Monday 26th July 2021

There's not much happening here at the moment, which in some ways is quite nice. We talked about driving to Skipton today but couldn't decide and by the time we'd reached that conclusion it was too late to go anyway. That meant there was no excuse not to tackle some housework. It was a productive couple of hours and everything feels nice and fresh now. 

We started watching Baptiste last night. I was convinced we'd already seen it but I'd got mixed up with The Missing and the spin off which is Baptiste. The storyline has a 14 month 'now and then' time line and even though the 2 main characters look very different at each point in time, it took us a while to get to grips with it. 

I'm loving the never-ending colourful little posies of sweetpeas on the mantel and the stocks are still going strong. To freshen them up I just gently tap them against my palm and all the dead petals drop off.

The first morning glory has flowered and the honeysuckle is having a second bloom. 

The tomato plants are thriving and I can't wait for them to ripen so I can roast some on the vine. I bought 3 varieties but unless I can find the labels I couldn't tell you what they are. 

Crochet wise I've made 2 little bags and I'm in the middle of another alien.

And really that's about it. I need to go and pick a few bits of shopping up tomorrow and for the first time in a while I'll be going on my own. Mark has been tagging along recently and although he comes in very handy for carrying things, he doesn't like browsing whereas sometimes I like to have a good look round even if I'm not planning to buy anything. 

Tuesday is the day I miss Mum most, which might sound odd but that's when we used to go out together. It was our day to do some shopping, a bit of bargain hunting and catch up over coffee. Now things are slowly getting back to normal again with our new 'freedoms' I'm beginning to feel her absence on shopping day. It is what it is though.

Hope you've all had a lovely day. xx
