You wouldn't think I could have hectic days when I walk so slowly with either a frame or Priscilla but I can assure you it is all too easy when I get to my desk, sit down and get out my writing pad,to find there is no pen anywhere near so I have to get up and go into the kitchen pot to fetch oneAnd this is followed by many similar incidents.
My hair appointment was a day early so, of course, I have now been thinking all day that tomorrow will be Friday when it is really only Thursday. (If I ever said 'tomorrow will be Friday' when I lived with my Mum and Dad he would always retort 'and we've caught no fish today' - something to do with fishing boats not setting sail on a Friday I believe (I shall look it up when I have finished this post.)
I returned to a pile of post, all of which needed dealing with - either a written answer to be posted or a phone call. As so often I was pleased that I lived directly opposite a post box.
Afternoon involved chatting to a builder who is coming to repair and renew an outside sink - unfortunately it is the one where my gardener put in a new pipe for me last week and to work on the sink the builder has to remove the pipe. So that was another phone call to apologise to the gardener before he returned to work in the garden only to find his pipe work messed about with.
Now early evening and all loose ends sorted out. Nothing feels better than when everything on your list for the day is crossed off. All that is left to do now is to washing up my tea things (I no longer use my dishwasher unless visitors come - I feel it is too extravagant). Then I shall sit down with a cup of tea and have another stab at the Times crossword and wait for the 9pm programme where all the Royal Family reminisce about their memories of Prince Phillip - it promises to be a really interesting hour.
I have just watched the programme and am on my way to bed (my computer room and my bedroom are one and the same). It was an interesting programme but somehow I found it a bit disappointing - not sure why. Did any of you watch it?
