Good morning, everyone. After a quiet start yesterday, it became gusty and then really rather too windy. Today looks like the lull between two storms, sunny and with a gentle breeze, with tomorrow looking even nastier. I do hope all of you are OK and have not suffered any damage - as far as I can tell, we are fine here.
I'm so glad I put the washing out on the line yesterday. It might not have been sunny but the wind was perfect for drying everything quickly and everything smelled lovely when I ironed it. I did a last load overnight and that's now blowing gently in the early sunshine. Nice.
As I rather feared, I ran out of thread for the back stitching and, despite having loads of different threads upstairs, did I have a dark charcoal grey sort of colour? No, I did not. Bother. Oh, well, there's nothing for it but to venture to Hobbycraft this morning. Oh, the hardship!
Actually, it works quite well - I only have a small shopping list this week and I can stop off at one of the three Aldis we have in town on the way to Hobbycraft and get everything done in one journey.
Personal training was really good this week. Lindsey always manages to find something to challenge and extend without making it too hard to manage. She's really very good.
Today, usually, I have coffee and chat with Chris but not this week as she can't make it. All the more time to wander around Hobbycraft in that case. Then I must get some serious clearing up done; somehow, the place is an absolute tip.
On a more serious note, thank you very much to everyone who commented in yesterday's second post about Diane. So very kind and sympathetic of you all and much appreciated. I still can't quite believe it.
Thank you, lovely people. xx
