A slightly gloomy Monday

Today has certainly been as proactive as I hoped – the day job work is continuing to pile in, which is great, and I got a good if slightly too fast recovery run in this morning as well as another chunk of post-Christmas admin catchup done. However, I feel a bit glum this evening, and I think I’ve maybe been in the house by myself a bit too much lately. I’m really looking forward to the adventures and trips away planned for later in the year, but they seem a long way away right now.

On the bright side, my new mobile phone arrived this afternoon. Something new to set up and play with tonight!

Tomorrow is another fairly featureless day, but I do have a few exciting things coming up later in the week.

Basil plant
I’ve started a new habit today of doing one tiny ‘house sorting out’ job every day, as I really don’t have time for big sessions of house stuff at the moment. Today’s job was sorting out the corner of the kitchen windowsill where Basil the basil plant lives – it was taken up with a rusty metal box overflowing with clothes pegs that we don’t really use much since getting our tumble drier. Basil himself is a bit of a lopsided beast (half of his roots were already pretty much dead when I got him), but at least his corner looks nice now.

Today’s earworm playlist:

The ‘mild green Fairy Liquid’ jingle from back in the day
The Midnight – ‘Vampires’
Kylie Minogue – ‘Got To Be Certain’

And a bonus track that Geth was humming earlier:

Del Amitri – ‘Nothing Ever Happens’
