A week into being non-employed it struck me that I should probably get my act together and do some things if I was going to be ready to leave less than four weeks later, so I did what I always do in such circumstances. I made a list. A “things to do before I leave the country” list. Then I consulted the packing list I compiled months ago and wrote a shopping list as well.
The things to do list currently has 41 undone items on it, two of which I’ve added since I started typing this sentence. The roster of completed actions stands at seven. With now only three weeks left, I really am going to have to get my finger out if I’m to pull in (to pick some entries at random): cutting my hair, making an outfit for a party, visiting a bunch of exhibitions and pruning the back garden.
I may have to start getting up before midday.
