@PBW, did I ask you what black bag day is?

Today our friend came over to visit us at home. We went out for lunch but the manager was horrible to us because he didn't like the baby wandering about the restaurant. But other than that we had a nice time chatting and looking around the garden.

Bad manager!!!

Support worker had an emergency so I didn't get to see her. Still made it to town, picked up sleeping bag, got some fun bits & a couple of helpful bits, including a pair of trousers, ate at a cafe, then home. Dropped off the stuff, then went to vote & hit the outdoor gym. I do see others use it but I'm mostly lucky in that regard.
Today was black bag day. As it is the last day, we give folks who come in a binbag (they're usually black) for a charge (today it was £3), then the customers go round every table & pick out what they want until the bag is full. I went early as I have things I use the day to get. I got a few DVDs, some books, a couple of useful bric-a-brac items, some socks, & a load of tshirts & some sweaters, among other bits.
After we closed to customers came the real work: packing away what was left. We put a small amount of toys to our noisy coffee for the children, some baby & child's clothes for Homestart, & somebody comes to pick up whatever books & DVDs interest him. Then everything else goes to a charity shop we're friends with. All the clothes & stuff get bagged up & boxed up, the hangers get stashed away, & the tables get folded down & stashed, except the ones we need for Sunday. It's a lot of work, & we have to move all the bags & boxes into an organised pile in a back room. As I'm nice & big, I can move a lot of stuff, including big tables. I noticed a type of clothing nobody was working through & did that for a good bit.
It was done very quickly, considering, as each of us did our own bit, then pitched together at the end.
After dropping off the stuff I bought & picking up the post, I went to the outdoor gym for today's session. Tomorrow is my day off, & I don't intend on leaving the house. I've also knitted & used some stuff I bought to help with chores & organising my kitchen.
I love chilling out with some knitting & some Youtube!!! The knitting is progressing well.

That's really great PBW, it sounds like hard work but satisfying, as though you're doing some good work. I've not found much at local sales for a while but then I don't put the time in any more. Plus, being a larger size since the baby doesn't help.

Toay was spent with baby and OH. We got up early and went for a walk, did a bit in the garden. Nice and slow day.

So hot.  I had to get out all the fans and try to make a cross-breeze in the house because husband and child are so whiny about it LOL 

Meanwhile I am sewing a nice warm and toasty rag rug for the floor when it gets to be winter!  XD

I spent last week in bed mostly. Lots of things to catch up with. Dishes. Cat litter. Trash. Had to water the plants and feed the shrimp.

Discovered ants in the living room. I can't see them on the carpet but they were on Aster's bowl. I stopped feeding her wet food in the kitchen a while ago, because of the ants.

I still need to take pics of stuff I want to sell.

Artie sounds like a good, relaxing day!!!
Squirmy yep it has been quite warm here too xxx
BC those pesky ants!!! They must be coming from somewhere!!! And I feel you on needing the rest xxx

Saturday I showered & did a load of laundry. Knitted some as well & put up more shelves.
Sunday I slept in so missed Sunday morning, but still managed outdoor gym. Knitted a load & got the card out.
Monday it was all I could do to get the card bin back in & pick up the post, aside from that I was 99% napping, the rest eating a bit, knitting a bit, & chilling with Youtube.
Today however I made it to coffee morning, & heard our thrift week raised over £2000!!!  :accomplished: :frolic:
Then did the outdoor gym, then the Co-op for quick messages.
Now catching up on knitting & sorting the post out

PBW, I love how motivated you are it's quite inspiring! Particularly the outdoor gym and the fundraising! Also reminds me a bit of me of me before I had a family. Today Granny is here and we're about to go out for a walk. Then I have some fairly odious admin to do, but at least Granny is here so I can get on with it without feeling guilty about the baby.

Motivated, me???

Didn't feel like that on Wednesday. It was raining & I woke late & by the time I realised I hadn't been out at all it was too late!!!
I had a few little things on Thursday & they got a bit messed up. First, I had to be up as the charity shop van was coming & hands were needed to load up. I was a bit late as the person I'd given my number to called rather than texting, but somehow I still managed to show up about halfway through the loading.
Then my support worker was due a visit. She's decided to cut back as I'm "managing" aye right!!! Normal 50yos have jobs & families & still manage to do a load of stuff. I get tired from sitting around most of the day!!! Perils of being not normal I suppose...
Finally I managed to go out for going out's sake. There was meant to be coffee at a different venue than normal, with maybe bingo. Turns out it's mainly bingo, with hardly any coffee & no food. Gave up on that, hit the outdoor gym because at least nice weather, & bought a stuffed crust cheese pizza from the Co-op as I've never had one before. It was good, & big enough to only need half of it.
Today I woke late, despite wanting to go out to a town... Just so tired really...

Glad your relative is there so you can enjoy & have her help with the baby xxx

I woke up with the right side of my neck and head very tense and in pain. It turned into a migraine that lasted almost all day. I'm still a touch nauseous.
