The best-laid schemes o' mice an' men
Gang aft agley,
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promis'd joy!
And so it was yesterday!
I thought I was going to have a full afternoon and evening yesterday. However, Beth banged her head on a cupboard door on Sunday and ended up at A & E with concussion. She was off work Monday, went back yesterday but felt that she'd need to go home and rest rather than go out which I thought was very sensible. On top of that, tuition cancelled due to bad colds. So I had quite a lazy evening which was nice, just not as nice as it would have been!
Poor old Beth but she is feeling a lot better now. Her head is sore though! I had the grief and she had the pain!
Good morning, everyone. It was a dull, damp and dismal day yesterday and I gather today will be the same so it's nice not to have to spend much time outdoors. Having said that, I really HAVE to do something with my poor old garden which has been thoroughly neglected for
This morning I have to start by tackling the kitchen. To my shame, I didn't load and set off the dishwasher last night so that's the first task. Then I shall organise things for today's meals (I like to get that all sorted good and early) and then I will get washed and dressed before doing tomorrow's planning and checking the old bank balance. There's a bit of washing to do (I like to keep on top of it, if possible) and a bit more bedroom to tidy. Enough small tasks to keep me out of trouble, that's for sure.
This afternoon I am in school to hear reading with Y1. Due to various upheavals this school year, I have not been going in regularly and it's about time I remedied that. Then it's home for tuition and this evening it is the Tom Kerridge programme to look forward to.
So it should be a nice, gentle, positive and productive day, whatever the weather.
