Aunty J is still without water and so is popping over to GC’s for showers etc. Electric is back tho’. According to Dad, the water at home may go off tomorrow. Something to do with the reservoirs having run dry. Contingency plans being made (largely around sterilising the slurry tanker and utilising nearby rivers….) but hopefully it won’t come to that. Apparently the cows are all shut up still (since it was wet earlier on in the month).
In other news:
TractorBoy’s had some preliminary driving lessons and has managed to steer the Land Rover in a straight line in first gear. BonnyGirl is beginning to toddle (having bypassed the crawling stage it seems) and is beginning to create havoc.
Dad’s farmers’ collective have bought a couple of seats near the centre line in the new stand at Kingsholm. Nice!
Into work this morning with a happy smile on my face – snow! About an inch thick which I gaily scraped off the car. Took 18 mins to get to the car park and then a nice bracing walk to the office.
Gave RA a lift to church, and RA and LG a lift back.
Have mislaid my PDA – hopefully still at work, although the obsessive check of handbag before leaving the office should mean that it was in my bag before I left for church. However, not in bag when came to pack up after CF study. Odd.
This morning it was like a proper winter, mind. It probably didn’t help that I left the house without scarf or gloves, but then, I was intending to wait only 3 mins for the bus (I’ve got the morning journey nicely timed now). However, as I was foolishly trying to catch a bus at half eight, it decided to sail right past me without stopping (please TfL – more buses in rush hour!), and I had to wait 20 mins for another one. I was very cold indeed.
Up to Genesis 26 (I’m moving about a bit from 1 chapter from 4 different books a day – a little bit too choppy – so today, 4 chapters from Genesis instead) – interesting to note that Esau was making life bitter for Isaac and Rebekah before Isaac blessed Jacob in Esau’s place vv.34-35. That is, unless this bit isn’t chronological (should be able to work this out by looking at how old Isaac is when he dies, how old he was when Esau was born, and noting that Esau was forty when he married.)
Left work at 19.45.
