My sister wanted to check I was alright since my decree nisi which she had presumed was my decree absolute.
No, I had to tell her, I am still legally married!
She chewed her lips in worry....
My elder sister is fiercely matriarchal...and would put Mildred Pierce to shame in a head to head.
I got my hair cut at my local barber who unfortunately was suffering from sickness and diarrhoea ( what a lottery!!!!)
Then I went to a furniture centre who sells big store seconds and bought a lovely "new" arm chair!
In the afternoon , my neighbour Trevor asked me to shake his fruit trees with a rake....in order to collect the apples.
I've done it every year since 2007
