First Day of July

I overslept this morning.  I didn’t wake up until nearly 9.30 and as we had to go out before 10.00 I couldn’t have my usual weekend breakfast.I had to make do with Rice Krispies and a glass of water instead.

We had to go out as I had an appointment in town to collect my new glasses .  It means I now have both my new pairs so I can keep one of work and one at home.  

We also went to a bank to ask about opening a new account.  Our own bank has closed its branch in town which means travelling 15 miles to the next town for any face to face banking so we’ve decided to switch banks.  I know 15 miles doesn’t sound a lot but when our town has several other banks it seemed silly not to switch.  

I’ve just realised that there is something else I intended to do in June and didn’t get round to.  I didn’t have my haircut.  I had thought that I’d go in this morning to make an appointment but didn’t, because of this:

The first I knew there was a problem was last Sunday when my husband suddenly asked me what was wrong with my eye.  It’s the third time this has happened and I don’t know why.  A blood vessel bursts, I don’t feel it happening, it doesn’t affect my vision and it doesn’t cause any pain or discomfort.  So I forget about it until someone says ‘ooh, what have you done to your eye’ and then I feel self conscious.  I feel I need to wait for it to clear up before I make a hair appointment. 

My list of things to do in July is quite short and simple. 

Grow herbs  I try to grow herbs every year but am unsuccessful. This year will be different.

Enjoy fresh air  I can spend time in the garden, open windows and doors while I’m inside and go for walks.

Go for a picnic  Onr fine weekend we’ll drive out to the coast, or to a country park, and take some sandwiches.  It doesn’t have to be anything fancy.  A simple meal al fresco will be fine.
