self-inflicted punishment for Epic Fail. I am smiling because I just had some lemon and blueberry cake
Looking back at last month's Parade of Adventures, I have to admit to not being brilliant at doing the things on my list. I tend to change plans and veer off in unexpected directions, doing everything except the things I planned, that is just me, and part of my irresistible charm, I'm sure you agree. Last month, though,I excelled myself and didn't do even one of the things on my April Parade of Adventures, which were:
- Go out for lunch with the Young Philosopher. We seem to be like ships in the night. He is mostly either working or asleep, I am often ill. Must try harder.
- Make a blanket bag to keep a blanket in for when i am chilly in the car. Scheduled some time with my Mum's sewing machine later this week, though probably only a couple of hours, and I have something else I want to finish first. Maybe I will just put the blanket in a bag I already have, for now.
- Try a few new vegetable dishes. Nope. Cancelled the veg delivery, it was easier.
- Make a cake. Hahahahaha.
- Buy some new jeans. I hate clothes shopping. I also hate not having what I need. Catch-22.
- Do some badly needed decluttering of the loft. The Prof's been ill, I've been ill, we've been busy, we're going away...this month we have to make some space up there. My parents are moving house and some of our stuff, currently living in their loft and shed, needs to come home.
- Write four letters. I wrote one.
Ever hopeful, here is my Parade of Adventures for May
- Take lots of photographs, especially during our few days in Hay-on-Wye later this month.
- Write more. Writing is always last on my list, after such things as laundry and housework. As I am never up to date with those things, I don't often get as far as the writing! I hereby resolve to do even less housework so I can do more writing.
- Force myself to enter the hell that is Lakeside Shopping Centre and purchase a pair of jeans or two.
- Write another letter. Starting small...
That will do. Keeping it simple.
