Again, it is totally stupid o'clock, I've been up for two hours or so and sleep is not returning. Great start to the day but there's not an awful lot of scheduled stuff so it will be OK.
It was a fairly busy day yesterday.
I realised that I had a huge pile of washing so in the morning I got that started. The weather was shocking so no drying outside, sadly, but it's all done now and today I will tackle the resulting rather big pile of ironing. By this evening, it should all be done and dusted.
No, it's not as bad as this, thank goodness!
I went to my first personal training session in three weeks and it was hard work. I was still feeling bloated and lethargic after the week of penicillin (I think that was the cause) and it is frightening how quickly fitness levels go down. Never mind, I'm back on it now and next week should be easier.
The stitches are now out and it was absolutely no trouble whatsoever. Mr C (dentist) was very pleased with his handiwork and my seemingly excellent powers of healing, not that I can take any credit for that - it is what it is. I now have a date for what should be the very last part of all this so by Christmas I will, fingers crossed, have my new forever smile and can retire the dental plate (cheers). It's taken a long time but we're nearly there now.
And then, at six, the first online governors' meeting started, using Teams. I'd have preferred to use Zoom but there you go. There was something about being online that really focused our minds and I think it was one of the best meetings in a long time. I heard just about everything, there was no 'overchat' and it stayed on point throughout. Despite a heavy agenda, we finished before time - just about unheard of.
We're pretty sure they will take this form for a while to come and I, for one, am very happy that it will. The monitoring 'visits' will also be online meetings. Not totally hands on but as good as it can be right now. Hopefully, at some point next year, schools can become more open communities again, but right now they aren't and shouldn't be so we have to make the best with what we have.
At around eleven today, son Dave is coming over to help me sort out my last remaining little AVC pension thingy that I've been meaning to deal with for ages now. The main trouble is that it has to be done by phone and I can't cope with phone, especially not when money decisions have to be made and I'm not hearing properly. So Dave will do my talking for me and they'd better like it!
I'll be glad when that's sorted; it's been on my mind for a while really.
The only other scheduled thing is Slimming World at five-ish. I'm looking forward to that; it's always nice to see everyone and people are very good at sticking to those distancing rules. I'm on the social team and help to weight people but, most importantly, as soon as the meeting finished, I whizz round with sanitiser in hand, wiping down all the surfaces before the next meeting. It means Jen can focus on any individual queries.
I like feeling useful! :-)
