As Is Now

Today I:

  • Went to work for a few hours even though it was my scheduled day off, (surprise! Chocolate shop in gets-busy-at-Easter shocker!) to make some truffles and bake a banana loaf.
  • Waited as the bus went on an extremely long route going past my house twice, in order to get to Morrison’s to pick up some vital basics (deodorant, tin foil).
  • Stood in shock and awe at the shiny shiny new chiller cabinets in Morrisons, and the thrilling contents therein. Peppers stuffed with cream cheese! A variety of flavoured couscous! Satay chicken on a stick!*
  • Bought a variety of chilled goods.
  • Remembered small tins of tonic for gin.
  • Forgot the deodorant and tin foil.
  • Came home, sat in the garden for three hours reading Joanne Harris’ new novel blueeyedboy.**
  • Dozed off listening to BBC 6Music, and the increasingly aggressive pigeon.
  • Returned to the house to cook tomorrow’s dinner (lamb rogan josh), and tonight’s (pork steaks, new potatoes and homemade coleslaw).
  • Sipped a G&T whilst listening to the News Quiz on Radio 4 and writing this here blog.

A satisfactory day, in its own unexciting way. Hope you’re all enjoying a Great Good Friday.

*I did not buy chicken on a stick. That is not a happy chicken.

**compulsive but underwhelming.
