View from study (sunny)

Too tired for anything but quzzy things

There are things I want to write about, but today was taken up with a mega decluttering and cleaning of G's study. Perhaps he was infected with a Germanic efficiency and tidiness virus whilst in Austria?

Anyway, the result was about 4 sacks of paper for recycling, at least one sack of rubbish and half a Dyson's worth of dust removed. The room has been vacuumed, dusted and washed. I also binned the curtains and -- fit of domesticity! -- made some new ones from some fabric I happened to have lying around.

The curtain making led to some anxiety on G's part. He'd gone to have a bath but unexpectedly materialised, slightly damp and clad only in a towel, alarmed at the strange chuddle-chuddle-chuddle noise he had heard emanating from downstairs. He thought some domestic appliance had developed a horrible fault. On finding me using the ancient sewing machine, he admitted that this was a reason for the sound that he would never ever have guessed at.

Anyway, the curtains, even though slightly makeshift, look much better than the horrible faded early 80s ones that were there before.

I miss somebody right now.  (I wish I could see the offspring more often.) I don't watch much TV these days.  (Teaching too many evening classes!) I own lots of books.
I wear glasses or contact lenses. × I love to play video games. × I've tried marijuana.
× I've watched porn movies. × I have been the psycho-ex in a past relationship. I believe honesty is usually the best policy.
I curse sometimes. × I have changed a lot mentally over the last year. × I carry my knife/razor everywhere with me.
