A Good Start to the Week

This week got off to a good start.

On my dog walk this morning, I couldn't resist popping my head into the Little Free Library up the road. Although I don't really need any more books to read at present, as I currently have a whole bunch of them waiting to be read on my book shelves, I just couldn't resist borrowing this one.

As I finished my latest book this morning in bed, I think I might make this my next read, as I'm really looking forward to reading it and don't want to wait.

The second freebie that came my way today was this month's copy of Kitchen Garden magazine, which came with two free packets of seeds. One a packet of Lambs Lettuce that I can sow now, the second a packet of sweet pea seeds to sow next spring. This subscription was a gift from a friend last Christmas.  Simply the best kind, i.e. one that just keeps giving, all year round.

More good news greeted me when I got to the gym, as I was informed that my regular Sunday instructor is now back from her holidays.  I've really missed her class for the last couple of months and I can't wait to get back to it. I immediately booked my place for next weekend. As she teaches a great class, that has a disciple-like following, it soon fills up once word gets around that she's back. 

Finally, I had to visit my GP's nurse today to get my blood pressure re-checked, as when I'd visited the doctor a couple of weeks ago it had been a bit on the high side. (Another reason for concern about my health!).  I'd never suffered from it being high in the past, so I was hoping that it had been due to the fact that I'd just got back from our partially stressful holiday the night before. (i.e. stressful due to the damage we caused to the camper van).  

Anyway, thankfully my blood pressure was back to normal, despite a 20 minute wait in the waiting room, whilst watching the car (which was illegally parked outside!), so that's one less thing  for me to worry about.

Hopefully things are looking up.


  1. I'm so glad the week has started so well for you. I hope it continues to inspire.

  2. Great to hear you've had a positive start to the week, hope it lasts.
