More of the same but with Added Doughnuts

Today, in the manner of these things, was rather like yesterday. It was hot, stuffy and windowless. However, I had cold water with me and a new mindset – no more boredom, just a new relaxation technique.

For the second day on the trot we were full of customers until 2 o’clock. This was good as we’ve been short of customers over the last few weeks because they all seem to have gone on holiday.

After a hard day at work (comparatively speaking – sitting down prodding a keyboard and chatting to customers is not exactly onerous) I returned home to find Julia turning the place upside down looking for lost keys. I am forbidden to mention it, as, three hours later, she found them in her purse. Talk about a senior moment. Not that I’m able to say too much after what happened last Monday.

On that subject, I had my blood test results – they are holding steady and I’m not required for another test until September. This is a good thing. It’s particularly good as it took some getting and I didn’t bleed after they took the needle out. That’s usually a bad sign and results in more tests. I’m obviously getting the hang of it now.

Julia bought doughnuts today, because jam, sugar and fat are just what I need in my attempt to lose weight.

However, Julia doesn’t need the calories either and I thought I’d better help her out. It seemed churlish not to. The only problem is that they always come in 5s, which means we are currently having an enquiry about who ate the fifth one while Julia was out of the room.

I’m saying nothing.

Today’s picture is another one from Crosby Beach – the RNLI patrol keeping an eye out for sightseers trapped in quicksand. It’s a tricky beach as this link shows.

The the Rain Started…

Another busy day, another load of parcels, and emails from customers.

We also had a steady flow of customers, two collections to buy and medallions to offer for sale.

I also had tomorrow to plan, which is a bit of a logistics nightmare. I’m picking Number One Son up and we are visiting my Dad as Number One Son is off to New Zealand at the end of the week. Yes, in just one week we will be empty nesters. I’d be inhuman not to feel a slight twinge at the thought. But it is a very small twinge.

The problem is that there is no rail service from Suffolk to Peterborough this weekend and the replacement bus service arrives too early or too late to be useful. So I’m now going to Ely for lunchtime tomorrow.

Then, after a hectic day, it started raining just as I got to the car…

I’ll publish now but may come back to edit and add photos.
