I woke up this morning an looked in the mirror. I try not to do that first thing in the morning, as it depresses me or sends my blood pressure up. Either way, it's not good. So I tend to wait until I have had a cup of tea before glancing at my reflection. However, this morning, I broke the rule and took a look - I have got to lose some weight!
I realise every glance in the mirror, whatever time of day, tells me that I need to lose weight. But this morning, that first glimpse of me, after crawling out of bed, convinced me that I must do something drastic. So I will have to give dieting, some serious thought. I will let you know what I come up with.
Beautiful morning. I went to see my doctor. Nothing serious, but I think it is a good idea to pop in once in a while, simply to let them know I'm still around.
Waiting for the post man. I wonder whether he will have anything for us this morning. Surely someone, somewhere has sent us a letter. By that I mean a proper letter. A letter, which someone has gone to the trouble to write. And then put a stamp on the envelope and gone out to the post box to post it. All we ever seem to get are bills or flyers asking us to vote for someone or something. Or people asking for money for a charity. I don't mind that, as I do give to charities, especially animal charities, but I can't do it every day. Probably won't get any mail this morning after all my grumbling!
Met some friends on my way to the Doctors. I stopped the car to say hello and while we were chatting, my friend's husband spotted some water dripping onto the road from the front of the car. "Probably condensation," I said. However he said he would take a look and asked me to open the bonnet. (hood for any Americans who might be reading this to while away the time.). "I don't know how to do that," I replied. "I usually get someone else to look inside there." Of course my friend and I laughed, but her husband's expression was that of - 'silly woman' or something similar!
However it's true. I have never had to open the bonnet/hood. Why would I? The car is serviced regularly. The men at the garage do everything that needs to be done or at least I hope they do. The bill tells me they virtually take the thing apart and put it back together again every time they see it. So why would I feel the need look under the bonnet?
Anyway, it seems it was condensation after all, so we'll leave it at that.
Off to hang out the washing - yes, it's Monday!
