B & Q and garden centres are shut anyhow.
Thanks. Even though I'd made the decision, I kind of guessed they might be.
On the bright side, my local Co-Op had some boxes of that kind of stuff just outside the door, so I might have to go with that.
Situation under discussion, they might be extended. Remember they are not just valid at Wetherspoons now so when things reopen you can use them at the likes of Hogarths & the Yard. Oh joy, I wonder why I never use them.
These are valid until April 21 and I agree about Hogwarts.
I usually use my vouchers in the Waterhouse in Manchester which is a nice Spoons.
May have mentioned on here before, I reckon a product such as "weed-and-steady up a bit" may be a winner.
Use WhatPub, search for a city, town or county, large number of pubs listed, scroll down and in the list of tick boxes on the right tick the Filter by Feature "CAMRA Voucher Scheme" box. That will give you just the pubs that take vouchers in the area.
Having a bit of a tidy-up in my chalet, I found an old travel hair-drier that my father used to use to very effectively fan the fire into life and, therefore, I have just washed my hair in my non-suite shower room.
So, I'm just finishing a small bottle of Henessey brandy that was foisted on me at Christmas, for fixing a cherished watch-strap.
And I'm settling down now for an evening of McGoohan, Bolam and Flynn, with a garnish of Dudley Sutton.
Awake at 5:30 (most unusually for me), due to a bright dawn, earlier than I expected this far west, and a totally unnecessary amount of shouting from the birds.
The fire is going nicely.
We now have a countrywide "confined to barracks" order until Easter Sunday (at the earliest), with small exceptions.
Now that is what you call a kettle! We used have one like that when we were kids. Lived on the fire.
I'm not short of kettles...
Might have a day in the house today. Also tomorrow and maybe the day after.
I discovered yesterday, via a conversation with a passing exerciser over the front wall, that my oldest friend has had a fall a few days ago, but seems to have got away fairly lightly, at least nothing is broken.
When I say 'oldest friend', I mean it in two senses, she's due to turn 100 in a few weeks - and, although I have no clear memory of the actual event, it seems fairly likely that hers was the first face I saw when I emerged from my initial nine month period of isolation, due to her being on hand when I was born in the house next door.
She's a fairly hardy type - a couple of years ago, she was in need of a hip replacement, but the surgeon 'strongly advised' against it - however, she basically bullied him into it and it was a great success, although he and the anaesthetist admitted afterwards that they had both been terrified of killing her...
After breakfast, I've been up to the non-suite for my ablutions and the daily washing-up event.
A factor which came to notice over the last two evenings was getting cold feet, once physical activities had largely ceased for the day. As a result, I have had the household staff retrieve these for me from my room in the Big House. We'll see if that improves matters for this evening's viewings of the second episodes of The Prisoner and The Beiderbecke Affair...
"I'd say at one time or another, every bloke in the office has woken up at the crack of dawn."
Human interaction tonight via the medium of Skype.
Today's exercise was a walk to Bradley, to this excellent honesty stall at Wells Farm Dairy.
Finished a month of nights at 07.30am yesterday, I'm back in for 07.00am tomorrow morning.
I'm so tired I could curl up on Sainsburys carpark, using the kerb as a pillow and sleep for England.
I had a 2hr nap yesterday afternoon after I finished work, then was asleep again by 10pm. Still wide awake by 3am again though.
2 days off now then double shifts till next Sunday
Checking in on you lot, before settling down to the second episodes of The Beiderbecke Affair and The Prisoner.
And I've discovered that 80% of the start/stop rattle on the fridge is actually from my storage jars handily placed on top of it...
I stayed awake all day yesterday, well over 24 hours. Went to bed at 9pm, was awake by 1, drifted back off and woke at 4am. I seriously am too tired to cry.
