Or even dull? I've just had a toasted hot cross bun and some extra strong coffee for breakfast.
Making pancakes for brekkie then going to Leicester for the day [we have a limited range of choices!]
I'm supposed to be doing a flight test to determine how far I can travel without control loss
Sadly the prevailing and not forecast weather conditions (thick fog) have delayed and possibly will prevent such flights.
Such is life
It's supposed to reach the heady temperature of 13 degrees here so my plan is to sit in the garden for a while and see if I can spot any crocuses.
Surely toast and marmalade would be an option?
No sorry... I meant cities nearby to go and visit.
Why do you need to visit a city?
I've had my breakfast, sweated off 4kgs of leeks and popped them in the freezer and am now about to get kitted up to spend the day in the garden. I have a raspberry wilderness to finish pruning and a new border to dig.
You are SO energetic, cosmos. I'm going to have a walk to see if I can sweat off the hot cross bun though.
I am when the sun is shining lascarina
Singing Handel's "Messiah" in concert this evening (bass). Not my favourite choral piece, though.
Just cleaned out my fishtank, am off tutoring in a bit and then its marking, marking and more marking for the rest of the day.
Gets us out of the house, new place, looks like it'll be a nice day. Wife wants to go to shops. Our town doesn't have a Debenhams.
My home town does - mind you that's about all it's got apart from a million pound stores
Me and daughter are unwell. My mum was supposed to come round today to look at our attic (it's getting converted) but I can't cope with visitors.
I'm actually feeling better than I did yesterday, but T. is coughing up a lung downstairs. Poor thing. Also, I'm feeling sad because it's the Dunblane anniversary.
My husband has gone to the gym while I've been lounging and reading. I shall go and get showered and dressed soon. When he comes back we'll go and take my Dad's dog for a walk, she'll need a bath afterwards because she always rolls in fox excrement - do any doggy people out there know how to stop her doing this?
This afternoon we'll go and open out our folding camper and see if any dampness has crept in during the winter. Hopefully, sunshine and a light breeze will do to freshen it up before our first trip out this year.
Sorry - that post was a bit of a downer. :-/
Hope you both feel better soon.
I'm rehearsing Haydn's Creation from 11.00 then singing it from 4.00. I'd much rather be in the garden, although my back is a bit knackered since doing an hour or so of digging yesterday. This choir is a big one and they probably wouldn't miss me if i didn't turn up - it's a strangely impersonal group, but I can't do that. The soloists will probably be worth hearing although the amateur orchestra isn't that great.
My other choir is much smaller and every voice counts. We're singing Handel's Semele next Saturday and I feel far more committed to that performance. Actually, I don't really like performing at all but really enjoy learning the music and then having it in my repertoire.
@nomad enjoy your concert. I like Messiah - we did it twice at Christmas. Great trumpeter.
Well, that's allowed. Hope your day improves.
