I'm feeling better than I did yesterday, just very tired after another disturbed night.
Today's nutrition class should be interesting. We'll be looking at ways to keep food bills lower while still eating healthily, and also discussing the costs of ways to cook without using the oven, e.g. air fryer, microwave, slow cooker. It will hopefully be one of the more interactive sessions where participants can share their own ideas ... they are always good and I'm always open to new ideas. I still haven't restarted my piano lessons so the nutrition class is my only commitment for the day.
I've started reading 'The Appeal' by Janice Hallett, which is different from my usual choices as the storyline develops through emails, texts, police transcripts and WhatsApp messages. I haven't read enough yet to say whether I like it, but so far so good.
S tried to sort out my gas meter last night but of course it didn't go smoothly. Does it ever? He followed the instructions provided by my supplier but couldn't get the final confirmation message on the screen so I don't know whether the gas meter is communicating with the hub or not ... the in-home monitor says not. I'll email my supplier later this morning for confirmation that it is now working and ask how to reset my in-home monitor if they say it is. I don't know why it just can't be straightforward for once!
S also gave me his plan/design for the pergola. I'm happy with the design he's come up with so the next stage is to cost it out and agree when it is going to be done. He's estimated a cost and if that proves to be accurate, I will have the funds to finance it straight away. He'll be doing the work with his friend R, the landscape gardener who installed the new fencing for us earlier in the year. It's all very exciting!
