At last the weather feels fine enough for us to venture out into the garden and start a general tidy up ready for the new season's planting. Dead plants in the front garden were cleared and in the back the over-wintering leeks were dug up. Some were for soup for today and tomorrow and some I'm keeping as veg for the meals this week.
I peeled a couple of spuds to go into the soup. It was so warm outside so I used the patio table as my work bench.
All the waste went straight into the compost.
The old runner bean frame was pulled down and I'll take off the dead stems tomorrow.
The soup was made and eaten and, as there is no pic of the soup, I'll finish with a pic of puss cat enjoying the sunshine in the greenhouse.
Getting back to fitness after a major operation takes time - baby steps each day.
From my seat at the Tower ballroom I see many people keeping fit by dancing. I'm now able to hold my own in all of the dances.
To my left is the stage where the organist plays for the sequence and ballroom dances.
Above me are the extravagant light fittings in the ballroom.
Behind me is a picture in tiles comparing the height of different towers in the world.
And in front of me is my fan - it's hot work tripping the light fantastic - and my water to keep me going.
Not only did I dance all afternoon but I also walked home too. That's my exercise for the day - done in the beautiful surroundings of the Ballroom. One of my favourite hobbies is helping with my recovery journey. Can't be bad. I shall be walking tomorrow.
