Well, hello, all.
I did not intend to take a small blogging break. It just seemed to happen. The neighbours decided to have all their greenery removed from our boundary, exposing our gardens to one another, so there has been much laughter and over-the-fence chatter going on. Their new fence will be arriving in a week, so I need to get my old dilapidated fridge out and round to the front for removal before that happens.
I use the word "I" loosely here. I will be weak and feeble and call some friends of the strong male variety, of course. It weighs a ton. And then it rained, and got cold. And then I sat and made a list of all the things I wanted to make and when I started on a couple, I sort of over did things a bit again. Sigh. Not to mention the fact that I can't find some fabric I know I have somewhere, and then we had the P60 debacle on Monday. Give me strength.
I lost my tax certificates, (the P60s) which I needed to re-send to the Student Loan people because "you have been randomly selected" blah blah blah etc etc. I called them to remind them that the very place I needed to send them to had already made copies of them. Just send them they said. right. Hmmm.
11 hours, 3 black garbage bags of shredded paper and a full recycling bin later, I found them, in a file behind my filing cabinet, under my desk. Do not ask.
I have never had such an organised desk in my life. It is spectacular. But does not feel like home in a sense. I like piles.
And a lunch with more friends from 39 years ago, a sick friend and the spending review today for the country add up to the rest of my week. Exciting stuff.
I am sure I will think of more scintillating stuff tomorrow. I hope.
