I'll start: Got the chore of the Year 11 controlled assessment marking done early on so as not to be too depressed at the end of the holiday (that was perhaps my greatest achievement). Initiated a running-round-the-park with daughter which lasted the first two (sunny) days but has ground to a halt due to her inability to be out of bed before midday, (and after that she is worried that someone she knows might spot her in running mode). Bought a new water butt (to ensure I am prepared for the hosepipe ban), taken possession of a brand spankingly new and huge green waste wheelie bin as part of the council's new initiative. Bought a brand spankingly new and huge wheelie bin for general non-recyclable waste to accompany the council's offering. Cleared the garage of much junk, and inspite of husband's five bikes being in situ, have cleared an access path so as to be able to put things in the wheelie bins. Visited the Hockney exhibition - great! Seen my home town as a tourist on a "London Blitz Walk" - very interesting and I'm tempted to go on a different one this afternoon. Eaten too much chocolate I am feeling fairly satsified by all the above, but then I am middle-aged, and am easily pleased.
