Morning, everyone. It's another very early start to the day but I've learned to go with the flow and take it as it comes. With my relaxed lifestyle nowadays, I can catch up on sleep later, should I need to.
It might be partly because I have a busy morning today but more about that later.
Yesterday went really well and I got loads done - it felt like loads anyway.
First of all, I have finished That Cupboard. Three cheers. I heard back from Natalie who is happy to take certain items but not the tuition/study books so they will go upstairs for now. Maybe, at some point, I can sell them on but, for now, I'm thinking never say never again - I don't think I will be doing any more tuition but . . .
I fired off an email to one of the Foundation Stage teachers because I found some coloured card and some A4 paper with Christmas borders which I though they might be able to use and yes, please, came the reply.
Quite a lot of this stationery stuff is from Dad's office and some left from my teaching days, too good to just chuck, so I am very glad it's going to be used.
As I thought, the bottom shelf was just a question of taking stuff out and putting it back again more neatly and I found my good pencil sharpener that I've been looking for for absolutely ages. That's good.
Then I went off for circuits which was as good as ever. It's funny how we are all 'good' at different things. I struggle with the plank as it hurts my wrists a lot but I can do sit ups and related stuff that others struggle with. I keep telling myself I ought to practise the plank at home but I don't enjoy it so - I don't!
After that, I got the washing out of the machine but by then it was clouding over so it went on a rack inside.
Then I went upstairs and sorted out the guest room and, yes, I did put on the Christmas bedding and I also put up some Christmas bunting too and covered the other bed with a tartan throw thingy which makes the room look very festive and warm. It isn't actually warm yet because the radiator is off - must remember to turn it up on Saturday.
So that's another one to cross off my list, isn't it?
Today, I have a busy morning, starting with Groove down at the hall. When that's done, I have to rush back, freshen up, change and be in school for a Governors' thingy, remembering to take two bags of stuff from the cupboard with me. It's by the front door now and I will put it in the car when I leave for Groove.
This afternoon is easier and I will see how I feel - I might have a snooze first thing and then there's ironing and another couple of shelves to tackle. I'm eating that elephant one bite at a time and it is working. Oh, and I have a shopping list to write for tomorrow too.
It feels busy but I'm loving my life at the moment. Hoping you all have a super day too. Stay warm. xx
