    I may go shopping, I’m at the age when shopping counts as an outing.

    later on I might retrieve a wedge of old diaries to read, just in case I’ve forgotten anything important. Like who owes me what, since I have lent things over the years. ?

    I'm also still trying to work out the meaning of a dead mouse left on my front doorstep. My neighbour said it was a warning from a cat, my eldest thinks it’s a gift from a cat, but we have no cat! Puzzled ?

           It's a present from a cat @leeCal, you should be honoured... they don't leave presents for just anyone  ;) 
               My son once woke up to a slice of pizza on his pillow that the cat brought home   :s

    Hope you you have a lovely, relaxing holiday @janer1967
    The dead mouse is definitely a present from a friendly cat @leeCal - I was on the phone to my daughter a couple of weeks back, & heard this clattering & banging in the house. My cat had knocked things over in the bathroom & was in a corner of the room. When she moved as I was picking things up, a mouse ran towards me.....which definitely gave me things! I picked it up with some toilet roll....nothing else was to hand, & managed to get it out the front door.
    I can hardly believe the slice of pizza @vikingqueen :)

    Have a fab holiday. I hope the weather stays good is for.

    Today is the day I will sort out my clothes, after days of putting it off. Then throw out some old ones and give some good but unneeded ones to a local charity shop.

    Not suggesting you should not give to charity, but, as for the clothes that you were going to throw out, there are clothes banks that give you money for old clothes, by weight.

    Maybe see where your local one is and take them there?
