Good morning. It seems to be comparatively mild at the moment but I gather it's due to get quite chilly again towards the end of the week, Yesterday was a gloriously sunny day, very cheering, with wonderful Autumnal colours everywhere.
Mum and Dad left yesterday morning after breakfast and had a good journey home. I was rather lazy and might have slept once or twice through the day. I caught up on QI and Strictly (I will never forget Ed and Katya's salsa) and I finished off the day watching 'The Day After Tomorrow' before a quick bedroom sort out (it was very tidy anyway) so that the room is now clear for the plasterer who is due to arrive at around nine this morning.
After a comment from Dad over the weekend about me using a dining chair at the computer for so long, I went online to Staples and ordered a computer chair. He's right, I do spend quite a lot of time working at the PC one way and another and I ought to have a proper chair with back support, etc. The chair I use is just a dining chair and doesn't support all that well. A good use of all the money I am saving by using up food in the freezer!
Then I thought 'in for a penny, in for a pound' and, as my DVD played died several months ago and Christmas is coming up when we will want to watch Christmas movies, I bought a little DVD player that you can connect to the TV via a scart lead which I already have. It doesn't record, it just plays, but I haven't missed the recording facility at all. It should be here on Wednesday.
At some point I ought to sort out all the old videos I still have. I don't want to get rid of them. For example, I have a full set of the Forsyte Saga - the original, better version - and now I don't have any way of watching them. I wonder if I could buy a simple VHS player that just connects up to the telly and plays. I must hunt.
Today I have to be in all day so it is fortunate that there is absolutely nothing in the diary apart from the plastering. Last week I cleared out some drawers in the living room and yesterday I sorted out some more drawers in the kitchen and slowly I am finding space for things that have had to sit on the work surface and look messy. I'll carry on with that today, seeing as I have to be in. There's also a fair bit of washing and some ironing too.
I've made a little list so there's a better chance of getting it all done.
B: bacon sarnie
L: tomato soup
D: the Chinese from Saturday that I didn't have yesterday.
Have a super day and take care of yourself.
