Decided to have a lie in today. My daughter did the weekly shop for me. I wanted to rush out and get the papers then eat breakfast. First I met my neighbour who wanted to tell me how she had spent 3 weeks with her family in Sicilly. Then in the paper shop I made a comment about an Indian cricketer only to have a five minute burst back ob corruption in the Indian game. Then I joked 'will your son play for Sri Lanka or England?' Only to get another lecture on Sri Lankan cricket and why his new born son would play for England. I know very little about cricket or any sport, but I can pick up snippets of information which make me appear to be an expert. So I get caught up in these harangues with lots of relative strangers. So back 30 minutes later to eat breakfast.
My friend in Ireland sent me a Facebook message this afternoon. In the last two weeks she has had four relatives and close friends die. She says she is devastated.
Other than that nothing much happening. My daughter was having her hair cut before she goes out for her birthday. It took her an hour to get ready, washing her hair, having a shower, fresh make up. I mean leave me out! It's not a big date or occasion, she was going to the hairdresser, a local one at that.
