I'd almost forgotten about my Saturday Round-up posts with the things to be grateful list because I've not done one since November.
Finally after 5 weeks I got back to the swimming pool. It was the knee injury that made me miss it to start with, then Christmas. More weeks without swimming than since I started in May 2018 and so good to swim again although I limited the number of lengths to save aggravating my knee too much too soon.
On Wednesday I had my Physio appointment, she showed me some new exercises for my knee and my back but said the knee was healing well, although swimming breast-stroke is not the best for knees apparently (trouble is I sink doing anything else).
Popped over to the coast to visit Youngest and Florence, she's just started ballet classes and showed me how she could point her toes 🩰
And at last I finished reading my first book of the year. I need to read more - it's library van day next week and I've still got a large heap to read and that's without counting the 9 books I had for Christmas
This week I'm grateful for
- Swimming again
- Free easily accessible physio treatment.
- First snowdrops in the lane
Already now the snowdrop dares appear,
The first pale blossom of th'unripen'd year
As Flora's breath, by some transforming power,
Had chang'd an icicle into a flower,
Its name and hue the scentless plant retains,
And winter lingers in its icy veins.

If I want to be ethical about shopping would it be better to
- short drive to shop locally at the Co-op in Eye or Debenham (both about 5 miles away) even though all their fruit and veg is packed in plastic bags? OR
- drive to Stowmarket or Diss (both about 12 miles) so I can shop in Asda or Morrisons where they have loose fruit where I can use my new produce bags?
The blinkin' obvious thing of the week............in a leaflet about Vegan food from the Co-op
Well, I'd be a bit worried if I found dairy, eggs or meat in a fruit juice!
Have a good weekend
