I've been off this week (not my preferred plan, I usually avoid half term). I live on my own anyway, but I usually have stuff lined up, but not this week for all kinds of reasons.
I had kept this weekend free as today is my brother's 50th birthday, so I had assumed that there would be festivities to deal with (and is why I didn't plan to go to London today and why I turned something else down). At fairly short notice (three weeks ago), he changed his mind and went away on Thursday with his OH to Cornwall and left my nephews at home. My mum has gone over to make sure things don't get out of hand.
So, one choir is off this week, one music lesson was cancelled, no need to pop over to mum's to help with her shopping etc (she doesn't drive) and apart from the chamber choir last Monday and orchestra this morning, I've not seen or spoken to anyone all week.
The highlight of the week was a visit to the luthier and spending three hours writing explanatory notes about a constitution I've drawn up and references to charity commission documents for the orchestra which would like to register as a charity - I've done this before so I volunteered to help them with it. Oh, and reading some G6 theory stuff.
Exciting stuff huh?
I think I'll go for a swim - it'll keep me off the streets for an hour or so!
I'll be able to justify a glass of wine later then.
