Good morning, everyone! It's another cold start to the day but fair enough, it's January after all. To be expected!
Yesterday was all higgledy piggled!
Thursday evening, I had received an email from Seth's company saying they'd be round on Friday to fir the fan. I sent a message straight back saying 'after ten thirty please' as I'd be out.
I walked round to the SW meeting - very busy, loads of people stayed, six new members - and at the end checked my phone to see that they were waiting outside my house. Drat! So I excused myself to Jen (I usually help to clear up afterwards), dashed home and there they were. It was OK, they had seen my message but a bit later than they needed to see it and decided to wait. So now I have a working kitchen fan again. Not a pretty thing, it's just a box on the wall, but that's fine. When I redo my kitchen, I can have another think about what I want but that won't be this year and probably not next year either.
I popped round to Lathcoat's (our local farm shop/pick your own) because they have 10% off frozen meat on Fridays and I needed some other bits and bobs too. I came back with a nice looking chicken (now in the freezer) for when I have people round and other stuff including nice nibbly bits for John (brother) and Gina. They didn't come down for Christmas so I didn't get their pressent(s) in December but as I'm seeing John today, I needed something.
When I got home, my cleaner was there and, as it was the one, she was here for two hours.
So it was a bit of a muddled day really but plenty got done!
Today is a bit different in that in a short time I am out and up to Dad's. John's already there and we're having another day of clearing out. I'm hoping I will come home with a list of things to do so I can spend days there and do my bit.
He met with the estate agent yesterday, the house will go on the market shortly and John has a list of things we need to do/get - neither of us has ever sold a house before and, as we're not actually on site, we will be very reliant on the good services of the agent and Ann and Gail (neighbour and cleaner), both of whom have been generous with time and support.
There's things to sign and things to decide as joint executors so it should be a useful day.
To that's today. I have my meals packed to take with me (can't count on a full fridge, freezer and larder any more), John and Gina's Christmas presents, a lump of Christmas cake and my notebook and pen.
So I'd better get dressed. It's getting light now and I want to leave in around fifteen minutes.
Have a good day, everyone. Take care. xx
