Monday 9th April
Much to many people's amazement, I had to go to work. We don't close on bank holidays or religious festivals, except for Christmas. Driving to work took almost no time at all, as the roads were deserted at that time of the morning. Some new students didn't all turn up, thinking that it was a holiday, so the Tuesday was slightly bizarre!
Tuesday 10th April
After all the chocolate eggs at the weekend I decided that it would be a great idea to get back to the gym round the corner. It is for ladies only, and has a policy of No mirrors, No men and No Lycra, so I feel at ease there and the staff are really well-trained and supportive. I suffered from it the next day, but it was good to get back to some form of exercise after the last month when I had no time whatsoever.
Wednesday 11th April
Staying with the health kick- I went off to the weight watchers' meeting where I help out as a clerk. It was nice to have been missed, as they hadn't seen me for 5 weeks. Lizzie is an amazing leader and makes everyone want to do their best. She is running the London marathon soon for charity, and really deserves our support.
Thursday 12th April
Having a very domestic day today. First of all I had to go shopping after work. This took ages, as everyone else seemed to be having the same idea. I like the system where you scan your own shopping and bag it as you go, which is one reason that I use this particular supermarket.
I also received a new dustbin which I had ordered online. I wanted a bright red one to match my kitchen and the only one I could find locally was monstrously expensive. This one has sensors which open it automatically when you get near. You can imagine my cat's shock when she jumped over it and was bashed by the lid flying open:-) I don't think she'll do that again in a hurry.

|Honeysuckle, and the grapevine|
Today I stayed home as I had a bit of a dickey tummy. I spent a little time in the garden, enjoying the colour which has started to appear everywhere.
