Morning, everyone. It's just getting light here so all I can say is that the skies look pretty clear. Promising. Yesterday was beautiful - sunny, warm but not baking. Perfect early Autumnal weather.
Sitting out with Chris, chatting and enjoying both coffee and each other's company was great. However, I noticed that the garden is getting rather bedraggled and will soon need its first autumn haircut.
However, the front was worse so I had a little conversation with my back, grabbed the weed scraper thingamabob, dustpan, brush and bucked and sorted out the pathway. I need to do my side of the standing space, where the cars are and the 'lawn' is shockingly long, so I have a Little List to work on if the weather plays ball.
And the back cooperated nicely and didn't grumble in the least. Excellent.
Well, I did my statutory duty - as far as OFSTED is concerned, anyway - and clicked on the link to the safeguarding training, only to be firmly told I had already done it for this year. I was expecting 'year' to be from September to August as it was a school things, but maybe it means the calendar year. If so, yes, I have but I have emailed Heather for clarification, to be on the safe side.
So I had more time than I expected. No complaints there.
I have made enough 3D crochet pumpkins. They're getting a bit boring now and, anyway, how many pumpkins can one need! I watched a tutorial on how to cover a polystyrene ring (using crochet) so I could make a wreath or something. Or I could make a twiggy wreath with some bits of branch that fell off next door's birch tree. Or both - but again, how many wreaths can one person need.
The yarn hasn't arrived. Maybe today. I'm itching to get started on Bertie's present.
On to today and it is Slimming World first thing. Will I hit my target? Goodness knows but I ain't stressing - what's a pound and a half between friends anyway?
I look forward to group so much. It's a social highlight of my week, for sure. So much laughter and fun.
Once home again, I'll probably get the front sorted a bit more, maybe finished, before doing a bit of pruning, etc, at the back. Just general; tidying up and neatening off. Inside, I want to work on next week's 'menu' and get my shopping list done for tomorrow. Don't I live an exciting life, eh?
Happy Friday to us all. xx
