I feel just a tiny bit overburdened at the moment. We both had appointments at the dentist this morning - I was fine, but it still cost £50...the Sage was told that a crown is on its last legs and should be replaced, which is rather more money. However, money, poof, it's time that matters, isn't it?
I looked after the children this afternoon, as Dilly had an appointment. They were lovely as always, though I did suddenly find myself in need of a nap. Squiffany fell asleep too and Pugsley (I had taken the precaution of switching on CBeebies - yes, Bad Granny) was quite happy and seemed to find us quite amusing.
My friend R, whose wedding in June I have agreed to play at, came at 5 to talk about music. I don't really do weddings, too stressful - she doesn't want traditional wedding music, so I've said I'll have a look and a think. The hymns are fine, and I'll play a couple on the organ and a couple on the clarinet. For the rest, I'm thinking one rousing, one gentle and one with a bit of swing and pace, so that they can dance down the aisle on the way out. I have until June.
I am involved with PCC stuff. The AGM is only 2 days after I arrive home from holiday - I'm leaving in 2 weeks. There's stuff to sort out. I've just arranged a Friday morning meeting to sort it out.
I've school stuff to do. It's well into the second week of the holidays. I need to get on with it.
Nadfas business. No, I haven't booked the hotel in Liverpool yet. I've a committee meeting next week, and I've three people to contact before that and Stuff to do as well.
I suddenly remembered that I hadn't renewed the TV licence. I couldn't find the reminder letter, but at least I had a licence from a couple of years back so had the number so could do it online. Yes, darlings, I've achieved something today. I remembered it too, albeit slightly late.
A bottle of bubbles was cracked in honour of Al's birthday - we also played Musical Bumps, Musical Statues and Ring-a-ring-of roses. "Party bags?" enquired Squiffany. Grannies rustle something up at no notice at all.
Ro suggested a takeaway. Oh, yes. And another bottle.
