What to do now the Olympics are over
Despite only having a mild interest before they started, I found myself turning on the telly every morning (this I never do) to see what events were on. Now I will just have to start on the jobs that I had planned to do during the holidays.
You can come round to my place and do some tidying up.
Watch Homes Under the Hammer and Heir Hunters. Or all-day Come Dine With Me.
Brand new Pointless is on, too. My penance for two weeks of laziness has been a couple of hours' weeding. The garden still looks awful, though. That will do for today, gently easing myself back into a more normal routine.
I don't want normal routine. A little Escape to the Country might cheer me up a bit. Think I'll watch the opening ceremony again.
Well, I've visited my mother and done her shopping. I've hung out the washing and now I'm going to have a general all-round tidy up.
Later on I'll indulge myself with my guilty pleasure: The Real Housewives of New York. Has anyone ever watched this?
Yes, but I am not hooked thankfully. Aren't they all just vile? They are such revolting, opinionated, self-obsessed, shallow women. I watched it open-mouthed when I found it by accident. Unbelievable but, yes, hard to turn off.
I've tidied my office, found my desk and sat down. Done no work yet.
It's easy: lie in bed until 10am, reading and dozing. Get up, shower and dress. Go downstairs, make coffee and grab a packet of chocolate digestives. Sit on settee, pick up laptop, log in to TES forums. Twelve hours later, go to bed.
