Not an awful lot has been happening around here recently, although I do have a guy phoning me about doing some work for a farm scale greenhouse gas calculator at 2pm so *fingers crossed* that will happen.
Things happened as planned following my last post - Eurovision was fun, birthday also (although slightly marred by the Royal Mail depot, who decided not to bother providing proper cover while our regular postman was on holiday, meaning some of my parcels took 9 days
to arrive 1st class!), and I've posted about the re-enacters at Edzell Castle and Potfest over on my ceramics blog
Last week I had an annoying migraine, which didn't shift properly for days and left me rather out of sorts, but the weekend just gone was good. The weather was glorious and on Saturday, the Boy and I headed out to Arbroath and walked along the Seaton Cliffs towards Auchmithie, although we didn't make it the whole way because we had to get back in plenty of time for the DAFTAs (annual Roleplaying Society Awards Dinner), which was good fun. On Sunday, we headed over to Halliburton and walked around a forest park on the Angus/Perth & Kinross border, which was very pleasant, although a miscalculation involved having to walk about 2 miles back to the car park along the main road was rather less pleasant.
On Monday, I spent a chunk of the day reading Living with Honour: A Pagan Ethics
by Emma Restall Orr, which was interesting
; ( discussion and mini-rant )
And then I went running, and yesterday was swimming; I'm on an exercise kick at the moment because I need the endorphins, I want to be much fitter, and also all my summer dresses and several of my tops are too tight across the rib cage where I have acquired flab, and I don't want to have to buy something new to wear for this summer's crop of weddings, when I already have several lovely frocks I have hardly worn. This may have to involve stomach exercises though, which I'm not very taken with...
Plans for the next few weeks involve hopefully some work, job hunting, and lots of flat wrangling - bought the paint for the bathroom woodwork yesterday so need to sand it all down in preparation for the undercoat.
