Good morning! I'm up early again but I don't mind because I had a great night's sleep. It's definitely milder this morning with no hint of frost although Beeb says the temperature won't rise much and will probably drop to freezing over Monday night.
Thank you to all of you who asked about my aches. I do have a slightly dodgy back but it's fine, it's just occasional twinges and doesn't stop me doing anything I really want to do - so that's all good. I just like a good grumble now and again - I'm getting old!! :-)
Yesterday was a quiet day. I washed, dried and ironed my bedding and there's more washing to get on with today. I did some of the camera course, understood a bit more, cursed my camera limitations once or twice but managed to get a couple of reasonable examples of different shutter speeds snapping cars going past.
Like this . . .
I'm now on to ISO which is, I think, the last technical chapter for a while.
The thing I find a bit frustrating is they you learn how to do something and then you change the setting and it doesn't do that any more, it does something else! I guess that's my way of saying even a simple camera has hidden depths!
Anyway, I have recovered from the aperture grumbles, accepting that there are limits to what my camera will give me in that way.
(You're all going to be bored to tears by the time I finish this course, aren't you?)
I put into the slow cooker the ingredients for a beef tagine and let is slowly cook all night. The house smelled lovely when I woke this morning - I love my slow cooker!
Today is a much busier day.
I'm starting off with an early morning shop and I think it will be Sainsbury's today which means I can take a good nosey around the clothes too. I've got a fairly long list which needs reorganising before I leave as it's a bit random and it contains things like loo rolls and kitchen towels, items I only need to get once in a blue moon.
Later on, it is circuits at Lindsey's and after school it's tuition so I need to do just a bit of planning for that. In between those, I have washing and the usual housework to do plus I MUST get some information off to my solicitor so quite a busy day really. It should keep me out of trouble anyway.
I hope your day is hassle free, satisfying and happy. Take care, stay safe and be positive. xx
