|253/365: more raindrops on a different fuchsia!|
I spent most of yesterday watching the TV coverage of events following the death of our Queen, so another emotional day. I haven't quite got my head around the fact that we are witnessing history in real time with the declaration of a period of National Mourning and the commencement of the protocols surrounding the accession to the throne of our new King.
All of which means I didn't get much done. I was able to message the U3A so am waiting to hear back from them, and I was lucky enough to place a supermarket order and get a delivery slot for later today. I've ordered most of the things I need to restock the cupboards and freezer which will give me plenty more options for meals for the next few months. I've still have some more batch cooking to do and have a few things to pick up from Aldi or Lidl, but will leave that until next week now.
I've made a note in my diary that there are four local building open as part of the Heritage Open Days festival but I'm not sure whether I will go to see any of them or not. There's only one, Parade House, that I've never seen before and that's because it's only recently been reopened for public access so I'm sure I will be able to see it at some time in the future if I choose not to go today. I can't summon up the enthusiasm for it just now as the happenings in London are claiming my attention.
