The dead trees have been removed – no explanation as to why they died, the roots look quite healthy, yet all three died this spring, the cherry having flowered first. The grass around them remained healthy. Anyway, they were an eyesore, now all cut up for firewood and the twiggy bits burnt.
I lit the bonfire with a single match, always a source of satisfaction. I built a new bonfire in fact, just in case a hedgehog might be hibernating in the existing one.
More clearing in general done, which is another little drain of tension.
Constructive discussion about sale and removal of some Stuff. Nothing valuable, but it’s likely I’ll be paid a bit rather than having to pay to have it taken away – it’ll offset some of the cost of the manpower and skips.
Cheques arrived! – this is regular quarterly income, but very welcome.
The front porch and the cupboard are stacked with logs, I won’t have to fetch more for weeks. Next, I’ll get all the coal scuttles filled. I’m using about half a scuttleful of coal a day as well as wood.
I’ve requested a new PIN. I’ll write down all the rest for a day so that, when I memorise the replacement, I don’t forget one of the others.
One of my favourite phone games has had a satisfyingly difficult new set of free levels added.
I played the piano this evening.
Lovely long chat with Eloise on the phone this evening.
I watched another film.
Nothing went wrong. Nothing at all.
