It has been a day of some achievement. Helen came here this morning and we paid the Care at Home organisation for the initial fortnight, and sent them a computerised signature. We were using an account that I don’t ordinarily use and it involved Helen running up and down the passage to the telephone a lot, authenticating things. But it’s done. The carer will arrive Monday lunchtime. I’ve even ordered some frozen meals from Cook for us. I have been forced by solicitous relatives to give up my beloved cider until some indefinite time after surgery, and I miss it, I must say.
And I did two more rows of knitting, as well. It would be nice if I could finish the borders before I go to Cramond, leaving only the peaceful edging.
Wordle: I was very relieved to scrape home with a six this morning – my winning streak thus preserved. There was a good spread of scores, but nobody else had that much trouble. I will try to remember the circumstances to tell you tomorrow. Mark was today’s star, with the only three. Four for Roger (safely back in DC, I hope), Alexander and Ketki. Five for Thomas, Rachel and Theo.
