Good morning, everyone. There's more sun this morning and the sky is lovely and clear. Great promise for the day to come.
Thank you for your kind comments yesterday. I did, indeed, take care and look after myself and, if sleep is anything to go by, I'm doing OK. On Tuesday evening I went to bed before eight and was straight to sleep. I woke up around six, I think, yesterday, had a sleep in the morning before Beth arrived, had a sleep in the afternoon (about an hour and a half, said Beth), went to bed early again, slept solidly through the night and woke around half six-ish. I haven't slept so well for ages! This morning the throat is much better and there are virtually no aches. Definitely on the mend.
Beth came round yesterday. I helped her sort out the stuff in what was her office in the morning, making decisions about what to keep, what to donate and what to chuck. What's being kept is pretty much collectively owned so we can both go at it - lots of thread and other general haberdashery, some useful lengths of fabric, etc.
Beth posted on Facebook asking if friends were interested in a package of 18" doll clothes and accessories (free) and got plenty of response, so tomorrow she will be sorting that stuff into parcels to send out. The intention was to donate all that side of stock to school fairs but they are just not happening and neither of us are keen on holding on to stuff until they are happening again.
The rubbish is all bagged up and will go into the bin as soon as possible. My bin is almost full and they don't collect until this week so I must keep some space for my own rubbish. Beth's bins are collected on Friday so, hopefully, she will be able to dump most of the bags then. At the moment they are all in the garage!
Also in the garage are (or will be) the donate things. What's left once the doll stuff has been posted out will go to charity shops when they open and, at the moment, it's all in the garage too, or still upstairs. I had flagged and Beth's back was playing up so today, each time I go upstairs, I will come down again with another donation box and get it into the garage. By the end of today, they should all be out of the house.
Today, I intend taking the morning easy. It's such a nice day that I will do some washing and get it pegged on the line and the kitchen is a bit of a mess.
This afternoon, I am meeting Jeff at the allotment (allowed) so he can have a good look at the shed and say what needs repairing and, maybe, how much.
In the evening it is the Slimming World meeting. I'm not going to weigh this week, which is fine and allowed.
So that's me and my day. What does yours look like?
Take care and be safe. xx
