Um, the Alexander saga continues. If you’re a tenant, please communicate with your landlord. It’s all about communication. *sigh*
Anyhoo, the news of the day is that it’s Al’s birthday. Happy birthday, Al. Pity you’re not well enough to enjoy it. His ear doesn’t hurt, but he still has a dreadful cough and can’t manage a full day at work. Well, he did yesterday, but he felt decidedly ropy by the end of it and I took over for a few hours today. As always, the customers were lovely and several of them engaged me in earnest garden-related conversation.
It was cold today though – that is, compared to yesterday when it was sunny and springy. I put on a warm coat and was glad to find fingerless gloves in the pocket. At ten past four, the sun came out and all three customers in the shop spontaneously cheered. I walked home, which should be no big deal – it’s only a mile and a half – but I had a heavy shopping bag and I found myself limping by half-way home. I’m fine now though, it doesn’t last.
If you’ve written to me, I will reply. Sorry, I’m still so behind with things. The catalogues have arrived for our next sale – the pictures aren’t up to scratch, disappointingly, don’t know why they’re a bit fuzzy. We okayed the PDF proof, but they said it was low-quality and just for the layout, so the added fuzz was in the printing. It’s adequate, but not good.
Oh, I earned a hug and a kiss from my younger son this evening. We’d been talking about liquorice the other evening and today I bought him some nice tough hard liquorice sticks. He didn’t expect it and he was awfully pleased. He offered me one, but I said I’d bought an extra one and eaten it on the way home.
