In the garden ...
I didn't get out to take any photos yesterday but for a lovely reason ... a surprise visit from P & L who were travelling back from Oxford earlier than planned and called in to see me on the way. It was just like old times, no advance planning, just a phone call to confirm I was a home. They arrived with a picnic, which we ate in the garden, and stayed for almost three hours ... what could be better than time spent with friends. I couldn't summon up the energy to go out once they'd left so pottered around at home for a while, watered the garden, and then vegged out in front of the TV until bedtime.
This morning I need to go to the bank and then call in at one of the garden centres to pick up the rest of the annuals I need. I can't decide whether to do a couple of hanging baskets as well - I wasn't going to bother because it's hard work to keep them watered when you're just using a watering can but now I have the hose pipe it will be much more manageable ... always assuming there isn't a hosepipe ban this year!
After lunch it's the Indian cookery class. I have no idea what's on the menu this week as they haven't published the recipe yet, so this week's Saturday night treat remains a bit of a mystery for now! Once that's over I have plenty of deadheading to do, so I have an afternoon in the garden to look forward to - deadheading followed by a reward of homemade lemonade, left over from yesterday, and time to read my book. M will be here tomorrow so I also need to work out what I'd like her to do.
I'll finish with a question ... does anyone know the difference between core Pilates and slow flow Pilates, please?
