Good morning, everyone. It felt really chilly yesterday but it wasn't so bad according to the thermometer. My newly knitted cardigan really came into its own however. Definitely worth the knitting as it kept me toasty warm.
The wind seems to have dies down at the moment and in the moonlight, I can see the skies are fairly clear so fingers crossed for a nice day.
Yesterday passed happily. I got bits and bobs done inside, including washing and a bit of ironing. I knitted some more Christmas gifts. Most importantly, I got my Covid boosted jab booked.
The notification from the surgery only accessed places like Maldon which seems a ridiculously long way away so I went online and, to my surprise, wasn't offered anything local. You wouldn't think I live in the County city of Essex from the lack of vaccination centres. So I had to book for somewhere in Runwell which, I suppose, isn't terribly far away as the crow flies and I have a car. What about people who don't have their own transport?
Then I discovered that they only available times for the next couple of weeks or so were late afternoon and, frankly, there is no way I am doing that journey in the dark and in the rush hour. So I scrolled on until there were morning gaps and booked it for the middle of December. It's in the diary so I should remember.
I'll be well over any side effects by Christmas, if there are any. I had a sore, achey arm after the first one, shivers and an upset tum with the second one and extreme tiredness for both but nothing that paracetamol/ibuprofen/imodium didn't sort out and, to my mind, the vaccine is well worth the slight discomfort afterwards. It was nothing worse than the flu vaccine anyway!
Circuit training was good fun and tuition was also enjoyable so, all in all, a very pleasant day.
I'm looking at a blank page in my diary today so I will give the garden a bit of attention, I think. It's long overdue, to be quite honest, and will look so much more pleasant when it is done. And then I really must think of my poor, neglected allotment, I really must!
Also, there will be a bit of washing to do, a bit of ironing and a shopping list to write for tomorrow morning. That should all keep me out of trouble.
What's in your diary today?
Stay safe and warm and have a great day. xx
