Jumble sale today, Hurra

Hi all. As the title says, mum and I went to a jumble sale today and I bought a few bits. Saffy has been scratching a lot so I bought her some drop stuff to put on the back of her neck from Tesco a few weeks ago but I don't think it's much good as it hasn't helped so today hubby bought the proper Frontline from the vets over £40 worth. She had a bath the other week and I never see any fleas but I did find a tick just on the top of her ear this morning. I won't be able to get it off as it's so tiny, it must have only been on a few days.I want to keep an eye on it now to see if it comes off because of the treatment. After we came back mum said she fancied going out to lunch so the 3 of us went to Secretts and I'm a bit full now. After lunch we had a look round Homebase and B&Q before coming home. The weather wasn't as good as I thought it was going to be BUT at least it's not raining and some of the washing is dry. Yesterday was warmer and I took Saffy out with me and I had to do my 3 x 1 min jogs and she was a very unhappy bunny. When I told her to step up the pace she dragged on the lead. I won't take her with me again if I can't get out early when it's hot. Think that's all for now, Linda x

zonked yesterday

Hi all, as I mentioned on the last blog I was getting all sniffy and sneezy, well yesterday I took a tablet to help hayfever and I could barely stay awake. I'd been looking forward to the tennis but couldn't keep my eyes open for it, couldn't keep my eyes open for the F1 either so at 7.30 pm I went to bed. I can only put it down to the tablet as I've been fine today. When I went to bed early last night I slept until 10.30 pm then I can't remember when I woke next. All I can say, it's was a good job it wasn't a work day and they were supposed to be non drowsy. Started off a nice day today but it got very dark and we've had a fair few spits and spots of rain this afternoon. I'm trying some of that grass seed mix as seen on the TV as I'm trying to tidy up the grass where it's very patchy in places, have to see how it works. Think that's all for now, Linda x

Today Saturday

Hi all, what a nice afternoon it turned out to be. I've been so busy today. This morning I gave Saffy a good brush, comb, trim then gave her a bath. Took her out for a walk later and I did another 3 one minute jogs,that's as much as I can manage for the minute, when I got in did 10 press ups and 10 stomach crunchies, hope to continue with the last 2 as well. Did a big cook up of chicken, mince and pork and will be freezing them after and I managed to get 11 meals in total. Cut the grass and did some chipping and chopping and watched a bit of tennis too. I've noticed now I'm getting very sniffy and sneezy when out in the garden and out with Saffy so now I'm taking some nose spray to see if this helps ward off any more hay fever symptoms. Got a craft fair next month so I've ordered some smellies for the bath bombs as I seem to have the consistancy correct but must work on the scent side of things, as I couldn't have been adding enough as they were too wishy washy smell wise. No jumble sales today for us so have to see if there are any next week. Looking forward to Wimbledon in the next couple of weeks. Not really interested in the footie though, but will watch the finals at Queens tomorrow and probably the F1 as well. Signing off now, love to all, Linda x

Watching tennis

Hi all, not working today so watching a bit of tennis. Placed an order yesterday for my new car. It's a Citroen C3 a nice new shiny new one. Looking forward to getting the new learners in it and seeing what they say. Today when I took Saffy out for a walk I broke into 3 1 minute jogs as it's all part of my fitness regime. I now do a lot of walking and keep upping the pace so the other day that's when I first broke into a jog.I just hope nothing aches tomorrow. Have made some changes to my driving school website as it was a bit difficult to focus on the name, it certainly made my eyes boggle. Had some more enquiries about lessons so hopefully the new advertising is begining to work. I'll keep it short today so keep safe and well all in blogland, Linda x

My goodness and yes I'm still alive

Well I can't believe I've not been around for so long. I hope everyone is fine and dandy and thanks for anyone who reads this. I went away on a 3 night cruise on the 30th May until the Wednesday. We went to Belgium and it was cold and rainy and the Tuesday we were in France and guess what........yes, it was cold and rainy. Despite the rotten weather hubby and I had a lovely time, ate WAY TOO MUCH though, felt a bit of a bloater. Didn't buy any Belgian chocs but we did treat ourselves to a coffee and waffles, very tasty but quite expensive. As I write this it's raining outside but it was way too hot for me on Saturday, just didn't feel like doing anything and poor old Saffy wasn't impressed either. Anyone in blogland trying to get fit. I've taken to doing a lot of walking either with or without Saffy and I'm quite pleased with my progress as I can now walk fast without getting out of breath and can do the same route at a better time. Today I actually broke into a very short jog and I do mean a short jog. There are some nice fields I can wander across and there is one in particular where I turn the Ipod up reasonably loud ( have to worry about the hearing though ) and do a quick march across it flapping my arms as I go. It must look funny but there isn't usually anyone about and I'm not that bothered really. Anyway, I think that's enough for now, take care all, signing off, Linda x
