A Quiet Day


Yesterday we were shooting lung cancer survivors – a jolly lot, with wine, and cake, and even a darling puppy! I spent my time running around with a shotgun mike trying to keep up with Q & A, so today I have been hugging the shore, so to speak.

A long phone chat with my friend June in her gorgeous little stone cottage in Abbotsbury,
then a leisurely pedicure (how civilised!), then I decided to strip down the stove and throw everything I could into the dishwasher, mounted my oars over the sofa again since stripping off the drywall, took up a pair of jeans for a neighbour as I am the only one in a five mile radius to have the *special* rust-red ‘jean’ thread, packed four boxes of orders which Stefan kindly posted – thank you Stefan! – then was so elated I finally drilled holes in all my drawers and created the knotted pulls I have been contemplating since I got back from Australia. I am so pleased with them, but still need to finish the wooden top in some different stain – I think.

Of course I had to empty the drawers too, and sort and re-fold everything neatly so I cleared a lot out, including for peace of mind a category ‘I like this but it’s too small’. The Salvation Army bag was still pretty hefty when I got through, and I even have one empty drawer. The luxury!

I feel like eating a block of chocolate for dinner but this probably means I am over-excited. Not a bad state to be in, every once in a while.

    I have to ask. What do you mean by shooting lung cancer survivors…? Other than that you deserve some chocolate for being so productive.
