Good morning, everyone, and wishing you a lovely Good Friday.
Yesterday was another almost summer-like day and I enjoyed my lunch in the garden.
I'm back to waking around three again which is a bit of a pain although I can't see why it should be, given the current situation and the fact that I'm on my own pretty much 100% so if I want/need to snooze during the day, I can!
However, yesterday was a weary day, not because of an early start (or not entirely) but because my neck and shoulder were being a nuisance. I ended up cancelling personal training with Lindsey and kept the day nice and easy which did help (as did the pain killers). It's certainly helping my posture - it's much more comfortable when I sit up properly and don't slouch!
For the same reason, I skipped algebra yesterday as my brain wasn't in the 'right place' so to speak, but am raring to go again this morning.
What I did do was finish the simple dress I had started. It's not the same pattern as the one I used for the tops but it is very similar and, if I make it again, I will swap in the square neck which I really do like.
The fabric is some that Mum had. She meant to make a dress out of it but never started and I am sure she'd be so pleased that have used it.
The fabric is very light and cool and I look forward to wearing it on those hot summer days.
I really enjoyed The Nutcracker yesterday evening - after all, what's not to like? Colour, grace, elegance, gorgeous costume, scenery and the music, of course, is wonderful. It was interrupted in the middle by a good old clap for the NHS/key workers and it was great to see the others in the cul de sac and to shout a few words to them.
I'm taking it easy today and for the weekend in hopes that it's what my neck needs!
Nothing very energetic - I may go for a walk and I may do a bit of step this evening while watching telly.
Something for the house/garden:
Well, I didn't do what I had planned in the garden - those bags of stuff are quite heavy and bending over was a bit ouch - so that's deferred for a short time. I do need to go to the allotment to water the beans. That's not a bend over sort of thing now that there's a little 'step' under the tap to put the watering can on while it's filling so I'll probably do that and pick some more rhubarb while I am at it. I'll be very careful though.
I might have a chat with Beth and Alex at some point.
I do have more fabric and I'm enjoying making clothes instead of buying them, but I'm not sure. I'll carry on with the knitting but I suspect if I sit down I will snooze. Nothing wrong with that!
Well - it's either Jane Eyre from the National Theatre or Jesus Christ, Superstar. Decisions, decisions! Also, there might be something Bank Holiday-ish on the telly, even though 'bank holiday' holds little significance right now. My daily telly entertainment includes Jamie's Keep Cooking and Carry On and House of Games which are back to back for an hour of enjoyment.
The above, plus some algebra and some tidying up should keep me gently busy and if it's another warm day I am sure I will be taking my reclining chair and kindle outside for a while at some point. I must make the most of it before the hay fever clicks in.
Have a fab day, whatever you have planned. xx
