The Week That Was... 7th March 2016

It's been a busy week both at home and at work, so apologies for being slightly behind with the blog and if I haven't been around as much as usual on social media, I hope to catch up with everyone very soon.

This was my week...

Feeling Meh!
To be honest I'm feeling a bit 'meh' about everything at the moment. The cold weather is starting to get on my nerves and I'm longing for warmer days and the chance to see my daughters at Easter. When you're feeling under the weather there are two options and you can either keep moping or, drag yourself up and do something - anything will do.

I don't have a tendency to mope, so instead I've tackled a few of the tasks from the 'Snowball in Hell' list on my planner. The theory behind this is...

1. It's actually quite cathartic ticking things off the list.
2. The house is improving and the aspiration of living in a minimalist home could actually happen one day,
3. Once the weather changes for the better, I'll have completed most of the mind-numbing tasks on the list and be able to enjoy time off for good behaviour :o)

Live Music
On Friday we enjoyed a brilliant night out. I'd deliberated over buying tickets as I usually finish work too late to arrive anywhere on time, but fortunately the journey home was trouble-free and I arrived at the venue with minutes to spare. OK, so dinner was a packet of crisps washed down with a couple of glasses of wine, but the evening of live music featuring Nashville-based singer-songwriters, Angel Snow and Matthew Perryman Jones was the perfect antidote to the end of a crazy week. The beauty of the small venue is that the acts tend to hang around at the end of the night and I was lucky enough to chat to both of them. Here are a couple of video links if anyone wants to check out their music...

Mother's Day
Sunday was Mother's Day and as both daughters are away at uni, neither of them made it home. Instead, we arranged to chat and at one point I had one daughter on the phone, while chatting to the other on Skype. I may have extracted kisses (via Skype) from both daughters - obviously this was allowed being Mother's Day; normally this wouldn't happen and my request would be ignored.

Well that's about it for this week's news. I hope you're all doing OK, I hope to catch up with everyone soon.
