No sooner had I been told that the plumbing work wasn't going to be done until tomorrow (Friday) than I decided I wanted to go and get something to eat from Waitrose or Sainsbury's. Then I saw, by looking out of the kitchen window, that I wasn't going to be able to reverse out of the parking space because there was a car immediately behind, parked in the way, with a woman talking to another two in the road. They were deep in conversation, totally oblivious to what was going on around them and unaware that they were blocking in our car. I thought they'd be gone in a few minutes, but even after a good twenty minutes, they were still there, continuing their discussion. I began to think I wasn't going to be able to get out, so stayed in the house and made myself something to eat without going anywhere. They did eventually move away, but even then it didn't seem in the least bit conscious that someone was needing to reverse out of their parking space.
It's quite chilly this morning. Dry, but deceptively warm, but it's cold.
