The weather is getting a little cooler so it's not so uncomfortable doing work in the garden. Not to mention tidying up the mess made by three boisterous dogs...and daily filling in a large tunnel that Beki has enjoyed digging overnight. I don't think she's trying to escape...if she is, she's digging in the wrong place. She just loves digging. And to be honest, she's very good at it...very precise and neat. If you ever want a hole dug...Beki's your girl. I also need to take the three of them out for more walks...I could do with some more exercise...it's just been far too hot up until now...for me and them.
I have a lot of little jobs to do around the house, which I've also been putting off because of the heat. I made a start yesterday in a small way by pruning my wardrobe...something I always seem to do at this time of year.
I allow myself a certain amount of time on my laptop each day. I'm not really one of those people who sits in front of the screen all day long. I have a Facebook page, but hardly ever use it...it's a good place for getting photos of Billy and my daughter, as I still don't have a camera. But I otherwise I don't really see the appeal. I do have a chuckle sometimes though at the comments people make. My brother recently joined and lasted a couple of hours. I asked him why and he replied "Why would I want to read (so-and-so).... has just scratched their arse... in fact why would (so-and-so) even think anyone would be interested?"
There seems to be an obsession with games and quizzes,which I just don't get. I have on the odd occasion found myself completing one of the quizzes, then asked myself "why am I doing this? There have to be better things to do". And of course there are...so I switch off the laptop and go and do them. And as for the games, they leave me cold. I am not in the least competitive you see. I've always been the same. I don't feel the need to win so I have no desire to take part.
I remember my ex-husband (a county badminton player in his time) once trying to teach me the game. He couldn't understand why I wouldn't run about from one side of the court to the other to reach the shuttlecock. But I didn't see the point...if it doesn't come anywhere near your racquet...why exhaust yourself trying to get to it! No...games are not for me...I'd sooner let my opponent win and get it over with.
Anyway I digress....priorities. I'm assembling my list, and have much to do over the next few weeks, followed by my trip to England on the 25th. So I won't be blogging as much as I normally do for a while. I love blogging, and I enjoy reading so many other wonderful blogs. But whilst my mind is now focussed on real life activities, I find I'm less inspired to write.
I will of course find the time to read other blogs, and if the mood takes me I'll post a few lines on mine.
So I'm off now to enthusiastically make a start on my list!
