Dullness Personified

This morning we only had two parcels to do, which didn’t take long. In the afternoon we had four more sales. I suspect some people were bunking off and using the office computer for eBay instead of work.

The rest of the day was taken up with refilling drop down menus (which can be tricky if you let your mind drift), sorting coin covers (as in First Day Covers with coins on, not covers for coins) and drinking coffee.

It wasn’t the most interesting day I’ve ever had.

As you look at the pictures of First Day Covers, and your eyes glaze over, you may understand my view.

There was a letter from the Anticoagulant Service when I got home – I have passed yesterday’s blood test and as a reward I now have three weeks until the next test.

A busy evening followed, as I began work on my talk for the Numismatic Society.

I’m sure the enthusiasm will wear off soon…

Now I’m off to pick No2 Son up from work – he had a late shift today. It’s misleadingly named as the night shift is, of course, much later.

I’m not sure how long I can sustain this level of excitement.

I would say “be still, my beating heart”, but considering the dire warnings I keep getting from the Anticoagulant Service this might be tempting fate.

      We often buy modern collections – the beautifully printed albums go in the recycling bin and the stamps get stuck on envelopes. We turn down first day covers and most collections we are offered as they have no resale value. Amazing when you think how keen we all were as kids.

    I calculate the Queen has been married 72 years. You could reflect on that. I didn’t know coin covers were a thing, but then I’ve had a sheltered life!

    Don’t tempt fate, whatever you do! I also had a very boring day. Took my mother to the eye clinic in Norwich then shopped with her in Morrison’s in Diss. Bought eggs for her in Eye, handed her prescription request in at her surgery and then coffee at her house before returning home to do the laundry.
