424 Sunday

Yesterday, we spent most of the day in the garden getting it ready for winter. We haven’t finished, and will probably give it another good going next weekend. Still even though I did a quick walk in to town to get lunch from Greggs (yes, we were a bit naughty) which is only about a mile and a half. Even so, I managed to clock up over 22,500 steps, and only about 4,000 of those were the trip in to town. It goes to show just how much exercise is involved in a bit of gardening.

Today was a bit different, a bit more relaxed. By the time we’d been to the garden centre for lunch, and I had been to B&Q to see if I could get the wood for the baseboard on my model railway (I couldn’t, but it’s OK I can wait), I had only managed to clock up a few thousand steps, I do try to aim for 10,000 but unless I went for a walk I wasn’t going to do that. Anyhow, come 5PM I decided that I needed to take a quick walk, so headed off to the promenade via the cockleponds. A very pleasant 2.5 miles and enough to take me over the 10,000.

Looks like the weather is going to be dry in the mornings for the week ahead, so provided I wake up in time, it should be a week of morning & lunchtime walks – good for the mileage.

I think this brings to a close a rather pleasant weekend. I must admit that by the end of the day in the garden I was flagging, and it was nice to stop. I sat down with a cup of tea and nearly fell asleep, but after a nice refreshing shower, I felt as right as rain, and went on to have a lovely zoom with some old friends. So, both days appear to be ending well. Bit frustrated about the wood, but on a scale of L>H, 1-10, I’m at L2, so not a disaster by any means. One thing I will need to do though, is get to grips with a Dremel. Not been massively successful so far, but I can learn.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.

  1. Bill I’ve just looked up what a dremel. is … Here I’ve got norm’s electric drills and an electric screw driver… They were well used over the years but I’m sure they still work ? You’re so welcome to them ? If not I shall eventually offload them to Eddie…. I put my bit of garden to bed this weekend, including taking down the runner beans… looks lovely and tidy now …. Love Meg xxxx
