Yesterday was a scratchy day for everyone. It was chilly so gardening didn’t sound fun (though the tulips are nice at the front). There was a stack of ironing to do and I had to set up an iPad for my mum.
Actually the ironing wasn’t so bad – once I had reset the Napster password (which had inexplicably changed) and found a playlist I powered through quite a lot. Ironing quality was, to be objective, distinctly poor to remedial. But I feel this is a good thing as it reduces the incentive for anyone to suggest I take the job on permanently after retiring.
It was the iPad that was the disaster – what a performance it was. I’m sure things like that should be easier, but retrieving the passwords for everything and reloading seemed to take an age. I was like a cat rubbed the wrong way by the time it was done.
I had volunteered to make dinner from leftovers in the fridge and so went to town on that to get rid of the gremlins and was really quite pleased with the results (see recipe in my recipe blog which is at the bottom of the site home page ).
Today it was nicer out but still a bit chilly and again I couldn’t settle somehow. I even tidied the wellies in the porch (this is more of a task than you might imagine as the porch is a repository of every old boot, shoe and slipper anyone has ever posessed (and none can be thrown out)).
Finally I dug out the paints and had a go at a friend’s dog. Still work in progress, but definitely getting there.
I think the moral of the tale is that when I am in a grump (a) I may as well get the odd lousy job done as there’s no good mood to lose and (b) I am much improved for making something.
