Good morning! It's a lovely, sunny start to the day here at Mum and Dad's. The sky is clear with just a few wispy clouds and, while it isn't that warm yet, it will heat up during the morning, I am sure.
The journey over was smooth and easy. There wasn't a lot of traffic about, considering it was mid/late afternoon and even going through Little Hadham was far from crowded. When I got here, I noticed that Gail (Dad's former cleaner - he called her his 'housekeeper' with a twinkle in his eye) is keeping the house lovely and clean and fresh and Colin is doing the same for the garden, although I haven't looked too closely yet.
I've got myself a little list of things I want to achieve today, mainly based around the kitchen. The pantry needs a good turn out, as does the wash room and I want to start taking Dad's records (musical ones) into the car port on the shelving there, ready for whatever fate has in store for them.
There's some very, very old 'dry goods' in the pantry which I am pretty sure will need to be chucked and I can stack anything useable on the lower shelves for convenience. There is a step ladder in the pantry but why keep things up high if there's space lower down? No point.
At some point, I'm going to take a wander down the garden to take a look at the veg area. I remember Dad got Colin to plant some runner beans and there might possibly be some to pick. If so, I will.
I'm pretty sure I will be home later on today. It's a big lonely house now - it's people that make a house into a home, isn't it? - so it's all rather lonely and sad.
Well, I had better get started. There's plenty to do so no excuses. Take care, stay safe and have a happy day. xx
