Good morning, everyone. What a cold start to the new month (a pinch and a punch for tradition's sake!). We've had snow/sleet but it hasn't lasted and there's a wind out that that cuts like a knife. Not nice at all.
Yesterday, once I was dressed, I pootled down to Springfield Hospital to drop off that registration form before driving on to the Peugeot garage.
A few days ago I booked my car in for a service using the online form. I wanted a pick up and drop back but there wasn't anywhere on the form to request that so I fired off an email, again using their site, to request this and asking them to reply by email, not phone. So what did they do? They phoned and left a message asking me to phone back. Grrrr. So I popped round to them to sort it out and now the info about not phoning is on their records. I wonder if that will make any difference. Time will tell.
Then, when I got out, I'd been blocked in. Ho hum. It wasn't for long though and, to be fair, they are short on parking space, being a very popular and busy garage.
After that it was home, James, to have a late breakfast and to get going with the planning before tidying up and getting things ready for my visitors after tuition, not to mention the cleaners tomorrow. Killing two birds with one stone really and today it's all ready and tidy, amazingly.
Then, after tuition, my friend, Jackie, turned up and off we went to the Cramphorn to watch a filmed showing of Oscar Wilde's 'A Woman of No Importance'. I read up about it beforehand of course, as you do, and, apparently, it is not considered his best work by a long shot. We both enjoyed it very much though and time flew past. When it had finished, we were surprised at how late it was. I think that's evidence of an enjoyable experience, whatever the critics say!
Today I am not going out unless I absolutely have to. It's far too cold, damp and miserable so it's ho for the great indoors for me. I have ironing and there's some good programmes on the Good Food channel that I can watch as I catch up with the ironing so I will be happy enough.
Hoping you have a good day too, whatever the weather and whatever your commitments are. Please, stay warm.
