Today has been a topsy turvy day...
I went for a run despite the terrifying possibility of being seen by the occupants of J's school bus just after 8am. I ran for 27 minutes - 6 x 4 minutes, 1 x 3 minutes, all with a minute walk in between. I can now run for the length of a whole song. That's never happened before.
It took me an hour and a half to get to Swindon. Some sort of incident resulted in a tailback all the way to Brinkworth. If I'd had my usual reaction and taken a short cut I would have just about got there in time but no, I didn't trust my instincts and sat in a line of traffic for nearly an hour. Unheard of in these rural parts.
My other windscreen wiper's rubber blade fell off and my water was iced up until I reached Purton. Interesting driving in the low winter sun.
The loo I had to visit as soon as I got to college had lost its flush. Very unpleasant.
I tripped over the gap in the lift.
I carefully tipped my packet of sugar into the bin instead of my coffee.
I got a 2:1 for my first assessement (hurrah!)
I couldn't find a bank statement I need. I found the online username and password so that I can retrieve it. One of the finest uses of technology I can think of.
I put a chicken in the oven to roast after supper so that it would be cooked ready to make some chicken pie for supper tomorrow. I left it in there for three and a half hours whilst trying to meet a deadline. It looks a little sunburnt and is not as moist as it might be but with a bit of stock it will be fine (we hope).
So, a topsy turvy kind of day but not bad for the, allegedly, most depressing day of the year.
