Up just before 6 and listening to everything on shuffle...

13,146 albums...

Downstairs in the dark for coffee..

Created the family calendar and placed the order...

Then, uploading the podcast...

Post that, to the store for provisions - but, on arrival, realised I'd left my wallet at home...

All I had was a couple of quid in my pocket for rolls and bread...

When Anne finally arose, a squirrel was taking refuge on the window ledge from an annoying cat...

Breakfast at home...

Then, we watched the Blue Note documentary, "Beyond the Notes", which was very good indeed - just as it finished, Bob arrived with the last thing for the new bathroom...

Back upstairs, I played through some of the pieces featured in the doc and took some time to add release dates to around 100 of the 375 or so Blue Note albums in the collection for which said dates were, hitherto, missing...

Meanwhile, Anne started her third painting...

During a break, we watched the latest episode of "The Team"...

Then, back to work...

Anne painted on...

...and I continued to compile my big list of one LP for every month I've been alive...

In footie, in the cup, Queens were unexpectedly knocked out by Queens Park, 2-1 at home - hopeless - while Hearts were trounced 3-0 in the league, at Kilmarnock - not a good day...

Tasty chicken arrabiata for tea though... that was good...

Followed by a very large coffee, as I listened to music and Anne watched "Strictly"...

Later, we enjoyed the first two episodes in the second series of "The Sinner" - having not seen the first series but that didn't seem to matter...

More music listening closed the day...

Highlight of the Day : Blue Note delving...
