Thank you for your comments on yesterday's post, and particular thanks to Chris for sending the Spring - it's been a beautiful day today - and to Rog for his sound sense. I usually listen to podcasts when I've missed something, I've not got into the way of subscribing, but it's the obvious thing to do now that there's nothing to listen to at the time I want to turn on the radio. I have acted on the suggestion and now have a nice little array of programmes on the phone ready to entertain me. In fact, I've heard some of them already today.
My car's battery was flat again yesterday and the Sage gave me a lift. Today, it has a new battery. And we've reattached the bicycle brake - a cable had come apart. I've phoned and paid for my car insurance, and told the man on the end of the phone (who answered at once, there wasn't even time for the announcement to say that my call would be taken shortly) that I was pleased with the reasonable quote and hadn't looked any further. The excess has gone up, but I've never actually had a claim and, although it can happen at any time of course, I'd probably rather have a lower premium rather than a lower excess that I may never use. Um, and I've made an appointment at the bank to put the vast (modest) sums of money that have accrued in my current account somewhere. I've defrosted a fridge. I've filled in a form that's been glaring malevolently at me for the last few days and I signed a letter to go out to school parents on Monday. I didn't write it on this occasion, though. So I've got the day-to-day admin out of the way before the weekend. Jolly good.
The other thing that I just remembered was that there were new levels due out this evening on iAssociate and I've just downloaded them. So that will entertain me for the rest of the evening.
