On Friday, K had to be escorted down to the Adult Education Centre to begin her new course in Yoga. Yoga! As if she’s not laid back and relaxed enough! It really ought to be me beginning Yoga class seeing as I am the uptight one out of this duo! As it turned out, I very nearly needed more than Yoga, I nearly needed some smelling salts to help my recovery from shock! The reason? We had to use the bus before 9.30am and therefore we had to pay some bus fare.
Yesterday the plumber finally arrived. It turned out to be one half of the A team. Remember? The duo who on seeing the amount of work involved in sorting out the leak last time promptly scarpered off on holiday? He’s lost his trusty sidekick. Apparently because the young un had completed his second year at college, The housing association could not afford to keep him on and so he’s been finished. This led to a lengthy discussion between us both about the sad demise of apprenticeships and who was going to do all the plumbing, electrics and joinery jobs when the older guys retire.
It’s ended up being a day full of incidents today that have left me thinking that maybe my lousy memory isn’t that bad after all. Yes folks, I have actually found out that there are at least two people who are as dippy or even dippier than I am!
Today began as usual with me waking at 4.30am (sigh) and so not being able to go back to sleep, I busied myself writing one of my blogs. I had breakfast (K was still fast asleep) showered and dressed, faffed about trying to style my hair although that turned out to be a waste of time, with K finally emerging from her bedroom at about 9.45am. We both killed some time doing nothing in particular and finally set off at 11.00am for exercise class. It wasn’t too hot walking down, it turned out to be quite an enjoyable walk as a matter of fact. My camera was in my bag as usual, but for some reason I didn’t bother taking any photos during the journey down. When we arrived, the previous exercise class was just ending and all the participants were sauntering out the door.
