Morning, Noon and Night.
For the first time this week I rose without the heavy sleep hanging over me, a touch off that bug that has been going around here. So just after seven a.m. I trudged in the freezing weather up to Sainsburys. It was colder than I anticipated, some frost lay in places in the park, and I was unable to open my eyes properly but that means nothing at that time in the morning.
High above the warning red sky offered a day of terrible weather even if the BBC site claims it will be chilly but none too bad around here. Rarely does the red sky warning fail, somewhere today someone will feel the weather hurt them badly and I therefore must lay plans to stay in all day, once I have popped into the museum to pass on some info for one of the volunteers there. I expect grumbling re the cold to be heard all around, but not from me as I never complain....
Wandering round to the museum just after ten with the weather colder than it was at seven I went to drop off the material for Keith. He was busily involved in researching Braintree history back into the distant past. What will come from this I know not but it looks good. Judging by the size of he work he has done I am glad he is doing this and not me.
I am much happier than he, he is meeting with others to discuss that work, while I am watching the Scottish Cup on the BBC. Much better than making my head spin with staring at long lines of aged information written in small and often undiscernible letters.
My busy day is over, two football matches and reading my book has worn me out. I had little time to spend arguing with Brexit lovers today, they must miss me? Mind you Brexit has been pushed back by Prince Philip proving his manhood by crashing cars and then returning to the wheel without using a seat belt. Vast acres after the accident spoke of his 'bravery' but almost none mentioned the people he crashed into. They were of no importance I suppose. I wonder who pays for the cars he crashes...?
