I’ve not been doing much today. I’ve been sitting and waiting. Waiting for the storms. The weather was so hot last week that it was inevitable we would get a big electric storm. It’s due today. It hasn’t arrived yet.

I’ve also been waiting for Norovirus. I must get it soon! Living nearby, my daughter, her family and in-laws all have it. My wife has suffered it for two days.

Sneaking downstairs at 4am, she found the place exactly as she left it. My only excuse is that I’m a bloke... and I dare not touch and tidy anything!

    I hope Mrs. H is doing better after her ailment. As far as you being a bloke, there's no cure for that, I'm afraid! (At least not without some major surgery!)

    I was trying to zoom in on the new profile picture and accidentally unfollowed you, so if you see that I just started following you it's because of that. I read in one of the other comments that you made those. Are those guitars playable?

    Hopefully they will be relatively soon, but I have to finish them off. They’re only 3 and 4 string ones but there’s quite a lot of people making them over here now, and over there. My son—in-law has completed his and it both looks great and plays well. I hope mine are as good when I’ve finished them (after the holiday and tomato-growing season!). Then I’ll have to learn to play them!

    Thanks. Verity wanted to see them... it wasn’t bragging, this time! The pressure’s on now. I promised one to each of the grandchildren and one of the 11 year olds is on my case!😬

    I hope the family is well. Love that drabble but hey, being a bloke, isn't it the sempiternal cliché for ''not daring touching or tidying anything?'' 😁

    Hehe! I reckon you’re right, Frenchie!

    We’re all good now and I dodged the Norovirus!
