Hello, everyone. Happy Saturday to you all. I can't believe how quickly the weeks are passing at the moment.
Yesterday was good.
You could have knocked me down with a feather when the scales showed a loss at SW - a great relief but not something to take for granted, I think. It was a good time with visitors and new members galore and lots of laughs.
Once home, I sorted stuff out at home, did some emailing to arrange a few bits and bobs and generally pottered. I didn't go out in the end.
The evening was really lovely. Dave and Anna are in the throes of setting up their now home and they filled me in on all sorts of interesting details. They are obviously very happy with it all. On Thursday they took a van up to Dad's and collected all the stuff they had laid claim to and now it's safely in their new home which fills me with joy. I know Mum and Dad would be thrilled to know that some of their beloved furniture is still being put to good family use.
I took a few garden photos.
And even the new columnar braeburn looks promising.
The little plum and pear did not flower this year which is what I expected. They should produce next year.
No photo of the fig - after it got frosted, all the little leaves shrivelled up and dropped off but, thankfully, it is now sending out more leaves. My friend Chris has a much more mature one and the same thing happened to hers.
Today is a rest and recover day (Dave and Anna brought wine!) and I will start setting things out for my holiday packing in the spare room. I also want to plan my meals for the week and generally get things organised.
What are you planning to do today? xx
