One or two spells of rain and one or two spells of sunshine so really just a typical Autumn day. My clean through the house is being done on Wednesday so I like to do some of it myself. This morning with the help of my trolley I have wiped all window sills throughout, wiped down the marble fire surround and wiped all the ornaments along the shelf and then polished the Welsh Dresser in the hall and the furniture in the dining room and sitting room. Oh yes, and wiped all the pictures. It might not sound much but believe me I found it tiring. After lunch I have wiped the kitchen units, cleaned out the toaster, washed the fruit bowls just before my order for grapes, bananas and clementines arrived. Now I have just had a Zoom with friends W, P and D and after finishing this I shall sit down with my tea - not sure what that will be until I open the fridge door. I should sleep well tonight.
Tomorrow is a fairly free day - my day with no carer means it takes me longer to get dressed and have my breakfast. My friend M is coming for coffee at half past ten so we should have a nice chat - first about last month's Book Group book (she had to miss the meeting) and then a little about this month's book (her choice) which is Bruce Chatwin's 'In Patagonia' =not too much chat of course because it is not a Book Group . But I have no doubt we shall find plenty to chat about - we are kindred spirits as far as reading is concerned.
Five o'clock and tea time. I have decided on a slab of Brussel's Pate with some Ryvitas, some Coleslaw and some cherry tomatoes. Maybe a toasted tea cake for 'pud' - see how hungry I am. Until tomorrow dear friends.
