1) appt for routine checkup thing went very smoothly (bonus points for the nurse for noticing my preferred name on record and correcting to use it).
2) new work are ordering track ball for me.
3) there were lots of very reduced sandwiches in the coop so I splurged on chipshop chips and we had posh sandwiches and chips for dinner.
1️⃣ DD's middle of the night meltdown set her up for the day, and she's been perfectly happy, today. Must have got it out of her system, whatever it was.
2️⃣ Didn't get wet on our walk, which was pretty jammy, considering how much it has rained today.
3️⃣ Got through all the jobs I needed to do, today - laundry, dishes, etc - and read the last section of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children in time to grill DS about it, tomorrow.
My #3goodthings today
Via Google translate my Polish neighbour and I chose a plant to put in the churchyard so she can see it from her garden - honeysuckle
I was reminded that counting your blessings in your head is okay, writing them down is better but speaking them out loud to yourself, to someone else or on here as #3goodthings is better
My bat box is being put up for me next week
This is Phlomis russeliana aka Turkish sage - there’s lots of information on this wiki page https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phlomis_russeliana
I went for a long walk to check out the steepness for a future running route
My neighbour made me a wind shield for the outdoors tomatoes ( trust me it gets windy here)
I made roasted butternut squash risotto for tea
I know it's early but I've had such a nice Saturday
🌼🏵️ Went to the garden centre and bought some flowers for the tubs in the garden.
🍾🍊 Drank mimosas in the garden till I felt tipsy
🍜🥡Left over Chinese food for lunch (kung po chicken and Singapore noodles)
