Wake up at eight o’clock after an eleven hour sleep. Spin is cancelled so do three hours of Pilates Instructor Course theory in bed.
Dad takes me to Mum’s best friend’s house. Am teaching her Pilates now. We use the new small balls and resistance bands. She’s a good pupil. I give her homework and will see her every week now. She’s my first pupil and am pleased with her and with self.
After lunch, walk into the village with Mum. We see Euphorbia:
Am listening to my “Leonard Cohen – a sequenced sampler” playlist made by someone in the Leonard Cohen Facebook group. So thank you to him. It’s 4.47pm and am writing this from my grey chair in the Bookshop. Phone is charging.
Achievements of the Day:
Walk to and from gym this morning and wander about for around ninety minutes catching Pokémon.
Lift some weights at gym.
Unload dishwasher and put away cutlery and crockery.
Hang washing on airer and put away dry clothes from previous wash.
Mum is impressed with the state of the flat when she arrives so must be doing something right.
We take my broken glasses to Vision Express who are able to put my lenses in new frames which is brilliant and will save a lot of trouble and expense.
Find this dress (see attached photo too):
Now just need somewhere to wear it. Maybe someone will hold a suitable function.
Such as a film premiere at my local cinema.
Can’t wear it to The Office or to the gym or Spin or whilst walking dogs.
Someone will have to throw a party.
Preferably during the day. An alcohol-free-child-free-black-tie-lunch-party.
There are a few stragglers anongst friends and family who are not yet engaged or married and maybe will decide to take the plunge.
Anyway: there will at some point be a suitable event for it.
Am drinking green tea and San Pellegrino in the Bookshop whilst I write this.
Had better drink up and walk home and cuddle that fluffy monster.
Happy Friday everyone!
*1986. Song by Leonard Cohen. Released as a single and on the Federico Garcia Lorca tribute album Poet In New York (Poeta en Nueva York). The song later appears on the 1988 studio album I’m Your Man in a rearranged version with the addition of violin and Jennifer Warnes’s vocals, both absent from the 1986 version.
