Good morning, everyone. Didn't it get dark early yesterday (stating the flippin' obvious, I know)? It really shouldn't but it always comes as a bit of a shock right after changing the clocks. By four, the sun was going down and the colours were starting to fade. Winter really is on the way.
The chat with Dad didn't go 100%. First of all there were issues getting him in (my fault/inexperience) and then we just couldn't get a video of him on screen. It was showing as on, he could se himself and me, I could see me and a black rectangle of him. Obviously, we were able to chat and it was fine for Dad but . . . does anyone have any idea what the problem might be. I'm assuming his end, not mine.
I got started on the great Shift Around, moving stuff from the shed to the garage and starting to full up the shelves. At the moment it looks a right mess, worse than before, which is to be expected. This morning I will be moving everything out of the garage and then putting it all back in a more organised way. It might take all week but I will get there.
It's Beth's birthday today. She's coming round here in the afternoon and I'm cooking her a nice meal (with alcohol) and she's then staying over for the night. The plan is to live link up with Alex so he can chat while she opens her presents - I hope that comes off as he was a bit sad at not coming back. Much better not to in these odd times. Before Christmas, Beth will be able to go and collect him but none of us, including Al, was very happy for him to take the train.
I've got some table confetti, a candle shaped as a B, a badge and this morning I will go down and see if the local party shop is open and, if it is, to get some floaty balloons.
And then I'm popping to Morrisons for a few nibbly bits and some flowers for her.
In the afternoon, I'll be prepping dinner and then, after she comes, we might put up the other shelf unit before settling down.
Have a great day and be safe and well. xx
