Me on a Monday - 19 April 2021

It was back to it last week for all of us.  No more not having to set the alarm or pottering around in the morning.  It was back to up early and at work for 8am.

** We had one little change in the office, but it's a big thing for us.  Miss D is allowed to move back into the main office after being moved around for months on end.  It will be nice to have company every day again.  Mrs W and I still have to swap offices during the week but hopefully it's only until the 17 May when the restrictions change again.

** My flowers this week are Lisianthus and are shades of pink and white.  A definite change from the bright tulips of late. 

** My cucumber seeds are coming along nicely as are my green beans and sweet peas.  I've only got one forget me not at the moment and the poppies are taking their time.  I'm just too impatient and want them all to grow overnight.

** Friday was a good day as I managed to get an appointment to get my nails done.  I have very thin nails that break really easily, but I have to say they had done surprisingly well without the shellac.  They are very short at the moment but hopefully they will grow in the next few weeks and I can get back to my signature dark blue or burgundy.

** Saturday was a long overdue trip to the hairdresser.  My hair was just too long, too heavy and too grey.  I've kept a bit of length and have had layers cut in and I feel so much lighter.  In the afternoon I watched the funeral of the Duke of Edinburgh.  It was a lovely service but I did feel for the Queen.  She looked all of her 94 years sitting alone in the church.  I'm glad that HRH got the funeral he planned for himself.  

** Sunday saw us viewing a property, with a look to moving this year.  All very exciting.  Unfortunately the viewing time was at the same time as our zoo visit so that had to be changed.  Every weekend for members of the zoo, is booked up until 6 June!!  As hubby is off for the late May bank holiday I managed to get us booked in for Monday 31 May.  What a long time to wait.   The house turned out to be too small.  We would have struggled to get our bedroom furniture into the biggest bedroom.  Still there's no rush and as my Nana used to say "If it's for you, it won't pass you by".

I hope you all have a good week ahead.

TTFN.

  1. Lisianthus are one of my favourite flowers & so many shades to choose from. A little pampering can go a long way to making ourselves feel normal again. The house did look nice from the outside & how wonderful to have work life returning to normal.

    1. I felt so much better after getting my hair and nails done. It's the little things that can give you a big lift. :0)

  2. You've had a fairly eventful week :). I think we all felt for the Queen on Saturday and I think that HRH would have been happy with the way his service turned out. Exciting to be looking at moving even if that particular house wasn't the right one. Are you staying in the same area - not moving back to Scotland?

    1. We would love to move back to Scotland and I would do so tomorrow but there are no jobs up there for hubby so we will stay here for a bit longer until something comes up. :0)

  3. Isn't it annoying when the house looks better on paper/online than it does in reality? Even though you have their measurements, sometimes you have to actually visit the property to visualise your furniture in situ. Back to the drawing board!
    I think we all feel uplifted after our first post-lockdown hair appointments, it's the little things that make you feel good!

    1. I keep looking at houses but then I think, if we want to move back to Scotland , would it not be best to stay put for a bit longer? Decisions, decisions!

  4. The anticipation of moving sounds fun - I hope you find the perfect place. And if you think that is a lot a gray, well you should have seen me. I just had my second haircut in a year - and I too am keeping some of the length. I have colored over the gray each time, but I am almost regretting not having made the bold choice to just go gray. I would have been well on my way.
