T is for Today
As in what I’ve done today.
I woke up having not slept as well as I’d expected. I’d been practically falling asleep while getting ready for bed and as I was a bit sore I took doses of both paracetamol and codeine right before bed. Being that codeine can knock me out I’d expected to sleep really well that wasn’t to be. It’s not that I slept badly just not great.
This morning was CAB and I saw two drop in clients (gateway) and then did a full advice appointment. Busiest session I’ve had there in a while and every client was something slightly different. Sometimes it can feel like all you do is the same. I made some phone calls from the bureau which made me remember that I needed to make one or two of my own once I was home. Of course once I was home I had forgotten so I’ll have to do that tomorrow.
I popped in to Soha quickly on the way home to pick some paperwork up that had been left for me but it wasn’t anyone I really knew on the desk so I was in and out without stopping to chat. I then arranged this afternoon to go back in next time I’m passing and pick up a book as they were giving them out for World Book Night on facebook.
As always I then went online while eating my lunch and spent much too long messing around on twitter and the like. So eventually I decided that was ridiculous and I should be in the garden.
I’ve had several books lately that I’ve not quite finished because I’ve been going somewhere (usually on the train) and have started something else so I’d have enough to read in the time. So I grabbed one of those – The Virgin Suicides by Jeffery Eugenides – and sat in the garden and finished that. It was pretty good, not sure why it;s taken me so long to get back to it. It was really hot in the garden and when I finished the book I had to go in and cool down.
I lay on my bed at that point and dozed for an hour or so which was nice. I’m not sure why I’ve been so sleepy this week.
Once I was up I drank a lot of water and then went in my powerchair and back in the garden. I took another of my almost finished books – The Inheritance of Loss by Kiran Desai – and tllted my powerchair back and finished that off. I’m not 100% sure I understood the point of it but it was an interesting read.
Part way through my reading I thought “is that the phone?” and eventually decided it was getting back in the house right as it stopped. It was my parents which really surprised me as they’ve been away and I thought they weren’t getting back until tomorrow. But they were back tonight so we caught up a bit.
Since then I’ve pretty much been on the computer putting off writing this entry and getting distracted from everything I’ve meant to do. But I have sorted out a problem I’ve been having with this blog which is good and it was much easier to sort than I’d anticipated.
And that’s today.
