Good things today:
Went out for breakfast to lovely café for pasteis de nata like a grown up who knows how to leave the house.
None of your five a day
Apple crumble for lunch. Yeah, just apple crumble. What?
Got two good commissions out of nowhere (no, neither of them were to give my moving and perceptive view of turning forty. One of them was this, randomly)
I have started on your most helpful and tempting podcast recommendations with Strangers, which is just great and I also acquired a whole new set of crime recommendations (reading, rather than actual felonies) on Twitter. I will report back if any of them turn out to be good.
It is Friday and I do not need to get up in the morning, no not even if the dog stands at the foot of the stairs and makes a noise like a deflating balloon, that is what (i) earplugs and (ii) children are for.
No one came home with any new disasters/punishments/enormous bills for macabre school equipment to report (or at least they chose not to report them which suits me fine).
There were some really good lists in the comments on the last post.
Bad things today:
The lovely café sells SPECULOOS PASTEIS DE NATA, which is obviously against the rule of nature and the gods.
I have probably not eaten the healthiest set of foods a person could optimally eat today (dinner was pizza).
I had to share a room with the rebellious printer-bastard today and felt a mixture of shame and rage at its giant mocking useless form blocking out most of the light.
Physical disintegration continues apace/accelerates and I have run out of giant orange horse pills.
Achieved none of the dreary admin tasks on my several to-do lists.
Had to watch several tedious hours of Koh-Lanta (French survivor), L's favourite programme, gangs of dullard French men running around in scrubland trying to use a compass.
Had to spend some time in the company of a website so extravagantly dull I kept drifting off into a fugue state whenever my eyes rested on it. Consequently failed to complete necessary website related tasks and must return to it next week.
I have worked it out and I definitely got the calculation wrong and my birthday falls on the 39th day of the forty day posting thing. Ha ha ha.
One minute left! Good and bad for your Friday? You are so kind to keep commenting, thank you.
