Ever since I got back from Italy, every day (except yesterday) has been windy. Though it has been sunny, going outside has been risking a chill. However, plants are starting to grow, and it looks like it might be a bumper fruit crop this year (frost stay away!)
Sarah has been busy revising, though we have had visits from Matt at the week-ends. Her first exam starts tomorrow (RE). I like to play my music in the study while using my computer, but as it is below Sarah’s bedroom I have had to be quiet (strange when Dad gets complaints from his daughter about playing his rock music!)
Jamie went up to Nan’s to measure up for a walk-in wardrobe. He only stayed 1.5hours and then drove home. I hope he takes longer in making it. Last week he caught the kerb when driving away from the petrol station, and as his car is so low he crunched his sill, and yestreday he sprayed it (seemed quite proud of his spraying). I pointed out that if he hadn’t lowered his suspension he wouldn’t have had to do it (he wasn’t impressed).
On Bank Holiday Monday, we had a surpise visit from Lucas, Suraj and Charlotte. We went to Welland Lodge for lunch and the grown ups (though we didn’t act it) took it in turns to play with Lucas in the play barn, he has bags of energy and he still wasn’t tired after more than 2 hours! I hope he slept well that night.
I drove up to Thurcroft this week to take Nan for her eye appointment. She is doing really well and she read the chart better than I could. We watched Sheffield United draw with Preston in the promotion play-offs on Sky (they should have won). They play again tonight! The potatoes and onions I planted in her garden earlier in the spring are doing really well and should provide a big crop. She has bought a bath lift to get out ofn the bath. I suspect she has been a victim of an unscrupulous company that cold called on the telephone. It cost £600, which to my mind is some £400 too much!!! Too late now, it is in and paid for.
Sue had a carboot sale yesterday and managed to get rid of quite a lot from the loft (and made over £100). It was the only calm day we have had for a long time. I took the opportunity to move plants around the garden and sow some seeds.
I have been riding my bike (off road), gardening, copying my music to Windows Media Player (quietly) and making a rather good Sea Food Thai green curry, yum yum!
