Good morning, everyone. Well, Beeb got yesterday's forecast very wrong. By nine the sun was out and it was an absolutely glorious autumnal day, full of bright colour. So cheering.
I slouched around doing this and that for a while and then, after breakfast, set off for Abercorn Garden Centre to have a nosey round. They had a very good display of Christmas stuff, most of which I wasn't tempted by, but I did get a few presents and some pot pourri.
Then I went over the road to Lathcoats, out local PYO that has a nice farm shop. They are also noted for their apples, many of which you just don't get in the supermarkets at all and I wanted to get a selection - which I did. They used to do this lovely thing where they had all their apple choices on a table with a few knives and a poster encouraging you to try before you bought. Sadly, Covid has put an end to that for the time being.
I also got half a dozen fresh eggs.
It was such a beautiful morning, I decided to drive back the country way - a bit further but it can be just as quick as going through town, depending on traffic and so much more pleasant - and realised I was going pretty close to another two garden centres so I detoured a bit to visit them as well. I didn't get much, just a few bits and bobs I needed, but I did find a nice ribbon for the Christmas cake which is the very last thing I needed to get for it.
After that, I didn't do much really, just pottered. Lindsey must have worked us really hard on Monday's circuits because I've been all achey - good achey, not unwell achey! You know you're getting old when, each time you get up out of your chair, you utter a softy 'oooof!' lol
Today is a bit busier. This morning I will be off to do my weekly shop which is a bit longer today due to getting some bits and bobs for Christmas. Anything to make it easier nearer the time! Do you do this or get things in one fell swoop near the time?
Then I have personal training which will definitely be a bit ouchy but I need it so no grumbles.
Well, I must love you and leave you, as Diane sometimes says. Have a super day, stay safe, warm and happy and keep smiling!
