That describes our week so far. Nothing of much excitement, just one little "treat" after another.
On Tuesday one of P's friends called around to drop off his dad's bicycle as he was unable to use it any more and P had said he would buy it. It looked hardly used and P was quite pleased with it. He rode it down to the park that evening for the Park Run but on the way home the gear cable snapped and fell off so now the bike is at the repair shop.
Yesterday morning he drove to Peel to meet a friend for a long run so I had the luxury of a morning to myself. I dressed in smart(ish) clothes put on a little makeup and walked into town. I mooched around some of the little shops that P usually avoids (clothes, shoes, girly stuff) then had a coffee. I also called into the estate agent to make an appointment to view a bungalow. P had previously dismissed it because of the price but I wanted to take a look anyway.
It was such a lovely evening yesterday that we took a stroll down to the harbour before supper. There were people swimming in the sea - I would have thought it was too chilly but some were wearing wetsuits.
This morning we had an 8:30 a.m. appointment at the GP surgery for our routine blood tests. We had been told to fast for 12 hours beforehand so no breakfast, or coffee! On the way back we stopped at the coffee shop and treated ourselves to a rather large breakfast and their good, strong coffee.
I may need a long walk later.
Great minds think alike--I also had blood work done this morning. Same thing-12hr fast. Couldn't drive home fast enough to make my first cuppa.ReplyDelete
I needed my coffee by the time we got there.Delete
Every photo looks like a holiday photo - such beautiful views and lovely days!ReplyDelete
Hmmm..perhaps I should start posting the not so good ones soon.Delete
Who ever painted that lighthouse must have been a Man United fan.ReplyDelete
Well, they were made by the Bellhouse company in Manchester back in the 1870s.Delete
Nice to have a bit of time to yourself. I like the two lighthouses at the entrance to Ramsey harbour.ReplyDelete
I like those lighthouses too, YP.Delete
You need to get yourself a wet suit JayCee - then you could post some selfies.ReplyDelete
Oooh no, Tasker. I could get harpooned by the whale blubber hunters by mistake.Delete
Thank you for not showing the 'rather large breakfast' - but the coffee looks delicious.ReplyDelete
I was too embarrassed to show everyone just how much I ate.Delete
It's been so long since I have had a checkup I am a little nervous to go!ReplyDelete
You need to go, just for confirmation that all is OK.Delete
Back in the UK I was always told to fast for 12 hours before a blood test; but not here. My nurse arrives, takes far more than necessary, sends it off, and I receive the results 2 days later.ReplyDelete
The nurse took a whole armful yesterday!Delete
Then they test a tiny bit, and throw the rest away.Delete
