Good morning, everyone. It'd rather lovely outsider right now. The sun is shining and I'm sitting, towel round me after my bath and not feeling the least bit cold. Great! Long may it last.
Yesterday was pretty busy, mostly with nice stuff. SET was good although it cut out during the tone part - I'll catch up with it on the Snippets page later.
Then I wasted a good hour getting in contact with Direct Line. All I wanted was to change my car insurance payments from monthly to annually after noticing how much I was paying for the privilege of monthly payments - borrowing (which is what it is, effectively) is so costly and, seeing as I can do an annual payment, why not? It was a bit frustrating and I wasn't able to complete the payment so I will try again today - it shouldn't take so long because now I have a link and a password.
Then Chris and I drove over to Longacres and had a lovely wander around the plants before heading to the café section. I had a rather tasty cheese and tomato toastie and a good black coffee and tried not to faint at the prices. I've had a wee rant over on the other blog so got it our of my system.
I didn't buy any plants because I decided I will come back next week and get some then - pansies and primulas, for example, to brighten everywhere up.
Chris came back to mine for another coffee and to continue our chatting for a while.
When Chris had gone, I decided to pop over to Matalan. Yes, I went yesterday but when I got home, I discovered that the blue one still had a security tag on. Why it hadn't raised the roof when (I walked out yesterday, I have no idea, but I had the receipts so that was OK. I walked in, brandishing the receipts and expecting am embarrassing moment as the alarm went off and everyone looked at me but no - silence. Phew, obviously a faulty thing. So that was OK and sorted.
Back at home, I gave the fridge a bit of a clear out because when I opened it earlier there was a bit of a whiff of something and that sort of pong doesn't go away. All done now. Then I sorted out my folder of manuals in the filing cabinet and managed to chuck some away. I probably need to sub-sort them but not today (or yesterday).
And that was that.
Today starts with group and then I'm going to Morrisons. I don't need to do a proper shop, that can wait till next week, but I do need a bit of fresh stuff. I'm quite pleased with the way the shopping has lasted me out and that I am slowly working through my supplies of this, that and the other. Good stuff.
The house is ready for the cleaners so I might do a bit more shed. That would be good.
I'd better go - I need to leave early for group and there's things to do. Take care and have a wonderful day. xx
