What a busy day that was! After the usual cleaning routine, I spent much of the day out on the allotment, doing something I’ve been wanting to do for ages – emptying, sorting and tidying my shed. With help from Malcolm (thank you so much!) – he put up some bits of wood and hooks that made it possible to stow things tidily – I now have a lovely space where I can sit if I want to (watching the rain, when if finally comes). I also hatched a plan for a table to across one end of the shed, which will be perfect for some potting jobs.
Garden/allotment – see above. I was particularly pleased that everything we used for this was either repurposed or up-cycled. In addition I managed to sow some more seeds, and sorted out which seedlings are ready for planting out/potting on. Both jobs for another day.
Exercise/staying fit – another day when I didn’t manage to fit in going for a walk, but on the other hand there was quite a lot of walking backwards and forwards with a full watering can, and I managed to clock up over 9500 steps, plus another yoga session. Tomorrow the walk will take highest priority (especially as there’a a plant stall at the other end).
Craft/making – I finished a baby jacket, which will be posted off tomorrow to a very special addition to our kind-of-family a very long way away. We had hoped to meet her later this year, but it will be next year at the earliest now, so we will have to make do with photos. Plus the normal relaxing crochet (granny squares) in the evening.
House/home repairs, improvements – does sorting out the shed count? as I make the rules, I guess it does. It is much improved.
Admin – two important jobs jobbed; I’m pleased with that.
Kind deeds/something for others – an older person we’re close to (but not geographically close to in these restricted days) now has no less than three volunteers helping him, as well as a range of kind neighbours. If you’re volunteering by helping others with shopping or errands, or doing them for your neighbours, I hope you realise that as well as helping that individual, you’re also helping those close to them worry less.
Stay sane! – yoga. Towards the end of the day I became crotchety and irritated, for no particularly good reason. Yoga brought me back to myself. Again.
