Today, I have a list of things to do, as B is working in Manchester:

  • put together the IKEA furniture we got yesterday so that we have a cupboard for the towels in the bathroom again
  • put up the curtains we got from IKEA yesterday
  • wash the kitchen floor
  • take up my trousers so they don't drag along the ground as I walk
  • put the washing away
  • do some more washing
  • hoover
  • dust the book shelves (I know that Quintin Crisp used to say that if you leave it, dust doesn't get any worse after five years. But we wouldn't actually be able to breath in the lounge if I did {sigh})

Things I am going to do today:

  • write some stuff I've got in my head that needs to come out on to a page
  • watch a weepy movie (yes, Christine, 'Mrs Miniver' makes me cry every time I watch it. And don't even GO down the 'Brief Encounter' route ...)
  • have a(nother) long, hot bath
  • potter in the garden with my bedding plants
  • make vegetable soup

Er, did I mention that we went to IKEA yesterday? B has a theory that whatever one goes there for, one can never leave without spending at least a hundred quid more than one planned to, on kibble; for example, zebedee-things to go in to the top of your wine bottles.

I won't bore you with what we actually bought.

But he was right.

Bang goes the budget we've been putting back to buy decking for the garden ... . But we do have red curtains! And a new duvet cover! And some zebedee-like things to go in the top of our wine bottles! Yay!
