It looks as if we’re all go.
I am in a state of considerable agitation. Greek Helen used to recommend valerian, and I think there may still be some in the dark recesses of the refrigerator. Does it go off? I had hoped not only to get myself ready, but also to tidy away the knitting books, throw away the rabbit food, and get in some meals suitable for the toothless in case my husband does, in fact, come home on Monday.
Not done. And there is suddenly a pile of bills – I haven’t written a cheque for weeks, but these are from small tradesmen who are good friends and need to be paid promptly – unlike BT and Scottish Gas, who can afford to wait. So that must be seen to. And arrangements for Perdita must be checked and re-checked. I will miss her dreadfully.
For now, I must go up Dublin Street to my hair appt…..
…That went well. Perdita’s arrangements are in order. The bills are paid, the knitting packed – enough for a six-month tour of duty on the International Space Station. I'm feeling slightly calmer. I’ll go to bed now and leave the rest for the morning. Back here Tuesday, insh’Allah.
Thank you for your kind words about the hap. The colours are Gudrun’s – I used exactly the Jamieson&Smith yarns she specified.
I finished-finished two pairs of socks, to take to London to give to whoever they fit. I suppose that should be "whomever" but that sounds affected.
