Getting back into blogging is playing a large part in settling down to my new life. Bit by bit things are getting done, a place is being found for everything (well almost) and the bungalow is beginning to look tidy.
Sadly I can't abide mess so all the boxes were unpacked in double quick time. I had wonderful help from W and C who were at the bungalow to receive the stuff when it arrived. By the time my helper J and I arrived they were well on with putting the crockery away in the kitchen cupboards.
Tradesmen all came when they said they would come so that everything was finished on time. The electrician is here this afternoon putting a socket in the garage for my electric doors. My dog walker has just arrived to take Tess for a walk with her dog, Meg.
Ukulele has taken a back seat - my mind was far too full of other things to concentrate, but I am starting again tomorrow when I go with a small group to play for Alzheimers sufferers and their carers. It is a lovely afternoon and we all enjoy it so a good place to start up again for me.
Sounds as though we are in for a very cold spell of weather. If so then I shall miss my dear old Aga.
Gas central heating is good but nothing beats the Aga for good toe-warming.
The world and its affairs have passed me by completely although I am now watching Breakfast television for the half hour or so it takes me to eat my porridge and banana. Zimbabwe seems to be the headline today, along with the terrible scenes of famine and displacement in Yemen. Nothing changes does it - just the site of the problem. As somebody said (and I am sure one of you will point out who it was) 'Mans inhumanity to man makes countless thousands mourn.'
Until tomorrow friends.
