Another week nearer my blogs 9th birthday. I have a few giveaways lined up, had hoped for a few more but no offers to work with my blog have been forth coming. Another busy week with long days out and a back log of housework and little achieved on the knitting front.
Had a problem with a pair of Hotter shoes. so they have agreed to take a look at them and will let me know the outcome. If faulty they will be replaced, if just age degenerating them despite not being hugely worn then told them just to chuck them away, no point in sending them back at their expense if all I am then going to do is put them in the bin.
A 3.66 mile walk along the river and back.
Been doing some meal prep, I much prefer to make in bulk and freeze, saves time and money and alleviates the need to either eat junk or stop off at a takeaway.
Hubby had an appointment with the GP for the results of his blood tests, much higher this time at 8.7 but he admits is diet is crap and it is his own fault. Followed by an appointment with the Practise Nurse for his annual review.
So as we had time to kill in the town so took the dog for a 4 mile walk and picked up 2 geocaches and 2 trackables to move on.
Home for lamb steaks and oven veg. This was one of the meals from my #MeatMatters entry. You can see what else I did here if you are interested.
Nothing much exciting happened at all during the day, the usual routine stuff. But we were taken out to a local eat all you can for a set price places that serves food from all over the world. Very nice it was as well. I ate far more than I needed to but might as well get value for money.
Went and did my cycle leader training so that I can go out with another adult and take local kids on cycle trips. Voluntary but giving back to the community. A blog post may follow.
Took a trip to Irvine to walk the dog and buy a new pair of trainers. DD1 suggested Sketchers so giving them a try. Was as near as anywhere else and parking is free. Popped a bag of items into a charity shop and bought two balls of wool while there. Two balls for £ so worth having. Was actually looking for 4 ply to knit some angel clothes with but they did not have any.
Have an unexpected weekend off work as I had two days holidays to use before 1st April so no choice but to take this weekend off, I am not complaining.
So we decided as the car is needing a good run to find somewhere nice to go and headed to Castle Semple. DD3 decided to hook up with us so we ended up with a four mile walk in the sun and picked up a few caches as we went.
Here is hubby and DD3 with the dog up the hill. We were hunting for a cache here, I had wandered off, found it and wandered back down the hill while they were still looking.
A blog post will follow.
We then went to Frankie and Benny's for a meal. They do vegan friendly desserts and I got to eat a dessert in a restaurant, first time in years I have found one suitable.
Was a nice day out and just what the doctor ordered.
