After months of grey weather, dark, cloud-covered skies that looked like lead, today is a BRILLIANT, totally cloudless day, the sun is shining, there is a bit of frost in the air, and the sky is blue, really blue!!! Something I thought would not happen to us any more. And I am all on my own, kids in school --- and cannot go out. The furniture people have written they'd deliver the new sofas this morning "...before 1 p.m." and I have been waiting for them for hours (it is now 12:15 p.m.) and who has not shown their face as yet? The furniture people. GRRRRRR!
