    Much rain ongoing.

    First bed linen load done and hung about. Duvet cover is now in the WM.
    I did a stroll around Windsor on 2 Oct for Alzheimer's Society. You can chuck me a few quid here if you like: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/lmallen-1

      I agree a collection day with the first person to ask for the item I've listed. It's a couple of days away, no issue for me. Someone else expresses an interest and I say that it's due to be collected on x day but if they don't turn up, they get next dibs. That person then says "but I can collect sooner" like I'm just going to tell the first person to naff off because of a quicker collection. I guess some people are like that but I'm not one of them.
      we were getting rid of a tree and one chap said can you cut it up small for me (it was in boot size pieces) some people!
      "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

      I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

        Aaargh! Now I'm being asked by the person who is supposed to collect the item if it's heavy. I put in the listing "it's about 18kg so bear that in mind if collecting on foot".

          Lunch: roast pork (out of the freezer) in a wholemeal bap with apple sauce

          Only 16°C out according to official sources, yet it seems warm enough for me to have the windows open front and back and a nice breeze wafting through the place

          And I have stripped the bed. Later, I'm going to get Henry to vacuum the mattress and also flip it so he can do both sides. And when I make it, it will be with the new M&S bedding I recently treated myself to, along with a set of brand new pillows!

            You must be feeling better if you're up for flipping mattresses about!

              The day not being particularly busy, I found time to get the mundane laundry on for a Quick Wash in the afternoon

              Henry did a good job of vacuuming the mattress, and also getting rid of the accumulation of dust under the bed, in the nooks and crannies of the bed frame, and so on. And then he sorted out the living room carpet (where accessible) too.

              And the bed has just been re-made, except for the new pillows (and new pillow protectors) which I've only just retrieved from their packaging and have left to air for a bit

                Yes, the itching is basically a thing of the past now, and I'm not feeling anything like as run down today

                Still covered in sores that are, in the case of the larger ones, developing impressive scabs. So I'm not ready for my close-up, Mr. de Mille

                  There was a nice rainbow outside about twenty minutes ago

                  Sainsbury's Delivery Wait begins in a minute or so… hope they're here soon, I'm getting quite peckish

                    The Sainsbury's delivery arrived! All put away and cooking has commenced

                    I didn't need very much stuff, but at least spiralling inflation makes it easier to hit the £40 figure that gets you £1 delivery (if you take your chances on unpopular timeslots). And it's always easy to bump it up with stuff that keeps for a while, like wine and beer

                      Much Trucking Hell watched.

                      Bed not yet made but I can't possibly stop TH to do it.
