Up at 8am, Rob cooked breakfast and I left at 9.30am.

Dalton Sq closed for parking so left car on Moorlands and walked down to LBC.

Church service and then Lighthouse. Topic was Revelation and we ended the session with a party.

Drove home and met Naomi and parents at The Barn. My lunch was already ordered. Roast beef came with a huge Yorkshire pudding.

Rob and I went home in the car, Naomi and Hilary started walking round the block.

We had a cup of tea and then set off walking the block in the opposite direction and met at bottom of Nicky Nook and then we walked home together.

I then spent the rest of the day in the snug.

We had cheese and biscuits for tea and watched the ATP tennis final.

Up at 6.30am, breakfast and walked Katie before heading down to school.

Early Birds was quiet. Had a long chat with Mrs Peters about governors.

Over to village hall for Fitcamp. A slightly different circuit with two running stations and we finished with 50 squats.

Met Naomi and Katie outside, we collected Pluto and headed home. Dogs went a bit crazy running up and down stairs while I showered and changed.

Had a quick cup of tea and read of paper.

Walked Pluto back down hill and came home.

Naomi went out to do some shopping.

I had lunch.

When Naomi came back we unpacked the shopping.

Naomi left to go to Lancaster to collect parents and shortly after I drove up to Calder Vale. Drove up via Strickens Lane as there were cars across Long Lane.

First time run included a drop at Garstang Academy. Maybe that makes things easier.

David the plumber arrived shortly after me and while I had lunch he started work on central heating.

At 3pm I left for school leaving David and mate working on swapping a radiator.
