Triangles and other exciting stuff............
Well, why not?
So anyway, I did actually write a post about how I felt after an appointment on the phone on Monday with one of the consultants in Bath, but then I didn't post it. It sits there waiting. Maybe I will post it when I do this one. I will see. All I will say is that she is very good at her job and I was a wreck afterwards. So washed out and lacking anything remotely resembling energy. But that was Monday and now it is Friday and I am still here, so that is good. I think.
So I have been going to aqua alone this week and I have had a wonderful time dancing in the water with my friends there. Oh, we do laugh at ourselves. Only my leg has had other ideas, and when I crawled out yesterday after 3 sessions this week, it was bright red from ankle to groin in the places the nerves are misbehaving. I cannot tell you how attractive one red leg is. Sigh.
Oh yes, I had my hair cut. My hairdresser and I have decided that it would be fine to try a new style next time. Summer. Hmmm. I can always grow it again. But I may well chicken out before then. Watch this space!
When the sun comes out for a few minutes, I am out there filling more pots with more seeds to see if I can grow the masses I collected from my plants last year. They all have highly technical names like "pretty little daisy-like flower" "big orange one from the windowbox" "spikey long yellow flower". See? I am so clever. Well, I look at my photos and then I see what they are. I am so impressed that some of the seeds are actually coming up in the greenhouse. Now I need good warm weather to plant them out. And no doubt, I will fill the greenhouse again. I love growing things from seed. The peas are shootuing and the lettuce is up. I managed to re-pot 15 pots of lettuce, each with 2 or 3 plants in them. I will deposit them on the doorsteps of friends. I have enough, and having 42 extra lettuce plants seems a trifle excessive. I would go green.The potato pots are now full of soil - I start with a little and, as they appear, I cover them up with more soil until the pots are full. Then they can do what they like.
What else can I tell you.....
Missy and her parents have returned from their Alpine holiday. They had a great time, even if the weather was unimpressive. Missy has mastered the iPad, and has acquired amazing skills which leave her Grauntie and the rest of the family stunned. I tell you, the rate technology is developing, and the ease with which the very young embrace it, is a very scary thing. And it costs a great deal to try to keep up with it all. Well, don't we all dream of iPads and such newfangled things??? Do not tell me, at this point, that you all have one. Fingers in ears here.
So I will leave you now and go and cut out a little more patriotic stuff, because if I sit for more than 5 mins at a time, I lose the ability to get up again for a while. I will be back.
Edited to add - I have hit the publish button on Monday's post, so it should be below this one, if you want to read it.
