It was a quick trip round Lidl this morning as Amy had her hearing test at 10.30am. Not that it takes long to do the shopping anyway, 40 minutes max usually. There are 5 aisles in Lidl so it's hard to spend hours in there, unlike some of the bigger supermarkets. My healthy treats today were raspberry and peach tea bags and some plums.
I also picked up 3 geraniums. No chance of me going out to plant them up though. It's been pouring down and it's freezing.
Amy's hearing test went fine. Her hearing is within the normal range although she seems to suffer from APD (auditory processing disorder), which sounds quite dramatic doesn't it, but basically it means she struggles to hear people if there's background noise or a group of people all talking at once. It's just one of those things and there's nothing that can be done about it.
At the table tonight Thomas was telling us he'd read a book at school about a man who is a micro-sculptor. He couldn't remember his name so I looked him up and he's called Willard Wigan. You may have heard of him, he sculpts things so small they can fit inside the eye of a needle. Anyway, while I was looking up his name I discovered he's got an exhibition at Manchester Central Library in May, so I've booked some tickets and we're off to have a look on Saturday.
And that's about it for today. I've been sewing more taggies, playing topple with Thomas and reading blogs.
We're not going dancing tonight. I'm freezing and straight after tea I put my PJ's and housecoat on. I really don't feel like getting dressed again and going out. It doesn't start til 8.15 either so it's quite a late class. Instead I'm going to snuggle up on the sofa and watch Kirstie and Phil who I have a bit of a soft spot for. He only has to smile and I'm smitten.
