Here we are half way through the month, and any snow that was forecast has gone AWOL as it ain’t here!
I had a late start to the day, rolling over at 6am and going back to sleep until almost 9.30.
I got up, had a shower, then breakfast, porridge and blueberries today which made a nice change.
We nipped down to the next town to get Hubby’s yogurts, then after putting them in the fridge, went for our first walk.
We took a couple of slices of bread to feed the ducks so were very popular. Geraldine was in full voice, and Radar wasn’t far away hoping to get a few crumbs. Notices say not to feed the geese, and we don’t, but we can’t stop them pecking where crumbs tend to fall.

There was a funeral in the little Catholic Church this morning and the funeral company were making sure access was kept clear for the hearse and mourning cars. Numbers are limited to no more than 30 at the moment, though that does not include funeral or clergy staff. By the time we came back, everyone was inside and as it turned out, we had followed the hearse from town. The floral tributes were beautiful, spelling out Mum and Nan.
RIP dear lady, whoever you were.
Lunch today was pasties but I looked up the syn value first and had a shock to discover a standard pasty attracts 21 and a large one like we have is 28! So I decided on fish in breadcrumbs (8½) and 100g wedges (2½) with beans and some cherry tomatoes to pack out my plate. Two days to text/weigh in and I don’t want to blow it this week!
