Oh, I thought I’d written a post – I just came on to alter the date to just before midnight; but I haven’t. It was typing out those recipes for Yoga Gal.
Right. Um, I didn’t do a lot today – just a meeting this morning, for which I have to write up notes …that reminds me, I’ve got some from last week too because the secretary forgot the meeting and so I did minutes. I looked after Pugsley this afternoon, cycled in for fruit and veg – I’d asked the Sage to take my car this morning and fill it with petrol as Weeza and Phil are coming for the weekend and need to use it – and then biked in again for a new intake evening at school. One father seems to be interested in becoming a governor and I gave him my email. One of the other governors came in at about 20 to 9 and said it was just started to rain, so I hastened home (yes, provident woman that I am, there was a raincoat in the pannier and -AND- I’d remembered to put new batteries in the front light.
Actually, I’m a bit gloomy at present, because I heard today of a third friend who has died. None of these were young; one was just 86, one was 70 (that’s pretty young really) and this one was 85. She and her husband (an old teacher of the Sage’s) live some 120 miles away and the Sage is pondering whether he’ll manage to go to the funeral. I can’t, I’ve got an engagement that day.
In addition to that, two friends have just found they have cancer – both of them are around 80 – worrying news.
But, to finish on a happier note, a hen pheasant has been proudly bringing her babies to show us. She has nine of them and they’ve had several fine days to give them a good start in life. The rain this evening was only a shower – but it gave me a good excuse to get home in time to watch the final of The Apprentice. As ever, Siralun chose unwisely and will deserve all he gets.
(A few minutes later) – back again to backdate this to yesterday – it’s 1 am, but you wouldn’t want two posts on a Thursday, would you?
