The List (2)

First Post of the new day – sort of keeping up with my one and a half posts a day target.

The title was quite easy for this one, and the subject hasn’t stretched me unduly.

Even the photograph wasn’t difficult.

List v2

List v2

Not bad. I’ve made a list, and as the arrow shows, I’ve put the items in order of importance. I’ve done quite a lot of procrastinating too.

This listing thing really does seem to make things easier.

I had better clean out the car next, as they want it empty when they pick it up for repair on Wednesday. I am expecting that I will be getting a ridiculously small courtesy car so watch this space on Wednesday.

I may have to draw another arrow.


Another 30 Minute Post

Once again the evening has been squandered with tea and biscuits and curry and poor quality TV. I regret the waste of time, when I have so many things to do, and I hadn’t planned on such a relaxing evening, but it’s been pleasant enough. The only problem is that I have to write a post in 30 minutes before taking Number Two Son to work.

If that seems familiar I can only apologise. I tried to write earlier but couldn’t find the enthusiasm.

Plans for the coming week include finishing the book I’m reading about William Dampier, reviewing a couple of other books and sending some more haibun off. The theory is that if I keep sending them off I will be forced to keep writing and improving. It seems sensible, but time will tell.

I’m also preparing a section of my collection for sale on eBay. It’s the part of my collection that I accumulated because it was cheap or included in lots with things I actually wanted. As such I really ought to call it my “collection” or my accumulation. When I’ve sold it I’m going to use it to buy more things. That’s the nice thing about collecting – you get to buy things for yourself on a constant basis.

It’s the Numismatic Society meeting on Monday. It’s comforting to get out and meet people with the same sorts of personality defects I have. I say “people”, but I mean middle-aged men. There is only one female member that I know of, and very few people under fifty.

And that’s it. Time’s up. I will now fill out the “Categories and Tags” and post for today. Only three days to go…
