelled the few things I had scheduled and I am going to get my fleece out, snuggle in my lovely, comfy recliner, and shut the world out for the day. I would still be in bed except that Jeff was here at eight to do his bit (big bit) in the garden. Now all the tomatoes and the cucumbers are up and in the brown bin and it's looking a lot better. Thank you, Jeff.
Have a good day, everyone. xx
