A Day of Rest and a Visit.
Yesterdays early morning sun (I didn't see this mornings as I was still akip) shone brightly. I struggled out of bed to attempt to clear up the mansion before my niece arrived. This is her every eighteen month or so visit the intention being to see if I am still alive and to see if I have any money. Sad to say she was disappointed in both endeavours! Not only am I still alive (in one fashion at least) the money has not as yet made an appearance. I took the opportunity to visit the museum to prove to the doubters that I actually had a talented family member.
As my most beautiful and highly talented niece was only here for a few hours to run her finger over the dust on the mantelpiece and fail to engender any guilt from me while doing so it was a chance to eat properly, or so I thought. I bought reasonably well and she ate it all! We then talked, well I listened while she spoke of her world travels and musical talent. I have musical talent also, daily I play the wireless! At least she left some organic chocolate which has put a smile on my face and a hole in my teeth.
Today I have been recovering from the aches and pains, the tiredness and eventually clearing up the mess left from our dinner yesterday, the leftovers made an excellent breakfast! I didn't realise until today how tired I was! How it catches up with you when not expecting it.
Next week, maybe tomorrow, I will begin my new exercise programme that I will devise. I intend to get fit, certainly fit enough to meet my niece at the station and walk home as fast as she did. I only puffed so much because we were walking up a slight slope!
Time for bed, it's just after six...
