Saturday

 Good morning!  Another cold start to the day but not quite as chilly as yesterday.  There's no frost and I doubt that any will develop now as dawn is breaking.

Yesterday went according to plan.  To my delight, the washing did dry outside, helped by a bit of a breeze, which made it all much easier to iron.  I got all of that done so I can feel smug as I walk past the ironing basket each time.

Both my scheduled chats came off.  The one with Jackie ended with us arranging to have another one same time next week and the one with Dad was fine and I think I'm converting him.  Both sound and visuals were appreciably better on the desktop so the webcam has already earned its cost as far as I am concerned.  He's also suggest a regular time each week, much to my delight, and is finding out how to do the inviting himself.  Three cheers.

Out in the garage, it didn't take long to get stuff sorted out so that we can put in the last two units.  All three walls will have shelving units along them by the end of the afternoon and it looks a bit like a warehouse but that's the idea.  It has been a long, long time since I put the car away so it was, really, wasted space but no longer.

The whole project won't quite be finished.  I have some high cupboards that I can now sort out, both in the kitchen and in my bedroom, so I will start them today and, I hope, finish them tomorrow.

The cleaners did, indeed, turn up and I disappeared into the garage as planned.

Today also feels a bit busy although it isn't really.

First of all, I need to go into town to pick up a prescription from Boots and I can take the opportunity to see what is still open and what isn't.  For instance, I wonder if the M&S food hall will be open.  There should certainly be no problems with parking whereas, by this time of the year, usually the Christmas shoppers are out in force and one may need to queue to park.

Once home again, I will start the high cupboard sorting and then Beth's round for lunch before we do the last two units.  After that I will probably crash in front of the telly with my knitting and wait for Strictly to start.

Should be a good day - stay safe, well and positive, everyone.  xx

  1. Is this the 3rd or 4th sunny day in a row? whichever - I'm just so glad to see it.
    Have a good day - and Hooray for Strictly! No idea who will be out this weekend. It was easy to guess last weekend. Strictly Spoiler website is up and running if you want to cheat and find out before the "Sunday" programme!

    1. I think it's the fourth - long may it continue!
      I wonder if it might be Jamie this week. It won't be long until we know anyway. I wonder how they are getting their spoilers with no audience.

  2. I'm so glad to hear that the webcam/PC combo is an improvement and that your Dad is warming to the idea. A weekly time to talk gives you both something to look forward to and it will give you some peace of mind to be able to 'see' him regularly.
