Today Saturday 26th March

Hi all, only short as not much to say really. I did manage to go to the gym during the week and went swimming both Thursday and Friday. Back to drinking 1 1/2 litres of water a day, which I find such a chore but it's supposed to be good for you and it does fill you up, only problem it runs straight through you. The weather has been lovely and it's great driving around Guildford seeing all the lovely daffs out. I took a few pictures of the girls today and I've managed to put them here. Poppy is getting a big girl now, see what you think. Bye for now, Linda x

sunday 20th

Hi all. I did a fair yesterday, nice location but not very good for customers. Today I've been sanding down banisters and paintwork as we are getting some new carpets so now I've got painting to be getting on with. Just finished some ironing then think I'll head off for a bath and early to bed for a read. I went to the gym last Monday which was fine, did 25 mins of walking and running then 15 mins on the rowing machine, enjoyed myself. I'm hoping to go tomorrow but have to see. I went swimming last Thursday and intended to go on the Friday but had a bad night, awake from about 2.15 with a pain in my chest and I was worried if I went swimming I might drown, talk about a drama queen :)

Birthday girl

Hi all, time now 22.41 and a quick blog. Had a cuppa in bed this morning from hubby.When we were ready we headed into town and went for pizza then home to take the girls out then over to mums for a cuppa and a cream cake. In the evening made some more bath bombs and got the labels sorted. No ironing, cooking or cleaning for me today. I've even been known to do a wash on crimbo day but never do anything I don't want to on my birthday. Hubby had ordered me a pressie but it hasn't arrived. We are having bad problems at the moment with the post, it's almost that we don't get any, only every other day. I'm hoping to go to the gym in the morning before I start work, but won't hold my breath. I must say, Japan is never far from my thoughts at the moment, I hope they come through this disaster. It was fantastic to see a man survive from sitting on his roof 9 miles out at sea where he had been swept away. I hope the nuclear plant stays safe. Linda x

Busy few days

Hi there everyone. Sorry it's been a while but a lot has been happening. Mum moved out last Friday and we were busy running to and fro moving in bits and pieces waiting for the carpets. Anyway the carpet was done last wednesday and mum moved in last Friday. I think she is settled and likes being in her own space again. Mum has been talking to lots of people and was in town twice running around yesterday buying odds and sods for her new place. The other piece of news, we had the funeral of hubbies mum on Tuesday. As funerals go it was very nice. There was a service at church for all her friends and family then on to the crematorium for anyone who wanted to go and the back to the church hall where her churchy friends had laid on food and drink for people then it was back to hubbies dads' place for tea and more food. We had a friend who took us and brought us back and it was a very long day, we were out for about 14hrs in total. Mum came over and doggy sat for us. It's taken me about 2 & 1/2 days to get myself together again. If I do something out of the norm I can't seem to bounce back like I did before. The girls are fine and have 2 lovely walks over the field today. It's my birthday tomorrow but not sure what to do about it. Might go for a nice pizza. We are going to get busy and do some decorating as the place looks a bit tired and some wallpapering needs re-doing where the girls decide to eat it rather than leave it on the walls. just cooking hubbies dinner so must go and check on it.

2 bad nights

Hi all. The night before last I was woken up by "the Poppy babe" at 3am so took her and Saffron into the garden then when I got back to bed really struggled to get back to sleep. When I had to get up at 7.30 I was so tired and grumpy. Did my work and for the last couple of days mum and I have been taking stuff over to her new place ready for the move. I had an early night last night as I was so tired but woke up at 2.40am with the most amazing migraine, I thought my head would explode. Anyone who gets these bad heads will know what I'm talking about. I got up and took a couple of tablets and a tablet from the doctor for migraines and thankfully went back to sleep. When I got up this morning I had a tight chest and didn't feel great but went and did my first lesson. I had a slight gap until my next lesson so I popped in the docs and asked if I should try and make an app or go to the hospital. They actually fitted me in and he took my blood pressure and had a listen to my chest and said it may be a result of my bad head and to go home and relax for the rest of the day, which I did. Caught up with Holby and something else and later I'll have a nice hot bath and try another early night. Won't get a lie in though as I have a 7.05am pick up as I have an early test. Mums fridge freezer came today and tomorrow the carpet arrives so Friday we are hoping it's the big moving day. Mum was over there today and hubby took some more things over for her as I stayed home this afternoon. After I finish my lessons tomorrow I'll take some more bits and bobs over. Mum only has 2 more nights of us and the dogs bothering her. Bye all and keep safe and warm, Linda x
