Good morning, everyone.
Yesterday was very busy but a lovely day.
The journey home was good. A bit slow at times but rarely at a stop and there were no hassles. As soon as I got home I set to making the dinner so that by the time Alex arrived it was all on and doing. I had a lovely time chatting to him - he seems very happy at uni, is getting good grades and thoroughly enjoying his studies. Dinner was nice but the roastie was a mistake. The evening was uncomfortable and there's still some twinges now as I type. A lesson learned, I think: mustn't get too complacent.
After seeing Alex off, I whizzed off for tuition and then relaxed for the evening (starting to feel sore, unfortunately) and, after weeks with very little I want to watch, found that there was actually a clash of programmes so thank goodness for iPlayer.
Did you watch the programme about the Queen and Prince Philip? I enjoyed it in a very light sort of way but it was ridiculously superficial and 'reverential' and told us nothing. I guess we are used to documentaries that are a little more informative and analytical nowadays and this was neither.
I got the annual letter yesterday, informing me of the winter fuel payment which I had forgotten about. Very nice too and I look forward to it arriving in the next few weeks. Another advantage of getting old(er).
Today is hair day - well, hair evening anyway. Now that Beth has a job, we've had to change the time to evenings so the lovely Sharon will be arriving here at six, ready to work her usual magic. Can't wait - I always feel better afterwards.
I'd better get going; it is past six o'clock and things won't do themselves. Have a good day. I gather it is going to get more chilly again through this week so stay warm and cosy.
