Gosh week 32 already. I don’t know what keeps me going to be honest. Perhaps it’s now a habit or knowing I have a few regulars that pop by most weeks. This week it was a chat with the other #365 Nana that kept me going with thoughts and ideas. Thank you Elaine.. 🙂
I’ve not been able to go for long walks as my feet have been painful, I suffer from dry and cracked heels – it’s my own fault as I’m barefoot unless I go out past the gate! I’ve been slathering on the heel cream when I remember!
Sunday – Nothing much – mooching around the house. Made some pork meatballs, half of them made it to a scrummy tomato sauce and half for the freezer.
Monday – Hubby went for a bike ride – I told him the sky looked rather bleak before he went out. He got caught in a thunderstorm about 6 miles from home. He looked like he’d stepped out of the shower when he got home.
Tuesday – Short walk and managed to snap a bee buzzing about on some cornflowers. Not one of my best macros.. will have to try harder!
Wednesday – Grandson came for quick visit but I didn’t take any piccies of him. He’s still saying that Mummy’s bump contains a cat!
Orange Wednesday this week was Guardians of the Galaxy. It’s full of action and rather funny. Soundtrack of 80s music too. You may notice 3 tickets – our son wanted to come with us. My DIL hates going to the cinema, she can’t sit still long enough to watch a film.
Thursday – First picking of blackberries by hubby, he filled the water bottle on his bike. They were duly washed and covered with sponge mix. The only thing I hate about them is the staining juice. My poor nails..they are usually quite white!
Friday – Second picking of blackberries. A bit cheeky but we picked them from bushes on waste land behind our local shops. In 15 minutes we picked over a kilo. Half will be put into a crumble and the other half will go in the freezer.
Saturday – With the NATO Summit coming to Newport next month the area around the Celtic Manor Resort is becoming locked down. Lots of crash barriers and 3 metre fencing going up around the perimeter. Hope they’ve got lots as the resort covers a big area! I’m going to steer clear of the area when it’s on – it’s going to be a nightmare with all the security.
Funny tale – I heard in the week that the Americans wanted to close the road that runs past the Celtic Manor. Not the B4237 that you enter the resort on… oh no sirree… they wanted to close the M4… That would put Newport into meltdown especially on the 5th (Friday) going Westbound at any time from 4pm!! Are they NUTS!!!
