Friday 3 July 2020


Morning, everyone.  Not a nice day yesterday with quite a lot of rain, some wind and only a little sun after a very promising start.  I'm very much hoping it's a lot better today.

Like a lot of things one dreads and one puts off starting, yesterday's procrastinated thing turned out to be an awful lot easier than I thought it would be.  No, I'm not saying what because you will think me very silly indeed, but it is a great weight off my mind now.

Apart from that, I did two loads of washing that, annoyingly, was still damp by evening so I must find time today to get it ironed and away.  Maybe I can do it first thing, before tuition.

Yes, a bit of tuition is starting again.  Weather permitting, a couple of potential eleven plussers are coming this morning and I will set up a gopak table in the garden, well wiped over and long enough to distance them and me (although they've been in the same 'bubble' at school).  I'm having a few assessment sessions to start with so it may not continue on longer term, but it's nice to feel I am getting back into it a bit.
If it rains, it's off, of course, and they are bring their own pencil cases, etc.

The other main event yesterday was the new Zoom meeting, new because Jennifer has amalgamated the Tuesday meeting with one of the Thursday ones.  It was fun and the time was up all too soon.  Some good news is that real meetings may start again in the medium future, with all sorts of reservations/things in place, etc., all being well.
The Hall in which we meet is so big that distancing will be straightforward, which is good, but nothing is certain with all this, of course.

Today could be busy.
I have the ironing and the more I think about it, the more I would like to get it done early.
Then there's the tuition.  Everything is prepared, I just need to set up the outside space, fingers crossed!
I have to pop quickly to Morrisons because, annoyingly, I am right out of washing up liquid.  Most unlike me as usually I have one open and one spare.
Then it's packing because after lunch I'm off to Dad's so I will miss the cleaners.  The place is pretty tidy though so I won't have much putting away/sorting out to do beforehand.

And that's my day.  Hopefully I will write tomorrow and Sunday but, if I don't, I'll be back.
Have a great day.  xx


  1. Hope you get your list done and have a good weekend

    1. Thanks, Sue. I'm sure I will and the sun is shining too. You too.

  2. I hope the weather is kind to you and you can restart the tuition sessions. Have a lovely, relaxing weekend with your Dad.

    1. The tuition is done and dusted. So nice to get back to it again. I must consider doing it outside more often when the weather permits.
      Looking forward to seeing Dad again too. :-)

  3. I hope you get your list completed so you can have a restful and fun weekend.

    God Bless.
