The First Of May

It’s quite rare that Bank Holiday Monday, or May Day, actually falls on May 1st, but this year it has.

I woke up around eight this morning, and Kathy got up ready for work, and left around nine thirty; she got a lift from Amers, her manager, as she was a little late leaving.

I made some coffee but was feeling quite crappy this morning,  so I had a lie-down again. Did meditation, and thought about going back to sleep but decided I’d get up and try and get into the swing of the day a bit, so here I am typing away at my Mac.

Mind, you, as any geeks knows, working at a computer soon calls for a coffee break…

Easy Like Sunday Morning

This Sunday morning is not any Sunday morning. No Sir. It’s THAT Sunday morning. That Sunday once a month when we take a walk into Cranford Park and go take samples from the River Crane.

So this morning we got up at eight, got dressed and went straight to the park. Otherwise, we get up, make bacon and eggs for breakfast and then we sit there feeling full and not wanting to move.

We did wonder if it would be wet underfoot crossing Avenue Park or muddy and boggy on the path near the river, as Cranford Park is not well-drained in parts. However, it wasn’t either of these things, and we soon got a water sample. We measured the flow of the river, and the depth.

We headed back home, and I got straight into a most important task, that of grinding some beans and making a fresh pot of coffee.

Once that was done, and some relaxing Sunday tunes were fired up from Spotify, then I was able to get on with the next task, that of reporting our findings on the river. The data is collected and we get regular reports on how clean the river is (or not, after any pollution incident).

Next up, I thought, while I’ve got my laptop fired up and on my lap, I’ll got for today’s two hundred and fifty, so here it is!

What’s next of today’s agenda? After I’ve wrapped this up, it’s a trip to Costco to stock up on a few grocery items.

See you tomorrow!

Back To The Grind

Cappuccino Back to work today after a three day sick break. I don’t which was most annoying. Losing three days paid work or suffering the bug itself. I’m still feeling that I have a distinct lack of energy but it can only get better I’m sure.

It’s a long day today; almost twelve hours. Still I’m enjoying this three hour break in the middle of that right now and wring this with the help of a large cappuccino with an extra shot of espresso in.

Will it keep me awake?  Well, I’m not prone to falling asleep during  the day, what ever I’m doing, but I’ll be glad to get done and get home this evening
