Today is unexpectedly clear, as two of today's four music students have rescheduled.
I'm not complaining! But I will be tomorrow, when I deal with a fairly packed schedule, because that's when they will have rescheduled their lessons. Ho Ho Ho, I should check my diary before I make arrangements.
Thinks are getting done - I have been ordering stuff in anticipation of Christmas. I love ordering presents online or from catalogues; it feels like having a extra presents. When the stuff comes thumping through the letterbox I can have the pleasure of opening and oohing and aahing before wrapping itup and giving it away.
Today's haul was seed packets, and yesterday's was 'The Persephone Biannually' -
a mix of short stories, reviews, news and the catalogue listing of all their books. Absolutely free; I like to get the paper copy so that I can carry it around and read it in odd moments here and there, although you can download it, or read on-line. The website is well worth a browse...
Monty Don was sowing broad beans in pots on Gardener's World the other day. He says to start them off in pots, keep them outside but protect from slugs and snail, and plant them out at the end of November or early December. So that's my plan. I've also sown some cauliflower seeds in pots, and now my 'greenhouse' - this version (I think it came from Argos originally)
I've also got sunflower seedlings in it. I'm not sure what to do with these; they spilled over into a tray and started sprouting when I was refilling a bird feeder last week, and I didn't have the heart to throw them out. Can you over-winter sunflowers? Am I going to end up with 6 foot tall plants in the spare bedroom?
I'm working on my daily step count, which sank to a disappointing number recently. I was even out at 10pm marching up and down the street to get the last 200 before bed.
Today I ought to hoover.... yup. I ought to do that. But then there's always tomorrow...
In case you missed yesterday's post, the October Newsletter is there on the pages in the sidebar of this blog. You won't see them if you are using mobile or simplified view, you have to go to the website. It's there for you to print and post to a friend if you think they would be amused to read the bits and pieces, and would enjoy a letter coming through the post.
