Today is Wednesday and I think the foggy fog of illness has finally lifted. Both M and I have been poorly for the last few weeks and we are frankly sick of it! My intention was to actually go into work today, but when I woke up my body was doing this:
Which as you can see is gross. So I have spent the day resting and even had a lovely visit from my dad. Ace.
I always hate the first couple of months of the year, but thankfully things seem to be whizzing by and I noticed today that buds have appeared on the tree at the bottom of our garden – now that is a sign of lovely times ahead.
Also, I went to my second meeting of the WI* last night and we had such a lovely night. I went along with Tilly (who you can also find at Lavender Lemonade) and we were treated to a talk about the history of hairdressing by a local legend. Some parts of the talk were as daft as they were funny – but there was no doubt it was entertaining. The best bit by far, were the lovely ladies that attended. Everyone was so friendly and we such a giggle. Long may that continue.
Right then, I’ve a little more Downton Abbey to watch before M comes home from work and I will have to go and make sure I have got clean clothes ready for work!!
* The Women’s Institute in Newton-le-Willows is actually called the Viaduct Violets. We meet the 3rd Tuesday in every month at St Patrick’s Social Club here:
Membership is £39 for the year or if you just want to come along and see what you think, a visitor membership is £4. You just have to be over 18 and female.
