Hi all

Hello all, it's been a while. The joys of being a driving instructor.I had a new pupil last Friday who has a foreign license and has been driving for a number of years but it was awful. They have given me a bad neck. I was worried it would be whiplash but it wasn't quite that bad, but bad enough. I didn't go swiming Thursday, Friday or Sunday as I thought I'd rest my neck. It's still not right today, Tuesday but I'll get back to swimming on Thursday. Hubby and I went to Brighton yesterday for a look round. It's a bit big for me but we then went to the Marina and enjoyed the long walk to the end of the breakwater and back.Back to work today but not too bad. I'm just sitting and watching a Robin on the fatball but still no one wants to move into my birdhouses, perhaps they never will, time will tell. Linda x

Hi all. Today hubby and I went swimming and I did 50 mins and really enjoyed myself, no having to talk myself into going today. Had a coffee after but the service was bad and coffee not great so we may go to Starbucks after swimming next time. I've had a headache all day, just can't seem to shift it. Managed to cut the grass but did sting myself with a stinging nettle I pulled up. Ruined a pair of joggers with decking stain and have the same stain all over my hands.Cooked a nice roast chicken dinner for hubby and mum and Saffy had some too, she was a happy bunny. Talking about Saffy must get her over the field in a minute before it gets dark. After our walk I must do a bit more ironing, mind you I enjoy that.Have seen a couple of blue tits on the new peanut feeder but still no one in the bird houses yet.Signing off as I must go for that walk, Linda x

Still no takers, ah bless.

Hello to one and all. I've still got to report my bird houses are empty. We bought a new peanut feeder and that's very closeby to encourage someone to move in but alas no one has yet. Today I had a big debate with MYSELF while sitting on the edge of the bed this morning. It was about going swimming or not. I got up, pulled the covers back and had a talk wether to go or not. I'm thinking the bed is warm do I really want to get in the car and get wet and take about 2 hrs out of my day when I could just go back to bed. In the end, I'm thinking, new dresses to get I went, hurra and really enjoyed it too. I can now do 1 length freestyle and 1 length breastroke with no stopping at either end for 40 mins. It shows how my fitness levels have changed and if the breathing is right it is ok, I'm really pleased with myself. I want to add another 5 mins to my time in the future just for good measure. Wanted to go for a run and baby jog for 2 days but right in the middle of my left knee it hurt everytime I moved it, so I couldn't go. Hope the weather stays dry over the weekend so I can get the grass cut and I really need to do a dump run. Must be off now as huby and I will take "the Saff " out, Linda x

Today 2nd Sept

Hi everyone, what a lovely sunny, warm day it's been here in Guildford. I've added a new picture of a couple of new bird boxes we've put up in the garden, I'm just waiting for someone to move in. This came about because we noticed a couple of blue tits in the garden and they were using a shelf that we had to plug up so to speak and I felt so guilty about it we bought the 2 houses for them. On the first day which was Monday a blue tit looked in both boxes but never actually got the whole way in. I've been watching every night but so far no takers. I keep watching and I do hope they do like the boxes and eventually move in, I'm already thinking about the baby bird photos I can take, talk about get ahead of myself, fingers and everything crossed. Just off now to take "The Saff " out for a trip around the field. Her limp seems to be a lot better now. Signing off, take care and if it's sunny where you are, enjoy, Linda x
