I usually have a post all ready for publishing first thing in the morning…but not today! Today is ironing day! I need to do a lot of catching up and sort out some of the photos I took while I was away to see what might be of interest to anyone except my family and friends – don’t want to overdo it with holiday spam!
My own posts are very much neglected after I spent a long time last night working my way through the posts and comments from other bloggers on these two pillars of the blogging world:
It was definitely worth making the time for these great provisions though. It’s great to have the support from other bloggers helping us reach our full blogging potential! Oh how we do miss The Daily Post Provisions. The bloggers who have set up their own avenues to keep everyone connected deserve a huge thank you from all of us. I know there are more out there, so please forgive me if I have not mentioned your community posts – or send me a message so I can add you to this post.
I have twelve posts in my drafts folder that I am working on – all with great potential – but not one of them do I have the mental energy for until I have some more coffee inside of me. All those drafts have issues I need to iron out.
But right now I really do have to prioritise on my ironing! I came back to London yesterday. I emptied my suitcase and I have already done some washing and ironing…but the rest of my clothes I put into storage under my bed and I have pulled everything out this morning and everything is squished and crumpled.
So, I am going to wade my way through a mountain of ironing. Which is fine – I love ironing! Then I need to go shopping, because I have lots of coffee in the flat…and then all I have is jars of herbs and spices. I cleared everything out because people were staying here while I was away.
So far today, I have only had black coffee…and have ironed around a quarter of my clothes. I have been working my way through my e-mails also and made two phone-calls to companies who have invited me for an interview. That’s something else I may not have mentioned. Let me just check…oh yes, there it is, in my drafts folder, I am not ready to publish it yet, but a full account of my search for another job – potentially the perfect job.
I am so used to having constant chatter for the past couple of weeks that it suddenly seems eerily quiet here. So, I think while I finish off my ironing I am going to find something to have on the TV to keep me company…oooh Cherish Finden and Benoir Blin – ooooh, that should be good. All the potential to keep my mind occupied while I am ironing.
So think of me, sorting out my little abode today, pulling everything back out of storage and putting it back in it’s little place…and ironing pretty much everything I own. I promise to put a bit more time into some of my other posts at some stage.
I am going to say “Ciao for now” and carry on with my ironing.
I can’t think straight until I have made this little place orderly again. Only then can I reach my full potential.
