After a holiday season of dreadful TV I’m happy to report that last night’s viewing was Calendar Girls. It was the second time I’ve seen it and I enjoyed it immensely. It’s a fantastic cast, great script and heart-warming story.
That set me up for a leisurely day.
I won four games of dominoes in the afternoon. The opposition was mainly provided by a ninety-year-old man who has trouble remembering that I’m his son, but you can only play what’s in front of you. My wife and sister both play to let him win but I think that’s discourteous, Anyway, when we played last week he wiped the floor with me despite my best efforts. He may be gradually forgetting everything he knows, but he’s successfully clinging to his domino skills.
This is the only thing of note that happened today, unless you count getting stuck in a chair.
We had a cup of tea in the newly refurbished reception area of the care home, which was very pleasant. When it was time to leave I found that the chair was clinging on, like an inappropriately affectionate koala. I really must lose weight.
We had salad and gala pie for tea on our return. Julia has just gone to the kitchen for cheese.
All in all, this has been a satisfactory sort of day.
The header picture is self-explanatory if you’ve seen the film, or mystifying if you haven’t. Same goes for the title.
