What a rush there is in the morning to get out of the house. Struggling to rise when the sun has not risen is not my favourite moment, let alone washing in cold water because the heated stuff has not yet come through the pipe. Still in spite of the struggle I managed to get out of the house and into the museum five minutes down the road by ten o'clock! How did I ever get out at 4:30 in the morning in days past?
How lovely to be back once again, even though as I walked in they all walked out flinging the keys in my direction and rushed of to an important meeting over the road. Are the pubs open I wondered? So I was left alone, bar Peggy that is, in charge of an empty building. As always no-one came until around eleven when they all came at once, can they not get up either?
While quiet I tidied up as best I could accidentally placing all my books in noticeable positions and making use of then'Macro' setting on the wee camera. It enabled a better view of the little items I thought. The Piggy Bank is life size in the picture, we have sold lots of those at £1:60 and the key rings sell well to kids. It is a bit much that 'shillings,' once regularly bouncing along in my pocket, are now sold as keyrings in such places! We also had a book, 'The 60's House' which regarded such furniture pictured as of a bygone era when it was only yesterday.
Still the morning was reasonably quiet but I managed to sell a few books and took some cash so keeping me awake. I would have drunk coffee to keep me awake but Peggy pretended she was busy and I had to make it myself when the rest returned worn out and bleating from their meeting. It is unfair, so it is I say. Peggy also avoided coming near me while I was forced to listen to a woman talking, you know the type, once started it is hard to stop them. Some of what she said was relevant to the point made! She has promised to come back next week. Indeed several visitors will return next week, I suppose not to see me but the new exhibition, but you can never tell can you?
The Gas man has asked me to send him a meter reading. This done I notice he suggests I alter the amount paid monthly but his suggestion is higher than I am willing to pay. Funnily enough his online system will not work correctly unless I pay his 'suggested amount,' so I have left it unchanged and switched of the heating. I can rough it.
