This year has gone so quickly and been 100 years long. However, here we are at the end of July. About this time of year as my birthday approaches, I become aware that while summer isn’t over, it’s coming to an end.
Knowing that and also knowing that at the end of this week the flat will have more people in it for my birthday lunch, I spent a lot of time this week cleaning. For the first half of last week the flat was in chaos with furniture all over the place, but once I got the Cupboard of Doom sorted and things started to go into it, the whole flat got less crowded and much cleaner.
In other news, I finally got my hair cut, so I look more like myself and less like Cousin It. Work was busy last week and isn’t likely to be any less busy as I try to sort things out before I go on leave for a week and my boss goes for two weeks. I’m hoping that August will be chance to crack on with some longer term work and prep for next year.
So this week is going to be about getting through it with a clean flat, a birthday cake and all my work done before the out of office message goes on!
