I need to work on the adventure bit.......

It is just as well I abandoned my attempt to record a photographic day in my life when I did yesterday. Believe me, I would not have wanted my grandchildren to think this was the way I lived. Beyond boring. And on top of that, I managed a row and a half of the ripple before I nodded off on the couch early in the evening and woke after midnight. At this rate it (the ripple) may be finished by December. 

 This morning, with blue skies and freezing cold to spur me on, I decided to go to the local supermarket. That required my car. My car refused to start. The battery was very dead. Deader than dead. I was not a happy bunny at all. So I phoned the Man Who Looks After My Car, and left a message that I needed help asap. He didn't call me back, so I started checking the prices of batteries on line, and then cleaned the inside of the car, and then came in because you have NO IDEA how awful my leg has been this week. Beyond foul. And I wanted to see which part exactly was so painful.

So there I was, inspecting the leg, when the doorbell rang. All I can say is thank heavens he didn't look through the windows. Bob, the superhero, had arrived. And one phone call and 15 minutes later, the new battery and new windscreen wipers arrived. He discovered that I needed new ones while ordering the battery.

I made coffee. He made my car go. And I impressed him no end by remembering the code for my radio/cd thingy. And then, after parting with more money than I want to think about right now (but very cheap in comparison to other places) I got into my car and headed for that supermarket. Where I promptly forgot what I needed to buy, forgot which special offers I thought worth getting, and so I bought a loaf of giraffe bread.

There is a story behind the giraffe bread, you see - you can go here to read all about it. Clever child. Everyone loves tiger giraffe bread. And it was definitely worth the outing to get some.
So, my adventure of the day was a visit to the supermarket. I would give that a 1 out of 100 on the adventure rating scale,. Sigh. Needs more work.

Let me see what tomorrow brings then........

I hope it brings you a less-sore leg.

That giraffe bread looks interesting. I am so glad that you have a new battery. Once those things start to act up, they are usually not long for this world. One needs to have a dependable vehicle for gathering in the sales and for giraffe bread. Hope that leg calms down and I thought you felt better in the colder weather.
