My evening

I decided not to go to Zac's but to try and catch up with myself this evening. I planned to do card-writing, and some present wrapping if I had any time left. The best laid plans ...

Husband has moved my card list. I have searched everywhere; I can only assume he has taken it away with him. He will be the least popular person in Hook when he phones me tonight.

Okay, let's not waste time, thinks I, having taken both dining-room and study to bits in my fruitless search; let's wrap presents.

Now this is undeniably pretty but there should be a limit to the amount of stress any one present is allowed to be responsible for. Things weren't helped by George lying on the floor by my feet chewing a stick and occasionally my foot. I ended up sitting at right-angles to the table with my feet up on the chair next to me.

And I'm having a hot flush.

But apart from that, Mrs Lincoln ...

Oh, yes, and after I'd finished using the silver paper, I found the matching tags I'd bought. And I remembered that my card list is on the computer and I could have printed another one off ...

My best laid plans always go astray! Maybe that’s way, in the wisdom of my years, I have decided to expect whatever I do to go off track. That way I’m not frustrated or disappointed—at least not too much.

I do that too, buy bits and bobs and when I finally get around to doing it, I find somethings missing.
Best wishes

This is my calling card or link"Whittereronautism"until blogger comments get themselves sorted out.

Now Liz, just settle down. Take an aspirin, drink plenty of liquids, and get a good night's rest. Tomorrow will be much better...

This sounds like a day in my life. Utter confusion with not one task completed.
But tomorrow is another day Miss Scarlett.

Did you get any more presents wrapped, or just that one?

Amanda said...

That's my next job - wrap the gifts. I usually procrastinate about doing it, but I just might get started soon...

Thank goodness they gift-wrap for you in shops here! You're going to hate me now but I never had any hot flushes during "it"!
