Not that late a start, woken by 'cooped-up child noise'. This is known as cabin fever by some, and indicates a need to get out of the house.
I had sent a message to Councillor James Alexander last night after I'd had a few fairly cryptic words spoken to me by Cllr. Dave Merrett about the balloon release... and I asked Cllr. Alexander if he had changed his plans to release the helium balloons? Today I got a reply... and YES! Councillor Alexander had changed his plans, and was going to keep the balloons tethered. A win.
Soon after midday, Sue came round to look through the SUMA catalogue, and spent about three hours looking through and making an order of 3 items, for £25.
I did a bout of chainsawing, chopping up 3 or 4 pallets, and then stacking dry logs and layers of pallet wood.
I went to buy a jar of coffee in the early evening, and found my bike back wheel had come off somehow, so I walked down to the Co-op with Sue, and when I came back (and she eventually went!) I sorted my bike out. It has a quick release wheel which had, well, quick released.
I had the last of the squash soup for tea and then cycled off to Green Drinks at the 3 Legged Mare. I was glad I went, as there was a new chap attending, called Kit, and if I hadn't had been there, he'd have wondered whether he was in the right place. Anyway, we had a good chat, and then Graham arrived, and then Melanie, so it was a worthwhile meet up.
I came back via a logpile and was glad to warm up.
