I didn't want to get up today. I had no energy, but I could hear Keith moving about. I kept losing words when I was talking to two ladies in the local history group in town (I felt so stupid) and I haven't improved with keeping and would happily go to bed now, just before 7 p.m. but of course I can't. I lost two hours of my life today trying to sort out tv and wi-fi connection after Ghengis yet again knocked the main remote on the floor by taking a short cut to the sofa across Keith's table. WHY he can't just jump up on the sofa is beyond me!
When we FINALLY got it sorted (after I had phoned our broadband supplier, typed in the router number several times with all its upper and lower case and numbers - GRRR - reset the router to factory reset etc) there was no Netflix and it wanted me to take out another subscription - I was gnashing my teefs until I realized we had it through Sky, who had offered it cheaper than Netflix do. No wonder I didn't have a password in my little red book . . .
Pippi has been bringing in tiny voles (3) and then got me very cross when she bought in a butterfly (there were lots in the garden today) and then a 2nd and when I found a 3rd under the settle I shut her in for an hour or so. I can't forgive her for taking their power of flight away by batting them about. I've saved two bumble bees this week but it doesn't balance out those beautiful butterflies.
I guess something had to balance out the nice afternoon I had yesterday when I went to the first auction I'd been to since Lockdown - not that it was full of classy stuff and as I thought, anything decent didn't go cheaply. The things I liked were towards the end too and I wasn't hanging around for hours (it didn't start till 3.30 p.m.) and driving home in the dark. So I bid unsuccessfully on two items and went back into Pembridge to go round the church. I shall leave you with a photo of the amazing bell tower - I have never seen its like. Built in the early 13th C using HUGE trees, it was later enclosed. I'll do a proper post later in the week, when hopefully I am more with it.
This is one of 12 lovely embroideries inside the church and shows the construction of the bell tower. I love the idea of a Cowslip Fair too.
