My heart sinks at the very word but I knew I had to do some 'office' stuff this morning. First I had to arrange to go down to Hear and Now, the hearing clinic where I bought my new hearing aids (they are brilliant incidentally) It all has to be tied in with the taxi service who take me down to Ripon and first of all they said they couldn't do it but then rang back to rearrange it - so now I am able to go.. So that is one tick on my list. Then I had to rearrange a visit to my doctor - I need to see her to discuss my legs and whether or not I shall soon need a wheelchair. That was soon ticked off. Then I decided I would up my Times subscription to include Sundays - always a dull day for me so why not fill it with a Times, like I do all other days - that's another tick. Then two bills came this morning -cheques made out and put into envelopes and ready to post- so I can forget about them. All this took me all morning when it would once have taken me an hour at the most to do the lot. Best not to think about it - too depressing.
After very strong winds all week end there is still wind this morning but it is on the wane and it has been another very sunny day so not a lot of central heating needed - cooling down now though at four in the afternoon. I am one of those who still enjoy Antiques Road Trip - not so much for the Antiques as the road trip bit. So after this it is get a sandwich ready so that by four-thirty I can sit down with a sandwich and a pot of tea, all blinds drawn, heating on, all hatches battened down because we are in the inbetween time when by the time the sixo'clock News comes on all is settled for the night. Then all that remains is to decide whether or not to listen to Boris's excuses (probably not). See you tomorrow. Sleep well.
