To say I am stressed at the moment is an understatement, buyers threatening to pull out etc....... I had booked this week off as I thought we would be moving, silly me, but decided to take it off anyway as I am emotionally and physically drained. In-between packing yet more boxes and chasing our elusive solicitor I have tried to give myself some TLC.
Heres a few photos from my week, taken on my phone as I have lost the leads for my camera grrrrr
In the first part of the week the weather was so humid I found it too hot to sit in the garden. After the bearded one got home from work we headed down to the beach in the evening air to paddle in the sea, perfect for de-stressing and cooling down women 'of a certain age'.
I have packed all the books away so had to buy myself one to read.....um o.k. any excuse to buy a new book. The police on the Isles of Scilly have a Facebook page, the posts by Colin are hilarious and have a huge following. He is about to leave the islands and has written a book about his time there, the local characters and the resident police cat. I chuckled out loud as I sat in the park reading, drawing some stares from the people on the next bench :)
I have also started some therapeutic knitting, drinking Earl Grey tea and knitting in the garden is my favourite pastime at the moment, especially if it is raining, I can be seen cooling off under the parasol knitting away. The neighbours already think me a bit strange....
On another drizzly day I packed lunch for myself and headed to the park in the city. In between showers I strolled around the gardens before being mobbed by the local bird gang who were after my sandwiches. I'm not sure they would have bothered if they knew they were made with gluten free bread. The gardeners in the city parks do an amazing job, I hope they can continue with all the budget cuts forced onto the local council. I particularly like the wildflower area, absolutely beautiful.
Perfect excuse to use the Pano on my phone.
The rare Egg Box Bees could be seen lurking among the flowers
and finally as I walked along the path by the river I came across these lovely memorials to loved ones. I hope I am remembered for more than stressing herself out trying to buy a 'nice house'. She loved knitting in the rain perhaps.
|'she loved her bingo' wonderful :)|
Have a good weekend everyone,
