Good morning, everyone! We have sunshine this morning, proper sunshine, not like yesterday when it faded into cloud and then rain by mid morning. Fingers crossed
Yesterday looked busy on paper but it wasn't so bad really. I got into town just after nine and went to Specsavers first where I made two appointments. The first was for a sight test as it's been two years since the last one, I think I need a new prescription and anyway, they said every two years because of baby cataracts.
Then I spoke to the trainee audiologist and made a different appointment as I want to get new hearing aids and one of my current set needs to go off for repair as it keeps cutting out.
I was pleased to get both appointments sorted out, even though it means two visits into town next week.
Then I went to Nationwide where I needed to get a few things sorted out - and now I can access my accounts online - I've just checked. That's good.
After all of that, I went to John Lewis to get a shiny new omelette pan, my old one being more than a bit manky. I decided to go a bit upmarket so fingers crossed it will be worth it. Then I did Lakeland but didn't get much there, being fine for poly bags, etc, after bringing some of Mum and Dad's stock home with me several months ago.
And then it was home where there was a parcel on the doorstep. Hotter shoes. Just in time for holiday, excellent.
Personal training was as good as it always is. I so enjoy these sessions and, as I don't have a lot of personal motivation, they keep me moving and are helping to to get fitter no end.
Glasses, hearing aids, exercise classes - they're all about investing in myself and the quality of the rest of my life, aren't they?
Sewing Bee was good again although I was surprised to find how few has done shirring. In my youth I made several sun dresses that basically were tubes, shirred at the top and with added straps. Dead easy, not much fabric needed and, at one time, very much the thing.
And as for the elimination, justice was done!
Poor Little Pete had a traumatic experience. He had A Flea. Eeeek.
He's far too young for the conventional treatment so it had to be a bath, something that didn't go down at all well, as you can imagine.
Did you ever see anything so Dobby-like in your life? "Mistress has given Dobby a bath!"
Poor little chap!
Today starts with the usual coffee and chat with Chris - she's coming here this week so I've tidied the place up just a little bit. After that, I need to do a little shop, mainly for fresh stuff plus a few bits because Dave and Anna are coming over for a meal (Chinese takeaway) tomorrow evening.
And in the afternoon, I am doing a leaflet drop.
As I did some washing yesterday, there's a little pile of ironing to deal with and there's a pile of whites that I will start off after I've finished this - they should line dry today.
So that's my day. Nice and easy, not too much like hard work and plenty of time to chill too. I've started my packing list and will probably add to that on and off through the next days.
Have a super day, everyone, and stay safe. xx
