yesterday we had nothing fixed in our diaries so decided a trip and lunch out was needed.We went to West Kirby on the Wirral and walked round the marine lake.lots going on as it is the school hilidays.canoeing lessons,sailing,children crabbing and lots of people out walking.A breath of sea air does you good.Lunch was at the Cottage Loaf at Thurstaton.Home and a little nap.
I subscribe to a magazine called New Books.Paperbacks are reviewed and some are always on offer for free.You just pay the postage so I ordered three.Tin Man by Sarah Winman,The Returning tide by Liz Fenwick and Birdcage Walk by Helen Dunmore.
Today I had nothing fixed but C had a hospital appointment.Two years ago he was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and is on medication for it.This involves monthly blood tests before they issue the prescription.Last month all his readings were up and he was a bit worried about it.However,he was reassured today that they are fine.He hasn't had a flare up since diagnosis.Fingers crossed that continues because the pain is awful.
Our daughter and two granddaughters are coming to stay next week for a couple of nights.I decided the bedding needed freshening up so have done numerous loads of washing which has dried outside and is now back on the beds smelling lovely.I finished my Reading Group book sat in the sunshine ( yes,we actually had some sun!!),having a chilled glass of rose.I think I deserved after all that washing.The book was Heartburn by Nora Ephron.It was supposed to be really funny but I wasn't amused.
