Greetings, villagers, from cool, dull and very wet Oxfordshire.
Sorry to see you have to self isolate, Steve.
I found it hard to get to sleep last night even though I was up late finishing some more hair slides. Then YD woke me going to the bathroom in the middle of the night and I couldn't go back to sleep for hours. Half the day has been wasted now. OH is complaining because he couldn't do anything noisy in case it woke me. He can't work outside because of the rain so was planning to do some repairs to the walkway in the loft this morning. He's going to start work now.
The monthly village magazine has come out, with a front page photo of the vicar holding my harvest loaf. I'm named. That's the first and probably the only time I'll ever make the front page. Inside the magazine there was sad news of three villagers I knew who have died recently. One was the grandfather of one of YD's old classmates, another the husband of one of our former church café helpers, and the third was a previous Brownie leader and helper on the cake stall at the church fete.
YD's gaming evening was postponed when one of her friends couldn't make it last night. It's on again tonight, because the friend who asked for a change of date had mistaken the day they were unavailable, which is next Saturday, not today.
ED is feeling sorry for herself, having had her wisdom teeth out yesterday. She is on antibiotics and painkillers.
I'm going to do a little more work on the Map of Ambridge.

Yup... You are touching on a nerve.... I'm still awaiting the Council (spit) to mend the surface water drains that call the downpipe from the adjoining houses roof gatters. As my house is in a corner, it is my housde that catches the overflow which spills into mt roofspace. Gotta go and chemge the buckets.
Greetings, villagers, from cool, dull and very wet Oxfordshire, a repeat of yesterday.
Nothing much to report here. When YD came downstairs she saw Salem and Jasper sitting near the front door and looking up. She wondered why, and then spotted a mouse which had escaped the cats and climbed up the curtain onto the curtain rail. YD rescued it and took it along the lane to the farm. None of the cats followed her because it was raining hard by then.
When it stops raining, sometime this afternoon we hope, OH will go and clean the Eglu. He couldn't do it in the pouring rain yesterday.
ED has messaged to say she is feeling better than she expected, two days after having her wisdom teeth out. ED and her OH seem to have got over their bad patch, having worried the rest of the family sick. ED says they hope to be able to move to their new house by Christmas. The building company get a bonus if they finish by a certain date. The roof is on, the siding is up, the electrics and plumbing are in. Waterproofing the foundations still needs to be done, the porch has to be put on and the landscaping done, as well as the insulation and drywall.
