Friday afternoon - fireworks

Well, it's been a Friday. Friday morning and I went off with Viv to Bebington and then came back. It's pretty cold here. Some bits and pieces, picking up clothes that had fallen off the line, knocking the ice off them, washing the dishes, preparing for a phone interview this afternoon, looking at some scanning of images with Viv, general bits and pieces. Some ideas for websites and for shirt designs: maybe I'll implement them, maybe I won't.
At lunchtime we went to the Merebrook. Haven't been there for ages. I had a mixed grill, Viv had surf and turf. Then back to prepare for a 4:30pm phone interview. Told at just after 4 that it was postponed sine die. Hopefully more information on Monday.
Then off on another trip with Viv, but back now.
The long walk to the farm for the fireworks party is less than an hour away. Rumour has it that the bonfire will be started by a flaming arrow shot from the other side of the field. Let's see if it goes to plan...
