The day started with intervals which was fab, because of the strong winds still there was no running instead we used the bike and ski erg along with burpees!! It was tough going but fun.
Then the normal ritual of the food shop, I was on the clock a bit this week as a friend was coming over to help me with the garden and as an energy/knowledge exchange, I said that I’d cook them some food and as I wanted it to be the freshest it could be I wanted to do most of it before they arrived. Thankfully as I’d done quite a big shop last week I was only really topping up and getting some specific ingredients.
By the time my friend had got to me most of the cooking was done and so we had a cup of tea and then headed out into the garden in the rain but unperturbed we cracked on with a few tasks well until it started to really sleet and we decided to call it a day so only did an hour or so but made progress. They also drew me a bit of a plan for the garden and we booked in some more days in the future to carry the work on.
As we were a little wet and cold I lit my open fire to warm us up! The open fire was one of the first things I did in the house when I bought it as it was something we had growing up and found it so comforting, once I had the chimney swept to see if was suitable to have an open fire I set about installing one. I don’t light it all the time, in the winter it’s mainly at the weekends and as we get into spring I’ll give it a good clear our and clean ready for next winter. I often get so mesmerised by the flames that I end up staring at it for hours.
An early night tonight still got my cold lingering and just feel like getting snuggly in bed with a book (well kindle).
