Day 2 – Today was the kind of day where we were unsure of what to do. Once again we woke to the oppressive heat & humidity which quite frankly I’ve had enough of. So after a “clean” breakfast of freshly squeezed lemon juice and fruit salad with Greek yogurt we decided to go to the shops to purchase a birthday present for our daughter and to cool down. Mission accomplished as we bought of all things a beautiful coat for her to take back overseas. She will utilise this very well I think.
As with all our small outings we stopped for a coffee and watched the passers by for a bit. We giggled a bit when we saw an entire family all dressed in their ‘Star Wars’ attire obviously Christmas presents and the first opportunity to wear them out.
We ventured home for lunch and decided after a few chores to settle down and enjoy a few episodes of the current crime series we have started to watch on Netflix ‘The Tunnel’ (today’s picture). This is a French & English combined series as a spat of gruesome murders take place in each country starting with a body found in the Euro Tunnel which turns out to be the top half of one person and the bottom of another! Great intriguing series keeping you on your toes. We are really enjoying this.
Now what…….tv viewing over (restricted ourselves to 2 episodes) we then decide to go for a walk, we needed a few bits for tea so walked to our local shops. We find whilst doing a small amount of excercise (which does need to increase somewhat) it gives us an opportunity to talk to each other. As we get older and leading busy lives I believe it is important to not be living seperate lives under one roof. This may work for some people but I don’t think that’s us.
Today’s tea – Goan Fish Curry. As we are trying to eat sensibly I decided to cook with fish tonight courtesy of Joe Wicks. The four of us were home together tonight which always makes me happy. I was a bit disappointed to see that our son had taken in too much sun on this torso so, much to he’s annoyance we all reminded him of the skin dangers the sun posed. The evening finished off with the discussion of a short break to Noosa. We love to go there and were all quite excited about this idea. Once the Christmas holiday crowds have gone I think we might go. As predicted the rain storm came through about 8.30pm and was a welcomed relief to dislodge the heat & humidity. A much nicer temperature to sleep.
So as my days title suggested it was a mixed day of events. Andrew is back to work tomorrow but I have another week.
