Good morning. After a very damp start, things cheered up again yesterday and it was both sunny and mild by the afternoon. Very autumnal and colourful.
Just before 9:30 I set off for the bus stop where lots of people were already waiting. 'Oh, good,' thought I, ' there must be one on the way. Dear me, no, there hadn't been one for at least half an hour and I waited another forty minutes before deciding to go back and take the car or I'd not make it in time.
Thankfully, I was in time - just. Now I have two shiny new pairs of glasses plus the older pairs that would do at a pinch as my sight hadn't changed all that much.
After tuition, Beth turned up for supper and we booked two nights of cheap accommodation (Travelodge) fairly close to the Uni Alex goes to. So we're off on a Norwich jolly the weekend after this coming one. I'm turning into a right gadabout!
One place we really want to visit is Strangers Hall, a Tudor merchant's house used as a museum of local history. It looks absolutely fascinating but is only open on Wednesdays and . . . Sundays! Perfect. There are lots of other fascinating places too, packed with interest, so I can see myself coming back a good few times.
And it will be lovely to spend some time with Beth.
Today is another jolly. AFter popping back into town (by car) for a hearing aid check, I'm off to a friends. Together we are off to Blake House Craft Centre to browse round 'And Sew On' and I want to find a pattern and some yarn in the lovely wool shop to make something for myself.
Then we're off to the Blue Egg, another centre, for lunch and, most likely, more spending. I've never been there before so am really looking forward to it.
Then it will be home for tuition! So a busy day but quite a pleasant one.
