No bells here, but there were some pretty maids eating lollipops today as the weather has been so warm. The girls were sitting out on the trampoline and then had a big bouncing session once the lollies had settled.
I have had some success with the gardening: I potted up some tomato plants - I now have Tumbling Toms (cherry), Marmande (large), Pomodoro (Italian plum) and Sub Arctic Plenty (normal!) varieties all potted up and growing to the next stage. In a couple of weeks, I am hoping that they will be sturdy enough to put outside in the troughs in the sun. I also sowed some more seeds for rosemary, cucumber and cape gooseberry. They all need to be warmer so they are in a covered seed tray on the kitchen windowsill. The peas didn't get the string over them yet, and the strawberries haven't been netted yet either, but I did spend another 45 minutes weeding them.
I wore the contact lenses for two and a half hours when we got home this afternoon, and getting them out was much easier as I went to Boots and bought a magnifying mirror which stands at just the right height so I could see what I was doing much more easily. I have three pairs left now, so keeping one for the day of the appointment means that there are just two more occasions on which I can try them this week - possibly Monday and then next weekend. I want to spread the sessions out a little and not do them all at once. Being new to this, I am not really sure how long it will take my eyes to get used to it - and I am finding that looking at my face without glasses is taking a lot of getting used to!!
We have the week off from gym so I am planning to get a lot of the paperwork done for the exam this week, as well as the lesson plans for the next couple of weeks.
