The normal entry!
Good morning, everyone. The last day of October today and it's been a weird old month one way and another! Hallowe'en strikes and I'd better get on with my annual poster. I don't 'do' Hallowe'en but there are lots of children I know locally from school so I always make and put up a poster on the front door saying, in effect, no T or T but enjoy yourselves and stay safe. It always works and in all the time I've been here I have had just one egg on the door - and that wasn't kids from the school!
You can really tell the difference with the clock change. This morning I went to the freezer in half light rather than darkness and yesterday I walked home from tuition in the almost dark. In a couple of sessions it really will be dark and I will be wrapped up in coat and scarf, I expect!
Yesterday's birthday lunch didn't come off because of illness, which is a shame but couldn't be helped. I got on with my knitting instead!
Today I am doing some shopping for a friend, carrying on with the washing (there was more than I thought) and - guess what - knitting! The nice thing about knitting - one of the nice things, anyway - is that I can watch telly or iPlayer as I do so. Somehow it grows much faster when my mind is on the screen and, fortunately, it's not a tricky pattern so my mind can be half elsewhere. And then this evening I have a couple of tuition sessions, all being well.
So now it's time for my second coffee before I start the day.
