Morning, everyone. We have yet another frost this morning, darn it, and another predicted for overnight tonight so I am very reluctant to take the fleeces off the fruit trees. Ah well, maybe tomorrow. The skies are clear and it looks as if it will be another fine day!
Yesterday was lovely. After an easy morning, I went down to Beth's for a jolly good lunch and a catch up with her and Alex. She had made a mixed veg stir fry and it was most satisfying!(photo borrowed from the internet)
We were talking about my holiday next month at Southwold (fingers crossed) so when I got home I checked my booking, just for the fun of it. They've changed the way you get the key. There used to be a 'Suffolk Secrets' shop in the town where you collected and left the key but now there's a key safe at the property and the week before you get sent a code to open that safe. Much easier really. I think it is time to start planning what I will take. It's self catering so a few home comforts are very welcome. I always take Thermione, for example, and a small fan and I always take food staples too plus enough food for Saturday and Sunday's meals.
There's also trips to plan. Last time I stayed local but this time I want to take the car out and about a bit more. There's Aldeburgh, for example, Framingham Castle and the church next to it is worth a visit and I think there have been a number of changes to Sutton Hoo since last I visited. I have to check arrangements for all these places; you can't assume you can just walk in nowadays.
Oh, and I remember there was a rather nice winery that sold their own, rather good (and expensive) wines. I wish I could remember the name.
Anyway - time to get organising stuff which is always a big part of a holiday for me.
Later on in the day I had some good news from Dave (son) so all in all, yesterday was a good one.
The biggest biggie of the lot today is . . . < drum roll > . . . my hair appointment. Woo hoo. I will feel human again, three cheers! Sharon is expected by one thirty so by two fifteen . . .
It's it odd how tatty hair can make one feel so down and nice hair can lift the spirits!
Originally, I had intended planting out the spuds but I think it is just a bit too cold so I'll schedule some time later on this week when I can do the broad beans and the sweet peas as well.
