In The Last Week I Have

18 Nov
  • Photo by Pam RobinsonDisplaying FB_IMG_1479336801999.jpg
  • Given three short poetry readings
  • Hosted my firstborn child, Rarity Boy
  • Made the best fairy cakes I’ve ever baked
  • Made the worst fairy cakes I’ve ever baked
  • Baked!  Who’d have thunk it?
  • Chatted to the Mayor
  • Put a hole in my knee (and my favourite black leggings)
  • Proofread and/or critiqued at least five documents of one sort or another
  • Missed the Supermoon, as expected – Stockport doesn’t do celestial events, being under one continuous cloud blanket since I moved here in 1996
  • Made a roast dinner in a state of mild hysteria
  • Attended two meetings
  • Been unable to buy train tickets on a website because it’s just too hard!
  • Allowed my last born child to patronise me because he knows how to buy train tickets off the internet
  • Felt immense guilt that I haven’t replied to your comments or returned your visits
  • Not been paid for anything on this list
  • Wished I had a penny for every moment of guilt felt because then I could pay someone to reply to your comments and return your visits
  • Found the first photo of me I’ve actually liked since 2003 (banner photo notwithstanding, because that’s of the Hub and I, who I love soooooo much)
  • Considered replacing the Hub, who broke my Tree of War mug, even though he offered to give me his as a replacement; maybe I’ll replace him with his mug…or just bean him with it
  • Put off going in the shower by writing this when I should be getting ready to go out to another meeting

I apologise for the smell

    In the last week you have been very busy lol. Jaime Fraser would have made amends for the mug by now, the Hub should be gluing pieces together.

    we love you anyway, smell or no smell. And I hope your knee recovers better than the leggings obviously did…

    And I will say this, when the Hub breaks something, he uses a hammer, don’t he.

    Deep breaths, Tilly. Think deep, sonorous Stonehenge thoughts.

    In this past week I have….done practically nothing. Partially incapacitated; partially unmotivated, largely just inexplicably inert.

    You’ve done more than me, Tilly. I don’t envy you on your knee, however…

    I’ve just concluded that I am not busy… at all. whoa! Also, I need to go swat my own hubby for that glass he broke 2 years ago and still has not replaced. It was a WINE glass y’all — that said Queen of Everything —- very important detail. Passive aggressive hubby perhaps? 🙂

    It was a busy week! I feel your pain over the broken mug. I had a special mug broken by my hub many years ago and it is only now that I am beginning to get over it. 🙂
