After a rather indolent (but enjoyable) few days, finally I woke up this morning with some motivation – hooray!
So I’ve had a rather productive morning: a trip to the library to pick up a couple of books I’d ordered, a Tesco shop, washing, ironing, shoe polishing, hoovering and general tidying. I’m finally grinding to a halt, but the house is looking far more shipshape than it has done for a while.
I took lots of photos of my Christmas decorations, and planned to put them into a blog post, but they’ve come out dreadfully, can’t seem to get any decent ones at all, so I’ve given up on that idea!
We had the first of two Christmas parties for Ashley’s work on Thursday – a meal out at the local pub, followed by cocktails at our house. I woke up feeling VERY delicate yesterday, and hence the day was a bit of a write-off – I didn’t feel better until around 4 pm!
My car has been in for a service and MOT this week, and needed two new tyres. It appears they’ve changed the wrong tyres (twice – don’t ask!), and I’ve just had a blazing row with them on the telephone. SO inefficient. And the bill came to £1,500, so it wasn’t cheap. Bunch of idiots. Grrrr!!
Have been thinking about the year gone past (so quickly – where does the time go?), and the year to come. Further thoughts to come in due course, as well as a review of my year’s reading, similar to the one I did last year.
It was minus 4 degrees when I was out this morning, and at the moment, the thought of tomorrow morning’s car boot sale is very unappealing. I’ll see how I feel later, but I may very well not set foot outside the door first thing tomorrow morning.
