In the garden ...
... not the best light for the photos, but it gives an idea of how it's all looking at the start of August.
Yesterday was a complete washout as I woke to a bad migraine and spent most of the day in bed. I'll catch up with blog comments etc. later on. I don't have much energy today but will be going out as I have an appointment for blood tests and could do with getting some fresh air.
The third lot of bad news has come to light. My BiL spend yesterday at the hospital, unable to walk after a fall. It's muscular and not a break, thankfully, so he's been sent home to recover. Let's hope that's the end of it.
On a more positive note, my pension amount and payment date was notified and it's good to know that I'm in the system. Also, the calculation was exactly what I was expecting so there's no need to query anything. My sister received her notification as well. Between now and the end of November I will have a look at my budget and bank accounts so I'm prepared for the changes.
I have made a start on my decluttering challenge:
- 1st = a set of plastic measuring spoons I never use
- 2nd = a white shirt (band uniform) that is now too big
- 3rd = odd balls of wool, going to my sister as she can make use of them
