Reason for stopping: Had to go shopping for food and get things ready for tomorrow.

I'm still finding little continuity glitches. Spent more time than I should agonising over the discrepencies in the meat order delivered by the butcher's boy. In Chapter 3 Wil says he met the the boy and placed an order for beef and bacon. In Chapter 4 the butcher's boy didn't know who he was and then hands over a parcel containing mutton chops, sausages, bacon and shin beef. Aarrgghh! *Tears out hair*

Continuity glitch now reconciled.

Fortunately I will be able to stock up tomorrow in Ruthin before the evening class.

  • Gardening and reading

    I didn't sleep well last night. I woke up at 1.30 a.m. feeling very shivery (a reaction to the flu jab I had yesterday). I then slept for a bit but…

  • Flu jab has been achieved

    G and I had our flu jabs this morning. They were using the same system as for the covid shots, that is they take over the leisure centre and have…

  • Busy morning
