2 days into the half term...2 afternoon sleeps...I know! I've definitely retired. My excuse yesterday? The rain and a whizz around in the morning. My excuse today? A sunny walk and then a read of my book. Should I feel decadent or decrepit?
I've now acquired 5 copies of 'Her Fearful Symmetry' by Audrey Nififnfnfiengigniengegger for book club from the library. All free - how good is that? Just have to write a 100 word-review and I think I've signed us up for all sorts of library-related activity but it's worth it to get free books, all at the same time.
4 of the 6 cherry bakewells have already been eaten after our 1st trip to Westonbirt this holiday. We met Granny there and had a very pleasant walk punctuated with my constant and incessant reminders to my children:
- 4 'stop moaning about your ankle, there's nothing wrong with it's
- 3 'chew with your mouth closed's
- 7 'speak properly's
- 204 'leave each other alone's
All good fun. Apparently I always say 'we can make that home' when asking the kids to choose cakes. These are things I have learned to day.
This is my 404th post. How did that happen? I have no idea.
I know that from Monday there are 7 weeks until the end of term. That's, potentially 35 days comprising 6.75 hours of time all to myself (TATM) between the hours of 8.30am and 3.15pm. That, if I can find my calculator is 236.25 waking hours.
I have 8 hours each week committed to knitting and several days out planned at exhibitions near and far but apart from that, I have time on my hands, literally, for the first time in ages.
My mind is rushing with all the possibilities. I could maintain a tidy and hygienic household. I could enhance the productivity on my allotment. I could, in fact, doze for a at least an hour a day as I've proved I'm so capable of doing.
There's so much time available, I am feeling a little overwhelmed. My initial list looks something like this....
- write something
- make something
- move something
- play something
- grow something
We'll see how that goes shall we...if I can stay awake long enough....
