One benefit to being woken up at stupid O’Clock by Sophiecat is that you get a lot more done in the day!! I was at my desk by 5.30am this morning finishing off my uni marking and was done by about 7.30am!
I headed out to do my Saturday food shop, I’ve not done a proper food shop for weeks as just couldn’t be arsed so this was really needed as the fridge was empty.
Once home I pottered about a bit waiting for my friend to arrive to do the garden, they are a fountain of knowledge when it comes to plants so told me that lots of the things growing in the garden aren’t weeds but lots of wildflowers, this makes total sense as years ago I sprinkled the whole garden with wildflower seeds but nothing seemed to grow but now that we’ve cleared some beds the wildflowers are flourishing, we also planted some other plants that my friend had grown from seed for me so excited to see what flowers over the coming weeks.
After some lunch we drove to a local nature park to have a walk with their dog, about 1/2 mile before I got to the car park, the engine warning light came on in the car and said that there had been a malfunction, exactly the same thing that happened 2 weeks ago, thankfully when I restarted the car after the walk it was ok until I was about 3 miles from home when it came on again, so, for now, I’m housebound and means that I won’t be able to go swimming tomorrow which I’m pissed off about!
The rest of the day has been about cooking some tea (chilli con Carne) and relaxing on the sofa, I feel shattered at the moment so it’s bedtime soon and for the first time in a very long time I don’t have any client work to do tomorrow so will use it to try to catch up on a few other things or might even just rest!
