Is it me?
Is it me or does time seem to have speeded up? Month after month seem to pass very quickly. I used to find myself wishing for the end of the month (mainly due to having spent up somewhere in the middle), but now the months seem to come to an end before I'm actually ready for them.
There's been the usual busyness at the CS this week. I went in an extra morning on Friday, but left by 3pm, as I was going out last night to the house of a friend from the gym, who was cooking supper for a few of us. We had a lovely evening.
It was probably the first time I've been out on my own on an evening for a long time. OH came to pick me up, so that I could have a drink and not have to negotiate public transport at a late hour, which was good of him.
On Thursday, I had to go to a meeting at the school about the new GCSE's. Everything is changing again of course and as LB is picking her options early next year, we needed the relevant information.
I was also contacted by the allotment society this week, to say a smaller plot on the site I was hoping for is definitely available and I have arranged to meet a rep there on Monday morning to check out the plot, site, etc. and make a decision as to whether I want it, which is quite exciting.
I made a start on getting some of my Autumn/Winter clothing out and putting away some summer clothes and shoes. I left the big chunky sweaters packed away for now, as it isn't cold enough to get them out yet and they take up a lot of room in the wardrobe. A couple more things made their way in to the donation pile.
I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix the other night called From Fat to Finish Line, about a group of people in the US who between them had lost 1200lbs (partly due to taking up running) and were together, as a team, running a 36 leg race from Miami to Key West to celebrate their weight loss. It was quite inspiring.
Finally, after a quiet couple of weeks, things picked up on the eBay front as the month drew to a close and a few parcels were hastily posted off, which was very satisfying.
In all a pretty good week.
This weekend, we've got nothing in particular planned. I'll probably watch Gardener's World on catch up and if the rain stops and it drys up, do some tidying around the garden in time for my sister's visit. (Just over a week to go - getting very excited!)
How was your week?
