It's been one of those nothing days when the most exciting thing that happens is going to be when we watch two episodes of "The Big Bang Theory". Perhaps I should take this as a sign that I shouldn't post a blog entry today. However...
In my teaching time, such a peaceful day would have seemed a great joy so I shouldn't really complain. But it's a bit scary when you contemplate the day and realise that it's slipped uneventfully away, carrying you slightly closer to the grave. Ah yes, cheerful as usual. We didn't do nothing. I took my mother to and from her Probus club; I made soup; Mr Life and I went to Tesco - where, excitingly for him, he bought himself an Android tablet (I think that's right) with the money collected for him as a leaving present. So at least he's a happy chap. And I'm tidying the study which, when it's done, will give me a sense of satisfaction - though in fact it needs a deeper tidy (a purge of all the drawers and shelves) than it's going to get.
A month or so ago, Mr Life bought the first four series of "The Big Bang Theory" and we're really enjoying it. He'd previously been watching it for some time, but the episodes he found on cable (was it?) tended to be in the wrong order. I occasionally walked through the room where he was watching it but saw only the odd ten minutes at first and didn't get sucked in . But then I did. It's rather pathetic that I really look forward to my daily two episodes a night of BBT, but we must take our pleasures where we can. If you've never seen it, it's about four young scientists who're very clever but in various degrees have their feet some way off the ground; and the girl across the hallway who isn't academic but is much more sensible. Later, other girls come into the story too. It's very amusing - makes fun of geekiness but not in an unkind way.
Anyway, as you may have guessed, this post is an avoidance tactic - back to my study-tidying.
(Oooh, look, paragraph spaces!)
