After yesterday’s events, we are looking forward to a quiet day with no plans whatsoever.
Both of us had a good night’s sleep which certainly helped, and the meds are doing their stuff as Hubby is in considerably less pain today.
My back aches from sitting in the car too long, though I did get out often to walk about, plus go to the loo and buy myself something to eat and drink. I’d parked close to where the buses stopped, and vibrations from their engines reverberated under the car and through my feet which was a bit unnerving until I realised what it was. I could have moved, but the car park was busy so I stayed put.
It’s raining, and looks like being in for the day. Some of our dog walking friends have donned wellies and raincoats to take their pets for their usual walks. Front page news yesterday was that it has been agreed for dog owners to walk their pets twice a day.
Having finished my book and unable to put my head down for a nap, I chose the paper I did for the puzzle page, which as it turned out was nothing like I remember, probably because I bought the wrong paper (sigh). I was stunned by the articles within that were considered newsworthy (I suppose the headline should have been a mammoth clue), there was no jokes page, a sports supplement (something I’d forgotten it being Monday) and the majority of the back pages all to do with sport, the problem page was ‘tired’ and the TV listings made me so very glad we don’t have one.
I completed the crossword, arrow word and suduku, then tried my hand at the alphaword, where you are given two letters in a numbered grid and have to guess the rest. I’m not very good at those as a rule, and didn’t understand the clue, which was apparently supposed to help supply some more letters. I applied logic, looking for identical numbers side by side as that narrows down the choice, and if the end letter was the same, that was as good a starting point as any. Once I got going, it was finished in about an hour and the ‘answer’ to the clue didn’t make any sense anyway. Needless to say I will not be buying another paper today to see if my answers were correct. Everything fitted, so I guess I was right.
Our eating habits yesterday were dreadful, so I shall be trying to pull it back for the rest of the week. Lunch today will be bacon and some leftovers which have to be used up. It’s not as bad as it sounds because I don’t use oil to cook, tomatoes and mushrooms are free foods as are the eggs which we’ll poach, and I can syn the bread for toast.
