Re: Life Improvement Workshop

That's nice of you to say that, Luna. The snow can't help the current situation, although I suppose it enforces more isolation. So glad your dog was ok. Do post some white digging, and yes to virtual de-cluttering! I just did some soil digging. Well, not actual digging so much as cutting and twistin...

Re: Life Improvement Workshop

I'd say either 2 or 4, Luna. I am a hoarder too. So was my father (we've still not cleared his rooms (one bedroom and one devoted hoarding room - he had floor to ceiling bookshelves in front of the windows !) I still remember the mental and physical exhaustion when I made myself throw out ten years'...

Re: The To Do List

then the delivery arrived and the aisles began to fill again, blooming like parched dahlias revived by soft rain. Very poetic, Jjjjj :) I am struggling to concentrate today.

Re: The To Do List

Impossible to know how much you need if you don't know how long for. We only have a small freezer.

I made a pie today... and some jam tarts. That's several meals I have cooked in several days. Turning into a housewife at this rate.

Re: The To Do List

Day off today. The CV situation is getting to me mentally and thus physically... Was hoping (had asked earlier in the week) husband would take me out (was thinking RSPB reserve) to get away from it all, and distract, but he won't :( Wish I could drive... Have vaccumed the sitting room amd kitchen an...

While I was waiting to pick him up there was terrible howling and yowling from going on. The ginger tom they were trying to take blood off (and didn't q...

Re: The To Do List

Morning I need to: pick Basil up from the vet's - he's been there since 11.30 yesterday. He's been very poorly indeed. Try not to talk about or read about the coronavirus. Husband will be working from home from Monday (no postive cases - precautionary measure for the entire company.) I should do som...
