Swimming on Wednesday and there were just 4 people in the pool and no one had booked the fast half so we all spread out and were able to go up and down rather than round and round. I'm aiming to go 3 times a fortnight if possible and if I don't get fed up with driving.
On Thursday it was an early start with a drive over to the coast to collect the nearly 4 year old Eldest Granddaughter and bring her back here for the day (she's had a cold so couldn't go to childminder for a few days). 45 minutes drive there and back twice in a day ...............very glad it's not a regular thing.......I could never be a commuter!
I think we had every game out of the cupboard to play during the day. She's getting very good at numbers and counting, and talks and fidgets non-stop. I spent the evening after getting home again in a state of shock flat out on the settee!
On Friday I saw a man about some tree cutting. Next door neighbours are worried about the Ash tree in the boundary at the bottom of the garden, branches overhang their hot tub and it's so big that if it were to come down sideways it would land on their new timber framed/glass extension (which must have cost them a small fortune). The two damson trees are dropping damsons on their decking and on their driveway - so they are coming down to hedge height too - should mean fewer wasps too. This work will be done in December and will provide me with wood for winter of 2022/23 - that's looking forward a long way, but I've said often that I'll stay here as long as I have wood for the fire and enough energy to carry it into the house.
This week I'm Grateful for
- Being able to help out with grandchildren (as long as it's not too many hours!)
- A long list of jobs that need doing soon, so I'll never be bored.
Just a couple of days off the blog has given me time to prepare some posts for next week, so I will be back Monday with drivel or ramblings of some sort.
Have a happy weekend
