The washing machine is on, the windows are open, the kettle has just boiled and there are piles of stuff in different places around the house. I am, for the first time in ages, alone and able to get on with anything or nothing.
There's a bonus £8 for the savings pot as the window cleaner didn't come last month. I have been around collecting up the small coins that have scattered themselves around the house.
As I bought a new pair of shoes I have added things to the charity bag, these are things I've been keeping for assorted reasons, none of the reasons involved me liking or wearing the items. There's a long glittery tunic that I thought would be useful for festive evenings at the pub or visiting people. I have had it since 2014 and wore it once when we went to the theatre and I could hardly concentrate on the play as it was so prickly.
The other things are a really unflattering t-shirt that I kept for layering, it doesn't matter how many layers I put on, it still makes me look weird. The other two things are the Boden skirts I bought from the charity shop. In nearly two years I have worn one of them twice, and that's because I forced myself to wear it, the other hasn't been on my body since the day I bought it.
I'm trying to decide what, if anything, to do on my birthday.
I am drinking tea, lots of tea.
