Wow, it’s hard to believe I could get any more unproductive than I was during March and April.
March started well. We celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary with a weekend in London. We started with afternoon tea at our hotel
I have to say, I’m rather boring and prefer my sandwiches to be made from normal bread. Spinach or mango bread would not be my first choices.
We followed that with a lovely walk around Westfields shopping centre. My husband’s gift to me was following me around while I shopped, although he was disappointed nothing in the Village caught my eye. A reminder of why I married him, dear Reader.
And then it all seemed to zoom by, perhaps because the schools tried to fit in hundreds of end of term activities in a couple of weeks.
In March, I finally found an organisational system for my pantry that worked! Unfortunately the only solution was to set up a completely new system, effectively throwing money at the problem.
And actually, I’m giving myself a pass for April. We spent most of the Easter holidays at Avalon. The unexpected glorious weather even tempted my teenage son outside.
I did organise our understairs closet while I was there. (Video here). And I discovered the joys of shopping in Swindon.
If you follow my stationery blog, stationerybydefault, you’ll see most of my haul.
I turned another year old and a couple of days later I had implantable contact lens surgery on my left eye, followed a week later by surgery on my right eye.
May isn’t looking like it will be any more productive, mainly because I’m going through Planner Pandemonium. But we’ll see.
