So far this week...

Is Sunday the beginning of the week or the end? I usually consider Monday as the first day of the week. This keeps the weekend together at the end of the week, but I know some calendars begin on a Sunday.

Anyway, I'll count Sunday this time. Last Sunday the weather was lovely and sunny so I went out to shoot another video. Arriving at the car park, I nearly turned straight round and drove home because it was full and swarming with people. However, there was a parking space and it soon became apparent that all the tourists were doing the Precipice Walk whereas I was doing a new and little known walk that starts from the same point. As soon as I left the car park, I didn't see anyone hardly. I'm pretty happy about being near people outside, but I doubt they were day trippers because we're quite a long way from where most of our visitors come from, namely the Midlands and North West of England. This is where covid infection rates are terrifically higher than here, which is why we haven't eaten out since January and I go into town as little as possible.

Yesterday I started the video editing and the new computer handles the files so much better. No hiccups every time it moves from clip to clip when I try to play the video to see how it's coming along.

Then today my miraculous "repair" of G's computer failed and it refused to come on. However, the couple of day's grace meant that he had had time to ensure that everything was backed up and we have a new computer ordered which should be delivered tomorrow. The problem with buying both computers together meant that they both failed together.

Then today I did the weekly food shop. Until now, I've been doing it on a Thursday but the Welsh classes start back (online) again this week and because my previous tutor has retired, I'll be joining a new class with a new tutor and it's held on a Thursday morning. This means I will now need to do a mini top-up shop on Fridays to pick up the local paper and the pizzas, which traditionally we have on Friday evening. Though I complained above about tourists, the town is much quieter now because as the schools have gone back, families can't go on holiday, so the Co-op shouldn't be too busy and I feel I can risk two visits per week. The people milling around in the car park were childless couples, many of around my age, who take advantage of any nice weather in September to get away for a few days.
