Once again I woke up early and went downstairs. I slept on the sofa for a while then I had a phone call from a friend I hadn't seen in months. He was in the area and so called around at about 9.30 and stayed for a couple of hours. It was good to catch up, even if most of the conversation appeared to be about how ill we'd been. We played a bit of guitar and generally had a good time.
My friend Stuart phoned. We're going to see him on Saturday, all being well.
Chris finished his driving job early and worked in the garden all afternoon making a pergola to replace the metal archway that rusted away and had sagged under the weight of honeysuckle. It's almost complete now and looks really good, almost 20 feet long and will be support for two different honeysuckles, a climbing rose, winter flowering jasmine and some loganberries. It should look great next summer.
I didn't eat much during the day but had a good dinner. I'm supposed to drink a lot but kept letting my coffee go cold. Hmmmm. I went to bed at 9.00 not feeling entirely well.
