Thursday at Home

After two busy days at the CS, today I'm at home catching up with tasks that need doing.  Yesterday morning at the shop,  the volunteer I was supposed to be working with called to say they couldn't make it, through no fault of their own, so I had to keep the shop closed for two hours until another volunteer arrived.  I didn't mind too much, as I was able to get on with lots of sorting and pricing in the back room, without any interruptions. (Not a great start to the manager's absence though, but it happens sometimes).

Anyway, as soon as the afternoon volunteer arrived, we opened up and had quite a good day anyway.  For once, I stayed until closing at 6pm, so I got to help cash up and close up, which is something I'm less familiar with. I was really tired when I got home at 7.30pm though. 

I was the only one home last night, as OH was out cycling and LB was performing in a play with school, somewhere in North London and not getting home until 10pm ish.  I just made myself a bowl of soup and chilled out, before retiring to the spare bedroom to sort more photos into albums.  (I've still got two more to do and then the physical photos will be all organised.)

Today, I've not got much planned.  I've got the usual dog walk, a Zumba class at the gym at 10.15 and then the rest of the day is mine to do what I want.  I think a bit of a clean of the living room, more photo sorting, some ironing and laundry are the likely activities. Not wildly exciting or anything, but it will feel good when it's all done.  I might even make it out into the garden for a potter, if I get the chance. 

As it's the end of the month, there's no money left to spend, so I am trying to keep things simple and get the house in order, as it costs nothing to do.

I hope you have a great Thursday, whatever you may be doing.


  1. Sometimes, it is nice to just be able to get on with sorting, isn't it!

  2. Keeping things simple is the best way to go.

    Glad you had time to do a good sort.

    God bless.
