Sundays are always good in that I don't have to give lunch a thought as four of us always go out to lunch.. (prawn salad for me today I think). Sunday is perhaps the hardest day of the week when one lives alone and going out to lunch passes a large part of the day. Weather wise I think we have been very lucky up here in the North East of the UK. Although there has been quite a lot of cloud we have also had quite long periods of sunshine (at the moment my garden is flooded with sunshine but it comes and goes).
All this does tend to lull one into a false sense that
Spring is on its way (herbaceous geranium, winter jasmine and pansy, viola and polyanthus in full bloom do nothing to dispel these thoughts). But there is nothing like a bit of sunshine to cheer one up in this rather dismal stage after Christmas.
Twelfth night been and gone, decorations away in a drawer. I have looked through my cards (lots of robins this year) and when I go out to lunch I shall take them in a bag for my friend who will be there. She makes all her cards and likes plenty of ideas.
So now it is all back to normal. My Book Group meets here tomorrow to discuss the Robert Harris book 'An Officer and a Spy' - I always look forward to that. The diary fills up - always good. I have no desire to sit and vegitate. While I can move I shall get about. Still driving at present although I don't go all that far, but it does make life a lot more pleasant being able to just go to see friends or nip into town. I had hoped when I moved here that I would be able to walk the mile or so into the town centre but I think it is just too far.
So, get back to your activities, put Christmas behind you. I do hope that by now you have eaten up all the goodies. I thought I had and was
intending to have a slightly frugal diet this week before I dare step on the scales - then this was absolutely destroyed last evening when I had a Mamma Mia Pizza from the take away (with chips and salad) - delicious. Shall start the frugal eating tomorrow!
