Yesterday afternoon I was able to finish the third chart on the Fat Man SAL so it's halfway to being completed now. I've decided to work on another of the charts next week instead of the bird house which I think I will probably leave until last. It's hard to believe we are already at week 12 of the SAL so if progress continues as well as it has I'm hoping that it will be finished in at least another 12 weeks which will be around the 17th September - a target I'm now setting myself.
It was a rushed start to the morning yesterday. I had a 5am start and I set my alarm on my mobile phone as usual but for some reason it didn't go off. I was woken up by a text message from my work colleague asking if I'd forgotton to pick her up - this was at 4.40. I leapt out of bed quickly getting dressed and rushed out of the door to pick her up and sped into work -thankfully not many people around at that time of day and parked up in the nearest place possible to work. It was then a mad scurry up the hill to work and we managed to clock in with 2 minutes to spare! All I can say it was a good job the text came straight through and wasn't floating around for hours as can sometimes happen. When I got home this afternoon I set the alarm several times and each time it failed to go off. When DH got home he tried ringing me and it seems the sound has gone on my phone - so the alarm was probably going off but there was just no sound. It's a very old phone, a hand me down from the children so I guess it's time for me to get myself a new one. In the meantime I will be buying a small alarm clock while out with mother today as I have another 5am start on Thursday.
Wimbledon has started and today I will be agonising with hundreds of others as we watch Andy Murray start his campaign. It's almost as agonising as watching the England football team!
