Today is my surprise day off. It was a surprise because I didn't ask for it off, and I usually work every weekday. But I asked to come in after 9:30am because of a doctor's appointment and ended up getting the whole day.
My taxi driver asked if I was having a lazy day and the nurse asked if I were gonna treat myself to some shopping. No and no.
I'm treating myself to some cleaning. My house does not even resemble a Lori-house; it's the world's biggest mess. Particularly the kitchen. Granted, I've never been much of a kitchen woman, aside from the cooking part. I hate cleaning kitchens. But anyway, I'm taking a break to blog. I just finished the guest/computer/music/reading/laundry room which was the messiest room in the house. It might as well have just been the junk room. But it's tidy now. Next up is the bedroom, if I can ever drag myself out of the warmth.
Right, heat's still off. But the gas man is coming today (supposedly) so maybe we'll be warm again. And then if we can just get the bathtub fixed, we'll be able to shower again. Stupid old houses.
I bought 4 books for £5 yesterday at Bargain Books. Great Expectations (Charles Dickens), Dubliners (James Joyce), The Secret Garden (Frances Hodgson Burnett), and The Plays of Oscar Wilde (Oscar Wilde). Those, along with Knowing God (J.I. Packer), which I am currently reading, ought to keep a lonely, friendless housewife busy for months to come!
I'm not really that lonely--I'm becoming comfortably friends with dear Debbie. She likes me for some reason. It makes me smile.
And to end on a happy friend note, my bridesmaid and dear friend Devon is coming to visit!! Get that passport, girl, and git yerself over here! The guest/computer/music/reading/laundry/junk room is open...ish.
