It was about 11am before my FIL showed up so I managed to get a nice Sunday morning under my belt, free of hassle and noise. Gail was out the door before 8am to a special photography course on lighting, so I had an excellent breakfast of coffee and bagels with my wee girl while watching a cartoon. Then we got dressed and nipped out to the shops to get some fresh rolls and a newspaper.
Post 11am, and the loud banging had begun, but since I wanted to complete my organising today, it didn’t really affect me too much. Today I want to get everything – absolutely everything – in order, so that at the very latest by tomorrow morning I can start with a clean slate and fresh outlook on everything. Deadlines are important, but I think I’ve placed too many around my neck. Today is about shedding them.
During my morning email check I discovered a wonderful opportunity available at the Glasgow Subway – they are looking for a poet in residence! It’s not something I would be able to do at this stage in my life, but the idea is very exciting nonetheless. Click here for full details.
I sent off three queries for some interesting freelance gigs – my first serious set of queries for over a month.
And of course, I got through a tonne of cleaning and organising. All my drawers and shelves are now totally brand new and up to date, the room is looking good, and even the fish tanks got a spring clean. I threw out lots of garbage that I’d been clinging onto, and found some old photographs going right back to 1977! The only things outstanding are getting all the domestic paperwork up-to-date, as well as my research boxes and hard copy clip files. Other than that, the day went a long way to making me feel much more grounded and positive.
