It was just a little shop at Lidl today as we're going away. I didn't even bother to buy any flowers. The roses I bought last week have died but the alstroemeria I bought 2 weeks ago are still going strong and only cost £2.
I've made a start on the jigsaw. Thankfully, it's not too taxing on the old brain and I've had a little bit of 'help' from Thomas. After trying to do it properly and getting nowhere, he decided to just randomly stick pieces wherever he felt like. Amy is a complete hopeless case where jigsaws are concerned. She has no patience for them and just doesn't get the concept of turning a piece around to see if it will fit.
Mark has a new phone so I've been upgraded to his old one. Which means I had to listen to him explaining about internet, e-mails, and iCloud. After 10 minutes of him talking and me drifting off to another planet called 'what shall I make for tea', he asked me a question and I had to confess that I hadn't actually heard a word he'd said. My theory is as long as I can make a call and text somebody I'll be fine. Honestly, when all this internet malarkey comes crashing down around our ears I'm sure I'll be one of the very few people on the planet who can still function quite happily.
We've had our shed roof re-felted today which means another job crossed off the list. We got the bloke's number from a local magazine and when he came round he was telling us he'd been made redundant last year. When he went to the job centre they suggested starting his own business so he decided he'd do odd jobs. I was a little concerned as this information only came out after we'd given him the job. He can't even afford a van yet so he walks from job to job with a little trolley that he carries his things on. We had a minor problem in that the nails he wanted to use were too long so Mark had to run him to the shop to buy some more, but apart from that the job is a very good one. I have to say my heart melted a little bit when he unwrapped his new tool belt to wear.
