Spent an hour revising in order to avoid house chores this morning, only to find that within half an hour of starting the onerous stuff A and I had a clean duvet, a reduced stack of paperwork, two wedding outfits and a greatly simplified weekend plan.
We rewarded ourselves with an hour in the garden, and managed to plant lettuce and courgettes, ready soil in the raised beds, clean the greenhouse and train the fan gooseberries (tying them up canes, not teaching them to honk). Well, I rewarded myself by doing all of the above, and successfully making A assist. I think she mostly enjoyed it, and if we can keep the slugs off the courgettes we’ll both be very happy indeed. Now A is making fajitas and I’m about to launch into some long-avoided pharmacology revision. A good day for conquering dreaded tasks.
