Back to relative normality today. My wife leaves for work, and I consult (and add to) my list of things that I need to do.
I receive an email from the holiday company confirming the holiday in Egypt that I booked online last night (which is good!), and I follow some advice from a traveller’s review on Tripadvisor and book an Egyptian taxi firm for our airport transfers at a fraction of the cost quoted by the holiday company.
I (at long last) prepare an invoice (for tasks I performed at The Executor’s request) and email it to the solicitors who are Executors of my late next door neighbour’s will (that one has been on my list for at least 3 or 4 months – crossed off with a vengeance!).
I order some Calor gas cylinders (for my boiler) and then try to order some firewood (and fail – they are still closed until the end of the week).
I get the last of the logs in from the back garden, and light the woodburner – the last fire we’ll be having this week, I’m guessing!
