It is a beautiful sunny day and things outside are looking very positive.
The trench dug to bury the cable is now being filled in and the little topknots of grass will be put back in place, so you’d never know. If anyone asks what the pole’s for, we are ready with a quip that it’s my latest exercise equipment for pole dancing. If they believe that, then they are madder than we are!
It was a long, tiring and frustrating day yesterday, but Hubby is in good spirits today and pleased with his efforts. I’ve been supplying him with cups of tea or coffee to keep him hydrated and all being well, he should be tuning in this afternoon.
Curry for dinner today, and the smell is wafting through the house. So much better than paint! While Hubby was digging outside, I was ‘picking’ indoors and have managed to get the paint off the coving that escaped the masking tape. I’m pleased with my efforts too because it means we won’t have to paint it!
Although not official weigh in this week as I’ve taken two weeks out, I’ve stayed the same and sent an email to my SW consultant. Being permanently at the top end of my target parameters and not being able to get close to target, it was getting me down BIG TIME, so I’ve decided to stick with my original target as set in May 2019. It’s a good weight for me, I’m comfortable with it and I’ve been hovering around it for the past 6 months. This is still fives stones lighter than I was twenty years ago. I don’t think I will be returning to group meetings when they restart, even if we’ve had our second jabs. Hubby has his on the 9th, I booked it yesterday, so hopefully mine will be in a fortnight, but I’ve got very twitchy being with unfamiliar people since the pandemic took hold. Casual chats in the shop, street or with our neighbours I can handle as it’s on my terms, and I have space around me. I suffered with panic attacks in my teens and have had a couple in my adult years, so I don’t want to go down that route again.
