I was busy this morning, so it was just as well I have an alert come up on my phone ten minutes before I’m due to leave for Meals on Wheels. One lady is in hospital so her meals have been cancelled – except that the Sage promised to tell the cafe (without the é is correct, it’s a caff and a very good one) and he forgot, so I had a meal over. So I paid for it and ate it. Very nice too, turkey with carrot, cabbage and potatoes and then rhubarb crumble and custard. The Sage was out for lunch, having a guided tour round Adnams, one of the perks of being a shareholder. He wanted me to come, but I had to say that I didn’t have time. If he’d given me more warning than two days then I could possibly have made it, but he always thinks a surprise is a good idea. He’s always wrong in that regard, I don’t really like surprises – that is, tell me there’s a surprise in the offing and I’ll be very happy. It’s a surprise I’m not prepared for that I don’t have much time for, often literally.
24th May was a Thursday in 1973, too.
