Today has mostly been sunny with a few fluffy clouds around and a little bit of breeze. I spent the morning writing emails and doing the laundry, which was dry within a couple of hours.
After lunch I drove grand-daughter and a friend across the city to the Waterworld swimming pool complex, where I left them to enjoy a couple of hours swimming and hydrosliding while I visited the supermarket for a few forgotten items (just like all the other people! I broke my own rule on avoiding shops, but at least everyone seemed to be in a happy mood).
The supermarket foyer was welcoming with a Christmas tree on display.
As I still had a while to wait for the girls, I found a shady street to park in and settled down to a little snooze. The road I chose was the back road to the racecourse, so I figured there would not be much traffic on it. Wrong! There was a race meeting this afternoon and quite a lot of taxis and horse trucks were going up and down the road. So, no snooze but it was interesting watching the traffic.
The girls enjoyed their time swimming, and I enjoyed my cup of tea when I returned home. I purchased a box of Christmas fruit mince tarts, so had a couple with my cuppa. Very nice but also very rich – even though they are small, I think one would have been more than enough.
All in all, it has been a rather pleasant day.
