This Week ...

The highlight of this week happens today ... I'm having my hair cut! 

Social: it's choir practice tonight; we made a start on the summer term songs last week - a Disney Medley, The Way You Look Tonight and All Of Me, and the new one for this week is Homeward Bound.

I'm also hoping to meet with J for a walk but it depends on her work commitments. We'll definitely speak on the phone but it'll be lovely to take advantage of the warmer days the forecast promises and be able to meet in person.


Online Classes and Talks

Today: the diabetes prevention session

Wednesday: the nutrition club, where I think the discussion will be about sugar

Thursday: Indian Cooking 

Friday: the nutrition focus class which is all about digestion


Exercise:

Walking: I'm hoping to get out for a couple of early evening walks this week but the majority of the walking will be in the garden.


Home and Garden

Home: I'm stuck at home on most days as I'm expecting quite a few deliveries so the spring cleaning will continue, focusing on the playroom this week. It doesn't need too much doing in there, just some sorting  & tidying of cupboards, check the computer equipment & re-ink the printer, plus a thorough clean, so its shouldn't take the entire week. 

Garden: Following M's visit, there's not too much for me to do, just to sweep the patio and obviously the watering duties. I need to buy some more ericaceous compost ready for her next visit but that won't be until next week so I have plenty of time. 


Food This will be a week of interesting meals as I'm using up all the odds and ends in the fridge and the freezer  - I'm expecting some slightly unusual combinations!

I also want to print out another selection of new-to-me recipes and make a start on the meal plan and shopping lists for May.


and finally, Hobbies:

Reading: I'm still listening to 'The Mill on the Floss' by George Elliot

Italian: 15 - 20 minutes daily practice 

Piano: I need to find another piece to start learning.

  1. Plenty to keep you busy this week and you will feel so good once your hair has been cut. Are you going to have any other treatments? I expect hairdressers will be so busy for the foreseeable future.

    1. I just have it cut. I don't colour my hair and, as it's naturally curly, I don't need it permed.

  2. Things are picking up this week, aren't they. You have a lovely seven days planned for yourself.
    Enjoy the hair-do!

    1. Yes, a big change this week. I'm leaving it for a few days but I would like to do some non-food shopping this week.

  4. What a week you have planned, lots of fun & challenging things mixed in with those have to activities. Seems all of Britain is out for haircuts this week (I know yours comes to you). I think the sugar talk will be most interesting. Sugar is the new drug of the ages, or maybe it is being put there along side of smoking - no matter it's all bad for us.

    1. I stopped adding sugar to drinks about three years ago and have attempted to be sugar free since then with varying degrees of success. I'll be interested to hear what is said abut sugar in the diet.

    1. G said she'd been overwhelmed by all the requests for appointments and can't meet the demand. I was lucky to get one of the appointments on her first day back at work.

  6. I remember reading 'The Mill on the Floss'. I've enjoyed what I've read from that author.

    1. I've enjoyed it so far. I'm not sure if I'm listening to an abridged version or not, but the story has a better pace and flow thank I was expecting.

  7. You might feel like a whole different woman after your hair cut. I actually enjoyed that fact that I could let mine grow out for 6 months at a time, but then I have a very straightforward cut, simply straight with bangs, which I can now manage to trim myself. And I have an affinity for ponytails and messy buns, even at my age. But I do like how my stylist can make those gray "highlights" disappear!! She did her magic last week.

    1. Oh, I definitely feel different after the haircut ... so much better. It's not as easy with natural curls as even though my hair was much longer than usual, it still wasn't quite long enough to tie back so was just irritating! All gone now though, so I am a happy bunny again!
