Good morning, everyone. It's quite dull this morning although the Beeb says we may get some sun, it's feeling pretty chilly and it's likely to remain so.
On the plus side, I remembered about the clocks going forward and now our evenings are lighter for longer.
I'm ashamed to admit that I had a bit of a slump yesterday. Suddenly, everything seemed too much effort (what a wimp!) and as the day went on, it got harder and harder to stay motivated. On the plus side, the only thing I didn't do on my list was the outside stuff and the bedroom cupboard and that's not a disaster really.
And now I know what's in my pull out drawer and know that I will only need to shop for fresh and perishable stuff for a little while. That's good.
Today I am really going to work on staying cheerful and busy. Perhaps yesterday was because I had woken up so very early and felt weary all day. Last night I was asleep by nine and woke at a better time. Still early but reasonable and that's without considering the hour forward.
I have Lindsey's PT programme and her short clips, saved on Facebook, and maybe I'll move those strawberries and de-weed the front today too. There's ironing to do and there may be more because I have another load of washing and, if I do the gardening, that's bending and stretching.
Beth and I have planned a video chat this afternoon so I'm really looking forward to that. I've finally heard from Dave and he's fine so that's great. Facebook is always there and I love reading around the blogs, commenting and answering comments in here too. It would be a lot harder without the Internet.
Something in the house:
MUST sort out the bedroom cupboard and, while I did most of the ironing yesterday, there's a bit left for today. I also need to check through my fruit and veg and make sure anything looking a bit wobbly is used up sooner rather than later. Thank goodness for soup.
The socks are going great.
I'm still dithering about which skirt pattern to use - one is cut on the cross so will sit nicely but be a bit more difficult to make while the other is cut straight so will be easier. I think I might do the latter as maybe the pattern on the fabric isn't quite right for the former.
In yesterday's comments, Heather mentioned about planting dried peas to get pea shoots. I might very well give that a go - after all, gardening is creative, right? :-)
Keep smiling, keep shining, everyone. :-)
