For those in the US, Happy Independence Day!

Step Nine in PA:

Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.

Have a great proactive day!

Hypatia's check-in

Enjoy Independence Day! 

Here in the UK it's work as normal.  I was so busy yesterday I hardly got near the computer.  Today I've got some undisturbed report writing time.

  • yesterday's reports  done on time for the first time in ages! 
  • catch-up reports x2
  • job planning
  • clinic
  • today's reports


Wednesday check in

Thanks for the starter Lennon :)

Right, I think my priority this morning is walking the dogs TO the chemist, where they have a special offer on flea treatment: the poor mutts have been plagued and no matter how much stuff I apply they still scratch! Then I have my meeting, then, believe it or not, I need to watch some tv. Research for a focus group I'm doing later.

  • walk dogs
  • buy treatment (remember money-off coupon)
  • get to meeting (rent due)
  • look up tv schedules/reviews of programmes I *would have* watched
  • get to my other focus group (don't have one for ages then two come along at once)
  • in between all this 'tuck in' some decluttering/household chores, eg load washing machine, hoover, put things away
  • and my dogs need a bath (before their flea treatment)

Thanks, Happy 4th of July everyone :)


It's an inside job...
