I went for my lifestyle check at the surgery this morning. My BP was fine at 120/70 and my weight was OK too. Surprisingly I didn't fall into the overweight range. I ticked the don't drink, don't smoke boxes along with the don't exercise one! She didn't seem overly concerned and said that as long I'm moving around that's fine. When I think about it I'm always getting up and down, popping in and out shopping etc. so although I don't get all hot and sweaty at the gym I'm not a total couch potato either.
When I first had the HA I would take my blood pressure quite a few times during the day but I don't bother so much now. Today, because the machine was out I took it 3 times. It's surprising how much it can differ. First reading was 120/71, second reading was 119/82 and the third reading was 102/67. I think that's why I stopped taking it so often, it varied too much.
I stopped off at Middleton afterwards and picked up some wool so I can carry on with the cardigan and I also bought a couple more boxes so I can keep my crafting projects a bit more organised.
And I picked up these smiley faces and flowers which are perfect for sticking on the pencil cases for a bit of decoration.
So far I've done 6 blue and 6 pink and I'm on the lookout for a more unisex colour for the next lot. I could go with cream or coffee but I want something brighter like orange or lime. Sadly there seems to be a lack of brightly coloured pillowcases in the shops although there are some red ones in Argos.
I've managed to get some washing dry on the line in between the showers and hailstone and I'm in my PJs now just about to cast on a sleeve. There's nothing much on TV that I want to watch tonight, we haven't really got into Marcella. I might put a Whitechapel on.
Being nosy now. What are you all watching this evening?
