Geth was out boardgaming today, so I took the opportunity to get lots of stuff done:
- I finished putting all the stuff I need to scan and shred over the next few years on the new shelves in the study, so we can access the bedroom again. I also got all the CDs onto shelves. The study’s not UNmessy, but you can at least move through it easily now.
- I got another 4,000 words written on my NaNo novel. I’m up to 44,000 now! Two more days at this rate and I’ll have an officially winning novel, although it’s going to be nowhere near done at 50k and I’m serious about aiming for 120k now.
- I picked up a book I found in the study the other day called Recorder From The Beginning, which was the book my primary school recorder group used to learn the instrument (so I’ve had the book since the start of Primary Three in 1991), and played it all the way through using my tin whistle (well, nearly – it’s all super easy until the last three pages and then it suddenly gets difficult!). I want to learn a new instrument or two soon – hopefully in 2019 – and (badly) playing my old ones is helping me to get motivated.
Looking at the last few weeks, I have actually been really productive, but I’ve not FELT productive because I’ve been procrastinating on all my boring daily tasks like housework and accounting and getting through my various lists of music stuff I want to listen to. Definitely time for a giant to-do list update tonight.
Doctor Who was great tonight! Strictly was not, because I’m really upset that Danny and Amy went out. I’m going to go sulk about it for a week.
