Memorandum Monday

Waving a big hello to the Monday gang and sending thanks to Sian for organising this link up.

The photo was taken yesterday, when I visited Coate Water Park for the first time.  I met with friends for a photo walk which turned into mostly walking and chatting and very little photography. I did manage to complete my 10,000 daily steps on the walk around the lake, so that's also a first for me - completing that many steps in one activity.  

Apart from that, I don't think I have anything else to report.  I'm still tied up with sorting out the house and trying to get it presentable, so I haven't had much spare time to be out and about.  Today, so far, the boiler man has been to do a temporary fix so I will have hot water later today - I've been managing with kettles of hot water for the last few days, but he's ordered the part and will be back on Thursday to do the repair.  I've also had someone to quote for cleaning out the gutters as I noticed on Saturday that there is part of a bird's nest blocking one of the gutters on the back of the house - I think it must be left over from last year, or abandoned already this year, as I haven't seen any recent bird activity near it.  It's going later this week, anyway! 

I can't think of anything else to say so I'll make this post short and sweet!  Hope you all have a good week.


  1. What a beautiful view your photo shows - I could sit there for hours pondering life. Happy week ahead.

  2. I haven't heard of Coate Water Park but it looks lovely. No hot water , oh you poor thing. Yes I think that birds nest will have to go.

  3. Such a pretty park to go walking around!


  4. Wow: getting your steps in like that is pretty impressive. One of my friends had us laughing at Pilates last week by telling us she had discovered her fitbit counted steps if she waved her arms about. Use your imagination to think of all the places she had discovered she could wave her arms while sitting..

    Have a good week!

  5. Glad you have got hot water again! So good that you had a day out away from the house too!
