Carol Singing

A short late post from me today.

I spent the day at the office, mainly in meetings, but a brief interlude for lunch.

I wandered around the grounds at lunch – just for a bit of fresh air – it was lovely!

The grounds are well kept and have a huge variety of plants and trees – shame I didn’t have a nice leg of lamb to go with this thyme! Instead I had salad – not my usual soup. I’ve decided to go back to salads to up my veg intake.

This evening I have been to my fortnightly singing group – tonight it was Carols. I had a smashing time – who knew the ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ had actions! What a laugh that was!

Now it is time to wind down – I may even go find a glass of wine. It’s fine – I’m working at home tomorrow!

Have a terrific Tuesday!

Treats

A quick catch up!

Yesterday was wet and miserable all day. Happily I worked at home, but sadly we didn’t get out for a walk. It was a fast day, so soup for lunch and then nothing. It was a singing night for me, so I was really happy that I was distracted from thinking about food!

Unlike someone who is obsessed with chocolate!

This is Eddie – he is Austrian and therefore adores chocolate. He sits on a pile of chocolate and frets if there is any less than two bars for him! Today he was beside himself because this arrived –

Inside are the worlds best Florentines – white, milk and dark chocolate! Mmmmm!

Today I have been in the office, so just a quick wander at lunch and the rest of the day was full of meetings. Joy!

Tomorrow I am home again – I really hope the rain stops and we can get out for a walk/run.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Long Days

A busy week for me this week – four days out of five packed with meetings in the office.

Yesterday was an early start fuelled by the usual Nero’s bucket of coffee and full of meetings. Last night was singing night! I always enjoy my hour out and yesterday was great. We had maybe 30 people and made a fine noise!

Today – more Nero’s and more meetings. Some fun one’s though! Started off cold out, but turned out nice and sunny.

Found these on my walk out at lunch – I have no idea what they are, but they do look pretty don’t they?

Tonight, no fun singing which is great because all I want to do is sog on the sofa!

Have a lovely evening and a wonderful Wednesday!

Singing a Happy Song

Hello! Yesterday was choir practice – hence no blog! I worked at home, then went to have a sing-song. Had a brilliant time – I do love a good sing-song!

20121023-183911.jpg

Lovely lady in charge, and a very friendly group of people.

Today I had to go into the office. Bad! Nero’s coffee for breakfast then straight into meetings. I took a bit of time out at lunch to book cinema tickets to see James Bond on Friday (excited!) and then booked a table at a restaurant for dinner afterwards. Now I have a lovely night out to look forward to!

A quick walk around the grounds at lunch.

Then back to meetings. Hubby made dinner – a lovely lamb casserole which I managed to eat far too much of.

Tomorrow I’m home, so maybe a little run/walk may be on the cards!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Boring Work

That’s it! All I have done today is work – happily at home – but work nonetheless. The weather is awful – we are in the clouds so its very damp!

No walk today, we would be soaked in a moment, so no great photo’s for you (!), but later I go to my singing night! Yeah!

20121008-173730.jpg

The photo was taken at the last session – great fun!

What an exciting day I have had – not! Tomorrow I go to the office with six meetings in the calendar so tomorrows blog may be a bit more interesting, but don’t bank on it! 🙂

Have a tremendous Tuesday!

Lights, Camera, Action!

Hi everyone!

I had a great time at the singing group last night!

20120925-181414.jpg

I sang my little heart out and enjoyed every moment. I am quite sad it is only an hour, and only once a fortnight – I may have to find another group to join!

Today I worked at home this morning, lunch was soup again – winter is coming and I love soup! This afternoon I went to see the consultant at the hospital about my 3 month old cough. The chap was lovely, and the nurse amazingly calming! He poked and prodded, peered and pricked. Finally he shoved a camera up my nose and down my throat! Wow is that weird! Anyway, great news – no sign of anything bad. Phew!

Home and I cooked Spring Chicken and we went out for our walk whilst it cooked.

A bit damp and drizzly – but a nice rainbow!

Dinner was lovely, so now I am full and happy!

Another at-home day tomorrow and a trip to the salon to get my nails sorted!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Going Out!

My social life is improving! Tonight is singing group night – some people may call it a choir but I don’t think we are quite there yet!

Today I have worked from home, so took the opportunity for a little lie in as I managed to keep us both awake coughing last night. Happily I get to see an ENT consultant tomorrow so we may be on the road to making it better. Having a cough for 3 months is not good is it?

I had pouched egg and bacon for lunch as today is another fast day. That’s it now – I will have to wait until lunch tomorrow for more food.

I just got my car back – brake lights fixed, so I am legal now. Unfortunately the mechanic brought it back with a cracked windscreen! What next!? That is getting fixed on Wednesday. Ho hum!

We got our walk though!

20120924-175730.jpg

The rain went through this morning, so we got a nice walk later this afternoon – chilly, but nice to see the sun.

Tomorrow – working at home again as I have that hospital appointment at 2pm. Fingers crossed it goes well. Hope you have a terrific Tuesday.

Back to Work

Autumn seems to have arrived!

20120911-200717.jpg

Work again, so little to report I’m afraid. We have done our usual walk, and last night I went to the singing group in the next village – great fun! A very nice group of people and some rubbish singing providing a good laugh all round.

Tonight – more walking!

20120911-200952.jpg

No where near the distances we were doing last week – but every little helps as they say! Food has been good – tuna salad for lunch, ham for dinner. It is nice to be back with our own food though, eating out is fine, but enough is enough.

I’m working at home tomorrow, so I get a lie in! Yeah!

Have a great Wednesday!

Wet, Cold, Dark

Typical Bank Holiday weather! Not much to report today as I didn’t leave the house until 7pm!

As it rained all day, we stayed home and, as you do, cleaned the house! It desperately needed it, but it is my least favourite activity. It took all day.

Lunch was poached eggs and bacon as today is another fast day. So that is it for food today. The fasting is working – hubby lost 1.5 lbs last week!

This evening I went to the next village to their brand new Community Centre.

20120827-211157.jpg

We used to live I that village, and the new Centre opened just two weeks ago, tonight was singing night! They have started a quite informal choir and I love singing! So tonight I went – it was fabulous! I enjoyed every moment and had a good laugh with lots of people. There were 25 of us – which I think is a great turn out. The leader was lovely and had us belting out the songs.

Tomorrow is back to work. Bad!

Have a terrific Tuesday!
