|122/365: yesterday the heavens gifted us some much needed rain|
I want to spend an hour or so this morning faffing about in the garage. The storage shelves were moved to their new positions on Friday and I've reorganised everything that's stored on them - the wooden shelving unit just inside the side door now holds all the gardening odds and ends and the small metal cupboard holds the stuff for the car. Today I want to move all the other items that I'll eventually sell over to the new workbench, partly so that it's all in one place but also to create some space for tomorrow as S is coming round to help take the remaining items to the recycling yard. There are two pieces of furniture which are the problem items for me to deal with as they're too big for my car and too heavy to lift on my own anyway. I've tried advertising them on Freecycle but there's been no interest, the charity shops don't want them and it costs too much to ask the council to collect them, so S will take them to the recycling yard in his car. Then I'll just be left with the remaining pots to sort out so I'm still on target to have the garage sorted out by this weekend.
It's a Bank Holiday but I haven't arranged to do anything special today. I know I should make more effort otherwise every day feels the same now I'm retired, but there wasn't anything on locally that I fancied and the weather hasn't been playing nicely either ... typical Bank Holiday, cold and wet! So after I've had enough in the garage it'll be the usual Italian and piano practices, and then carry on reading - Fair Warning by Michael Connelly. I don't think there's anything on TV that I want to watch so will probably have my nose stuck in a book for the rest of the day!
