This morning the plan was to rise at six thirty, cycle around for a while, visit the fruit & veg man, shop at Tesco and post the last two Christmas cards. A simple straight forward day. As I rose just after seven the wireless announced rain, I peered through the condensation soaked windows at the gray clouds and the drizzling rain to confirm their suspicions. The bike faded from my mind, the veg could wait and I suddenly considered a slow breakfast important.
I eventually managed the shopping, lots of almost but not quite gone off fruit amongst it, one day I might take some of his 'eat quickly' fruit and stick it in a large vessel and let it ferment. It might turn into a nice fruit liqueur! Nothing then happened.
It didn't happen later on either.
The last cards entered Royal Mail's keeping, I wandered through Amazon looking for the last two gifts and had to stop myself spending large sums on myself! Why do they offer books I want but not books I require for others? I find other shops often have a similar problem. I am still looking for the other books...
I then spent lunchtime watching the Heart of Midlothian up at Aberdeen. I could have wished the game to have been rained off! It was not very good. We eventually lost to a lucky goal. I spent several minutes in tears then went wandering through the charity shops to cheer myself up. I succeeded in this the simple way by not spending any money. That at least was a good thing today.
The rain continues, the clouds promise to remain all week, I promise to keep wearing my 'Bah Humbug! hat at work where it serves a purpose. I wish I had bought more I could have made a packet selling them! Bah!
I'm going back to bed...
