This is my first blog ever anywhere, so here goes!
I awake in the morning (1am,2am 3-30 etc lol!) about 8am and plan in my head what I'd LIKE to acheive for today.
Depending on the weather (wet again!) I would enjoy doing a bit of gardening, nothing to hard, just a bit of weeding & planting out the clematis that arrived last week, along with the hundred or so free bulbs that came with them.
The kitchen needs clearing up after last nights home cooked meal.
I really should go into work for a couple of hours at least, & catch up on the paperwork, before my desk gets completely buried.
My lovely dog needs a walk & run off the lead, so I must drive to the place & have my daily P.R.T.P (Plod Round The Park!)
The washing is up to date, but the mountain of ironing just gets higher by the day, I really must tackle that too.......
The sofa's cushions need plumping up, (yes I slept downstairs again, didn't have the energy to go to bed!)
The dog's hairs need vacuming up & the dust needs moving about.
That should do for now I think. Then I TRY to get up.........
The aches, pain, stiffness & weariness hits me like a BRICK!
What was I thinking! The above will take me a month of sundays!
I've managed the PRTP, it was nice to get out in the fresh air, & for the first time this week not get caught in the rain. Everywhere is fresh & green,(& boggy!) The sun was out & the birds singing, my retriever loves the streams that were just dry ditches last week, much more fun now!
I did need to sit on the wet bench 1/2 way round for a rest, but that's OK, I'll allow myself that. Not quite so keen on the feeling round my rear end that I haven't had since I was a small child! Yuek!!! Must wear a longer coat next time.
Seeing my dog run free gives me immense pleasure, & the warmth of the sun on my face gives me a glad to be alive feeling.
Not so good is the odour of "Damp Dog" that fills the car on the way home! Poooh!
Have managed the cushions, unload/load the dishwasher, few items washed up by hand, ate lunch at 2-30. prepare dinner for three for tonight with a few sit downs inbetween, & as I said above, another day nearly over!
Maybe I'll be realistic with my list for tomorrow..........just maybe!
PS for those of you who wondered why I chose the shadow as my name, It's because I feel a shadow of the person I used to be!
