One Down Fifty One To Go

I finished my first book of the year, that means if I’m to meet my target of reading an average of a book a week then I have 51 to go, quite a task, but something to look forward to!  This first book was The Human Universe, a superb exploration of what it means to be human and our place in the world, by Brian Cox, there’s a companion TV series which I will be watching soon.  I’m truly impressed by Brian Cox, he’s very accomplished – musician, comedian, TV presenter, scientist, writer, philosopher, campaigner, spokesperson … it wears me out just thinking about it!

I’m feeling really rough today, I didn’t sleep well last night, suffering from restless leg again, despite taking cocodamol, which is a bit of a worry, I’m hoping that it’s a unique event.  In the spirit of being kind to myself I switched the alarm clock off and woke up just after eight, read in bed for a while and then cycled to Lytham for toast at Berties, before taking a walk along the green and cycling home.  I did the washing and sorted out the cats, did the washing up, filled in some forms for my pension, and walked to the doctors for my blood test.

On my way home I popped into Sainsbury’s and when I arrived home Tess messaged me asking for a lift, I wasn’t keen to spend an hour in the car as I had a migraine developing. But I had time for a nap before I went and I’d not seen her much for a few days, so I decided to go – and I was pleased that I did because we had a nice chat and then Tess had time to pop out for a ‘swim’ (really a relax in the Jacuzzi).

When I got home I just had time to start dinner (Baked Potatoes, peas, sweet corn, beans, salad and cheese)  before Debbie arrived home and Anna joined us,  Tess and Jennie arrived later.

Debbie and I then sat down early to watch a couple of episodes of Galavant (season 2) and a very old episode of Tomorrows World, for old times sake!
