Ennui time again

I’ve had a day off today and rather than that miserable feeling I had the last time, I’ve deliberately done lots today. I went to B&Q to pick up the last bits I need for my self-torture/ tendon stretching device. Whilst there I picked up a cute three-pack of cactus, then re-potted my cactus bowl when I got home. I made a display of flowers from the garden (in a large glass. It challenged the contemporary aesthetic. So much so, Wendy immediately re-arranged it into a vase. Luddite!

Quite aside from making it a double whammy of damage on her lungs, there would be the very real danger of her exploding.) Then I thought I might as well hoover upstairs, then I carried on and did the stairs, then the front room rug. Then I finished off with one off those floor wipe jobbies doing the kitchen and around the front room rug. Then I worked out for an hour, practising my kicks with the one kilo ankle weights on. I also managed to fit in an end to the first part of my latest stab at a story, go the chippy (Friday, law and all) have a shower, watch Gardeners World and two episodes of Chuck. So it’s been quite a busy, and fairly productive day.   Have to be up in five and a half hours so I’d better get to bed. At least I don’t have to take any more driving tests! Yay! Buck.
