Morning, everyone. It's damp out there but very mild. Maybe today I will feel warm!
I meant to post this photo yesterday but forgot. It's my advent candle, sitting in the dish I made at pottery last year (I still miss pottery) and I was looking at it and remembering . . .
I had fun ordering some flowers yesterday. Dad's neighbour has been an absolutely fantastic friend and neighbour to him this year and John, Dave and I wanted to say thank you so I went online to eflorist and had a very pleasant fifteen minutes or so choosing something lovely and festive which I really hope she will like - a basket arrangement so all she has to for is find a corner for it and keep it watered. I do hope she likes it.
Beth sent me a message asking me if Al could come and stay for a few nights. The decorator, who she expected after Christmas, can come next Monday, which is great, but Alex is studying hard and tends to be distracted by that sort of thing so he's coming here for two nights, maybe three. I'm looking forward to that.
Disappointingly, Messenger was playing up yesterday so Chris and I didn't get our chat. Maybe today . . .
Today the diary is blank. I was gong to have a chat with Jackie but she has gone away for a long weekend so I will potter again. I have clutter to clear before the cleaners arrive and a pile of ironing to dive in to. Also, a spare bed to make up! It's made up with Beth's sheets which we decided to leave on because the chances of anyone else staying round before she did were very slight. We should have known!
