Catching up with other things

I finished the last of the marking on Tuesday, had a lazy day yesterday doing not very much, so today I must attack my in-tray and Next Action list. I did go through all my ongoing projects yesterday and updated their To Do lists in the nice little Abstract Spoon program (what the Get Things Done system would call a Vertical Day), so today I need to actually complete some tasks.

So far today I have: stopped the virus checker nagging that it's about to expire by paying for another year; cleared all the empty tin cans off the draining board, squashed them flat and put them in the recycling bag; and put a load of laundry on to wash. (I have also let Aimee in and out through the back door numerous times, though that doesn't really count as work.) The weather is a proper April day: cloudy and windy, but the air is soft and mild and smells of new things growing. Perhaps we'll get a proper spring this year instead of just slamming straight from cold dreary winter into summer?

Right now I'm sitting upstairs in my study with Aimee on my lap, taking a moment to decide what to do next. I think a day of tackling small niggly tasks would be good because that will mean I can cross a lot of things off and I'll feel I've made lots of progress. Tomorrow I will tackle one of the many assignments whose deadlines are looming.

In the meantime, here are a few photos I took yesterday...

I thought this one should be titled I pickeded you a flower, but I'm not sure you deserve it.

Ooo! What have you got there?

Aimee comes to see why I'm sitting on the ground.

  • A productive day

    I did 8 out of the 10 things I had on my To-Do list for today. I was going to spend a little time on one more task, but realised I was feeling tired,…
