Wednesday

Good morning!

It was way-y-y to cold to get out in the garden yesterday because of the strong winds but I did nip out to take a few photos.

The snowdrops are lovely although it was hard to get a clear photo in the wind and poor light.




The mini daffs will be brightening up the bed before long



And, if I'm not very much mistaken, my delphinium is coming up, poor confused thing.  I wonder what will happen if we get a really cold snap.
Snails love delphiniums so thank goodness they aren't out and about yet.  I'll keep a close eye on the situation though.


As it was so windy yesterday, I thought it would be a great drying day and pegged out some darks.  Sadly, it wasn't really and the clothes came in rather damp although OK for ironing as long as I aired them properly afterwards - which I did!

SW group was great fun.  It's a really nice group, the Tuesday morning one, very sociable and I've joined the social team by helping to do the weighing.  It's definitely better to walk to a local group than to drive out to the Writtle group (yes, the same Writtle that was in the news over the weekend for a very sad reason).

Today I've got myself into a very energetic time.  I'm meeting Jeff down the allotment at nine thirty so he can do some heavy digging and weeding for us.  I have to be there too so will do my bit - and he's booked for a minimum of three hours.  Eeek!  Beth and I sadly neglected that allotment last year (for various different reasons) so it's going to be in a disgraceful mess but neither of us want to actually hand it on.  I think having Jeff on hand will make all the difference, I really do.

And then I have an hour of personal training - double eeek!  Fortunately, it doesn't actually clash as Lindsey asked if it could change to later on, but it's an extremely energetic day and should work wonders for calorie burning!

So that's my day.  What are your plans for today?

  1. Wow, digging and gardening followed by personal training. Don’t overdo it and good luck. When I saw your pics of the snowdrops I decided to walk around my garden and take some of mine if the weather is good enough this morning. I went to Abergavenny yesterday and bought some Japanese type fabric so I’m going to hem 4 furoshiki and make the sashiko sample for the WI session.

  4. Since you asked (and I'm not doing a blog post today), I did an hour of exercise first thing, followed by breakfast and a 20 minute walk to the senior's centre. I served coffee, tea, cookies and pies for a couple of hours then walked home again. That should do me exercise-wise and I refrained from sampling a meat pie!

    1. That's a lovely, complete day and well done for resisting the meat pie!
