All has been lovely and quiet here. I've pottered very gently (leg is getting a lot better) and on the whole it could be worse.
I've taken some time to browse reddit.com, which was fun. There's a tab at the top which will take you to random subreddits, different topics from a very diverse range of subjects. I've dipped into a few and subscribed to a decluttering sub and a funny cat sub amongst others. However if you do try to run through a selection of random boards, I strongly suggest that you wait until you are not at work and do not do so where children or those of a delicate nature can see the screen.
Some of them I didn't understand at all. There's one that's dedicated to the different types of socks or stockings in anime. I'm not linking to it. It's quite disturbing and you'll have to take it on trust. I'll link to cute pictures instead.
I've also started browsing eBay for clothes for bear for next winter. I'm hoping that bear doesn't shoot up too much, and that if I stick to the likely age range then I'll do okay. I'm trying to catch the sellers who are clearing out winter wardrobes, but I may have left it too late. It's always good to buy things off season if they are a little less expensive, and second hand children's clothes are a reasonable target. Salt and grit is also less expensive in the summer - if you can find it.
This is not fresh advice. I read about buying out of season in a book on Medieval Social History. Housewives in the fourteenth century were advised to order the salt fish so necessary for Lent in early Spring and to order it early, some recommending that it was bought in well before November. The fish must have been very well salted!
