Diary > Sunday 13th September
« on: Sunday 13 September 20 22:11 BST (UK) »
Starting early again.....

Another day when I started off feeling agitated without any particular reason. Sunny and warm today but very windy. Went for a walk, really windy on the field and in the woods, was hoping the trees didn't come crashing down around me!

Home for lunch, couldn't settle. Went out to do some gardening but it was too windy so only managed to do a bit of deadheading.  My friend came round to do the small repairs on my car that are required for the MOT, hopefully he will be able to do the bigger ones next week.
Felt more settled later, a bit of company always helps to quell the agitated state. Did a bit of housework then roasted some of the peppers that I'd mistakenly over-ordered. Had some for tea with haddock, jacket potato, avocado and roasted tomatoes. Will freeze the rest. Blueberries and yogurt for dessert.

That's it, hope others have had a more interesting day.

Don't think mine was any more interesting! Good to hear you got some of the work done on your car and that the company made you feel a bit more settled.

Annoyingly woke up earlier than I'd wanted to really so read for a while..
Its our Sons birthday today.... although as he lives in Oz the days almost over! But I did message him before I turned my light out last night to wish him a Happy one... miss him lots and this time last year they were back in the UK so we celebrated all together... 😢....
Once up and organised I messaged him and we FaceTimed, had a long chat, he'd had a good day they'd been out for dinner with friends to a wonderful sea food place he took us too when we were visiting in spring of last year...
I wonder if and when that's going to happen again it seems like almost a pipe dream... flying anywhere is a challenge let alone that far!..... he said things in Qld were going along as normal pretty much...he's got lots of work which is great but has a long wait for the legs for the tables as he has them made in Melbourne and having waited the usual 4 weeks he contacted to find out delivery update for them to say they were in lockdown and not back at work until late September... so he wasn't too happy they'd not told him! Now sourcing from elsewear!
Just in time to add a couple of bottles of Cava to my shopping order before the deadline....
The weather was sunny, hot and blue skies, gentle breeze sat outside reading the Sunday papers...
Thought I ought to do some sewing but... it was too nice outside ... it'll have to wait until tomorrow...
After lunch I wrote up the minutes for our Investment Club meeting as I was acting Secretary... took me back to when I was Sec for the WI for about 10 years...
OH was reading the village plan and filling in questionnaire we've been sent... I've still got that to do.. manyana as it's 35 pages long....
Had a game of scrabble and I beat him by nearly 100 points... I was lucky got all but one of high scorers and able to get good points... he got poor letters.... ah welll back to even now!
Went outside with my book to enjoy the rest of the day...
Shower and washed my hair..
Messaged daughter to wish youngest grandson good luck as he starts in Reception tomorrow
OH cooked steaks on the BBQ which we had with mushrooms, onions, tomatoes ( as I said before tomatoes for every meal...) peas and chips! A couple of glasses of wine finished off with some chocolate! Still warm enough to sit outside...
Message back from daughter to say he was still awake as excited about going to school... he'll be hell to get up in the morning as he's definitely not an am sort of person... rather her than me...
Watched Gardners World and new drama series set in Singapore... not very inspiring!

That's it for my day, relaxing if a little dull!

Looks like  you both had positives in your day, and company..... though I have to admit I was really fed up most of it too.

Very sunny and a strong but warmish breeze. After lunch walked along to the end of Preston beach, no, not Lancs Roobarb!! ;D ;D  Still far too many people around taking up so much space.  6 in a row right across the prom and absolutely no moving out of the way for anyone else!  Mostly we walked along the greens, and we saw a clouded yellow butterfly, which was MOST unusual!

Sat out on the balcony for a while, but rather windy. Another walk after tea, not so many people around, but those were clearly holiday makers and no consideration from any of them!!  I rather hate people.

Some debate over how we are ever going to get back to Morris dancing. A max of 4 dancers and 2 musicians is really not going to work, and I feel we might as well disband and give up. We could sit in a school, or pub or restaurant among more than 100 other people, but we are not allowed to dance in a group of more than 6 in someone's garden. Where is the logic in that??

Mowsehowse - not like you to sound down in the mouth but I know what you mean about the logic of these new rules .... they just don't make any sense do they.... im sure you'd be much safer outside with more people spread out than stuck in doors with a hoard.... personally we're just sticking to what we've been doing all along!
Hope you feel in better spirits today... have more peaceful walks as weekend trippers will have returned home now and you'll have the beach and prom more to yourselves.... I'm sure local people are better at distancing than others!

Thanks Caroline.... hopefully yes!!

The problem with Morris dancing is that we make a noise, so probably people will peer through curtains to see what's happening, and to break the rules a bit the first time might be acceptable, but to do it regularly would be taking the risk of NNN's surfacing, particularly if they don't like the noise. :-X

The government say it is a performing art.... I believe the Federation are trying to convince them otherwise.

Well a quiet weekend! ;D ;D ;D ;D
Which is as well as I canít stand much excitement these days.!
Gorgeous morning, clear skies and hot.
Part of my order from Wilkoís has arrived ,the rest tomorrow.
Mixed Narcissi and Daffodils, smallAliums and mixed bedding hyacinths .
A disinfectant and small non stick pan.
My other has a soft grip handle and if it gets really wet has an unpleasant odour ,so it can go in the bin.
Also some bathroom paint ,I know it is passeí but lots of tester pots show it matches the tiles ,which are like a streaky marble,beiges etc.
Magnolia matches the palest streaks.
Or it could be Mongolia!
Big garden storage trunk coming tomorrow.
So all set to go now with rollers ,long handled ones as the step ladders will not open fully one way ,so not safe .
Well Bolton has the highest figure per 100,000, so my son may not be able to come as usual for his five minute delivery slot!
Thank goodness for the freezer!
Flour is scarce again, perhaps the Mc. Millan coffee morning bakers have been stocking up.
However will that be managed!
Will ring at lunchtime to see if little cat gas been found, son has a break and a ten minute walk ,gets bad neck ache from working on four computers all
day .
They would have let me know ,but I must ask.

Washed hair and put in rollers for which it is much too long ,so I look like The Bride of Frankenstein ,all frizzed up ,but no white streak at the front.
The actress was Charles Laughtonís wife ,name wonít come .
YES, Elsa Lanchester!
No idea what to have for tea, cheese omelette , with salad .
Tuna and Mediterranean rice.
Fish pie ,home made from freezer.
Wartime Walton (?)pie , which was very tasty when I made a batch a month or so ago.
I wonít starve!
Post just come ,leave it a few days before opening it.
Pick it up with my bad back picky up stick.
Well I have been invited to Suffolk for Christmas ,son in law will come up for me and drive me down.
But we will not be the deciders will we!
My knees need a good strangling by Flash Harry.
Daughter phones every Monday evening for a couple of hours ,so will hear all about him.
Cheerio folk ,one day at a time , count our blessings and carry on.
As long as someone dorsnít bomb the chip shop
They did in 1940 !
Viktoria,

Post, have you noticed how much post is coming from charities,  have been away for a few days and came back to quite a  lot

Masks, we were in Christchurch for a couple of days last week, most people were wearing masks as we were, Devon, not so many but we kept out distance   

Journey back from Teignmouth, a nightmare, 30 miles before Stonehenge we were creeping along for about an hour, we finally saw a policeman who was waving us  on saying "thank you" that was nice of him but we had no idea what had happened,  M3, down from 4 lanes to 2, cones put out but no sign of work being done, another almost hour wasted, amazingly the M25 was really smooth, finally got home after a 7.5 hour journey

So now we are in again, whatever will be will be

Take care folks
