 I got up at 6.40,put on a load of washing and had my breakfast. I hung the washing out and we had a coffee. H went up to turbo and I got ready to go out on my bike. It was lovely to get outside to ride again. I only did 16.5 miles but it was far enough on my own, I end up getting a bit bored. As soon as I got back I set our sunbeds up and laid in the sun. H was still riding. He did a 20 mile warm up and then a 45 mile ride. When he had done I made us a coffee and we had sweet and sour rice for lunch. When the sun went in so did we. I got the washing in, nice and dry again. We put the bikes away and soon after it rained. We had a cup of tea with a bun and a few grapes. I had a bath and washed my hair then I cooked dinner. We had pork with new potatoes, cauliflower and carrots. Tomorrow I have to go to work!! I haven’t been on a Monday for ages.

I got up at 6, made a pot of tea and had eggs for my breakfast. We had a coffee and I did a bit of clearing up. H got our bikes out of the garage and at 9 we got ready to go to the track and meet our daughter and son in law and go for a ride to Reepham station where we had a drink and cakes. The men left us after around 5 miles so they could ride an extra loop and go faster. We had a lovely ride and catching up on all the news I have been missing while they were in Florida on holiday. When we left the station we all rode back together. It was a bit dull weather wise when we started out but the sun came out before we were home again. We had a cheese sandwich for lunch with a coffee. This afternoon we sat in the garden with a glass of wine and for dinner tonight we had a a chicken and bacon pasta bake. We had rhubarb crumble with cream for pud with rhubarb I picked from the garden this afternoon

I got up just after 6, put on a load of washing and had my breakfast. As soon as I was done I dressed etc and went to Asda. I called at our sons on the way with a letter that came to us by mistake. When I got home we unpacked and put everything away. I hung out the washing while H made us a coffee to go with our jam and cream donuts. I sat and read my tv magazine and as soon as I had done I put my shorts on and sat in the sun with H who was already out there. We had another coffee and for lunch we had pasta. In the afternoon I tried to lie on my front so I could get the backs of my legs the  same colour as the fronts. I couldn’t do it for long it’s too uncomfortable and boring. At 2.20 I gave up and came in for a bike ride. I wasn’t going to ride today but H has put me a different bike on the turbo and he wanted me to try it out. I only rode 11.7 miles, it was too hot. I had a bath and watched tipping point with a glass of wine.when it was over I made a pot of tea and cooked dinner. We had smoked cod, mushy peas and garlic flat breads.

Work day.

I got up at 5.50, put on a load of washing and a loaf of bread. I had eggs for breakfast then I made the bed, packed a choc bun, banana and a bottle of water, dressed etc and went to work. First I picked 60 bunches of radishes and then walked up the field to trim leeks. At 11.50 Andrew and I went down to the back of the greenhouse where we planted the first of the lettuce in the field. We pricked out 8 rows of mixed lettuce, flat lettuce, cos, lolorosa and oak leaf. When we had finish I had to pick 10 more bunches of radishes and spend the rest of my time weeding trays of leeks. When I got home H was sunning himself in the garden. I had a bowl of corn flakes for my lunch and then I joined H in the garden on my sunbed. When I came in I had a bath, made a pot of tea and for dinner tonight we had Cornish pasties with new potatoes and purple sprouting broccoli. H is expecting a parcel tomorrow so he doesn’t want to go shopping in case he misses the postman. So I will be going on my own.😊.

I got up just before 6 and put on a load of washing. I had eggs for breakfast with a cup of tea. I hung out the washing and when I came in H made me a coffee. I dusted all of downstairs and I think the dust is finally getting less. At 10.30 I put my shorts on, got our sun loungers out of the garage. H made me another coffee and he went up to turbo while I lay in the sun. When he had finished I got us each a cheese sandwich and we both sat out till 2. H went in then but I stayed and pulled weeds out of the lawn till 2.40 and I went in also. I was going to have a shower but H had run me a bath so I used that instead. I made a spaghetti bolognese for dinner and it was lovely. It had onions, mushrooms, carrot, cauliflower, peas, tomato and sweet corn and of course minced beef. Tomorrow I have to work so I won’t be able to sunbathe. I was told I will be working in the glasshouse which is typical.

I got up at 5.50 and put on a load of washing and made a pot of tea. I had eggs for breakfast and then I hung out the washing. When I came in we had a coffee and I vacuumed and dusted. I swept the kitchen floor and then I got ready to go out on my bike. I only did 11and a bit miles because I had my Aunts funeral to go to in the afternoon but I wanted enough exercise to close all 3 rings on my Apple Watch. When I came back home I had a shower and then a bacon sandwich 🥪 and a cup of coffee. H and I went to the funeral but he didn’t want to go to the wake so we came straight back home. There was well over 100 people there and I hardly knew any of them so I didn’t mind. I got all my washing dry,3 days in a row. For dinner tonight we had quiche, grilled tomatoes and mushrooms with a mug of tea. My daughter, son in law and youngest granddaughter are all home from their holiday safe and sound.

I got up at 6.25 and made a pot of tea. I had eggs for breakfast and when H got up we emptied the dishwasher and put everything away. We had a coffee and then we loaded up our car with all the spare old carpet, underlay, 3 duvets and 2 old pillows. I spent an hour in the garden pruning. At 10 am we went, first to the dump and then to Aldiss for a coffee. When we got home we had a toasted hot cross bun and a coffee and I got ready to go out on my bike. I had a nice ride and when I got home I had a shower and sorted dinner. We had cottage pie with swede, carrots and cabbage. The next thing we have to dump will be a load of old timber. Our daughter, son in law and youngest granddaughter have begun their long journey home. Our Son got home from Greece in the early hours of Sunday morning and fang last night. He had a great holiday.
