Started the day on good form - Anne was off super early and I got down to recording and uploading some more podcasts...

1972...


1973...


I was expecting my mum and sister around 10:30 so called a halt to proceedings...

Due to various factors, they arrived at 11:45 but brought lunch...

And hearing aids...


Sister Sheila was a little suspicious of my "scones" from yesterday...


I must admit to preferring hers, which she'd baked at 6 this morning...



They left around 2 with me not feeling too great...

I retired to bed rather than going for a walk...

I was awoken around five by a worried Anne who was supposed to not have returned but have gone straight to Edinburgh for tonight's performance by Ballet Rambert...

She had been unable to raise your correspondent...

All seemed ok...

So off she went to the ballet, meeting up with chum Theresa at Spoon (formerly Nicholson's - were JK Rowling wrote "Harry Potter" - as opposed to the claims of The Elephant House on George IV Bridge - always annoys me when I walk past that place and tourists are packing it out and milling about on the street taking pics, not realising they've been duped)...

Anyway, a small pizza and a couple of "Big Bang Theory" reruns and, after a couple of hours, I returned to my podcasting and recorded and uploaded my third of the day, 1974...


Then, awaiting Anne's return while watching Dominic Sandbrook's rather disjointed attempts to prove that today's UK culture is based on Victorian values - which, coincidentally, included footage of JK Rowling writing Harry Potter in Nicholson's cafe...

Anne arrived home at getting on for 11, having enjoyed what seemed to have been three quite excellent pieces from the talented young people at the Rambert...





We watched the end of "Question Time" but I fell asleep again during "This Week"...

Not doing too well today but let's hope it's just a passing phase...

Highlight of the Day : Sleeping...
