Me on Monday is hoping to make a start on clearing all the bitty tasks on the to-do list as well as sort out my 'tools' photos, finish off a couple of admin jobs, and drop some things round to family.
We're promised some rain at midday so I'll do the outdoor things first and, depending on how long they take, will hopefully fit in a walk along the towpath as well. If not, it'll be a session on the exercise bike.
Then elevenses, followed by admin duties - one horrible bit to do with pension and tax, but the rest is easy enough. I have a diary reminder to contact the auction house and reclamation yard as they should be resuming work this week, some filing, and an insurance renewal to deal with. I also need to print the new music for tonight's choir practice and edit my 'tools' photos.
The afternoon is set aside for a few more decluttering related tasks. I'm slowly working through the music room, setting aside all of the music books I no longer want, i.e. the ones I used for teaching. I've done this before but wasn't as ruthless as I needed to be, so this time I'm making more sensible decisions. I will pass them to Oxfam (charity shop) when I've completed the sorting as their local shop will pass donations on to their specialist music centres. Unfortunately the local shop is still closed but at least I will be ready when they reopen. I cleared out a load of clothes yesterday, all too big now, so am keeping my fingers crossed that there will be a kerbside charity collection before Christmas. For now, they're piled up on the spare bed which isn't really a problem as I won't be having visitors any time soon, but I would like them out of the way so will bag them up in readiness.
The majority of the evening will be taken up with choir practice, which I'm really looking forward to as we are repeating some of our favourites from last Christmas. Then, it's bubble bath time and reading in bed to finish off what I'm hoping will be a productive day.
