The Week Ahead

1 Oct

Here’s what’s on my calendar for this week:

Monday: Clean the windows; replace nets.

It has to go on my calendar or I simply won’t do it.  If it’s written down, it’s effectively an order given by me to me and I’m scary when I’m annoyed so I have to do it.

Tuesday: Shop for and visit (via bus) friend housebound with broken foot.

She makes the best cheesecakes in the world; I daren’t neglect her.

Wednesday: Day out with friend.

We’re going to Lyme Hall, where THE Pride & Prejudice was filmed.  Expect the lake to fill up with my drool.

Thursday: A.M.: Deliver a writing workshop for charity.

Of course it’s for charity: who in their right mind would pay me?

Thursday: P.M.: Choir

Those cats won’t imitate themselves.

Friday & Saturday are free.

So far.  I need to put in some time on my poetry collection as I’m now a month behind, so maybe I’ll schedule that (Monday refers).

Sunday: Stockport Writers.

I’m chairing.  Hm.  Maybe I can get them to write about their interesting week…

Every Day: Ten minute writing exercise as soon as I wake up.

An October challenge.  This morning’s scribbling made absolutely no sense (what I could read of it).  I may have to change it to ‘Ten minute writing exercise as soon as I’ve had my first cup of tea and washed my face and woken up a bit’.

Every Day: Cook, clean, walk the dogs, nag the Hub.


Today: Think up lame blog post so readers will feel less ignored.

Using my diary to tell you why I’m too busy to blog is inspired, I think.  Expect more of the same.


Where did everyone go…?

    You are indeed busy…I’m just as busy avoiding so many chores which is in the job description of most men. 🙂

    I’ll be in Manchester in 2018 ……. are you putting things on your calendar that far in advance? 😯

    I’m still here! 🙂 It’s always interesting to read what other people have planned for their week. My agenda for next week should include exciting things like cleaning windows but I might find something more exciting (watching the grass grow perhaps) and another week will go by without it being done.

    LOL, if you find Mister Darcy, please have tea with him :). You are far too busy for housecleaning 😉

    my windows and I greet your windows and you. Been repairing and painting windows all summer, Im on the last set now, so you have my sympathy. I take it “nets” are window screens? And this will be the month for swapping screens out, and weatherizing the windows I just repaired. Winter im saving for making curtains. To hell with the dirty dishes, this house needs curtains, I say.

    And absolutely, reading IS part of my day, too. I start with coffee and the latest book, and leave it nearby all day so that at odd moments while Im waiting for something to happen I can keep the glow going. the trick is create many many odd moments.

    Yes, using this time to organize your weekly calendar is the best of multitasking. No theater performances to attend this week?

    Didn’t you have a birthday on Friday? I think I should wish you a happy belated birthday, but usually there is so much birthday fan fare blogging that I don’t have to rely on my sad excuse for a memory…

    You’ve got a full calendar. And thanks for reminding me… I’ve done zero nagging today. Where to start… kids or hubby? 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
