This morning I was on Auntie duty taking Elsie to her football class. I drove Alice’s car for the first time – it was an easy car to drive and the centre wasn’t too far away. Elsie was very good. This afternoon I was planning to build the IKEA chest of drawers that Alice and I picked up a couple of weeks ago. I had dutifully counted out all the pieces and checked everything was there and in good order, then Jon arrived home feeling very unwell with a temperature! As I was in their bedroom I carefully moved the piles of bits and made a hasty retreat so that a) I wouldn’t get it and b) he could sleep in peace.
As I was at a loose end I tidied my room up, found out how to claim for medical expenses, researched some family tree names for Dad and looked again at a two week coach tour up to Cairns. It is a very expensive tour especially with a single person supplement so I am in two minds whether to book it or not. I am going to ring them on Monday and have a chat.
Alice and I then went for a stroll around town for bits and pieces before picking Elsie up from nursery. Near the ATM I spotted this community board.
It gives you some idea of what this place is like. People who know me well will know that most of this is not my cup of tea!
This evening was another film “Revenge of the Bridesmaids” and more knitting. I managed to finish the square I started yesterday day and started the next square but then made a mistake and had to undo about 10 rows!
I have also decided that watching a film probably doesn’t help me do my knitting as I end up watching the film and not knitting. So I thought I would try an audiobook! iBooks doesn’t seem to have much of a selection and Steven Fry features prominently, anyway, I settled on a book called “A Man of Some Repute” by Elizabeth Edmondson. It seems this works and I managed to knit away quite happily. Then I was interrupted by whatsapp! A lovely and enjoyable interruption from home I must say. Also, I have learnt that I can’t keep knitting, follow a story line and whatsapp at the same time! The pause button is really handy!
Thought for the day: Why isn’t 11 pronounced onety one? A hark back to teaching Maths!
