Five things for which to be thankful tonight

I'm not up to long posts at the moment, so forgive me.

Five things I am thankful for today:

  • The Head Coach came over with a small rototiller and turned over a patch of land that has been waiting for tilling for some weeks, and I intend to sow seed on it for a small patch of lawn - it will be easier to keep clean and tidy as a lawn than if I try to cultivate it as I realise that I can't manage all the veg beds that we have got now!
  • Some friends came over this evening and we have had a lovely chattery time with them - they used to live next door and we get on really well with them.  
  • The sun has shone on the washing and got it bone dry!  Two loads ready to iron [not sure about being thankful for that bit!]
  • Lots of work done in the garden today - weeds banished and an area cleared to plant tomatoes out.  Got ever so slightly sunburned on the shoulders but still had a good time in the garden.  The FH has been outside nearly all day too - but he had more coverage and a hat on, so he's fine.  
  • Went for a 2 mile bike ride this afternoon to deliver some eggs in the village, so got some exercise in although I haven't had time to get down with Jillian Michaels for a day or two - that's just too sweaty for this weather!  Much better to be getting fresh air on the bike....that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
See you tomorrow xx

Have been away for over a week, so have done a bit of a catch-up!! Don't worry about the YFG, unless anything really silly has happened, they usually pass for D of E, lets face it, I had to go and FIND my son, and he passed. Then on the night of the awards, we had to pick him up from his job in the local chip shop, he went to work wearing his uniform and by the time we got to the event, his navy trousers were white with potato starch from doing the 'eyeing'!!!! But that is another story!!!!!! He still lives to tell the tale!! I think it is a good idea to all try to get away to Suffolk, a change is as good as a rest. Do take care of yourself though, the Carers of the world have a very rocky ride sometimes. XX

I quite agree about the sweaty exercise. Biking is much more fun!
You had a good day! You did all the important things and I bet that made your soul sing. Pop in visitors are wonderful!
