Good morning, everyone. It's a stupidly early start to the day for me - a pain because I was so tired yesterday evening that I was hoping for a bit longer in bed this morning but never mind, I'm up and doing and will probably have a bit of a kip later on.
It's mild outside and the forecast is not encouraging - heavy cloud and light winds. More dull and gray, in fact. Small wonder people are starting to put up their Christmas lights, etc - it may be early but it does brighten the gloom no end.
Yesterday was busy.
Seth and team turned up, looked around, went off to pick up what they'd ordered and came back an hour or so later most frustrated as most of the order hadn't actually arrived (typical nowadays!) and also with the attitude of the shops.
They had a few bits and bobs so managed to do some of what I'd asked for. Not the guttering, sadly, but I had a drain with a cover that was a right old trip hazard so now that's flush with the ground, and they have fitted a 'garage defender' so that if anyone does try to lever the door open again, they won't get very far.
They're hoping they can replace the kitchen fan and do the guttering by the weekend but - well, we will see, won't we?
While they were working, I went to circuits. We got extra good value today - one of us was quite late so Lindsey gave us extra at the end. It was a bit of a killer but I felt great afterwards.
After school I set off down the road for tuition which went as well as it usually does, so that was satisfying.
In between times, I carried on working through The List. My desk is now as tidy as it is ever going to be - even the pencil pot (!), the big cupboard to the right of it is also tidy and it's all crossed off.
Today, there is nothing in the diary which feels great. However, there's a couple of loads of washing to do and, as it doesn't stand a chance of drying outside today, the drying rack will be out and earning its space.
Apart from that, I will keep working through The List.
I'd like to look round a couple of garden centres at some point. I've heard that their Christmas displays are very cheering. That will get me out of the house for a while.
Not a very exciting day overall, but it should be pleasant enough. What plans do you have today? xx
