Saturday

 Good morning, everyone.  

Yesterday turned out to be a very pleasant day, gentle and relaxing.  Everything went according to plan.  A lovely chat with Jackie in the morning, some family emails, an important document came through and the cleaners turned up in the afternoon, something I had forgotten to mention.  Fortunately, by the time they arrived, I had done the clearing up I planned so they had a clear run.

The cross stitch is coming along nicely and it's a very relaxing thing, even more adaptable than knitting as you can stop at any time you want.

Today there is absolutely nothing in the diary although I plan to do an early morning shop in Sainsburys in hopes that they have various festive items in (like crackers).  Once home and with everything put away, I guess I ought to tackle the washing basket, rain or no rain, before settling down to some more serious relaxation and a bit of meal planning.

I looked up Hyde Hall and it seems that lockdown hasn't closed the place this time.  I might book a visit at some point, for the fresh air and a pleasant walk.  Apart from that, next week's diary has an online chat more or less every day and very little else.  I can live with that.

Have a super weekend, everyone.  Have you got anything special planned?  xx

  1. I'm hoping for a quiet weekend at home but nothing special planned. It's pouring down, do most definitely an indoors day.

    Good luck with your shopping trip and hope you find the festive goodies you're looking for.

    1. It's not exactly raining much here, just drizzle and everything is dull and damp. Now I'm home again I am looking forward to a quiet day in.

  2. Nice here but dull, lights on early and we still have our candle in the window for NHS and also now to cheer me up, two on our mantle piece, all those little battery ones.

    1. Yes, the curtains definitely get drawn pretty early now, especially on a day like today. The little battery candles are so useful, I think.

  3. That's good news about Hyde Hall. I hope you enjoy it. Lula and I took a long walk this morning, and I plan to stop by a new shop and browse with my mask on after I finish up here at the library.

    1. I'm sure I will when I go. I always feel the cobwebs have been blown away up there on top of the hill.
      I love exploring a new shop - was it good?

  4. The days do get darker so very early. My drapes are drawn and I did so around 5 this evening.

    I had a lovely walk this morning, and was happy to stay home and knit after that.

    God bless.

    1. I guess we are only around five weeks away from the shortest day. I don;t know why I always get taken by surprise - after all, it happens exactly the same every year! :-)
