    What is everyone doing ?

    I’m so tired, work has been manic, I’m completing a 30 day running streak and I’m on strong hayfever meditation. All I want to do is sleep. So my plan is;

    walk boxers
    run
    eat
    sleep
    repeat

    Any exciting plans ?

    Nothing... maybe a little gardening but nothing else.

    I have weeds to attack. It’s hard work though.

    I know I’d love to go to the garden centre but not brave enough.

    I’m desperate to get to a garden centre but can’t bring myself to risk it yet, and certainly not on bank holiday weekend when everybody will go mad.

    Pretty much this, but OH has thrown out for some reason my kneeling thingy. I have had it for years. Wasn't broken, I use it all the bloody time. Except when I was ill. Which was when he had a clear out and thought get rid we don't use this.. But I do.. He knows I am old fashioned and scrub the bathroom floor and if am sorting any thing out kneeling down for long periods it's been a god send. Now I have to try and source another.. I paid 20p years ago definitely over 10 years more nearer 20..its not fair!

    Other than that.. Bank Holiday is just another day of same old, same old. Walking local with the dogs, not doing much else, except getting rid of weeds as the added extra.

    Nothing planned, it will just be a normal weekend. Out early for a walk, working for a bit before lunch, yoga in the afternoon and then a bit more working (in the garden on the laptop hopefully if it's nice)

    Just a normal weekend for us as definitely won’t be crazy enough to risk the crowds!

    I’ve got little jobs I can get on with, will do my 8 miles on the bike each day and potter in the garden.

    We shall bbq in the evenings while the weather allows.

    @lullabydream I have my mum’s kneeling “thingy” - it’s a godsend. Getting down’s ok - it’s the getting up I need help with and saves my knees!

    It’s similar to this one (good price I thought):

    Be quick if you want one - looks popular ;)

    Avoiding as many people as possible. Tuesday now, Mmm, what shall I do. Kayaking on the Basingstoke canal with the new kayaks or a walk up Graffam Down. I've been trying to get to Graffam Down in May for several years and not managed it. Just hope it's not too hot

    Planning a 2 metre apart, walk with my OH...we also have an exciting date in Morrisons on Tuesday, so it's a busy week for us :Hilarious.

    Also, if anyone lives near a Morrisons with a garden centre (trolley house with plants)..I really recommend it! As it's the only place I go nowadays and can't bring myself to go into B&Q, I popped over there yesterday, paid outside and got a massive bay for really cheap!
    Operation neighbour block out, is off to a good start ;)

    No Bank Holiday over here, so no plans, although if I'm up early enough I might go to OAP 9-12 shopping tomorrow in my local town.

    Tuesday am taking Gwylim for a hair cut which is conveniently located opposite the vet and plenty of parking. I'm meeting our trainer there and we'll do some pavement walking with Grisha because it's a area with apartments in a park like settings where we'll see lots of other dogs, children and Grisha's pet hate - people on bicycles.

    On Friday it's Grisha's turn at the groomers and I'll have my small, by then not so hairy creature alone for a couple of hours. We'll have a little walk then settle down in the car for a cuddle and if I'm allowed, a read of my book! He's such a delightful little man, unlike his loutish brother

    Thats what I thought! Although TBF as I work shifts I never know when its a bank holiday anyways.

    Other then the usual dog walking and trolling forums today Im waiting in for a pet food delivery. Also told my friend I would bring round the big cat frame I still have in the garden for her cats to use (the only use it gets now is for Hannah to jump on and bark at cats and she is going to hurt herself jumping off).
    Sunday will be reserved for tidying up the garden.:)

    It’s just enough for me. It’s still quite low though so requires a bit of strength.

    Raised beds will be next for me I think ;)
