Good morning. It is a glorious start to the day, here in the middle of good old Essex. I've given the plants a watering, done some kitchen stuff including making some falafels with leftover chickpeas for lunch and now I am sitting at my desk with the second coffee of the day to enjoy a good bit of social mediating!
I didn't get to the allotment yesterday - Alex stayed around for a while after the interview and by the time he went, I just couldn't be bothered (see what I mean by lazy?). The funeral in the morning was 'good', if you know what I mean, but sad and I think I just wanted some quiet time really.
However, I did get a lot done. I was looking for a wedding card I bought a while back and which seemed to have gone walkabout. I started with the piles of clutter on my desk and when I had sorted that, started to file the necessary away.
As the filing cabinet is getting pretty cluttered, I got some old files out and went through them, realising that there was an awful lot of stuff from several decades ago that could just be shredded/torn up and chucked. So I did and it was most satisfying. I now have several free file inserts and much more space again. Yay!
Then I tackled the ironing. The ironing basket was full and overflowing and now it is empty - well, empty of clothes anyway.
So maybe not so lazy after all, just alternatively occupied. :-)
This morning is a tidy up downstairs day as the lovely Sharon is coming at twelve to do my hair. Then Alex arrived for another interview and soon after that I leave to have my personal training with the lovely Lindsey. I do seem to have a lot of lovely ladies in my life - how lucky am I?
Well, I had better move on. I'm not having my shower until later so as to have wet hair when Sharon arrives but there's still plenty to be done that can happily be done in pjs and dressing gown! And I still haven't found that blessed card which is extremely annoying.
See you all tomorrow - stay safe and enjoy this lovely, sunny, first-day-of-autumn weather. xx
