On Saturday I was expecting to work (at Leyton Orient) so I got up at 6.30, got myself ready and just before I was due to leave, at 8.30 - I got a phone call to say that the game was called off as the pitch was frozen!  You can imagine my disappointment - a whole 'free' day to myself.  Oh well, you just have to make the best of it, don't you?  And, although it was cold, it was bright and sunny, so I borrowed a friend's dog and took her for a long walk.  Saw some  interesting patterns in the ice ...

and made some very long shadows...

We were out longer than I'd intended, as several of the routes I took were flooded and/or frozen.  And we might have got a bit lost.  All right then, I got a bit lost.  I don't think Trixie minded, although I suspect her feet might have been a bit cold at the end of it. 

Today I had one job to do.  I had to clear my sewing room in preparation for the decorator who is coming on Wednesday.  I got as far as taking all the fabric out of the cupboard and piling it up on the sofa in the lounge.  And then I don't quite know what happened, or what I ended up doing but that's as far as it got.  I have sorted out some paper work (totally unconnected with the decorating project) and cleared a pile of magazines (by reading them) and watched back-to-back episodes of Pride and Prejudice (the one with Colin Firth in a wet shirt).  I think I have Adult Attention Deficit Disorder.  Do you think I could have counselling?  Or at least a badge?
Anyway, if you see me on here tomorrow or Tuesday evening, please tell me to go away and clear the room, or I am going to have to get up at about 2am on Wednesday morning.
It'll be nice when it's done.


  1. Sounds par for the course. What do you do at Leyton Orient?

  2. I'll keep tabs on you while I'm on the computer avoiding my coursework.

  3. Of course you tidy magazines by reading them all. Is there another way?

  4. You won't see this because you'll be too busy 'tidying', won't you!
