I got my Omega delivery delivered :)
I had a important email come through.
I have been added to the Shielding list until March 31st!
Only allowed out of the house for medical appointments and exercise.
One of the Solictors dealing with my late dad's house sale, was given the wrong email for me.When she was given the right email address,she wanted some papers about the house. I told her, the younger brother has all those documents: 
As the Whitney Houston's song goes...
I have nothing, no documents concerning the house whatsoever!  

I wrote and published yesterday's blog.
Even had time to do my jukebox of tunes on Twitter :)
I got through to my Doctors after 15 minutes to see about my X-ray results.My Doctor haven't seen them yet.
I got booked in for a blood test.
As I can't have it done at my normal place no more!
I mentioned I was put on the Shielding list and was booked to have the Covid jab next week :)
I tried to watched the programme that is Number 1 on Netflix...
I watched a great film instead.
I enjoyed Tea at 3.
It was coming up to 10 to 4pm when still the Heating Engineer hadn't arrived to service the 15 year old boiler of ours.
I phoned the Council, she says:
 "He turned up on 10am."
 "Funny that", I didn't hear any knock on the door!"I replied.
Trying again for someone to come back again sometime next month.
