Do you ever agree to things in the heat of the moment and later have second thoughts?
I'm sure I committed myself to climbing the three Yorkshire peaks yesterday.
If I'm really quick I can reverse it. I don't mind going on a leisurely walk...even a brisk hike, but I think 3 or 4 hours is my comfort zone limit.
I enjoyed the challenge the girls agreed to yesterday. Serene was chewing over what hairstyle would suit her next...or was it Juli? Jon suggested they put a selection of pictures in a hat and each of them pick one out. They agreed! Should be fun as there are some pretty funky hairstyles there. They may live to regret it, but hey, a bet is a bet... says I!
My challenge today is to remain optimistic about the outstanding jobs at Bel-Air, and sort in order of priority what needs to be achieved this time round. (RB quotes today on optimism helped).
David is going over at the weekend and we need to plan well as he can take things I'll need that I can't take on the plane.
What I'd like to achieve...
All the personal finishing jobs...in the afternoons and evenings (list to follow)
Raking, jet-wash, back-fill and pointing of the stonework at the back (I'll work on this as and when time permits. It's not really essential this year)
Dig out the patio area ( this is a fun activity during breaks)
Guttering and drainage front and back
Build storage area (personal or community)
WHY HAVE THEY PUT MURRAY ON AT 1:00 PM WHEN MOST PEOPLE ARE AT WORK AND CAN'T WATCH IT? AGGGHHH!!!
Here is the second AAAGGHHH!! After being a specialist in my area and being involved with training others, I have just been re-packaged and dragged out of my comfort zone into another area...permanently! Why did I come in this morning? Not happy! Karen and Kirsty are equally disappointed. This is war!
Well, perhaps not war exactly.
I'm watching the Murray game and my nerves are jangling! He was very late starting.
It's tough to call. Fifth set coming up. It's an incredible game.
Wimbledon has never been this late before...thanks to the new roof.
10:25pm and it's still very tight.
It's 10:40 pm and it's all over. Unbelievable!
Murray did it!
