Good morning, everyone. Another really lovely day yesterday with plenty of morning sunshine although it clouded over after lunch and I drew the curtains early.
Everything went well yesterday. The coffee and chat with Chris was lovely and then he workmen turned up and by lunchtime the guttering was all done and up and all angled correctly. It looks pretty good too. I shouldn't get water cascading down my walls when it rains any more.
No news on the fan, they are still waiting for that to come in and it could be a while. That's not urgent though.
I did a bit of washing and drying, some general housework and so on. Just a normal, everyday sort of day.
Today starts off the the Slimming World meeting and then I need to pop to Morrisons to get a few things I either forgot or couldn't find on Wednesday.
Then it's home to wait for my lovely cleaners who are coming earlier today. Thankfully, there's no tidying to be done so no rush and panic.
I guess I will be thinking about Dad a bit more today as it would have been his birthday today. He would have been ninety three and I'd have probably gone up for the weekend with a cake and cooked him his favourite steak and chips dinner. He loved a well cooked steak (medium rare) and I worked on improving my steak skills so I could do them for him. Mum always overcooked them, he said! :-)
I will have to think of something to do on Dad's birthday, just like Mum's birthday is Christmas Cake Day. It can't be Christmas pudding - that's on Stir Up Sunday. I will ponder on that one. Any ideas?
Time to stop - have a good day, everyone, whatever you are doing and wherever you are going. As Dave Allen used to say, 'May your God go with you.'
