Work, today went quite well really. Much better than expected. The ‘desk-mess’ I was dreading did not materialise. If fact, it was quite clear for a week off. It was as busy as I had thought, which was good.
The trip to S**** was very quick. I texted around 11:00, to let him know I was coming, but he was still in bed when I got there. I arrived at 12:15, and by 12:30 was in the Hope Inn, having a pint !!!! It was quite funny. I told him I was not stopping, as you do, and his reply was “There’s not much point you coming all the way upstairs then”. All I could do was agree. So I shut the door and went !! I think he went back to bed !!
Youngest lad has been very good tonight. No problems to speak of. It’s 11:00pm, and he seems to be in a good state of mind. However, we have been here before. He could change at any moment.
Did I mention, that I bought a bargain book from the Martin House charity shop ? It is a biography of Eleanor of Aquitaine, by Marion Meade. Why such a bargain ? It has never been opened. The spine is in perfect condition and at only 80p, it amounts to a saving of £8.19. Now that’s a bargain. So who is Eleanor of Aquitaine I hear (some) you say. She was the wife of Henry II, mother to eight children, of whom the most well known are Richard Coeur-de-Lion and the ‘evil’ Prince John. This period in history is one of my favourite eras. However, with the fantasy novel I’m reading at the moment, it may be a while before I get around to reading it.
All done. Lets see what tomorrow will bring.
