Today has gone well. I arrived in Bury St Edmunds in good time, found the car park without difficulty, having finally managed to secure a mental map of the area (which is not the part of Bury that I usually go to) and parked. Last time I had a meeting there, I got out of the car to get the ticket, then realised I’d lost my bearings and had no idea of the direction to walk to the building I was aiming at. I walked a few yards and the heavens opened. I had to accost a woman (who, unlike me, had an umbrella) and ask, and arrived at my meeting a few minutes late and soaking wet. They had started without me, so I had to begin taking notes at once, dripping messily into my notebook.
Anyway, I sensibly (have you ever noticed how sensible I am? Yeah, thought so) looked about to get my bearings before I left, and noted the distinctive colour of the building, so was able to find my way back today.
I hadn’t been home long before Wink arrived, so all is well there too. The two flies in the cheerful ointment are that my laser printer has gone on the blink (it’s still under guarantee, if I can’t resurrect it) and that the cordless phones have unaccountably stopped working. I used one at noon before I left, and we received an answerphone message since, but there is no ringing or dial tone and nothing happens when you pick up. There is one corded phone which works, so I’m not fussing for now.
Actually, it would be a long time before I missed the landline. It always rings when the Sage and I are talking about something that matters, he can’t resist rushing to answer it and it completely interrupts our train of thought. I’d give it up if not for the Sage, honestly.
Further good news is that I checked app downloads a few minutes ago and there are two new levels out in iAssociate 2. Jolly good. I shall enjoy them.
