Finding a way CI 2

Thursday 2nd 9.20 am

Just wanted to show up; will post list later. First, shower.

Later: ok, so I did some things, certainly not everything and not (unfortunately) the scary phone calls.

I did more on H plan (still taking far too long), talked with G, replied to DR, went shopping, went to meditation group, made marmalade, did other domestic things.

Feeling so much better and very grateful as I have a new client who has accepted a quote I put in. Smile Some paid work to do at last!

elvira's evening

This evening I will work on preparing for the new garden wall:


  • start dismantling the raised bed ready for the builders done nearly half. I just hope I haven't done my back in!
  • print out the quote and give it to my neighbour
  • email the builder back with suggestion re skip  have reconsidered this idea and decided not to
I will also:
  • do a little more of the  kitchen tidy-up - at least empty the dishwasher and put stuff away I am embarrassed to realise that my kitchen storage capacity is dependent on having a significant proportion of the Stuff at any one time lying around waiting to be washed Embarassed
  • start going to bed 10.30 early!
  • email C with B's phone no.
