Morning, everyone. Well, yesterday's weather started off beautifully - bright and sunny - but bu the time I had finished tuition, the clouds had rolled in and there was dampness in the air. By midday the heavens had opened and we had a number of good downpours through the afternoon which, I am sure, rejoiced my garden's heart. Today, BBC thinks it will be a dull but dry day with none of the expected rain further north.
Yesterday was pleasant, despite the weather. I had a good time at tuition before coming home to get all the copying of important documents done. I bless my printer; it is so useful to have a copy/scan function and I use both regularly. As CrystalWitch suggested, I made copies to keep here too and Beth knows where they are - that was so helpful, thanks. I also took copies of my driving licence as I am named as a second driver for France. Not that I will, I have no idea of driving in France and would be most unsafe but, in the direst emergency, I would be legal!
Just before midday, Alex turned up. He came over by bike and was so, so lucky. He dropped his bike in my shed and then came round to the front door as he has a key. Just as he arrived under the porch, the heavens opened. Even twenty seconds later and he would have been soaked through!
We went off to the Flyer by car and he insisted that it was his treat which was lovely. We had a really nice time and did lots of talking. He's now just about to start his third year (out of four) at Uni and was telling me about the six modules he has chasen for this coming year. Incomprehensible things such as Mathematical Topography, Mathematical Cryptography and Mathematical Biology. I Googled a few of them afterwards and was none the wiser but he's really looking forward to starting them!
It takes all sorts . . .
As it was still raining later, I dropped Alex off home and he will pop over today or tomorrow to pick up his bike.
This morning is just one thing after another. At seven thirty, Jeff is here to make my garden nice and shiny. Straight after that I am off to tuition (the last this week). Once that's finished, I am popping over the cul de sac to have coffee and a chat with Chris and I shall take her one of the three cucumbers I picked yesterday. then, over lunch time, it's the lovely Sharon here to work her usual magic with my hair before my holiday.
After that, things calm down a bit, thankfully. I want to get a load of washing done and to start laying stuff for packing out in the spare room. I really don't want loads of washing after the weekend at Dad's - there will be a bit - but, until then, if I can wear things I don't want to take to France, it would be good.
Thinking ahead, tomorrow, Beth and I are off into town to get me a smart phone. Now, I have never had a smart phone and am a bit ignorant so I'm asking for help - if you have any hints, tips and advice about what to ask for/get, I'd be super-grateful. Thanks.
So that's today - a frantic morning and a much more relaxed afternoon. Nice.
Have a good one too, whatever your plans and commitments. xx
