Doesn't it come around quickly? And - on paper at any rate - I have a busy week this week. I made a list yesterday of all the things I have to do and today's tasks have passed off well. First of all my Book Group discussing Neil Gaiman's American Gods. Once we got discussing it I realised just what an interesting book it was - and we really had such an interesting two hours. There were only three of us this morning for various reasons, but we never ran out of things to say. I wouldn't recommend it because it sure wouldn't appeal to everyone but, having said that, I am pleased I have read it and then discussed it because I have a better idea of what the genre is all about.
I have bought myself a new microwave oven. My old one was going rusty inside and my carer is certainly pleased I have replaced. It is in use every day. I told her to leave it on the work top (the delivery driver put it on there for me). After she had gone I went into the kitchen to prepare the trolley for the Book Group. My carer had put the old microwave out into the garage ready for disposal. taken the new one from its box and set it up. I sent her a text saying "you devil" - she was very amused and chuff that she had got one over on me as she put it!
So the lunch she brought me was heated in it. Then friends T and S called for a coffee and a pleasant hour (always a pleasant break), after which Priscilla and I went round the block between showers. Now it is time almost for 'Antiques Road Trip' - a favourite programme on television. So I will sign off for now - any more news and I will be back. Tomorrow The Gas Man Cometh to serve the Gas Boiler for Winter - a necessary evil I am sure you will agree.
