2024 Week 7 One Daily Positive Project 365 A Selfie a day


43 Monday We spent the day on the beach. popped the roof on the Bobster after a 2 hour walk along the cliffs and had tea and made lunch, read and chilled out. Peter had a best interest meeting over the phone with child 1's care home and the GP surgery to arrange a procedure and I explored the rock pools. In the afternoon we visited McArthur Glen, had dinner then back to the hotel in Barry. 

44 Tuesday After a lie in we drove home via Trago Mills, then onto Monmouth and through the Forest of Dean to see our grandchild, then up through Gloucester to avoid all the road closures due to land slides (Monmouth to Ross) and flooding (Maisemore and Upton upon Severn) We got home at 7pm, unpacked, had dinner, bath and bed.

45 Wednesday Took the van for a MOT and we walked to the retail park for a coffee while we waited. Home via Lidl for a food shop, then I popped to work to do some printing and take down the Valentine day decorations I forgot at the end of term. Popped into see a friend in a shop where she works. Home to spend the rest of the day sorting and tidying and getting on top of stuff I've been meaning to do around the house for a while.

46 Thursday So much done today. We had coffee in town, Peter walked home and I had my hair cut, then walked round the shops. home to sort a pile of paperwork, tidy the desk, have a little bonfire with old paperwork and gave the downstairs a hoover. Afternoon spent in front of the TV, evening spent blogging and a video call with a friend.

47  Friday Caught the train to Birmingham for the day. Did some shopping and had dinner out. Home to sort out photos on laptop and do back ups which took most of the evening. I also topped up the blue underneath my hair and dropped the hair dye pot. I didn't notice the dye on my dark slippers that I walked all over the carpet and sat crossed legged on the bed. All cleaned up now and bedding changed.

I didn't notice we were twinning until we took our coats off in the restaurant. 

48  Saturday Washing machine and dryer on ALL day. We popped out for coffee and a food shop. I spent the rest of the day dealing with washing, making courgette soup and the twice yearly password changes as well us updating photo albums and blogging. In the evening I went out with colleagues for dinner and drinks in town.

49  Sunday Peter not well so he stayed at home while I collected child 1 in Gloucester then picked mum up from the bus and headed to Asda, then off to Starbucks and wandered round B&M and The Range, took child 1back to her house then mum back to ours around 3pm. I cooked a roast dinner, laminated some stuff for work, altered a pair of trousers for a colleague and caught up with some blogging and watching TV.
