Me on Monday


It's been the start of a week off from teaching as it's the SATS exams in UK primary schools and they don't want any lessons/disruptions this week.  I'm not complaining!
 
It's been a mixed sort of day which started with a walk around the Marina and a chat with a friend, then brunch with some others friends and a medical appointment earlier this afternoon.  When I've updated my blog I'll be out in the garden for an hour or so, finishing off what I didn't manage to do yesterday.  It's been a day of happy thoughts, much laughter with good company and a real sense of achievement about the progress I've made in the garden this weekend. All things considered, it's been a practically perfect day!

Plans for the rest of the week includes a couple more lunches with friends, a Chinese takeaway with Julie and her girls tomorrow night on what would have been Ced's 76th birthday, the second medical appointment (I'm in the middle of a 24 hour ECG) and a daily walk - I'll need to do something to work off the calories from all this eating out!

  2. I think that is nice you are doing something on what would have been Ced's birthday; nice you will be with people you love :) Hope the results of the 24 hour ECG are favorable! Sounds like you are enjoying the bit of a break from work :)

  3. It sounds like those happy thoughts are just what you need in the middle of an ECG. I hope tomorrow goes well for you too. And that there is plenty more relaxing gardening in the rest of your week

    1. Thanks Maggie. The ECG is just part of looking into why I keep feeling so dizzy. I don't actually have any symptoms of a specific heart condition so I'm expecting it to confirm that my heart is fine.

  6. Sounds like a fun week you have planned. I have a lot of eating out and social stuff going on this week, too - so walking sounds like a good plan! Hope the sun is shining where you are :)

  7. OOh, Eileen that is the problem with those fun lunches with friends and relatives - the calories we take home with us!! Now that warmer weather and longer evenings are approaching, I'm going to suggest leisurely walks with a couple of my buddies rather than an hour or two eating and sitting. I haven't tried that before, but I hope they will agree it can be a healthy alternative!!

    I'm glad you have dear companions to remember and celebrate Ced's birthday. With heart, Sammy
