Monday. .

I got up at 6, put on a load of washing and had eggs for breakfast I packed a hot cross bun and a banana for my lunch, hung out the washing, made the bed and went to work. First we planted 16 rows of sweet corn then 8 rows of broad beans. As soon as that was done I walked to the top of the field to pick 25 bunches of radishes. All this took till 9.20 then I spent the rest of the day weeding. I did 4 rows of spring onions, 8 rows of leeks and 4 rows of beetroot. I have loads of rows of beetroot left to weed. When I got home H made me a coffee and a sausage sandwich. I struggled to keep awake this afternoon I feel so tired. I don’t think I will be able to see many of my soaps tonight. For dinner tonight we had chicken curry which was very tasty. No work for me tomorrow so I hope it’s a nice sunny day.

We both laid in till 7! When we got up I put on a load of washing and made a pot of tea while H sliced off the bread and e both had toast. Next I hung out the washing and H made us a both a coffee. I watered my pots and did a bit of housework then at 9 o’clock we got ready to go out on our bikes. We had a lovely ride, using both the track and road which is the joy of a hybread bike. We rode almost 36 miles. When we got home we had poached eggs for lunch and a coffee, changed into our shorts and sat in the sun for an hour. H went in to watch the cycling 🚴‍♀️ and I carried on weeding the garden path. I have now done most of it so I should finish it next time. My washing is lovely and dry again. For dinner tonight we had salmon with a jacket potato and baked beans. This morning our eldest son rang for a chat which was nice, our daughter rang this afternoon and our other son is climbing in Portland so we will speak to him when he gets home. Our Daughter had been out to look at French bulldog puppies!! I can’t imagine what will happen next!!🐢🐢🐢

I got up at 6 and put on a load of washing, made a pot of tea and nd had my breakfast. ( porridge) . Next I made a loaf of bread and hung out the washing. I made the bed, swept the kitchen floor and wiped all the worktops etc, then I went into the garden and finished the job I was doing yesterday on the patio. I cleaned out all the weeds from the cracks, planted up my pots and then sat in the sun for an hour. H and I had a coffee and then I started to weed the garden path. I went in for a sausage sandwich at lunch time and carried on with the path till H brought me out a glass of wine and I sat with him for a while, it was lovely in our garden no wind and warm sunshine. When H went in to watch the tour of Italy cycle race I carried on with my path clearing. I think I have done almost two thirds of it os far. The bike race was good Frummie won and Simon Yates was second. Well dome the British boys. I came in when H ran me a bath and I cooked dinner. Pork chops, new potatoes, cauliflower, sweet corn and peas.

I got up at 5.30 made porridge for my breakfast, packed my lunch, dressed, watered the outdoor pots, made the bed and got ready to go to work. I had to pick 70 bunches of radishes first then carry on stringing up tomato plants. After coffee break I had to go with Andrew to pull 14 boxes of rhubarb and then I had to go back and finish the tomatoes. When they were done I pricked out lettuce plants into the field till it was home time. When I got home I had a coffee and a small tin of sardines for my lunch, ( H had already eaten). We watched the tour of Italy and it poured with rain with a massive thunder storm. I had a bath and cooked dinner when it was over. We had spaghetti bolognese which was nice but I forgot to put any peas in and I like peas in mine. I have to go to work again on Monday. H didn’t have his Spanish lesson today, he went but after he had knocked several times he popped a note through the door and came home again. He hadn’t been home long when he received a message asking where he was! He’s not going again till next week.

I got up at 6.15 and put on a load of our washing. We both had toast and tea for breakfast and when the washing was done I hung it out while H made us each a coffee. I watered my outside pots and some new plants I put in the garden. I made the bed and H went to the pain cave for a short ride so I just sat and read my book. When H had done and showered we took some rubbish out of the garage, filled the boot and got ready to go to Fakenham stopping at the dump on the way. When we had done that we went to Aldiss where H bought us a coffee and lunch. We both had their homemade quiche with salad and it was nice. Next we went to get 2 litres of peanut butter!! my magazine and Cornish pasties and Belgian buns for tea. We came home and H had a glass of wine ( the last of his birthday drink) and I had a cup of tea. My washing is all lovely and dry again. Our pasties and buns were nice. Tomorrow I have to go to work.

We both got up at 6 and both had tea and toast for breakfast. Next we had a coffee and I did a bit of clearing up. I sat and read my book and managed to finish it before we had to get ready to go out on our bikes. We left home at 9.30 and started our ride on the track where we did the first 8 miles. Then we took to the road and went to Holt via Hunworth and home via Bakensthorpe. On our way home, when we got to Corston we kept going straight till we reached the track again at Attlebridge and from there we finished our ride off road. We ended up with 42 miles and it took us all morning. When we got home we had a poached egg on toast and a hot cross bun. It was really thick cloud the nearer we got to the coast and very misty which made it quite cold but when we got home it was wall to wall sunshine so we sat in the garden for a couple of hours topping up our tan. When we went in we had a bath and then I cooked dinner. We had fish pie with cauliflower and mushy peas.
