Had an appointment with the nurse this morning to check my blood pressure ( yet again ) The reading today was normal so it looks like the extra BP tablet the doctor prescribed is working. Im just waiting to see if it gets added to my repeat prescription list.
After my appointment I did a bit of shopping in the village. It was very busy. I usually go to the village in the afternoons when its much quieter.
Came home through the allotments and when I got to my back gate I noticed that some flowers were appearing on the clump of bluebells which grow beside the gate. So I took a shot for the Tiny Tuesdy challenge. Thanks to Sheol for hosting this month. And also Miranda1008 for hosting the Wild Flower challenge.
When I got home I put a load of washing on and did a few other household chores. Some parcels arrived from Amazon so I unpacked those. One of the boxes contained some storage bags so I filled them with some duvets and bedding. Another thing that came was a new shower head so I fitted that.
Late afternoon I headed back down to the village to Slimming Group. It was busy this week. A few old faces have returned and there were 3 new members. Total weight loss on the scales for the whole group --- 10 pounds. Total weight gain on the scales for the whole group --- 10 pounds. So a break even week. I think Easter ( ie chocolate ) may have contributed to that result. Usually the losses are greater than the gains. As for me I lost 4 pounds. As you can imagine I was very pleased with that result especially as I gained weight at the previous 3 weigh ins when I wasn't " on plan". One of the returning members gave me a lift home. We used to sit next to each other when she was a member previously. Nice to have a catch up.
Weather today was lovely - very warm and sunny. Tino enjoyed lounging in the sunshine in his bed on the patio. See Extra.
