24th June – another great day!

Hey all, hope you are all well.

It’s so hot here today, my feet were burning on the pavement every time I nipped into the back garden!  I really should wear my flip flops.  But then, I’m getting what Paul calls “fat foot”   never happened in England before, only abroad.  So, flip flop probably wouldn’t fit 😄

Talking of my garden, still nothing from my herbs other than the basil, which seems to be doing quite well. 

And the bath is gone!!!  Background…  when Paul and I moved in, we decided to have a shower room.  We both prefer showers to baths, and we opted for not hoisting our legs over a bathtub for our showers.  That was neatly two years ago, and the bathtub has been in the garden since…  I was beginning to think up gardenny ideas for it  😆. 

Today Paul cut it down and got it down the tip.  That spot will now be our bbq spot!

Paul’s also made a great start on the hedge in the front garden, our incinerator has been burning now for about 7 hours with the trimmings!  Now don’t misunderstand me, we do not have a huge garden, front or back, we’re just rubbish at maintaining…  a LOT of growth!

I’m feeling a little pleased with myself, I’ve been saying for weeks I need new knickers, until yesterday I was wearing my size 24s, they weren’t flattering to begin with, now they’re just saggy!  So on Monday I picked some up, nothing special, supermarket bought.  I was secretly nervous about wearing them, maybe I’m not  size 18, maybe I’m kidding myself, blah blah blah.  They fit lovely!  Chucking the old ones away after I get some more next week!

I didn’t go for a walk today, but I sweated a lot doing my housework, and it took me a good 2.5 hours, so I’m counting that as exercise.

Nothing else to chin wag about, so here’s my daily details.

Sleep – have to tell you I’m feeling knackered, have done all day. Not a great night.

Fluid – 200ml of milk, about 1.2l water, 1 cup of tea and 1 can Pepsi max.

Food – yet to have nuts, I’ll probably have them to snack on later tonight.

Porridge and honey
Homemade Greek salad, 2 tbsp couscous, 1 tbsp hummus, some chicken, followed by strawberries.

You’ll notice cream on the table, I didn’t have any, I did however have half a teaspoon of halfspoon sugar sprinkled over.

Tofu stir fry

So a meat free day today. The tofu was breaded, so not as healthy as it could have been. The rice (bottom of bowl) was white instead of brown. But 1.5 portions of veggies.

So there we have it, I’m pleased with today.

We have a treat tomorrow night, a lady is coming round to give our feet a nice treat! My mum and daughter have their feet done by her, I’ve never had a foot treatment, so I’m really looking forward to it.

And on that note, I shall leave you in peace 😁
