Hello everyone! And “everyone” is slightly more today as I now have twenty followers as well as all the people who read on Facebook. It’s lovely to have you all on board so let’s go and sail this blog-ship across the ocean of today.
I awoke to find my Father painting the skirting boards of the living room as these are the only things that needed work done before the room is perfect. This does however mean that I shall have to help move the rest of the furniture back into the room tomorrow. I hate doing this and not because of the physical effort but because of the worry I will drop the piece of furniture and damage it or the floor.
Now there aren’t workmen making the route across the house precarious I was able to complete the tasks on the “to do” list that my mum created for me and stuck to the fridge door. The first of these was to clear weed from the pond. This is something I have had to do on a continuous basis since we put the pond in and it seems to take only a few weeks for all the weed to build back up again. The second task was to throw away the dead plants on my window sill. I’ve been rubbish at watering them lately and so all but a few of the cacti have perished. One of the plants I had to throw away has actually been sat there for ten years. The things that little plant has witnessed over that time: blood, sweat, tears, romance and heartbreak. Despite only being a plant I’m sad I have to part with it but it’s my fault for not watering the thing.
My list has now been added too and contains “clean floor” and “move furniture” at this precise moment. What fun. My mother accused me of being lazy today and I couldn’t help but feel offended. I’m not lazy, I just don’t have anything to do. If I could find places to go and people to go with then I would certainly go with them and do stuff. I am not being lazy I am just lonely and have nothing to do. However sitting around the house is making me rather unfit, possibly the worst I have ever been, and I really need to do something about this. So starting tomorrow I am going to attempt to make an effort to get fitter, mostly by going to the gym. It will be somewhere to go if nothing else which I need for empty days like today.
This evening it was time for me to help my dad run another quiz to raise money for a charity. The charity today was the one which my mother works for and was held in the back room of a small pub. The start was delayed due to the late arrival of the food with perhaps the worst curry I have ever had- though still edible. The quiz itself was rather successful as usual, with by amazing marking and adding up scores being particularly important. There was only a point in it and everyone rather enjoyed themselves. I won a months free membership at Fitness First which is pretty pointless seeing as though I’m already a member of David Lloyd so we’ll have to pass that on some how. I could have won a bottle of wine if it hadn’t been for the organisers sudden change of mind of what the prize was.
Tomorrow I shall be moving furniture around and have a badminton lesson where my coach is trying to improve my every decreasing fitness. See you then!
