Having slept through most of yesterday I am determined to stay awake and enjoy today!
If the forecast is correct it will rain until lunchtime but we're promised a dry period this afternoon so, no excuses, I will be going out for a walk. I need a good dose of fresh air so, as I'm still without my car, I'll walk along the canal ... and maybe buy some chocolate on the way back home!
My car will be sorted out next week. T, my mechanic friend, is on holiday this week but will fit mine in when he starts back next week. I don't know if he is doing it here or taking it away - he'll let me know on Monday. I haven't needed it at all but I will still be relieved to know that I have a working car on the drive.
There's a rattle in the attic when it's windy which is loud enough to keep me awake at night, so that's the next thing that needs attention. It's a fairly recent thing and I'm hoping it's as simple as air coming in through the air brick and making something up there flap in the air flow. It's not a continuous noise and only happens on windy days so I just need to puzzle out what's causing it. Only part of the attic is boarded so if I can't see what's making the noise in that area I will need to ask my nephew for help ... I just know that I'll end up coming through the ceiling if I try to walk across the rafters so best leave it to someone competent!
Apart from the walk and my daily Italian language practice, I don't have anything else I particularly need to do so it'll be a day of reading and an evening of TV, or Netflix if there's nothing worth watching on the Freeview channels.
