An exciting day today – I walked all the way to the library, all by myself! I didn’t quite stretch to carrying the enormous pile of books you can see there all the way home again (thank goodness for buses), but I did feel rather pleased with myself nevertheless.
In fact, I got a bit overenthusiastic at the thought of so much activity, and started sweeping the floor, and washing the dishes, and then decided it was high time I Sat Down and Did Nothing, as I had a friend arriving in 45 minutes, and wanted to be fit to talk to him.
So I put a daft film on, and painted my nails a rather fetching shade of teal, which just matches my mug nicely. And, of course, sticky nails meant I couldn’t have done anything if I’d have wanted to.
Sometimes you just have to make yourself sit still.
