One thing I have noticed about being on my own again (apart from still missing the farmer every single day) is how the jobs can pile up and there seems no need to do them. When there were two of us then things like food shopping, washing and ironing (yes, I do still iron) - the mundane jobs, had to be done regularly. Now that I am alone it is not the case.
Washing tends to be done - as one friend who also lives alone said - when one almost runs out of clean knickers (!!) - and shopping never seems to need to be done apart from fruit and vegetables and topping up the dog and cat food.
But today the jobs had piled up - and there were also some appointments, so it has been a very busy day. It has also been a lovely, sunny, late Summer day so a joy to be out and about.
Hair at 9.30, letters to post, a visit to the Physio, a topping up with petrol, a visit to a car wash - I must say it is lovely to drive away with the car gleaming - and a nice walk with the dog off the leash. Washing flapping on the line - I shall collect it shortly and iron it and put it up on the airer. The airer over the Aga is one thing I shall miss when I move.
Unfortunately a visit to the Physio always makes me very tired for the rest of the day so that jobs after that were a bit of an effort.
Meanwhile, as I am doing all these jobs, the fields around me are being cut - hopefully for hay if the weather holds - for silage it it breaks. The cut grass smells delightful.
