Good morning, everyone. It's a very cold, misty, frosty start to the day today which is predicted to morph into plenty of sunshine once the mist clears.
I took this over Sunday night/Monday morning. I peeked through the hotel curtains and the moon was beautiful. I tried to take a few photos but none were very good, this was the best of a bad lot!
It was an absolutely beautiful morning yesterday - this is the view from my bedroom window.
Id done most of my packing (not that there was all that much) the night before and taken the case to the car so there was very little to do before a ginormous breakfast and the drive home - which was so very easy that I was home just before ten and by ten thirty everything was unpacked and the washing machine was buzzing away happily!
It was good fun at the last circuits class of this block. There isn't one next week as it is half term (how can it be half term already??) and the new block starts the following week which will be the last week in February (crazy!). For once, everyone was there so there was plenty of chit chat as we worked.
Then it was home for a quick freshen up and out again to school for a meeting which wasn't too long and very interesting followed by a wander around Morrisons to do the weekly (possibly fortnightly) shop.
Today starts with a Groove class, again the last of the block. Then I'm home for the day before a Governors' Training session about, I think, assessment and how it is recorded, reported, etc. Probably it will be two hours of fighting the tendency to snooze and it isn't compulsory, but I feel I ought to go.
The nibbles of the elephant today are to sort out three disgraceful bedside drawers and to do a bit of gardening. It's brown bin collection this Thursday so it would be good to get some done before then.
There's also the washing to finish off and some ironing to get done.
Also, over the weekend, I am very behind with reading blogs and commenting, so I will try to catch up with that too.
So quite a busy day but it should be satisfying - most of it, anyway! I doubt the training will give me much joy but there you are!
Have a lovely Tuesday, everyone. Doing anything exciting?? xx
Sounds like your weekend away was well worth it and stress free with the easy traveling. Nothing exciting today for me although we have signed up for Gousto again so at least our main meal won't be boring! Sewing class yesterday ( took me nearly 2 hours to prepare pockets ready to stitch to front of tunic!) so I might get the machine out and attach them. Othe tnan that - chores and dog walking.ReplyDelete

Gusto is the one I've not tried - these meal kit things do broaden ones horizons, don't they. I hope you enjoyed it. xxDelete
Hope you don't snooze in the training session! have fun nibbling that elephant.......ReplyDelete
The elephant didn't get much nibbling and, surprisingly, the meeting was really good and very helpful. xxDelete
The moon has been beautiful these last few nights hasn't it. I was out in the freezing cold last night just staring up at the lovely clear sky and the moon was staring back at me ... no doubt laughing as I had forgotten to close my door and was letting all the heat escape!ReplyDelete
A lot of people are talking about shopping fortnightly instead of weekly to avoid temptation and spend less money, it seems like a very good idea. Let us know if it works out for you.
We've had some beautifully clear and frosty nights - I always take a peek when I go to the loo in the middle of the night and can sometimes stand at the window for a while, just enjoying the beauty (but not enjoying the cold toes).Delete
AT the moment, it feels quite reasonable to aim for a fortnightly shop or, maybe, every ten days so three in a month rather than four. I think I have enough fruit to last but I'm not so sure about the veg. I will find out, won't I?
You are retired…go to only what you like…ReplyDelete
Everything is covered in frost here with frozen puddles here and there. Nothing has thawed so it's not the right time for gardening here, even though it desperately needs some attention. Good luck with tidying the bedside drawers ... that's the sort of thing that gives me a lot of satisfaction when it's done.ReplyDelete
I've been out for lunch with a friend today and am now cuddled up in the warm watching the teatime game shows on TV. xx
It was too cold here and my shoulders and neck were aching so I took things easy. No nibbles so they are on today's list. xxDelete
What a lovely view from your window. Isn't it amazing how fast the days are flying by.ReplyDelete
It's quite scary really - a quarter of the way through February and next week is half term. Crazy!Delete
Beautiful view. Poured down here; took a pile of stuff to the charity shop. I am posting about that tomorrow (Wednesday)ReplyDelete
Good for you! I'll look forward to reading it.Delete
Looks like a lovely view from the window, so nice to wake up to.ReplyDelete
Yes, it was lovely. One of the many nice things about the weekend. xxDelete
