Managed to get to the gym this morning which felt good!! I was determined to go as wanted to get some errands run first thing to then get home.
So after the gym I went to the local DIY store to pick up some bathroom sealant as noticed last night that the bath was still leaking.
Then popped into the city centre to pick up some clothes that were being mended. I decided that as I wasn’t going to be long I would park in the free parking bit that allows you to park for 30 minutes for free, so briskly walked to the mending shop to find that the lady had closed for 10 minutes, not what I needed being on the clock for parking, luckily there was a coffee shop open next door so decided that I’d get a quick coffee while I waited as didn’t really want to come back into city centre later on in the day. And as luck might have it, my loyalty card for this coffee shop showed I was due a free coffee!
Drank my coffee quite quickly, collected my mending and made it back to the car with 3 minutes to spare!! Phew…
I then went to get my food shop for the festive break, the shops were a little busier than usual but nothing too manic thankfully, I guess it was still fairly early in the morning and still a couple of days to get in supplies. I was armed with my list and crossed things off it as I went around so I didn’t forget anything! Although when I got home I realised I had missed a couple of things off the list, nothing too important so if I don’t get them it won’t really matter, just be nice to have them.
Got home and then did a bit of work. By lunchtime I had run out of steam so took an extended lunch and chilled for a bit.
Did try to sort the bath out but failed so will be strip washing for a few days now in the downstairs toilet sink, not very glamorous or easy but not many options now this close to Christmas and my usual plumber has finished for the festive break. I’m not that bothered about cleaning this way, it’s as though I’m going anywhere in the next week or so or seeing anyone really. I’ve had it worse over festive periods with boiler breakdowns and no heating and hot water for days on end.
Does feel a bit like a kick in the mouth though but hey ho, life is sent to try us isn’t it.
