At last there is a reasonably nice day and the weather is set to improve further over the next few days for an Indian Summer. My bones really need it - crave it in fact. I would really love to go for a walk with Percy this afternoon, but I have been so busy over this morning that I don't think I have the energy left. It was our usual Zoom at ten this morning but I just couldn't stay on - my laptop kept telling me that my internet connection was weak and twice I faded out completely and had to reconnect so in the end I gave up. S in the Zoom group suggested I take my laptop nearer to my modem - I shall try it that way next time because it is good to meet up with a group of friends.
After that I did two loads of washing. One load went in the tumble drier and the second lot I put out (with difficulty) on the washing line. I have to put the things I wish to hang out into my clothes basket, open the patio doors, return with my clothes basket on my wheeled tea trolley. Then, standing in the dining room doorway I have to use the stick handle to hook the line near enough to peg things out one by one. I am too unsteady on my legs to do it any other way but when it is such a lovely day and there are items which will not go in the tumble drier it is worth the effort. Another hour and two jumpers, one pair of trousers and a winter fleece (yes it is that time of year coming round again) will be dry. Better than them hanging about in the kitchen for a couple of days.
Now, having cooked and eaten lunch I just feel like making a coffee (real, not out of a jar) and sitting down with The Times. What have I got to lo ok forward to today. Well, it is Last Night of the Proms (yes I know it wont be the same but I think I shall watch anyway) and there is Michael Palin on BBC Four going Pole to Pole. I have seen it before but so far I have been to most of the places he has visited and it is good to see them again - and he is such a nice man anyway. And if all else fails I can always watch another Inspector Montalbano - I have seen them all twice and am on the third viewing - this time round I can actually remember bits of each story although I can rarely remember whodun it.
Have a good week-end everyone. And if the weather is good where you are then make the most of it - half way through September this week - Winter draws on.
