Found house quite empty when came back from coffee shop yesterday and found some time later that Mrs Payne had gone out for another walk. Mentioned concern over exercise at her age, and received reply, "cobblers", most rude.
Thankful that no "toe food" on the menu for dinner last night, as I cooked. This altogether more difficult than usual fayre, however came across notion that adding salad to a dish thereby made it healthy. This largely unappreciated as we had soup.
Intend to go back to coffee shop this morning to work, despite terribly rude member of staff yesterday. Didn't mention this to other half and Mrs Payne on account of fearful embarrassment, not to mention giving game away about cake.
