Personal Training, Holiday, and the Garden
|both spirea plants have survived the snow ... really happy to see the new growth|
Yesterday's personal training was as much fun as it always is and, even though it was an easy-ish session, I felt I'd had a good workout. I misunderstood Amy's text about the start of her maternity leave so I have one more session next Monday, and then she starts her break. Provided everything goes according to plan, she will keep in touch during her maternity leave and we chatted a little around my own plans for that period. So far I've been focused on improving my fitness levels and will continue with that but now I need to add in the focus on weight loss as well so, as Amy is also a nutritionist, she's going to support me in that aspect of life. By the time I see her again, so next Monday, I need to come up with a list of ideas for healthy breakfasts. Each meal has to contain protein and should be a reasonably substantial meal so any ideas will be very much appreciated please.
I didn't make it to the music school yesterday so will try to do that this afternoon. Fortunately I phoned them before driving over otherwise it would have been a wasted journey as the person I have to see wasn't at work yesterday! Instead I got carried away online and seemed to have booked three nights away at the end of July. I'll be staying in Cirencester for one night to meet up with a friend and will travel on to a guest house near Kidderminster for the other two nights. I've booked a ticket for a talk by Ruth Goodman (she of the Victorian Farm fame), which is part of the Harvington Hall History Festival, and also a ticket for a guided tour around the house. There are other talks that I'd enjoying listening to so I may book tickets for those at a later date but there are also other places I'd like to see, so it depends on whether I want to pay for another night or two to stay in the area and have a look around Worcester or Gloucester ... that's still to be decided.
On to today and M will be here later this morning to work her magic in the garden. There's lots to tidy and I don't know whether she'll get it all done this visit, but at least it will be started and we can also start throwing ideas around for this year's 'look' and 'colours'. I have an idea of what I want for the annuals but am undecided about whether to have hanging baskets of flowers this year or whether to try hanging baskets of fruits instead. I'll try to see neighbour S over the weekend to see when he and R plan to sort out the pergola ... I'm ready for it to be done now. It's quite exciting isn't it!
Right, I need to get started. Hope you all have a good day and I'll 'see' you all tomorrow.
