The blog title partly relates to the Professor taking things one day at a time, but so far things are going along fine. What is really annoying me at the moment is the Met Office. For about a week, I’ve had the experience of getting up the weather forecast and seeing that today is orange (’weather warning, Be Prepared’) tomorrow is yellow, and the rest of the week’s green - only when we get to tomorrow, the day’s orange, the next day’s yellow, etc. etc.. Normality keeps on receding into the future. This morning, all the gutters suddenly fell off the front of the house, something about which we can do absolutely nothing. We had the excellent company of the Northern Gentleman from Sunday night to this morning: I had to go to work on Monday, but on Tuesday, after I’d gone round Turriff sorting things out, including buying a new mattress, since we might be seeing a lot of it, I got back, and knowing that someone sensible was in charge, went to bed and slept for twenty hours, which made me feel a great deal better. Only five more days.
