I was a bit concerned at the amount of caffeine I was taking in so made a few changes. I'm rather surprised how well boiling water with a slice of lemon (appropriately cooled down, of course) wakes me up. Maybe it's a habit to hold on to.
Yesterday turned out to be another really lovely day.
After my early morning tuition, I pottered around, wound up the very last yank that had felt a little damp still on Tuesday so I left it to air, did a bit of housework-y and gardening-y stuff before changing into my new sportswear bottoms and a long T shirt (to hide the residual bumps) and setting off to Lindsey's for forty five minutes of puff. Actually, it was really good, most enjoyable.
After lunch, I set off for the allotment. Beth had to pull out again, sadly, but never mind. I weeded, removed side shoots, cleared the broad beans which are now over, weeded again, pulled a couple of beetroot (one purple and one white), found one mini cucumber and a few courgettes (I like them on the small side and, heaven knows, we won't be short of them!) and then gave everything a good watering.
Not a lot, I know, but what I came back with.
The fruit trees are laden! I think we need to thin the apples, they have no room to grow.
Today, there's nothing in the diary until Val comes over for a cuppa and a chat in the garden. I think I will start on some washing good and early so it will all be done and dried before hand and I can put away the rotary line. I also need to get the place tidy for the cleaners tomorrow - note, I said tidy, not clean. I have them in to clean, tidying is my part!
After Val goes, it won't be long until the SW Zoom meeting. That's always fun.
I also got a shiny new Lakeland catalogue in the post yesterday so I shall certainly take some time to look through it and drool over all the lovely stuff that I don't need!
Well, it is now light outside and from the looks of it, the sun should make an appearance at some point. I'll stop now and get started with the washing.
Enjoy your day, whatever your plans are and be safe. xx
