I'm going on holiday on Saturday...the pre-holiday stress is definitely building. So much to do, so little time.
Actually, work stuff, I have something that 'absolutely must' be done by Thursday, I don't think it is possible to get it all done by then, but I am going to have someone all ready for me to hand it over to so that's OK really.
And I don't really have that much to do at home, so nothing to panic about there.
I do have my first music lesson on Thursday after the summer, I am just hoping I won't be his least-practice-over-the-summer student
Spare time has just been non-existant in August, lots to do with mother-in-law dying just don't seem to have been home much. Though I can probably tell a lot of the detail of the A11 that I never knew before
Plus it is all worse because I am tired. Got woken up by bang-crash last night, which is indicative that the cat has something that she is 'playing' with. About five mins after, my husband woke up, and I warned him as he prepared to leave the room that he should watch his feet, there's likely to be dead mouse out there.
Unfortunately there wasn't; there was an alive but eviscerated mouse out there, cat was still playing with the poor thing. Got the cat out of the way, and then the mouse decided to hide under the cooker. It's 2.45am, I can't be moving the cooker, watching the gas tube, blah blah blah at this point. So poor little mousey had to be left there, I can only think it must have gone in to shock and died pretty quickly, given the amount of its insides that were left in the bathroom. Will hunt it out this evening when I get home (something to look forward to...)
The only positive is that it's one more nail in the coffin of that dreadful cream carpet in our bathroom! (Seriously, people who owned our house before: just off-white carpet is bad enough, but in the bathroom? Where every water spillage shows, never mind any other spillage or mouse blood or whatever? I will be replacing it with something wipe-clean!)
Gah! That's better!
