Good morning. It is a grey start to the day today, all misty and autumnal and probably none too warm either, although it should warm up. I hope they are wrong about the 'light cloud' for the wedding. Sunshine would be a whole load better.
I was well chuffed with a pound and a half off at SW yesterday. It is always fun doing the weighing (I'm on the social team) and sharing a few laughs with the others.
Then I came home and waited until Seth turned up to look at the work that needs doing. He couldn't come earlier so his secretary/office manager person emailed me to apologise and change the time. They say if you want a job doing, ask a busy person, don't they.
Anyway, he is going to get the guttering done plus one other small and unrelated jobs and will give me a provisional price for the other job which won't be until next year anyway so no rush.
Then my lovely cleaner turned up followed a short while later by Beth, carrying the wedding dress very gingerly and nervously. Yes, I did have a peek and it is stunning but, on reflection, I didn't think it was quite fair to take any photos without K knowing. I will take some at the wedding so you can see.
Beth stayed on until after K and J picked up the dress at about seven-fifteen so I made dinner for us both. She is off work for a week now so she was very relaxed.
Today is a bit busy. I have a few bots and bobs to get from Morrisons first thing but I am not bothering to go looking for petrol. Hopefully, it will be all sorted in a few days and I have about half a tankful which will see me through two journeys to the wedding venue and back again. I did have plans to go to Dad's with Beth and do a bit more clearing but not if there are still supply issues. At least petrol isn't something you can stock pile in your shed, unlike those loo rolls and bags of pasta last year!!
Then I pick up Beth and Alex, take Beth to Pontland's (which looks lovely) and leave her there, come back with Alex, make us both dinner, get ready, go back to Pontland's and enjoy the wedding and buffet. I'm bringing Alex home after a decent time (being autustic, he finds things like this hard to cope with) and Beth will get a taxi later.
I should sleep well tonight!!
