    Morning all

    Quiet here, hoping everyone is ok.
    Later start for me today, I did not sleep at all well last night and feel shattered... but at least the sun is shining at the moment!
    Just having tea and breakfast and then will make a start on the dailies. WM is swishing but that’s all I’ve managed so far.

    Have a good day all x

    Morning all.
    Meh day yesterday. I’m hoping for a better one today.
    One cs bag has left the house this morning, to be followed shortly by a box of books.
    DD’s bed has been changed as she is out all day at her new 6th form.
    WM has run a quick load through but there are still 2 piles waiting in the floor and a full binload. I’ll get another load through after work. QHI done earlier this morning.
    15 minutes before I have to leave so I guess that I can S&S the bathroom.
    Hope the migraine vanished Iona.
    Have a good day all.

    Well, there I was, just about to step into the shower [image censored :eek:], when I looked up and spotted that the screws in both the rollers on the top of one of the sliding doors were very loose and the whole thing could fall on me at any moment. Grabbed dressing gown, raced downstairs for screwdriver and small stepladder, raced back up and spent the next half hour removing the door, tightening the screws, cleaning the bits of the rails that I can't normally reach, and putting the door back, then repeating on the other side. All is now safe, and the doors shut properly - result! :D

    Kitchen S&S'd, bathroom will be done when DH has finished in there.

    To do today:
    - umpteen phonecalls
    - about 60 thank-you letters
    - 14 congratulations cards for college friends as they graduate
    - post office and corner shop
    - create an application form
    - mow lawn and trim edges

    I had a troublesome tooth drilled yesterday for root canal treatment. This evening I walked Layla and felt a bit faint when I got close to home, so I staggered the last 400 yards or so home, ate something to keep me going then finished off a small handful of leftover vegetable crisps we had left over. The tooth has just disintegrated. *sigh*

    I really need to vacuum the stairs this evening, so I'm going to have to will myself to do that and then cook supper and all I want to do is just stop.
    In the end, only kindness matters.

    Morning all.
    Wm loaded for when DH gets home at lunchtime with a 2nd load queuing so that he doesn’t get bored ;). HHI just done to make space for the next load.
    I managed to dust through yesterday but didn’t make the vacuum cleaning as DD and I went out to wander the late night shops. It was nice to spend some time with her even if it did mean she came home with new ( but in the outlet sale) clothes.
    Full day at work today. Would rather be in the garden in the sun but at least it is Friday.
    Have a lovely day everyone.
