Good morning, everyone!
Brrrr - I've just been out to the shed to get the day's supplies from the freezer and, while the wind has died down considerably, it feels very cold out there. I was glad to get back in again.
I think we have been very lucky with the weather around here over the last few days. No really bad winds and no snow, just sleet and not much of that either. Something we haven't been too lucky with is that I read somewhere this morning that two people in the UK have been diagnosed with this new variant and one of them lives around here. Yippee-doo!
Yet more reason to keep being very careful, wear my mask and avoid gatherings of people as much as possible.
As hoped for, yesterday was a gentle day. I did some wrapping of gifts, loads of knitting, some housework, some reading and plenty of telly including catching up on Who Do You Think You Are on iPlayer.
I looked in on the Goldster class and it was fine - not as challenging as my sessions with Lindsey but I didn't expect it to be. I'm beginning to think that I may very well continue membership for a while (this first month is free) as I do seem to be getting quite a lot out of it.
Today starts with a disappointment. I was going over to Beth and Al's for lunch but Al messaged me yesterday to say that Beth has 'the lurgy' so please could we cancel it as she was worried about passing it on to me. To my anxious inquiry, he confirmed that it was not Covid, thank goodness, just a stomach upset by the sound of it.
I don't intend to go out today. Apart from the fact that it is expected to be very cold, there are enough things to keep me happy indoors.
I want to give another Goldster class a try; today it is (don't laugh), Contemporary Ballet. It says it is 'a class of low impact, full-body exercises, set to music, aimed at promoting good posture, balance, coordination and concentration.' If you ignore the word 'Ballet', it sounds just the ticket so fingers crossed.
I have more wrapping to do and want to work out properly what else I need to get. I have some ironing and some tidying up and, with just three days to go in November, I am starting to look forward much more to starting all the Christmas stuff - Advent calendars (in the plural!), the candle and the things I plan to do from day to day in order to make this home Christmas-ready! Not to mention Christmas jumpers, etc. And starting my Blogmas stuff in here. That's another thing I want to do today - sort out some more Christmas music!
Actually, it sounds quite a busy day, doesn't it, but all very pleasant and happy.
Have a lovely day, everyone, whatever your plans and, as always, stay safe, warm and content. xx
