Listening to: Sheryl Crow
Reading: next on my TBR
Busy day yesterday. Went into town with son and Madam while DH visited his mother. Nipped into Borders and signed the most enormous pile of books – this little lot in front of me is a tiny fraction of them. Every time I thought I was making headway, the store manager appeared with another pile. Madam was in charge of adding the 'signed by author' stickers, and son was in charge of stacking them. Son also took photograph (urrgh, first one was a side-on view. A definite incentive to sort out weight control. I have been doing about 15,000 steps a day during the hols, though).
Then we went shopping for Madam’s birthday pressie. Unfortunately, the bracelet she wanted was unavailable (the one with the lobster clasp and a dangly bit), but we bought the charm she wanted. Persuaded the kids to let me go into a couple of churches (and what a LOVELY welcome we had at St George’s Tombland) for pics; then lunch; then home.
Unbeknown to Madam, I did a quick ring round the other three jewellers in Norfolk who stock Pandora. Managed to source her bracelet, and even better they’re posting it to me (cost is much less than the petrol would be, as said jeweller is in Burnham). Am looking forward to seeing her face on Saturday when she opens a small parcel, expecting it to be just the teddy bear charm, and discovers the bracelet attached to it. I love putting a bit of sunshine into people’s lives.
Apparently snow fell in London yesterday – the first time it’s snowed in London during October since 1934. This morning, we appear to have another sharp frost, but thankfully no white stuff. Hope it stays away.
Plans for today: lazy day in. Really, REALLY must tidy desk...
