Heading to the end of August and still no proper summer weather this week, some sun appeared between the clouds, enough to get washing dry but no real heat, no rain either. Everywhere's getting very dry.
I had an enforced 3 days rest from Sunday to Tuesday, can't remember when I last had a snotty, grotty, feeling yuck head cold but "they" said that once things got back to sort of normal and seeing more people inside we'd catch all sorts of things. The cold disappeared in time for me to go to the Wednesday morning boot sale - lucky!......not that I found anything interesting - just a punnet of plums and a couple more things for the grandsons car collection - red double-double bus and a tanker lorry.
A tingly moment on Thursday.............. I was driving along a country lane and saw the Red Arrows fly across - all 9 of them!! Looked online at their schedule and found 521714N 0010901E E OF THORNDON - 11.47am. How lucky to be in just the right place...............at just the right moment .Love seeing them!
Flowers on the table this week ........ roses from the garden.
This week I've been grateful for
- Watching the inspirational athletes in the Paralympics
- Being able to have a couple of days doing nothing much without responsibilities
- BiL reconnecting the compressor pipe so I could pump up my bike and car tyres (Turns out I should have been pushing and clicking rather than turning.....Duh!)
- Finally organising the repair of the car windscreen for next week
No idea what I'm doing for this long Bank Holiday Weekend. Son, DiL and the two youngest grandchildren have been away on holiday so I'll probably see them sometime. Otherwise some reading and gardening.......and getting organised for next week which is a bit busier.
