The day didn't start brilliantly with a car alarm sirening at 3.30am, must confess went straight back to sleep, but John clearly didn't, as he woke me up, at 5.30, when he decided to give up and go downstairs. I debated whether just to lie still and hope to go back to sleep but opted for a cup of tea and 10 minutes with my book - 'Friday Nights' by Joanna Trollope (I've been trying to read it for ages but seem to get pre-occupied with other things like, er - this!!) After dozing off for a couple of hours, finally got up around 8.30 - greeted by grey skies and high humidity - hence the post title.
Why do I feel so guilty when I sit down with my trusted friend lappy, knowing that I really should do the hundred-and-one jobs that need doing around the house. I keep finding myself saying 'I'll just finish this and then I'll get on with...' or 'Won't be a minute...' when I know I'll be a lot longer.
Hence today I have been very good, went to B&Q to choose paint - not that I don't trust John to go on his own but there has to be a project manager doesn't there? Went for Ivory Cream - special offer two 2.5 litre pots for £2o or £25 for one 5 litre pot - bit of a no brainer really! Also brought some alpines to plant where the old patio is quite buried by the new one - fingers crossed that the damn birds don't eat all the sedums like they did last time I planted them.
Once I've worked out how to use it I'll share the results with you!
