|277/365: found this rose still flowering, hidden behind the penstemon|
Best laid plans and all that! I arrived home after personal training and luckily checked my messages before going shopping and found the notification that my oodie was being delivered that morning, so I settled down with a hot drink and waited patiently. Hot drink finished and no sign of the oodie so I started on the day's chores, thinking I could get the shopping done in the afternoon instead. The parcel turned up just before noon by which time I'd finished cleaning upstairs and had made a start on downstairs. Anyway, here it is ...
... it's actually wider than that chair and should be washed to make it fluff up to full fluffiness (because it was squished flat in vacuum packaging) but I did try it out. Bearing in mind it wasn't a cold day, I only managed to keep it on for about 15 minutes before I was absolutely baking and had to take it off! It's going to keep me warm and snuggly when the cold weather is with us.
I was eating my lunch before going shopping when the door bell rang and there was H, about four hours earlier than expected. So shopping didn't happen but we did have a good natter and put the world to rights, and caught up on texts, comments, etc. while still chatting away. We gave up on the idea of watching a film - we couldn't agree on what to watch - and spent the rest of the evening chatting until it was time for H to leave ... a great time had by all.
I'll get the shopping done first thing and then finish off cleaning the downstairs rooms. I've been notified that my new glasses are ready for collection so will pick those up while I'm in town. I'd like to take some photos of the autumn colour early this afternoon, maybe at Southwick Country Park or along the canal towpath, but it all depends on the weather as rain is forecast. I'm meeting H for coffee at 2pm before she drives back to Gloucester, and then back home for the leftovers from last night and a Zoom chat with L&P in the evening.
