*yawn* I didn't sleep much last night, because I never do when the moon is full or unusually bright (I sometimes wish it could have a dimming function, just like some lightglobes tongue).

What I should do:

* dishes
* make bed
* exercise (done, but will try to do more)
* a little bit of cleaning / tidying
* wash whites
* buy milk, which I forgot to do yesterday (d'oh!) nono
* paperwork
* wash hair

What I want to do:

* go window shopping
* go to the library


Bonus points if I:

* make chicken stock
* make soup


My head's still in a bit of a muddle right now, so I might start by just walking around the house for 10-15 minutes and doing some random bits of cleaning and tidying. Back soon.

sounds like a good plan!

today i have to

* pack and move my uni stuff 170 miles back home
* eat regulary and not just when i remember
* attempt to sleep at some point, hopefully in the car on the way home from my uni house

It would be nice if i could get some washing up done (no plates left again)
I would like to watch doctor who but it wont happen as we'll probably be traveling back home

Oh, that sounds like hard work. Packing up uni stuff is no fun :-(.

btw, have you seen FlyLady's moving & packing tips? They might help...

Good luck with it all. I've done that job myself, too many times, and know how hard and mentally draining and physically exhausting it can be. And, in this case, emotionally upsetting too, by the sounds of it...

What about a poo-athon? Get sponsors for each bowel motion someone does? You should be able to make a fortune that way...

Me, I'm still in favour of a brown ribbon day.

It's 6.30 here, and I've done all my essentials except for the paperwork, and making my bed (I couldn't because my cat took it over and snarled whenever I tried to remove her :-) ). I've also been window shopping and enjoyed it - well, would have enjoyed it more if it weren't for the crowds - but didn't buy any pjs or anything, as I hoped to do, because I was too tired to try them on. Oh well, at least I know what's in the shops.

Am sitting here drinking herbal tea and mustering the energy for my evening routine.

Still to go:

* make that bed
* 15 minutes dishes / kitchen work
* 15 minutes general tidying

Will you be working at that fete, or just browsing?

I managed to get lucky and have roped in two extra people to help. Hopefully it shouldnt be too bad now although my room is up two flights of seriously narrow stairs!! I'll have a look at the tips, although i'm not planning on taking too mcuh effort with it. So long as it can go in a bag i can get it home and sorted out in more managable chunks once i'm home.

I did manage to sllep more last night than i have in about a week so thats pretty cool. I've eaten 2 bacon butties as well so will probably sit and eat again once i'm at the house then get stuck in. I just hope people wont be shiocked when they see just how bad my room is. Once you get ill, tidiness just kinda goes out of the window!

lol I like it yeah   But how do we verify how many you have actually done smilewinkgrin
Working unfortunately as will ds (in his capacity as a first aider) At least I shouldn't spend much being tied to a stall!! Although I always like the tombola even if I do come away with a tin of something that I will never use!!
Window shopping is the best kind (and I loath trying anything on, especially with those oh so harsh shop lights!)
Sound like you have had a pretty productive day-I wouldn't bother trying to make the bed, you will be crawling into it shortly wink

Ahhh, ok . . .personally love the water but guess the navy influence would carry way over. Somewhat like competitive swimmers! Thanks for explaining . . .I was kinda worried that it could be a medication side effect!

How much time did they factor in for you to shave in the military, Navy? It's such an annoying job and takes ages; I can't imagine how you'd get it done in a draughty boat / ship.

Well thanks to the schick intuition shavers/shaving cream (so I can have a marker/have been experimenting with dove energizing soap for this too) it takes less then 5 minutes (I could do it in less then two when I was in the military), but it is sometimes just hard to stand for that long, especially having to bend.

Mainly I am trying to get back to taking care of myself better.

Would an epilator work better for you, Navy? It's a little hand-held machine that rips hair out at the roots, and you can use it sitting down.
