Survival

I survived the first day of this busy week and feel pretty much unscathed. I did forget that it was Monday and failed to get my rubbish out for collection… but apart from that all seems to have gone well. I finished my materials for this afternoon’s training and then made first a gingerbread for Wednesday and followed that up by creating a very nice chicken and mushroom risotto for lunch, then sped off to do my training session. Home just after 6pm, with a list of jobs to do to fix a few gremlins on the web site, then some tea. Since when I have been catching up on reading in readiness for Thursday night’s meeting. And now? Obviously – Blink! I cannot believe that it is half past eight already.

Deeply disappointed by our early return from the Dordogne and buoyed up by slightly cooler weather we effected our plan to go out “little and often” in an attempt to train the cats for living in the new van.
