We both slept really well last night. When I previously changed the bedclothes I was busy, so simply changed the bottom sheet and swapped duvet and pillows with the spare room bed, all being the same size and all. I swapped again this time (having made the bed up in the meantime, obviously) and, evidently, that duvet is just a little bit thicker – so we were really warm and comfortable. So this is the one to stay with for the winter.
The Sage went the Southern side of the M25 this trip – the problem can be the Dartford crossing, but he was okay today, and the south side of London turned out to be much less busy with fewer roadworks. It was 3 miles longer (238 rather than 235) but took half an hour less.
Al and Dilly invited me in to dinner, I took a started and an unstarted bottle of wine, so we made merry. I lit the fire before I went so there was a cheerful blaze to return to. I’ve lit candles too, so as not to feel lonely. When I’ve finished this, I’ll start on the DVDs – the too-loud music (not very loud actually, I care for my ears!) is on now. The Hold Steady and J Roddy Walston. Oh yes, Julie formerly from Athens leads me astray. BTW, Julie, Ro has a ticket for Hold Steady in February when they’ll be in Norwich (thanks to me, I told him they were coming) – I asked him how long he’s been listening to them and it’s been longer than I have, and you put me on to them; evidently you and he would get on well musically.
So, today – no, not a lot to report. I went supermarket shopping because I had a voucher (£7 off £60) so bought some wine as I didn’t need that much in groceries. Misty and dull, but mild. Squiffany and Pugsley are staying with Dilly’s parents and were going to see the Christmas lights in Norwich this evening, they were very excited at the treat. Squiff and Nanny were going to watch Strictly this evening. I’ve never seen it. More likely to watch I’m a Celebrity, actually. Not that I am. It’s still swearing and violence for me. I mean, you only have to look at me. It’s obvious.
