It is now late evening and I have only just had time to sit down at the computer. It has really been a day and a half.
To begin with I slept badly and finally woke up at 5am. The man was coming to service the central heating boiler and the Aga and as we had switched the Aga off last evening, I knew it would be cold. So I came downstairs, had a cup of redbush tea and a round of toast and then set about cleaning the cooker.
The heating man came at ten past eight which meant an early breakfast. Shortly after his arrival the decorator came to look at the two rooms we want decorating, so I had to show him round the bedroom and the kitchen and discuss the details with him.
I had to have Tess at the hairdressers for a quarter past ten and it is ten miles away. Rushing, I put down my hearing aid and then couldn't find it at the last minute. It was only when I went back in my mind over what I had been doing that I thought to look in my handbag and luckily it was there. I hear very little without it.
It is ten miles to the dog parlour and by the time I got back home it was time to get an early lunch as it is my exercise class this afternoon.
After lunch I did an hour's exercise for the over sixties then dashed off as soon as the class finished to collect Tess again. Back home it was time to make the sandwiches for tea and then take Tess for her afternoon walk. No wonder I fell asleep over the News!
