I've had a lovely day today. Dh has been out with friends with the car so I walked to the allotment this morning and did some digging. It was pretty hard work but I really wanted to get some of the beds turned before it starts raining again next week.
I walked back and had some lunch and a coffee, had a bit more of a clean and tidy up. I then did some reading. I'm enjoying Voices From The Home Front by Felicity Goodall. After getting hot with all the digging at the allotment, once i sat down I felt quite cold so I got some logs in and I've got the woodburner on. I then found a programme on BBC I-PLayer broadcast in 1956 about young women moving to London in search of a better life and what their options are and what happens to some of them. They interviewed a lot of young women, landladies of hostels, employers etc. It seems to be an informative documentary for worried parents and I found it very interesting.
For tea I had poached eggs on toast and an Orange. Tomorrow I'm back to the allotment for more digging as well as a walk, I'm sorting charity bits for Dh to drop off and dh and I will hopefully get some walking in. The drain-man bill came today, £82 so I've sent a cheque off for that too.
In bed tonight I'll carry on reading a fictional book I bought written in 1947 called Golden Pavements. It's about a group of young adults going off to drama school and what happens to them. I think it may have been written for children but never mind, I'm enjoying it very much, it has a lovely gentle story and is perfect for bedtime :)
