So today I shall be heading down to London for the night, as some friends are having a slightly belated and joint Birthday party. Half of me wants to stay home and chill, whilst the other 3/4 says go, relax and enjoy. It is at times like this I think several things and in truth I don’t know what I want to do, so it is probably better that I go in any case. I will be driving naturally and not because of some Corona virus, it is simply much more practical and a hundred times less complicated than using public transport, which I sometimes think you need a degree to fully comprehend.
Their is one major overriding factor in all of this, my mate needs his business cards. which are sitting in the attic here. Which does mean I am somewhat obliged, the tasty vegetarian meal his Mrs. will probably be cooking is just another factor that tempts me out. All in all it means I have a few hours to burn before doing anything in the way of driving, meaning I can write and study a bit and do those other little things that need doing. Right now however it seems to be more a case of getting motivated into doing stuff, instead of staring aimlessly at the monitor hoping for some kind of revelation, which is not going to happen any time soon.
Let me move forward and be productive for the short time I am here, I think I may go and do a little painting.
Today has been a day for sorting through old writings and that sort of thing it was also a time for getting the printer to work again. The heads needed cleaning, it now makes just as much noise and clatter as it ever did it. It is an old printer and celebrates it’s 9th birthday at the end of July, on the same day as myself.
It was a lucky day today, all my paperwork is kept in lever arch files of a certain stripe and I was fortunate enough to find the last one in the shop today, knocked down in price and end of line, I am a happy bunny and look forward to working through stuff, editing and generally updating things and creating some sense of order about the place.
I really must go get a cardboard box to put the waste paper in to be recycled and sort out this big pile of stuff to be sold. The advantage of doing all this is I get to plant my backside in the comfy office chair and be surrounded by books, yes I am upstairs again in the place I am happiest, especially if I am doing something worthwhile and productive.
This bag of paper rubbish is beginning to grieve my usual good nature and a box shall be forthcoming at the nearest convenience obtaining shall be considered part of my daily exercise outside of the home. It is a windy day today and watching the Nut tree blowing back and forth makes me ask how do the birds and their nests stay in the branches? I think I may have to give the whole thing a trim come Autumn, this will encourage new growth and improve the yield for the next few years.
It’s time I got dressed and made the dinner, I may well write more later.
