We have white stuff, less than earlier on, but more forecast to dump on us later and tomorrow.
Up at usual time, awake an hour before the alarm clock. Obviously because I didn’t need to be. Read a bit of my book (luxury), put the wm on, stripped and remade the bed, washed and tidied my hair.
ASB, lots of hugs for you, I don’t have my own chain saw which might be more useful than a hug. I’ll leave that to Kaz. Maybe you, me and YL need to go back on the Flylady Just Say No course. I could definitely do with a refresher.
Wm has just finished, back later x
Dot has dentist at 4 so I need to dash the other 2 back and get her back out.. that should be interesting.. she is a nightmare at dentist.. she has bit her the last twice.
Thank you Honey Bear
hubby has been dragged into doing something for his dad again cos he won’t say no even though he shouldn’t be doing these things because of his back problems grr
ive been round house looking for coat hangers as no one returns them to me and I have all hubbys new shirts and trousers in washer and I like to hang them to dry as then take less ironing which I’ll do next week so don’t get creased in wardrobe before even worn any 😂
DD’s car sorted, uneventful drive to big town, although Mr S scuppered my plans by closing the petrol station. I’ll have to make yet another trip out, maybe next week.
Dropped birthday present off to a friend, ended up having coffee and a chat, which was nice. Did a guilt ridden s&s of the ensuite when I got back. Need to unpack the new sc - finally managed to lay my hands on one to replace the broken one. Same model which is good as the old one lasted years.
the hedge is dead in the middle, it really needs to come down.
pottering about really, but flinging as i go, a bit of reorganising, a shelf cleared in a kitchen cupboard and cleaned. All as a forerunner to cleaning the kitchen
Thank you Honey Bear
I've not done anything useful or productive.. but I did walk to my nail appointment and back and have the school run to do then walk halfway back to take Dot to dentist.. so I will stay at doing nothing until later.. I will need to do dinner, pack ups and the DW.
I fib.. I replaced the empty cardboard tube with a new lo roll and put dirty laundry in the WM's, but they arenn't full yet. I fed cats.. and deluttered an apple and 2 packets of ready salted crisps no one else likes.
Paid stuff done until Monday, lots of tricky stuff going on at the paid stuff and I feel slightly anxious leaving the troops to go it alone but I need to take some holidays.
I have made a very brave decision to get the train into Leeds on Thursday to meet DS who is taking the afternoon off so we can have lunch and a catch up. The thought of negotiating a train journey and an unfamiliar city is making me rather nervous, which is ridiculous, it's only Leeds for goodness sake. Darned anxiety.
I am currently under a blanket with the dog waiting for DH to come home, and hoping he might make a stir fry (DH that is, not the dog). There is flying to do, but it can wait.
