I have shredded a big pile of papers (including some very early stories that I do not want anyone else seeing), tidied the upstairs sitting room somewhat and also finally put down the rubber strips that I bought to protect the computer network cables where they cross the doorways. Now there's job that I'd been putting off for months and it only actually took a few minutes!
