April has lots of good things in it. At the end of the month, I’m going on holiday, we’re going up to Northumberland again and I get to visit castles and go to Barter books, we will almost certainly go into Newcastle for the day and I’m really looking forward to it. Assuming that April goes as planned, I’ll only work for 13 of its 21 days, which isn’t too terrible at all!

Deep clean. It’s that time anyway but I’d like to do this before I go on holiday so I come back to a clean house and don’t any chores other than unpacking.
BODY AND MIND
Three times a week walk from the station to the office. I confess, I’ve stalled a bit on the walking because I am really scared of pushing it with my foot but the better weather should be just around the corner, although with England ‘better’ is subjective, and three times a week feels doable.
Get to bed before 10pm on schoolnights. This just needs a re-focus to make sure that I’m getting my z’s
