    Another busy day :)

    Woken by DD2 texting me to cal her about 5.15am ! Was slightly confuzzled about what/where/when! She's better than she was yesterday , chatted for an hour!

    Lovely dog walk. Just me and my boy and the birds.

    Decorator came. Hoovered, washed floors, dusted, hung out 3 loads of washing.

    Walked up to friends and had a lovely morning there. Sat in her back garden and ate home grown strawberries. Her puppy is all of a sudden a big dog!

    Walked home and met one of the practise nurses from GP who I occasionally dog walk with. Said I was just heading down to pick up a prescription so she said she'd get it and she's put it through my letterbox tonight so that was very kind.

    Cut grass. Again!

    Walked to T to get ingredients to make tablet . Made tablet and honeycomb tiffin. 3/4 for friend and 1/4 for us! My boy loves tablet and only gets the pan to scrape! Tablet hasn't fully set so may have to make another batch first thing when it's cooler. I've put it in fridge to see if it does anything.

    Walked Haggis with friend and old lady dog. He found a football. He ran away in to long grass and came back minus a shoe! But thankfully wasn't too far in ( grass is armpit height) . Then we sat in friends back garden while dogs cooled down and had a big drink.

    Did everything on my list of to dos today! Was most impressed with myself.

    No idea where I'm sleeping tonight as so much stuff in my room. May just lie downstairs. Girls rooms have been painted/ glossed. Boyos tomorrow.

    Pleasures for today (Monday).

    1) Not a bad sleep.

    2) Another 2 lbs lost so now 11.5 stones.

    3) Work went OK.

    4) Birthday tea at mum and dad's - Indian takeaways followed by treacle tart. My brother made me a post box, very useful now we no longer have a porch! We watched half the football there then came home (including my brother) to watch the other half.

    5) Just watched another episode of Humans with bigger son.

    6) In bed and will listen to the radio now and go to sleep - as I'm old!

    Never took piano lessons
    But baby you're a grand
    And I will learn to play the good notes
    And tune you up the best I can

    Monday pleasures,

    Another hot, sunny day so dress worn.

    Capt S working from home so could borrow his car, my air conditioning has decided to not work.

    Paddling pool filled so little dog could cool off whenever she wanted.

    Over to see horsey girl, we did nothing more strenuous than giving her a groom and cooling wash down, well I say we but I did the work and she fell asleep in the sun :D

    Eating evening meal in the garden, we might have had ice-cream for dessert.

    Ampersand thank you for your kind words.
    Frith happy birthday for yesterday.

    For the past two days.
    1. Left work early yesterday as told to leave as too hot. Only about 39 minutes early but much appreciated.

    2. Enjoying the sun. I love it.

    3. Relaxed in the garden after I had finished the ironing.

    4. DS2 cooked saffron rice and chicken. It was good and leftovers for lunch.

    5. People fairly calm at work. Much nicer atmosphere

    Hello, another lovely day here.

    Lovely dog walk first thing. There's a little break in the hedge that I stop at each morning to look through and survey the surrounding countryside and the occasional cow! Haggis got there before me this morning and waited!

    I now have 3 painted bedrooms ...yet still have 3 bedrooms worth of stuff in my room, the hall and the bathroom. Pleasure is its done well, cheaper than it would have been if I'd got a firm in ( friends dad retired decorator) and much, much better than anything I could do and I hate gloss!

    Phoned flooring place, carpet can't be fitted till Mondsy ( son's room) but we went and picked up floor boards. Apparently they need to acclimatise to house temperature. Is this a real thing?

    Popped up to friends house. I'd made her tablet ( bit soft) and honeycomb tiffin slice for a charity thing. Didn't want money as I wasn't happy with tablet but she had also bought me a gift to say thank you which was very kind.

    Dropped off old carpet at tip.

    Snoozed. Oh my goodness. I just sat down and nodded off .

    Sat in garden for a bit and watched Australian Masterchef. Dog lay next to me eating and ice block .

    Walked to pharmacy and met a friend so had a chat with her.

    Made chicken fajitas for tea. Used up veg and discovered some wraps lurking in the freezer.

    Making ice cream again. Had left over honeycomb and strawberries to use up so that's my flavour combo. Just waiting on the custard cooling.

    Son is ill with hayfever and using up my oxygen as he cant sit in his room as its painty! Poor thing but I'm inwardly growling at every sneeze and snot!

    Right, I'm off to get the ice cream maker on! Have a fun evening.
