Domestic trivia

Only posting this in an effort to convince myself that I did do a couple of productive things today. Total dullness lurks behind

  • Did a load of washing

  • Went to hang washing out on the line

  • Discovered that washing line is cutting into the bark of the supporting trees

  • Wrestled with knots in washing line for a while

  • Fetched knife from house

  • Removed and re-tied washing line

  • Hung out washing

  • Printed out Blocks 1 & 2 of the fiction writing course for student with dead computer

  • Assembled printouts into an envelope

  • Made lunch for self and G (tinned soup and bread and cheese)

  • Slept for 1½ hours

  • Printed out the story to be submitted to F&SF

  • Spotted that though I had changed the title on the first page, I hadn't changed it in the header

  • Used first printout for file copy for reference

  • Printed second copy of story

  • Checked address of F&SF online

  • Wrote cover letter

  • Put story, cover letter and SAE into large envelope

  • Flu jab has been achieved

    G and I had our flu jabs this morning. They were using the same system as for the covid shots, that is they take over the leisure centre and have…

  • Busy morning

    G wanted to have lunch out at the cafe in Fairbourne. We'd planned to do this a few weeks ago, but the surveying didn't take as long as we thought it…
