Morning. So far have been in a mediocre/mildly depressed mood. I did nothing all day/night yesterday, and I think it made me groggy. Then I woke up early in the morning today with a nightmare and went back to sleep, waking up late. I dont know why when I set my alarm for early, things like that happen. Anyway, moving right along ...

Good morning everyone, it's the start of the week so I intend (intend) to get off to a good start and keep the impetus up over the week: plan something for each day and have a schedule. In fact google calendar emailed me an 'agenda' for the day (a feature I hadn't tried before) and lo and behold, there was a really important reminder of a favour I'd promised a friend that I probably would have completely forgotten! So that was good. :)

I'm also going to do some more volunteering work and get to a meeting, if not at 10am then the other options are 7.30pm or even 9pm.

Right now I have to take the dogs out, and feed them. And when I have time I'm going to advertise my flat to rent it out for a month while I'm away.

Hope everyone has a good day today :)

It's an inside job...
