Well, if I can’t knit, which is a major bummer, I can still tidy things up.
Today I’ve re-organised my bedroom storage. Had ordered some things to enable that and now my underwear is in excellent order. Re-lined the drawers too with some of the excessive amount of brown wrapping paper from Mother’s house.
Sorted out a new Kindle Fire so that I can download library books and have managed to actually do that and read one. Excellent.
Made an appointment for the cat’s annual vaccination.
Ordered present for upcoming birthday.
Gardener guy came yesterday so the garden looks great.
Ordered some new clothes (always, always cheers me up. How shallow am I.)
Well. Now then. The news, nationally and globally is just so damn depressing.
The UK and lots of other countries seem to be playing Whack-a-Mole with Covid-19.
The US election campaigning is in full swing. Somebody is tweeting rubbish in all capital letters. Racism. Lies.
UK exam results are completely buggered (although our granddaughter did Very Very Well in her GCSEs this year).
I’m really struggling with pain, exhaustion and low mood ( I do know that this is selfish when there’s so much going on, so let’s add guilt to that particular little mix).
Hubby is trying to explain Modern Monetary Theory to me. I sort of get it in a very muddled way but it’s so very different from what I was taught at school 50 years ago. I also worked in a bank for 12 years, and there had to be a debit for every credit, so I’m very confused and fuzzy about it.
So I have decided I’m going to try to stop worrying about stuff I can’t change, and reach out from time to time for some chocolate/painkillers.
Meanwhile my Ab Fab rose is starting to bud like billyo again. Love it so much. It really cheers me up.
