G-g-g-ood morning, everyone. I'm just back from a rootle in the freezer (out in the shed) and it ain't 'arf cold out there. A hard frost and more or less clear skies. In the summer I go out to the freezer bare footed but no way today!
At least it's not snowed, unlike yesterday, not that it caused much more than a load of very excited children! There was snow in the air all day but no more showers and some glorious sunshine which made my wander around town very pleasant indeed.
I did OK in town. I got some more pjs including (very exciting, this) some a size smaller! And they fit (just!). I also got a lightweight suitcase which was my main reason for going in. I have a smaller lightweight case but next week I will need something larger to avoid having extra bags. I got just what I wanted in Matalan. I also found the couple of Landranger maps that I needed (goodness, aren't they expensive?) and had a good rootle around both Foyles and Waterstones. I love bookshops, don't you? Disappointingly, neither shop had anything like a guide to Cambridge, so I went onto Amazon when I got home and found what I wanted there, bit the bullet and paid for a fast delivery. My fault for leaving it until late!
I was terribly lazy come the evening and decided to defer the ironing until today. As I have a free day until tuition, I shall do it while watching my daily dose of Hugh F-W this morning. An hour should be plenty long enough.
Instead, I took a nose dive back into total nostalgia. Anyone old enough to remember The Man From UNCLE? Oh, that was my to die for TV in the sixties. How I totally loved David McCallum, as did everyone else at school. I lived for Thursday evenings.
Well - I can see why, watching it again in my advanced years! It was funny, tongue in cheek, spoofy type stuff, budget-made, I suspect, but entertaining, very entertaining. And I could still have a massive crush on Illya Kuryakin!
Back to normality and time is zooming on so I will finish this now. Have a lovely day, whatever you are doing.
