Tuesday

 Good morning, everyone.  It is another misty start to the day but, if it is anything like yesterday, the mist will vanish in glorious sunshine in a while, fingers crossed.

Not only did we get sunshine yesterday, we had enough of a gentle breeze to make a great drying day.  I am so pleased that I was able to get three loads of washing not only washed and dried but also ironed.  Things do iron so much more easily straight off the line.
That's me pretty much up top date as far as the washing/ironing baskets are concerned - for a few days, anyway.

The gym visit went fine.  It was all very low key and un-fussy, thank goodness, and the P T changed her mask for a visor when I explained the difficulties which was so much better.  She asked a few questions about aims/any issues/problems/health, etc, and then started me on some of the machines.  She gave me enough to create a workout of thirty minutes plus which included cardiac, core and strength.  Now it is up to me.

Lindsey has had to cancel my personal training tomorrow and we couldn't find another time when we were both free so that's when I'll go down again and see how it all works out.  I can always ask if I get muddled or forget how to start anything.

I didn't get to the garden centre and all the online potting compost seems to have sold out (late again, Joy!!) so that's the first thing on my list.  B&Q or what was Wyvale, I think.  I might need to make two visits to get enough but if I get some bought, that's a start.

Today, I am on the waiting list for a swim but nothing has pinged through so I'm guessing nobody has pulled out.  That's really not a problem as I do have plenty to be getting on with.

I'd like to get to the garden centre, as above, first thing.

I have a scheduled chat with Dad for eleven, changed from this afternoon, but we might have to change that as he is expecting someone to look at his washing machine and will probably need to remain downstairs so he can get to the door in reasonable time.  It takes him about two minutes to get downstairs as those chair lift things do move slowly.
Whether or not the chat happens, I must get to the allotment and do some weeding (those nasty weeds are taking their changes again) and the grass needs mowing.  A good watering will also be in order, I think.

And then, mid afternoon, I have a dental appointment.  I think it will be to x-ray the new implant site, take measurements and discuss treatment.  I'm pretty sure nothing else will be done today but I will take a tablet or two, just in case (snowflake that I am).

Quite a busy day, thinking about it, but it'll be productive and useful and I think I will sleep well again tonight.  :-)
What are your plans for the day?

  1. The sun is out here in suffolk so as I have some plants to put out I will spend some time in the garden and then pop to the shop as my family, all 6 of us are bringing their own picnics and sharing them in my garden at tea time. I will buy some treats to add to the feast. How lovely it is to see them on a Tuesday as it was always the day we had our catchup meal at my daughters. Have a Good day Joy even at the dentist. Valx

  3. Cookie baby (20 yr old grand-daughter LOL!) is coming for lunch today and I have to help her make up a parcel she has to send off. It is going to be a good day as I always look forward to seeing her. I see the sun is trying to come out from behind some really black clouds but I think it wont last long. I had to laugh at your snowflake comment ...I hope the dental visit will be quick and as you expected. Take care Amanda x

  4. I hope the dental appointment isn't too stressful for you. Apart from that, it sounds like you have very pleasant day ahead of you.

    It's very sunny here so I should enjoy my walk this afternoon.

  5. Sounds like a good day, maybe apart from the dentist, I’m a snowflake in that department too🙈, I’ve a quiet day, we’re in full lockdown, our province has been behind the rest of the countries covid but we are now having a few pop up, but still only 240 cases since the start, I’m waiting for a delivery, baking bread, watching it snow,, hoping for spring to return! Have a great day!

  6. My plans for today were to book the dogs in for a groom - tick. Pay my yearly Council Tax bill for my new property - tick. Hoover and then put washed bedding out on the airer to dry ... thank goodness for sunshine and a safe space behind my car outside the flat - tick. Have a bit of a blog catch up - tick and take the dogs for a really long walk - tick. All that's left to do now is to visit the annexe tonight and measure up for a shed (if I can fit one in) and see if I can fit two bedside table AND a 4'6" bed in the bedroom.

    I'm glad your gym visit went well, you are going to be super fit by the end of Summer. I hope it all goes well for you.

  8. I had a dental appointment and I took a couple of pills too lol. They are anti-anxiety and certainly helped.

    Sounds like you've been quite busy and things are getting back to somewhat normal

    1. Very much so, Sharon. However, I am determined that I won't get into a cycle of things I can't get out of that stop me doing what I really want to do. Easier said than done, I guess.

  9. You sound busy and productive. It's great that you are keeping up with your exercise. I have been hiking, doing the stairs, bicycling, and doing yoga. It all makes such a difference in energy and mindset.
