Today has been quite a tidy type of day. I haven’t achieved a lot but I have neatened things up a bit.
One, Julia is now fully vaccinated against Covid. It all went very smoothly, though we were caught in a traffic jam on the way back. The UK seems to be doing reasonably well in getting plenty of people vaccinated. So far she doesn’t seem to be experiencing any side effects, but we will see what happens tomorrow.
Two, the internet grocery order is in. I have just been finalising the last few bits and pieces. I made it a priority this morning, and set an alarm on my phone to make sure I was awake to make a couple of minor adjustments before the deadline. There is always something you remember at the last minute.
Three, I consulted a website about sustainable fish before ordering for this week.
Four, I used the photo from Thinking After Midnight for my biography photo, despite Google’s comments on images that look like that. I’m not going to be the only one that is using a slightly flattering and out of date picture.
Five, I will, after doing this one, have posted three times today, making up for deficiencies in the last week or two.
Six, I have made slight, but discernible, progress in preparing submissions.
Seven, after a good night’s sleep I seem to be regaining a little creativity. Sleep, I think, is the key. I must do more sleeping and less staying up at night.
Eight, I found one of my watches and got a new battery fitted. I am now equipped to re-enter the rat race. This is a shame, because life with no watch is quite relaxing.
Nine, I just remembered that I have completely forgotten to fill up the car and put air in the tyres as planned for today. Ah well, not as tidy as I thought…
Ten, sandwiches are made and overnight oats are maturing in the fridge.
Time for an early bed (see Point 7).
