This is the third time I have tried to post this and each time, as I got the the end the whole thing disappeared into thin air, never to be seen again. It has been most frustrating and does make me realise that old age/lack of real computer knowledge is a great handicap to blogging. As it is indeed to everything else.
Yesterday, what started out as a perfectly ordinary day with not a lot on the agenda, ended up as a frantically hectic day which ended with my feeling like a wrung-out rag. This was mostly due to old age. Everything takes twice or three times as long to do - nothing is really easy any more. End of moan.
I would like to repeat yesterday's post so that you can read just what a hectic day I had but really the effort of remembering it in detail is just not worth the bother.
Today has been less so, largely because it is our Coffee day and following on this friend W and I, as usual, went out for lunch. We had a prawn and crayfish salad with trimmings and a bowl of chips each. It was delicious.
My Insurance Broker came and we spent the afternoon (after the whole thing was sorted out) chatting. He has just come back after a trip with his wife to Macchu Pichu and then a week going up a tributary of the Amazon. One of the holidays I would have loved to have done when younger but just listening to the itinerary now was enough to make me want a lie down.
The weather here is bitterly cold today with a sharp wind blowing. Even Tess seems reluctant to go out although if J, who often walks her in the early evening, rings the door bell I am sure she will change her mind.
Back to old age. At our ukulele meeting for the Alzheimers and their carers the other day, one friend forgot her ukulele, another forgot his music and a third (who actually called for me) forgot to close his boot, so that the car kept pinging for the first half mile! In today's Times I read of a man who lost his car twenty years ago (a VW Passat) when he just couldn't remember where he had left it. It has just been found by builders about to
clear a site for building!! Traced back to the man the car is now quite undriveable of course but he acknowledges that it is still in the place he parked it all those years ago.
