In spite of the cutting east wind the sun shone brightly all day today giving a fair impersonation of Spring. I left the museum just after four having been called in while attempting to clean the oven. What a relief I thought! So the rest of the oven can get clean round about July now, maybe. This was my day of odd jobs, sinks, loo, oven and a dozen little things were all lined up waiting for a woman to do them and none have shown so far. This means I must do them but hark the museum calls all day tomorrow (Thursday to you) as I am on duty in the morning and the Crittalls reunion is in the afternoon. Hopefully dozens will come to gossip and reminisce during the afternoon, quietly as I will be sleeping at the desk.
Friday sees me back again as instead of watching St Johnstone playing Aberdeen I have been dragged into a quiz team at the museum (at £5 a go I add!) on Friday night! I have not been out on a Friday night for about oh, twenty years! I might need a guide to get back home. This will disturb my routine something awful and I may not survive. Oh I feel queasy thinking about it.
