  • Feeling:¬†Bit restless
  • Listening to:¬†Perfect (Ed Sheeran)
  • Watching: Gemini Man

In a bit of an odd mood today, especially this evening – just feeling a bit restless with my thoughts flitting around and not able to settle. It probably not that surprising given the state of the world right now, but after a high yesterday I feel a bit down today.

We had an order in for flour, sugar, oats and various goodies from Haddie and Trilby so the first job of the day was to pick those up.

D had decided to take the day off, so she was able to spend time with the kids today. B had some school work to do, but once F had done a session with Mrs C she was free for the rest of the day.

I was stumbled from one work call to another today, but overall it wasn’t a bad day for work, and in between calls I’ve been working on some focaccia which I hope will be ready for baking first thing tomorrow morning.

We played Maponimoes (thank you C) before tea (slightly mixed success – I won and managed to upset both the kids in the process!) – but the game itself is a really nice mixture of simple rules and strategic play and definitely recommended. Once the kids were in bed this evening D and I watched Gemini Man – a disappointing Ang Lee / Will Smith film – but mindless enough to take my mind off things which was the point.

Tomorrow morning N and C are going to come round for a socially-distanced visit – really looking forward to it (although bit worried about it raining as we don’t really have any shelter in the garden).
