Planning a trip to the city

I couldn’t believe it when the alarm went off this morning.  I felt sure I had literally just gone to sleep. I was totally confused! I get up at 6 most mornings as I give my daughter a lift to work and she starts early. If I don’t take her I only have an extra half an hour in bed but it makes a difference to my tiredness levels.

  I had a healthy breakfast of porridge with linseed, honey and blackcurrants to help me wake up.

It is cold today. The beautiful spring weather seems to have disappeared and Carol on the BBC tells me it will be freezing all week  and we could even get wintry showers. Typical English weather!

Mr S is still having a few issues with his back after suffering a prolapsed disc a few months ago. I have been trying to encourage him to do a little more exercise. Yesterday we had a yoga session. He can do general stretching but no strong forward bends and twists. He needs to get fit enough to get back to his aikido class – he is a black belt but hates sitting in the sidelines and wants to get back on the mat. 

My poor old mum has had an operation on her leg, which has unfortunately become infected. She and my dad were due to go to London to see the Carol King musical Beautiful tomorrow but neither of them feel up to it. They had even booked a hotel. So we are going in their places. I am sorry for my parents but they were more concerned the trip would be wasted than they were about  actually going. I have been online to get the cheapest possible rail tickets. I am looking forward to it – what a treat! I shall report back.
