What I did yesterday
- Got out of bed before 9am.
- Made myself coffee and breakfast.
- Worked on a collaborative paper I am writing with a friend.
- Applied for a contracting role.
- Organised my to do list for this week.
- Edited our food shop so I can make a green tomato chilli.
- Went for a 5k run to plan out a hash. Smashed it.
- Ran the dishwasher, though I still have ALL the dishes.
- Had lunch!
- BONUS ADULTING: Went to the opticians for a contact lens check up.
- Nearly passed out from pricking my finger on a nail, like Sleeping Beauty at the spinning wheel. Thanks phobia.
Things I didn’t do
Assemble the patio heater. Time got the best of me and then it started to rain. It’s now sitting in a box in the lounge, looking at me.
Unpack the living room. I moved a few boxes of wires around, looked at it, and by the time I was done having a little panic it was time for a run.
Type up a brief for the changes we want to make to the house. This is a huge task and thinking I can just write up like 10 pages of stuff in between running around appointments was silly.
What I’ve done today so far
- Got out of bed JUST before 9am. Winning.
- Procrastinated something fierce and tidied my desktop.
- Had a small panic about how much I should try and get on with today.
Made a GAWJUS huevos rancheros brunch. Recipe my own.
What I’m going to do today
- Get my flu jab. Tis the season 💉
- Try and get registered at a good local dentists.
- Write a draft for a paper on design workshops.
- Unpack the living room once the TV cable arrives from Amazon.
- Type up the brief for the house. Really. Do it this time. FML.
- Assemble the patio heater to make sure it just works.
I think I’m consistently overestimating how much time I have in a day if I’m being honest, but surely this isn’t that unrealistic? Right?
 Simmered tinned Biona black beans for 15 mins till thick with 1tsp~ paprika, a glug of BBQ sauce, salt and pepper. Threw it on a tortilla wrap with a poached egg, homemade salsa, Greek yoghurt, grilled halloumi, avocado, and fresh jalapeños 👌 ↶
