So many things to be happy about for me today.

It’s warm and sunny, soothing muscles and making movement easier.

Both laundry hampers are completely empty!

Washing drying on the line in the glorious sunshine.

We have a bulky waste collection booked for today, can finally get rid of some major clutter.

My great nephew is celebrating his 9th birthday, thriving after scaring us all by arriving 6 weeks early via an emergency caesarean due to a detached placenta.

I feel so much more hopeful today.

That I am up and out of bed as I was all day yesterday.
The electrician has finished and was such a clean and tidy worker.
The peonies are in bloom in the front garden, along with many of the big blowsy pink poppies.

My neighbours' lilac shrub is directly in my line of vision and is stunningly beautiful. My electrician returned to finish his job. All done, hallelujah. My kitchen project has jumped from one quarter to half done. Heavy work but I'm gaining momentum from success. Just in from a very pleasant and productive walk. All good. I'm so lucky.

Digging out a pit in garden for washing-up bowl pond. I found it very enjoyable digging, finding stones, gravel. Ordered three plants for the pond. So wild flowers growing now a little pond for wild life.

Lovely sunny weather now too and 3 year old GD 'helped' nanny paint shed, white stripes, on yellow shed, looks like a beach hut now. smile

Just heard this morning that our local ‘confirmed Batchelor’ is engaged, and is to be married next year.
He was as giggly as a teenager, it was lovely to see him so happy. He told me all about the wedding plans and the engagement ring, it was really lovely.

He’s 72 and she is 71.

Two things:
Pilates class and extra are having a positive affect on my knee. MrM noticed I wasn't limping when I got home. I will leave the painkillers alone tonight.
After an hour of trying, I got Building Control to pick up the phone. Inspector now booked to come tomorrow morning to inspection the new drains. There will be another one for the installation of the treatment plant. Then it's all steam ahead for the final inspection and signing off. Might be in for Christmas.

Telephone call from my friend of 62 years telling me she had been released from hospital and was on the slow but sure road to recovery with the help of morphine and physio. Joy!
