So it’s Friday 10 March and this more relaxed start to the day means that when awake just after 7 am I am not in a classroom, or commuting to a classroom. Instead a cup of tea in bed watching a hare and a squirrel feeding outside in the garden – there’s a great start to the day. So the weather forecast is foggy and I don’t really need to go anywhere today, what should I do?
Yesterday was an adventure as we bought our first ever petrol lawnmower after years of using small to medium flymows. When we got home I did a first cut on the grass areas by the drive and our roundabout. So this morning, up out and more cutting. The fuel ran out about 1/3 of the way into the main lawn. So a trip out to local petrol station and a paper too. On returning I finished the lawn and then trimmed some of the rougher grass areas.
After came coffee and a cleaning task before the mower could be put away. Then I enlisted Charlie’s help (youngest son) to wash down some of the walls in the building I will use as a temporary art studio for Purbeck Arts Week ( PAW2017). I cleaned the windows the other day and transformed them from a green mist to being able to see through. Clearly progress is being made as I start to plan how I will use the building.
Now I am rewarding myself with a lunch break. This afternoon…not decided yet but the freedom to have a choice in my routine is very welcome.
