Catching up

The Gorse Fox has been catching up on some Walking Football admin. Contact lists, distribution lists, tournament details, team squads, and so forth. He's even had to write some Excel macros to reformat a list in such a way as to import it to Google Contacts. How quickly the mind fades! The GF found himself having to look up some functions that, in the old days, he would have written without an instant of hesitation.

The plaster in the Orangery is still drying out. Today's weather has been cool and damp, so progress isn't as obvious as yesterday. The Gorse Fox expects he may be in a position to pain on Monday, though.

Teen-sitting is next on the agenda. Urban-cub and Pistol Pete are off to see friends and staying overnight. They are not happy leaving the teens at home together... so we are looking after Amber until tomorrow. The Silver Vixen has just left to go and collect her.

I'm sure you know, but just in case you have forgotten, cheap "own brand" magnolia 50:50 with water as a "mist coat"

You are right - and that was also the advice the plasterer gave.

GF was hoping to get started on Monday - but it still hasn't fully dried out. It looks like it may be another couple of days at least.
