It was book club this morning - my choice of book - Midwinter Break by Bernard McLaverty. It produced a lively discussion on the troubles in Northern Ireland (the main theme of the book, that and the gradual disintegration of a marriage). Then in was home to a nice clean house as my cleaning lady had been while I was out (always a nice feeling to come in to everywhere clean and tidy).
This afternoon I did an hour's tidying in the back garden, mainly sweeping up the patio - every little helps. I have also unpacked all my herbaceous plants waiting to go into the ground so that they get a bit of sunlight and an airing. In the morning I shall buy myself a new plastic watering can so that I can water them easily.
I have just taken Tess round the block and am now back in awaiting the arrival of the TV engineer. My new Smart television keeps going 'off station' and telling me there is 'no signal'. It is very frustrating - it did it four times last week. My son has had a good look at it and says there is absolutely nothing wrong with the television but there may be some trouble with the aerial. Friends down the road are having the same problem. I justhope it goes away, although I can still watch iplayer so all is not lost.
Is anyone else watching 'The Road to Santiago'?
I am so enjoying it. The farmer and I once went to one of the places en route where there was a shrine, but I can't remember where it was.
Small eyes are boring into me - it is dog's tea time. Also my tea time - tomatoes on toast for me tonight - I am hungry after my hour's gardening!
