A few random things

This morning I did an ironing session -- enlivened by listening to the little personal FM radio -- and got rid of the last basket of clean dry clothes that had been cluttering up the conservatory since I don't know when. (I'd already had a couple of mega ironing sessions. The first before I went to the Diana Wynne Jones conference and the second just before our son and his wife arrived to visit.)

I resolve to keep on top of the ironing from now on so the conservatory can be a useful sitting place instead of a laundry dump.

Another recent improvement was that I finally got G to help me move the coffee table down into the conservatory. It was a bit too big for the upstairs spare bedroom-cum-sitting room and some time ago I bought a little set of nesting tables to use up there instead.

Due to the water being off, I couldn't begin to tackle the big pile of dirty laundry that has built up while I was trying to clear the backlog of clean stuff. I don't know what is wrong with our water supply at the moment, but this is the third time it's gone off without warning in the past few months. Fortunately I found enough water in bottles (left over from the last time we went out for the day) to clean my teeth and make a few cups of tea and coffee. It did eventually come back on, so I managed another load of washing in the afternoon.

The other task for the morning was to go for a routine mammogram, part of the national breast cancer screening programme. Afterwards I popped into Boots for some vitamins and then treated myself to an ice cream on the way home.

Other than that, I've not really done anything. I fiddled about on-line, responded to some queries from my student, read LJ etc and then went back into town to buy food. I didn't fancy anything cooked, but I've now eaten too much bread and hummus and tzatziki (plus salad) and at least one too many custard doughnuts.

*Sigh*

The diet more appropriate level of food consumption starts tomorrow...
