T, the decorator, nipped round this afternoon (he only lives in the next road) just to sand down the holes where the down lights had been in the bathroom. He had called and filled them in yesterday. Now in the morning he will come round and give the whole bathroom ceiling a coat of emulsion and it will all be done. I shall wash both bath mats to spruce the whole place up and then everything will be shipshape again.
Now all that remains is my car to be serviced on Monday - then all jobs at present are finished. This is just as well as my grandson, D, who lives and works in China, is home for Chinese New Year and will be spending four days up here next week with his father (and me too of course). It is more than two years since I saw him and I can't wait - I am so looking forward to it. At my age going two years without seeing a grandchild is far too long but I know how happy he is working out there and that makes it all worthwhile.
We have had some very heavy rain here over the past few days - mostly overnight I am glad to say, but my decorator, who drove through the Dales and over into Lancashire today, tells me that in many places the roads were almost flooded with standing water. Not for nothing is February known as 'February Fill Dyke'. But hopefully next week has a forecast of dry, mostly sunny weather so hopefully everywhere will dry up apace.
I shall now go and look if there is anything on television to watch. Saturday evenings are always non starters as far as I am concerned, so thank heaven for iplayer I say. See you tomorrow.
