Started off fine. In the evening worked for another customer. Afterward met up with Ed and Mary in the Bow Bar, and then ate Pizza and Chilli in Mammas Pizza Company. My Chilli was ordered extra hot, now regretting it a day later.
Alas, the weather turned bad, and the rain hammered down. Not so good when I was doing my Newcastle dress impression. At least Tee shirts dry quickly.
Flew up to Edinburgh from Birmingham. Good day in Edinburgh. I did little in the evening. I had to work for another customer, so spent my time dialled up at hotel phone rates. Ate in the hotel restaurant, chose the tuna. They love to serve it raw. Cooking it means to place the tuna on top of a hot vegetable.
Sunny all day. First started work on the spare room, moved the power sockets and removed the radiator in preparation for the dry-lining, due to start on Tuesday. Also filled the gap between the window frame and the wall with expanding foam. Caused a little grief to Rosemary. She thought I had not prepared adequately. The foam would not stop coming out of the nozzle and it has to be admitted, it went everywhere.
Mowed the lawn and the borders of the field. Then spent the rest of the afternoon sorting out the wood shed.
We drove to High Wycombe to John Lewis where I admired the huge TFT and Plasma displays showing a BBC HD trial channel. Yes, you can see all the wrinkles and spots on the actors’ faces. Popped into Asda, where we bought really cheap petrol, as well as the Fired Earth shop.
On the way home stopped off for lunch in a small hotel, The Rose & Crown, between High Wycombe and Princes Risborourgh. Good – Rosemary had two starters (Thai fish cakes & stir fried duck), while I went for a fish main course.
