After postponing our wedding in 2020 and 2021, this time next week I'll finally be a married woman.

Congratulations.

I got married on Saturday and that made me happy.

Chanterelle mushrooms.

Went to my local farmers market on Saturday morning. They had some chanterelle mushrooms in a massive open cardboard box. Apparently they were harvested no more than two days ago. I bought one pounds weight of mushrooms. I cut up most of them and put them into a mushroom risotto which came out OK.

I also just washed one third and put them into hot butter and put in some salt and fried on a medium heat until they were just crispy. They were beyond incredible and tasted almost like meat  but had such a deep flavour.

It was amazing to make brilliant tasting food in my own house.

Happy that running to the papers with shit stories finally has some consequence. It has been a ridiculous but somewhat compelling story to watch. I'm glad decency won out (sort of) and that social media actions finally are starting to have  real world consequences.

Being in the far NW of Scotland with next to no light pollution, and seeing the Milky Way for the first time in my life - and then, when looking away to take in the millions of other stars, seeing a meteorite shoot across the sky.

Great, isn't it.

We see it low over Sefton Park quite often as it comes in to land at Hawarden.

Seeing the Airbus Beluga flying.

Do you have a pic mate?  I think we've seen it when we've been travelling home on the M56 near the Runcorn/Ellesmere Port bit. 

It looked like it was really struggling to get off the floor, it was really low for ages.  It was around the time of the gales back in Spring and we were half expecting to see it emergency land on the motorway 😯

I don't. Just happened to randomly look at Flightradar today and it was about to fly over Manchester from Broughton so just had to look up. Used to live in Hamburg so saw it coming in to land quite a lot. Great looking plane.

Seeing the Airbus Beluga flying.

I live a mile away from Airbus and still find myself staring at it even though I see it multiple times a week.

I drive over the Airbus roundabout to work and go home for my lunch so pass it four times a day, quite often Iím driving over the roundabout and itís on the runway or taking off/coming into land. Itís a sight to behold when it is literally metres above your head.

It happened today in fact, it was right alongside me as I drove down the road so got to see it form the side and then from behind as it powered off.

Just checked the data from my watch app for the year. 

My daily averages are

7.5-8hrs sleep.

I'm relaxed for more than 80% of the day.

Over 8000 steps walking.

Resting heart rate of 55.

I just need to do some proper excercise and I might just get fit again.
