I quite like days like today, actually, when I don’t have a lot of activities planned. So apart from a bit of necessary life-admin first thing, I had the day to myself. So I went off to the gym for a few hours as soon as could, then after lunch I thought I better do a bit of cleaning and tidying before Val gets back tomorrow. So I dashed round with the hoover, cleaned the windowsills, and bleached the bathrooms (lovely). So everything looks half decent and not like a decaying bachelor pad.
Eventually, the various chores were despatched, so I headed out into the early evening to slot in a short walk. I just went through the eastern side of the castle demesne, then up to the top of Church Road, and back down through the town and out to the marina (which was looking peaceful in the evening). It was still reasonably light when I got back at about 8:30, but the evenings are definitely drawing in now. I don’t really relish the passing of summer, but there’s plenty to look forward to this Autumn, and I’m keen to get going!
