I’m not sure what went awry today. I woke up and lay feeling tired for a while, then the Sage brought me a cup of tea and said he was going out, I fell asleep again and resurfaced to find it was ten to ten, and I was supposed to be in the church at ten o’clock helping to make posies. Surprising how quickly you can be dressed and ready when you need to be. I considered going out without make-up until I looked in the mirror. Frankly, dreadful.
I called to say hello to Gill and Andy afterwards. They have moved house, to just round the corner. This will be much better for him as it’s a bungalow and there is no step so he can get out easily. He’s walking a lot better, but needs a wheelchair to go any distance. It’s half the size of their last house, they’ve some adjusting to do, but they won’t be short of friends dropping in!
After lunch, I was exhausted again and slept for ages. I don’t know how long, between one and two hours. I have no idea why, I’ve had a cold all week but there’s been nothing out of the ordinary. After that, I made cakes – butterfly buns – and we took them through to say Happy Birthday to Al. Thirty-five, blimey.
The Sage misses his laptop dreadfully. He only uses it for the Internet. Without it, he is having to talk to me. But, after all these years, what more is there to say? He was pleased about the cakes though.
