Lethargy


I felt as rough as a badger’s behind all day yesterday. I don’t know why as I got a reasonable amount of sleep over the weekend but just couldn’t shake off a headache and a general feeling of lethargy. But maybe that was just because it was a Monday. I am counting down to when I am leave, which is less than four weeks to go now...

I did manage to sort out an order for various Christmas presents on Amazon last night. This ended up stretching my brain far too much, as in the end I decided to do it as two separate orders so that the things that could be sent straight away were in one order and the items that would take a bit longer to send were all grouped together. It means I have made a decent in-road into my Christmas shopping and hopefully in a couple of weeks’ time, I won’t have to think about it at all, as it will all be sorted.

The weather is just so miserable at the moment and this also meant that the road flooded outside where I live. I called the council yesterday to ask them (again) if they’ll come out and look at it and the woman sounded *so* concerned by this and said that she’s get someone onto it. It would be good if they sorted it out because it is a real pain getting in and out of where I live when it’s been raining. This is what your life becomes when you’re a home owner...

If you’re looking for a couple of new ways to look at the world, then here you go… First, is a map which tracks where sunlight is in the world, which I find somehow strangely fascinating. Maybe the weather at the moment makes me want to follow the sun. The other is this site, which is where people can submit pictures from around the UK and it gets added to a pictorial map of the UK. Add your own, look at places that you know. See places in a new way.

Random. I love that little picture.

I know what you mean about flooding we have a stream at the bottom of the garden and if it rains cats and dogs the water creeps up the lawn towards the house.. very scarey, swimmimng is not by strong point ...

PS Tell me, what exactly would I have to send you in order to get the coal and the found items from the Tube? Let me know and I'll weigh up my options to see if it's worth my while ;o)

TF - I like that picture too. Perhaps you should start to build an ark?

VC - yes, I really like that map too, there's something about being able to know that there is still sunshine out there... somewhere...

Hmm, as for what you would have to do. Think monkey. Think monkey moving out. Think monkey moving to London to seek fame and fortune - and to do my cleaning. And have my dinner waiting for me when I get home from work...
