Morning, all. It's very early on Sunday morning and you can't see what it's like out there at the moment. However, the forecast for the next seven days (according to BBC weather) is for wall to wall sunshine, not a cloud in sight and temperature going up to nearly 30 by the middle of the week. Yes - bring it on.
The tomatoes will be happy too!
Yesterday morning, I checked my Premium bonds using the app I have on my phone (as you do) and yay, another win. Nothing vastly huge but a nice little extra to go towards the cruise savings (although, for now, it's been reinvested, of course). They come up with something pretty much every month at the moment and it does all mount up in time. An extra thousand or so over a whole year is a useful sum. So that was another happy thing to add to Friday's haul.
The muggy head soon cleared yesterday morning and I pretty much chilled all day apart from the daily chores. I popped over to Beth's in the afternoon and there he was, the little rogue, being fussed over by the others who kept eyeing him up and grooming him - obviously not quite clean enough again for their fastidious taste yet! Beth had given his eyes and ears a thorough clean and tended to a couple of broken claws so he looked in remarkably good nick, all things considered; he was very thin though so I wonder if he'd have survived longer term. No need to worry now and he's not going to be allowed out until he's all tracked up.
Beth had been to the shops to buy thank you gifts for the people who helped - there are some lovely kind people about, aren't there - was going to give them out later on yesterday. I went up and down her road, taking off the Peter is Lost posters and today I'm going back and we're going out together to take down the ones further afield.
Apart from that, there's very little in the diary although I read an email from the clerk of our governing body reminding us that we have to do the online safeguarding training every year and it's now up and live so please . . . before the end of September.
It's quite important anyway but also important because, if any governor hasn't done it, it can mean an automatic OFSTED 'fail' for the whole school.
So I might do that or at least start it at some point today.
So that's today. The training will be a bit of a drag, most likely, but once done that's it for the year! In between the daily housework stuff, I think I might make a loaf - the one in the freezer is nearly finished - which I will allow to cool before slicing it and popping it into the freezer. That should keep me going for a while.
Have a lovely Sunday, everyone. Let's hope the weather is as good at the BBC promises. It will be so nice to feel warm.
Take care and stay safe and well. xx
