This week Peter has been fixing squeaky stairs, re plastering the cupboard under the stairs and will be putting up shelves next week. Another job ticked off. We're also doing some work in the garden, getting ready to dismantle the old shed. The patio will be finished next week after the builders have come back to sort out a drainage issue, Peter is also going to panel the brick wall underneath the veranda where the old conservatory was attached to the house. Then I'm hoping we can start work on the downstairs loo with a new toilet, sink and proper storage.
I've decided it's time to push through the fatigue and the pain and resumed swimming a couple of weeks ago. I'm doing more around the house and getting on with things. I don't feel any more fatigued or any more in pain and regardless of rest nothing is getting better.
135 Sunday A lazy morning, dog walk and off to meet friends at The Three Counties RHS Spring Show. We enjoyed a couple of hours walking round, buying cheese and generally just chilling. Friends came back for the late afternoon and evening spent watching TV.

136 Monday I walked to work, 2.5 miles, my student wasn't in so I was deployed to other classes, got a lift home. We measured up for out next project outside, Peter recovered the bike shed and I finished making our grandsons blanket. Cleaned the craft room windows and hung some new curtains. Next doors almost 2 year old was still awake at 9.30pm so was passed over the fence and I got her to sleep taking her to her own bed at 10pm,

137 Tuesday Peter picked me up and we called in at the retail park for a coffee. I did some shopping and Peter walked Bob home. I went swimming in the evening and swam 43 lengths in my 30 minutes. I'm currently reading The Famous Five. I've set a reading challenge with one of my mentees at school and we're reading the same book to look for differences on how childhood was different to ours.
I made some birthday cards.
138 Wednesday Took the car to work and straight home to sort the bike shed. Evening spent reading, blogging, wrapping gifts and writing the cards I made.
I can finally access both sides of the house, can't wait to get back riding my bike.
139 Thursday After work I spent some time in the loft sorting through stuff to keep, sell, donate. I went swimming and managed 53 lengths in the 30 mins.
Loving this warmer weather.
140 Friday Used the crates with lids to rearrange the under cupboard stuff. Peter treated me and my friend to a take out instead of chips, then collected neighbour from work at 11pm.
This is how I rocked up to collect the neighbour at 11pm, thankfully no one around.
141 Saturday Several loads of washing went in, on the line, including the bedding. Spent the rest of the day sorting through the sheds and creating a pile for the tip, ready to dismantle the larger shed next week. Planted out some seedlings and cut back the shrubs in the front garden.
I've no idea when or why I was blocked but it must've been a while ago.
