Take that off the burner
Friday, March 05, 2021
The back burner was indeed getting busy Pookie. So, first up, I've decided on the oilcloth. I'm really glad everyone seemed to prefer the Jazz one which really spoke to me. I love jazz and particularly 'blues' music so it is very much me. Yes you were [all] right, pick the one that makes me happy. The jazz one it is. And you know what, I have a huge black framed mirror above my mantle piece so it will fit wonderfully with that. I'll have to get on with the damn paperwork now because as Libelulita * rightly said, it would be a shame for it to be covered over. Of course that may still mean my dancing naked over the burning embers rather than my actually filing it all. Here's a pic. Of the mirror - NOT me dancing naked, I like you all too much to inflict that upon you. Also, you can see the daffs have opened up wonderfully.
I've answered the ex Worker[?] Friend's email as simply as I could. Tried not to leave any obvious questions for him to ask. Treading a fine line here because I have no wish to be dragged back into his games. I don't think he means to gaslight but he does and I have no desire to be back in that orbit. The sad thing is, he thinks he is so incredibly 'woke' and yet, he isn't.
I'm still undecided on the anniversary gift. Quite like the leather bikini and trunks idea - possibly a bit risque from MiL to SiL? I also really liked the album idea but realised I don't have enough time, or the facilities here to pull it together. Banking that one for future use. I'm now torn between the personalised passport covers, or a personalised jigsaw puzzle. I'm thinking I could have a collage one done with pics of their previous holiversaries. I know it's not 'leather' but hell, last year's elephant planters weren't cotton either so I've not exactly stuck to tradition.
As for registering with a GP - I've decided not to decide yet. Which is a perfectly valid decision in itself. I plan on a trial run to the 'bus ride' surgery next week.
I know I said I wasn't going to up my walking commitment from twenty minutes but I have 'tweaked' it. Having walked more than twenty minutes nearly every day for the last couple of weeks or more, I've changed my commitment slightly. So now I've committed to walking a minimum of 20 minutes if I'm in extreme pain, otherwise a minimum of 30 minutes per day. 46 minutes today. Who'd have thunked it just under seven weeks ago when I was struggling to do 15 minutes eh?
*Libelulita - sorry, I've named you twice - are you ready for the superstardom to follow?
