Good morning. It really is a good morning too with the sun shining brightly and the birds singing their little socks off. Things did clear up yesterday and it warmed up considerably but it's nice to start the day with sunshine. I've already got one chair out!
Yesterday was comparatively busy. Not busy compared with most folks but compared with recently for me, a bit busier.
After an idle start to the day, I drove over to Lindsey's for personal training/massage. After a chat about what to do, expectations, 'stop if it starts hurting' kind of thing, I asked if I could have a try on the cross trainer, the reason being I thought the movements were the kind that don't hurt whereas the static cycle does (it did at home, anyway). I just did five minutes on the lowest setting not fast, concentrating on calves and ankles and how they were feeling and it was great. I think getting them moving is such a safe way really worked and they kept feeling much better for the rest of the day.
It was a good session.
Then, after lunch, I pottered down to the allotment and tackled the bigger patch of weeds, accidentally weeding a random potato plant that must have come from one last year's potatoes that we just missed. So I came home with four new potatoes, two of which I had for dinner and they were lovely!
I also came home with another load of broadies, some of which went next door to Jenni who has been great in watering my pots while I was at Dad's.
And some of the blueberries are turning blue. Lovely!)
(I do get excited over daft little things, don't I?)
Apart from the repeated pleasure of shelling broad beans in the afternoon sun, the rest of the day passed as usual. I slept extremely well.
Today, Chris is coming round for coffee and chat this morning and after that I will trundle in the direction of the allotment.
On the list today is:
picking broad beans
mending the support canes
pulling some rhubarb, maybe
checking the strawberries and directing the runners towards the empty raised bed
That's enough to keep me out of trouble, isn't it? I'll get there!
Have a super day and enjoy the sunshine. xx
