What a lovely day I have had today. My son's wife was having a stairlift fitted and to get out of the way while they were working (the staircase comes down into the sitting room) they were coming to lunch. It is the first time they have been inside my house, or anyone else's in fact, since the beginning of Lockdown. In the event the stairlift men had made a mistake and it is next Tuesday they are coming so I get two visits for the price of one.
What a lovely day I have had and how lucky I am. My lovely carer turned up with a quiche (my son is vegetarian and that way we could all eat the same thing), a bowl of home made potato salad and a plate of cakes. So there was not much for me to do - a salad to make, jacket potatoes to put in the oven. I had made tomato soup in my soup-maker yesterday and we were having ice cream (it is a gloriously hot day) for pud.
We sat in the garden the whole afternoon chatting and listening to the rooks in the trees. The farmer has cut the field over the wall today for silage (brings back memories) and the smell of grass was beautiful and added to the feeling of Summer.
We had tea at six and then watched an episode of Star Trek - they are avid nightly watchers. After they had gone I tidied round and emptied the dish washer. My son protested loud and long that he should do it but I knew if I let him put everything away I would then spend an hour putting it all in the right place after they had gone.
It is now one minute past ten and I am falling asleep at the wheel as it were. See you tomorrow.
