Easter is defined by 24 hour periods when non-essential services are suspended. The only other day when this happens is Christmas. It is necessary to stock up before these days come around with supplies of bread and milk. We had a larger than normal shopping expedition and picked up a few things that the supermarket were selling today because they wouldn’t keep until they opened again on Monday.

Tessa got venturesome and followed us down the hill to the Salmond Hall driveway on Knox Street. We came back that way up the hill in the dark to collect her. She was fairly tuckered out when we got her home again. I wonder if this will mean that she will follow me in the mornings to the archives.

Went to the gym today. With the weather as it was there wasn’t much else to do. I have now got the treadmill up to shambling speed for three minutes at a time.
