The sun is shining, it’s very hot at 22º C indoors, and town is heaving.
We had to go out this morning as Hubby needed some new shoes. He wears steels as a matter of course, and locally they had size 7, 8, 9, 11, and 12, but no size 10 and no idea when they would be getting new stock. That was three weeks ago. He tried last week and it was the same story.
So, off to another town where the branch just happens to be opposite that nice butcher, and he got exactly what he wanted in the correct size. The rub is, you can’t try them on as there are no seats in the shop! How weird is that? You buy them, take them home and if they don’t fit, have to take them back!
Apparently a lady was buying shoes for her daughter for school and was stunned that she wasn’t able to try them on. If this is the way forward with clothes/shoe shopping, no wonder High Street store chains are closing as there is little in store and you’re being advised to shop on-line instead.
And yes, he did buy some sausages which are in packs of two in the freezer.
Anyway, coming home we had to stop at the supermarket for bleach and a few bits, so Hubby went in leaving me in the car with Maggie. No multivitamins on the shelves again, little choice of fruit, though he did get a bag of carrots and some green beans together with two sandwich baguettes, the total bill coming to £3.22.
Lunch today was chili and rice, plus the extra veg for me. I checked in the SW Bible this morning and I seem to have come way off track, so rather than follow the guidance for maintaining my weight with extra As, Bs and syns which I found even more difficult to manage, I’m going back to basics as a newbie and hope I can get things under control. There are no biscuits, cakes or ice cream in the house so as long as I don’t buy any, we’re halfway there.
I’ve done two loads of washing which is out on the line and almost dry, and this afternoon has been spent being Hubby’s gopher as he had some guttering to sort out. The rainwater hadn’t been draining into the water butts outside and it seems we had a blockage. That blockage also revealed a broken connection, so it was a full repair job.
Wheelie bins and planks make good scaffolding.
