/ Sunday /
midnight- our dinner guests are still here
1.46- They leave to go home
1.50 I take out contacts, brush my teeth and unpin my hair to put it into a pony tail. Sleep after analysing our conversation with the guests. Tell him he shouldn’t have brought up homeschooling.
11.40- Boyfriend stirs and starts browsing on his phone. I think it’s about 8 oclock and try to stay asleep.
11.53- I ask what time it is, he tells me it’s past 12. This is very unusual. Can’t remember last time we slept past 9.30, but we’re usually in bed by 10.30pm.
12.10- After chatting for a while, and phone browsing my stomach is growling too much so I get up.
12.12- He gets in the shower and I head to the kitchen to take iron pill with some water, and contraceptive. Put on some frozen toast.
12.14- it’s burnt, put on another piece
12.16- eat it standing up. take zinc tablet.
12.30- I have a bowl of cereal, finishing my milk. We make a plan to go to supermarket to get me more milk and some pate for him. I get dressed. I put the dishwasher on.
12.45- we drive to get fuel, and I can’t unscrew my own fuel cap.
1- In morrisons, shopping. Get tangerines, pate, ham, baguette and 2 bottles of milk.
1.30- Home. put dishwasher on properly this time. I read more Mother’s Days while slowly eating baguette with pate and strawberries. He’s watching a war documentary, but since it’s narrated by Jeremy Clarkson who I hate, he considerately uses headphones.
2.20- I make myself some ‘instant tea’- sugar and water effectively, with a nice flavour though.
2.48- I write this. I google an ancestor who was first sea lord in the uk, to find he has his own wikipedia page. I email the link to my dad.
3.01- we decide to go for a walk so i get changed and we put our wellies, coats and scarves on.
we walk down to the river, up along the crest past the new built lovely houses and loop back down to the river’s edge then back through the village.
3.45- get back, make tea for us both and sit down to our computers. i open out my newspaper and magazine bundle from yesterday, my saturday ritual.
4.01- clipped a recipe for pear muffins (reasonably healthy)
4.04 – opened dishwasher to allow the things to cool
4.27 finish reading an article in the magazine about babies on the neonatal ward – where I have a placement coming up soon for my course.
4.57 I finish reading the family section of the newspaper, and look at a site dedicated to returning soft toys to children
5.01- Finish reading the cooking section
5.05- halfway through muddling through a will self essay i realise I need to do some homework for tomorrow.
