Day 86

We had pizza delivered last night because they were doing a Mothers’ Day Special. We had leftover pizza tonight. Last night we had coleslaw, tonight we had leftover coleslaw with a few extra bits thrown in. At least I made that myself. I can’t help reflecting that my mother would probably be disappointed in my current culinary efforts.

That thought naturally moved on to others of parental disappointment and mortality, leading inevitably to a blog post that was unusable. This is happening too often these days. I need to get the tendency under control because it makes blogging a lot longer if you have to discard alternate posts.

I’ve now ground to a halt and still have 150 words to do. It’s a sign of how dull my life is that I have nothing to offer. The clocks went forward an hour last night, well most of them did. In the morning I will have to reset the car clock, which is always an effort as I don’t remember how to do it because it’ six months since the last time. It’s always the way. It’s the same with computers – I have been able to do some quite complicated stuff at times but once I stop doing it I forget after a few months and am never able to do it again.

I now have 29 words to do, and my 250 target will have been met. I imagine that I will have managed that by the end of this sentence and won’t have had to use a single ounce of effort or idea.

In fact I am way past 250 now and talking of nothing.

I should have been a politician . . .

    You are quite right on the ‘use it or lose it’ front. I knew quite a lot about making websites at one time but I would struggle to recreate the ones that I made now. It is a bit depressing.

    It’s so weird – our mother’s Day isn’t until May. And our daylight savings change was a few weeks back – So similar but so different. But it sounds like we all agree that the change is way more difficult to navigate than on hour should be. I’m always like, “It’s 5:00, so the dog is hungry because she thinks it’s 6;00. Or does she think it’s 4:00?”

      Our Mothers’ Day is based on Mothering Sunday and depends on the date of Easter. If you have trouble with an hour’s change (as do I) you might not like it if I start to talk about the date of Easter . . .

        There are various arguments for and against it. Where I live it doesn’t really matter to me, though I believe when it was originally calculated there was a large saving in candles.

      Thank you. You are clearly a reader with good taste and discernment. 🙂

      As a result of reading your blog I am not only inspired to start planning again, but would like to win the lottery so I can have a Mississippi Riverboat as a houseboat.
