Bank Holiday Monday

Bank Holiday Monday was quiet but productive. It was another solitary day, through choice, and unlike on Sunday I did actually get to spend the day without interruptions. 


In my mind it was supposed to be a lazy day, just reading and doing very little else. In reality, I carried on with sorting another pile of teaching resources (now in the bin), took a few photos (two are included in this post), and then lost a couple of hours working on my family tree.


I'd wanted to print my late partner's family tree because his brother, who I'm visiting next week, wants a copy - the printing part is easy, it's sticking it all together that takes the time! However, I got distracted immediately by a message from one of my DNA matches asking for help in linking up another branch of the family. Two hours later and printing forgotten, we'd managed to sort out another couple of branches of the tree. Once he'd allowed me to access his online tree I realised that he is a cousin who lives locally and who I know - I hadn't recognised him because he uses a nickname on the Ancestry website! All things considered, it was time well spent even though I still have to find the time to sort out the other family tree today.

I'll be teaching this afternoon (only five more sessions at this school after today) and then I have an appointment to see the doctor - not the one I plan to see regularly but the only one I could get an appointment with. I need my repeat prescription renewed so it should be a quick visit.

  1. I kept thinking yesterday was Sunday and I think I will be confused for the rest of the week now. :-)

    1. I never know what day it is! I have to check the day and date every day to work out what I'm supposed to be doing!

  3. Hooray for a day's pootling at will! I must say, I really dislike impromptu visits - they really put me off my stride. People can invite themselves round whenever they like, just as long as they let me know beforehand. Likewise, I would never just land on anyone else's doorstep either.

    1. I'm okay with certain people just dropping in but mostly I like to know when people plan to visit.

  4. Your photos are lovely. It sounds like you were able to quite a few things done; some things take a little longer than we anticipate, though, don't they?
