I WANT TO BREAK FREE
Had a disturbed nights sleep. Got up early-ish, sorted the cats out, had breakfast, did some washing up ... then went back to bed. Felt better the second time I got up.
Walked down to the village to get some fruit. As I didn't go shopping yesterday I really needed to stock up. I was on my way to the shops when I met a member of my Slimming Club, then I met another member in Tesco -- and another when I was walking home. It was good to have a catch up with each of them - of course the topic of conversation was mainly about what sort of week we were having re weight loss.
When I got home I sat outside in the sunshine for a bit. The weather has been warm and sunny all day.
Then I did some gardening in the front garden. Managed to fill the garden wheelie bin which is due for collection on Tuesday. I also sprayed weedkiller on the many weeds which have sprung up in the cracks of my block paving. They are a major problem. At least the weather was dry and the weedkiller didn't get washed away before it has a chance to work.
Becky has been in touch - she's not a happy bunny as you can imagine. She's worried about the big plaster she has on her hand/arm as she has running events coming up in the next few weeks - including The Great North Run - and also a holiday in September. Long distance support isn't easy but I did try to reassure her that the big cast is probably only a temporary one and when she goes to see a specialist the plaster that she will get will probably be smaller and lighter and that she might still be able to run. In truth I really have no idea if she will be able to run. We will cross that bridge when we come to it.
I took my blip shot in the lane which runs through the allotments. I like how this branch is making an escape bid through the fence. Its a bit of an Emergency Blip as you can tell.
