    Snowing here too. Not settling, but it's proper flakes and that

      Very clear skies here now, presaging the cold night to come. Looks nice though, with the sun gilding the tops of the trees

        Ercol, you say? Whatcha got?

        I still haven't gotten over my grandmother telling my Dad to take her old Ercol day bed frame to the tip. I had my eye on that and they had no idea of its worth.

              Tea has been oniony chicken casserole with chips and peas

              It was a little delayed because I finally resumed the arduous business of putting the pencil pleats into the curtains, as it really is about time they were hung

              One is now ready, and the other… dunno, maybe an eighth, possibly even a quarter done? It's a right pain, but I suppose it'll seem worth it once they're up

                Yes, I think it was the first time I'd returned immediately after Boring - and of course the last for now, as a certain global pandemic got in the way of the 2020 and subsequent ones

                  I probably mistyped Ech.

                    The car earlier was a Renault Alpine A310. No way to know what's become of it as they never registered it in the UK as nobody here wanted to buy it, and when they did find a buyer, they only covered their costs. And to add insult to injury, the buyer didn't even want to appear on the show

                    And then the gold diggers seemed to be chugging along, though I was a bit distracted with curtains and sorting out dinner

                    And then I discovered that there's been a new series of Traffic Cops and I hadn't even noticed; so S12E1 of that was watched

                    Then back to the curtains. These are now just about sorted, being at least roughly pleated down to something near the correct width and with hooks inserted. But I'm tired, and it seems sensible to leave the fiddly business of perching on the small steps hanging them until tomorrow

                    I'm rather tired now, so I'm going to take to my bed and read another chapter or two about Octavia, the female Messiah formerly of Albany Road, Bedford.
