Outside my window... Hazy sunshine, bit breezy but the blossom on all the trees is so magnificent.
I am thinking... how I managed to get up at 5. 15 am this morning to help Ian leave at 6am to drive north to Hertfordshire where he is working on building wardrobes, storage units and decorating our daughter-in-law-to be's home.
I am thankful for... feeling better and hoping the pain from the damaged limit will go so my right thigh no longer feels like a heavy weight as I walk.
From the learning rooms... Just Ian will be working on his next TMA for his OU maths course.
From the kitchen... Not much happening there, just some drying up but will soon be preparing a lunch for myself.
I am thankful for...finding an outfit from CC (originally Country Casuals) for son's wedding in June. Just the hat and footwear to find now.
.I am wearing... M & S black trousers and striped blouse from Thomas Pink. Really need a jumper or cardigan on too.
I am going... to meeting of Breathe Easy, a support group of British Lung Foundation. (I suffer from asthma & bronchiectasis - and I'm a lifetime non smoker)
I am reading... Susan Hill's latest Simon Serailler crime novel called "The shadows in the street"
I am hoping... to fit in climbing Mount Ironmore.
I am hearing... an aircraft flying over. The peace and clean air was so good when Heathrow airport was closed. I do have sympathy for travellers but there is a silver lining to every disaster.
Around the house... silence, apart from a ticking clock.
One of my favourite things... having the house to myself for once.
A few plans for the rest of the week: voluntary work at the local studies library, no particular plans for the Bank Holiday weekend.
Here is a picture for thought I am sharing. This is our local suburban High Street where last Saturday our patron saint's day, St. George's day was celebrated with a procession, the street was closed to cars and there were charity stalls, food and drink and children's activities. The community has been trying to be noticed, we are a neglected part of the borough as we don't have celebrities living here and most of the properties are 1930s rather than fashionable Georgian and Victorian piles. However, the properties are good sizes, more realistic prices and there are many professional residents here who appreciate the good train service into London, the village atmosphere, the personal service in the local shops and good primary schools
