Safe travels Gers. I think Mothering Sunday is 19th March.
I've been awake since 5am, couldn't get back to sleep so lay reading for an hour or so. It was good to get up to daylight for a change.
Nice afternoon yesterday at DDs with a good catch up with friends although I left them talking about the wedding for a while and played with the little one. Came back to dry washing on the line, just needed a quick airing and has all been put away.
So close to your target Coxy, keep going, you can do it!
Hope you're feeling ok Muddy Walker.
I need to go and buy some birthday cards this morning, apart from that there are no plans. The pool is closed today so will catch up with some housework.
Hope you all have a peaceful Sunday, take care. XX
Weather here is dull but no frost.
Hope you all have a good Sunday.
We are off to see DD in Brighton today and will have a pub lunch. I need to make sure I'm as good as I can be - don't want another pesky gain at FC next week! DS2 going back to uni this evening on the train, so normal service will resume in terms of 'stuff' being left in communal areas (shoes in the hall, headphones/water bottles on the worktop etc.) He's back again on 1 April for DH's birthday celebrations.
All ironing was done last night - after I ironed each item I went upstairs to put away - just to get some more steps in. Extreme but needed!
Hope you all have a lovely day.
It's all calm and still out there but the forecast is still dire for the coming week. Blooming snow causing more disruption.
DS came as promised yesterday to dismantle the tap and clean the filters. While they were "fizzing" in the bicarb and vinegar I tagged along with him when he went down to do a bit of food shopping. I was very good and stuck to my guns of no buying for the freezers! But I did come home with a few tins for my stores.
No plans for today so it will probably be the usual Slothful Sunday. I have just prepped the veg for my lunch and that may be the extent of my exertions for today.
Have a good day folks if you can and ((HUGS)) for our poorlies, getting better or MIA. MUDDY WALKER I hope you are having a comfortable w/e after your treatment. NELS I hope those poorly hands are soon feeling better. Take care all and be safe xx
Nice and sunny here this morning. Little one came for a play yesterday, bless her she's on a lot of medication for her tummy which is still very sore. I took her out for a ride on her bike and later on sat out the back with her while she played with her sand - it was nice in the sunshine. She kept saying 'we haven't done this for ages have we?' Trixie cat was bouncing round the garden, she enjoyed the company too. She tucked into spaghetti bolognese for tea, then had a bath before DD picked her up.
This morning I'm going down to mam and dads for a cuppa and to do his jobs. DD is going to drop little one off there and go for her shopping. Then I'm planning a quiet afternoon with my Sunday Times.
Scarletribbons - yes I'm having a bad time with Long Covid just now. After Christmas I felt a bit better, but worse again now. I'm very tired, bad headaches. achy...generally falling to bits! Thanks for asking - doctor just says I'll be better 'one day!'
Coxy - enjoy your trip to Brighton. It's somewhere I've always fancied visiting but never been. Eldest DD visited a friend there last year and loved it.
I'd better get dressed if I'm going out! Hope everyone has a nice day x
