Good morning, everyone. I was wrong about yesterday - half way through Groove, the sun came out and it was absolutely lovely, really spring-like. It disappeared behind clouds from time to time but never for long. It is actually raining as I type this but it may clear up later, fingers crossed.
I can't believe it is Wednesday already - it is seriously scary how quickly the days are passing. Whether it is down to getting older, being busy or what - slow down, life!
Although I didn't have a long list yesterday, I seemed to have plenty to do.
First thing was Groove. As mentioned, half way through the sun broke through and you could feel the energy rise in the hall. You could feel the warmth too - we do generate a lot of heat on the coldest of days - and I must start taking a towel or flannel with me now it's warmer again. Anyway, it was a really fab session, most enjoyable and invigorating.
When I got home, there was an email from Jeff asking if he could possibly come at around twelve instead of the afternoon. This actually worked better for Beth than the morning so that was good. The garden definitely looks better now and the bulbs are brightening everywhere up so nicely!
I accepted Ray's quote for some work and now wait for him to say when he can do it all.
In the afternoon, I went round to Beth's and we sorted things out. Ever since Alex was a very little boy, Beth has had a life insurance for his benefit that I have been finding and now she is on a firm financial footing it is time for her to take over the responsibility so that's what we did. Like all these things, it was easier to do than we thought.
At the same time, I arranged for a smart meter to be installed - I've resisted them so far but my meter IS very old now and, what with the solar panels, etc, it makes a lot more sense. So I have a date and time and now I can let the solar panel people know and get that arranged too. Brilliant.
My goodness - all this adulting!
By the time I got home, it was chill, read and crochet time so that's what I did! Nice.
Today, as I don't have anything scheduled until personal training, I thought I would take a drive into town to the Riverside retail park and have a look at clocks in Homesense. I may also find myself wandering around Matalan too - I haven't been there for simply ages - and there's the new Iceland shop too plus Home Bargains and Poundland. No, I don't intend buying anything unless I see a clock I really can't live without (!!) but you never know. I'll probably have to dodge the raindrops but that's OK.
Now I have accepted Ray's quote, I really do have to get those drawers over my bed sorted so I am definitely starting on them between getting home from town and personal training. It's a must now.
I do hope the rain stops and the sun comes out again during the day - it was so very pleasant yesterday, almost nice enough to sit out in the garden. Wow.
What's it like your way today? xx
Not being a million miles away from you Joy it's drizzling here at the moment. I haven't been to the retail park at Riverside for absolutely ages - thanks for putting the idea into my head, thoughts for a rainy day (but not today as I have tentative plans in place) Hope you find your 'dream' clock!ReplyDelete
:-) Yes, it's eased off now so I live in hopes.Delete
I know Homesense has had nice clocks in the past but you never know there, do you. It's so quirky, what they have. I'm in no rush but when I look at the relevant bit of wall I always think how nice it will look. :-)
Yesterday was such a treat after so many damp days. Made me remember that I do like gardening after all.ReplyDelete
Today is back to grey and drizzle - Hope it's better in Essex
It's drizzly here too but the clouds seem to be lifting so fingers crossed. xxDelete
It was a damp and dreary day first thing but seems to be brightening now, at 9:00. It could go either way!ReplyDelete
It brightened up a bit here after a while. Not as nice as Tuesday but OK, all the same. xxDelete
Sun's shining here but there's a cold wind blowing. It's lovely and warm in my porch though so I am catching up on my favourite bloggers. XxReplyDelete
It sounds lovely and cosy. xxDelete
Hopefully you will be able to get the Smart meter installed and working soon. We had a long wait to get one when we lived in Wales as they had not managed to get the technology sorted properly to merge grid power with solar, but after an eighteen month wait the tech had caught up and was ironed out. Everything worked just fine then, although the readings in the kitchen were not always accurate.ReplyDelete
Isn't it lovely seeing some sunshine, it's lovely here today and I have a line of washing out, blowing happily in the breeze.
To be honest, I'm really not fussed about accurate readings this end as long as the are accurate t'other end. It just makes a lot of sense to have it all modernDelete
Sunshine cheers everyone up, doesn't it. xx
We've got very mixed weather here today, sunshine and showers and very blustery at times. I think in Wales March is trying to go out as a lion!ReplyDelete
I've had a few days away with one of my sisters in Oxfordshire and the weather was still very nippy up there too
Alison in Wales x
It's not been blustery here, thank goodness. We had that last week. :-) xxDelete
it's nice when you can get all your ducks in a row!!ReplyDelete
Yes, it is, it's lovely! xxDelete
The forecast was for rain on and off all day but fortunately the rain held off while we were out taking our photos this morning and we had brilliant sunshine ... it was lovely.ReplyDelete
Hope you've managed to find a clock you like. xx
I've seen some that I like but I haven't committed to any of them yet. I have plenty of time.Delete
I'm glad your photo session went well. xx
