Good morning. The sun is shining down on a damp but drying patio and it's again quite warm. yesterday, between showers, was lovely and, again, I didn't need the heating on in the evening. Nor did I need a warm hand kit on which was nice.
I really chose the right time for my holiday - sheer dumb luck really. The interiors of Orford Castle and Framlingham castle are both opening on the 17th and, although it doesn't say yet, I imagine Sutton Hoo insides will also be open with some restrictions.
I've booked a guided tour of Orford Castle which is nice. I can't book Sutton Hoo until Friday and I can't work out how to book Framlingham castle but will work on that today.
I'd also like to visit some the Suffolk Wool Towns, particularly Lavenham, although I gather they are all lovely. I'll do some research today - what there is to see, parking, distance from Southwold, etc.
That should provide me with plenty to do outside of the town and, added to the daily walks along the beach, etc, should fill my time and keep me active.
The weather is not forecasted to be great but what are raincoats and stout shoes for anyway?!
Today, Beth is over early and is staying overnight, going home tomorrow evening. That is because Alex has exams and she's getting out of his way.
She has to work still so I will be tiptoe-ing around her and it's just as well I have gym and swim booked this morning, isn't it? I'm not sure what else I am doing but I'll try not to disturb or distract her.
In the afternoon, I might go and take a look at the allotment and I do want to get a bit more apple blossom to see if I can pollinate the other clump of blossom on the flamenco tree in the garden which has now opened its other clump of flowers.
There's not much to do at the allotment. No need to water and the grass will be too wet to mow, although I might attack some of the weeds which will most certainly have emerged. I have the wellies in the car so that will be OK.
And that's it for today. It should be good. Take care and enjoy the increasing warmth. xx
