I'm having an at-home day today. I really ache after yesterday's personal training session so want to have an easy day ... a pottering sort of day. I did sort through the Christmas decorations yesterday, well just reorganised the boxes really, so need to put those at the back of the cupboard out of the way. Strangely I didn't find it as emotional this time but maybe that's because I'd already decided before I started that nothing was going to be disposed of right now so I was in a better frame of mind to tackle the job. As it happens I've identified three items that I know I don't want to keep but which I think Little Man will really love ... he is just the right age to enjoy them so I'll take them round at the weekend.
I'll carry on rearranging the cupboards this morning and am expecting a delivery of groceries this afternoon. I also have notification from Royal Mail that they may deliver a parcel to me today ... I'm hoping the vagueness is to do with the strikes and not a new approach to customer service! It should be the dinner service as the pasta dishes arrived yesterday so if it does arrive I'll pack up the old dinner service ready to donate and that'll be another thing done.
My camera has been playing up for a while, just certain functions developing intermittent faults which all seemed to correct themselves so I hadn't bothered to replace it. However, now there are problems with the focusing which so far aren't going away so I will have to decide what I want to do. I won't get rid of this camera as it has so much sentimental value ... the last gift from my late partner ... but it is now too old in terms of technology and has so many functions playing up that it's not really a viable candidate for repair. So I need to decide whether I want to go for another DSLR camera with interchangeable lenses or to opt for one of the new mirrorless ones which have amazing zoom capabilities. It'll be an expense for next year so I have plenty of time to make up my mind and at least I have my phone camera to use in the meantime. I'll have to finance it from sales of unwanted items so this will give me the push I need to get some more things advertised ... hopefully!
