Wednesday Day Off

I received an email earlier letting me know that there would not be a desk available for me at Hospice so I need not go in this week to volunteer.

I am quite pleased actually as it means that I get to lie in later and don't have to venture out in this  rain and wind.

On Tuesday afternoon I met with a charming lady who is looking for some help with her Girl Guiding computer admin  as I already help out with Girl Guiding database admin on a voluntary basis.  I am going to add this one now to my list of things to do each month to stop my brain from seizing up. It is not too onerous and I can do it at home, fitting in the tasks to suit my available time.

If the rain holds off on Thursday we may use our bus passes and go for a trip into Douglas for coffee and a browse in the shops.

Such an exciting life we lead.

    1. I know. The excitement is just too much isn't it?

  2. That's The Isle of Man for you. Now if you had chosen The Isle of Woman instead things would have been far more dramatic with wild happenings on a daily basis. Instead of being peaceful and orderly there would have been confusion everywhere with sirens and alarms going off all the time.

    1. But at least everything would be a tasteful shade of pink.

    2. And there would be plenty of cushions too. Has a straight man ever bought a cushion in the entire history of humankind?

  3. Dib dib dib. Or do they only say that at cubs? Can boys now join the girl guides? They have girls in the scouts.

    1. You could join your local Women's Institute Tasker. I advise dressing up in your wife's clothes, a curly wig and cosmetics plus two pudding bowls.

    2. I shouldn't think boys would be allowed Tasker. They would only bring their woggles with them and then where would we be?.

  4. What about a day at an allotment or browse shopping in the charity shops?

    1. Thanks northsider. I do frequent our charity shops on a regular basis, both donating and purchasing. Sometimes I just want to see what the High Street has to offer, even if I am not going to buy anything. (P is allergic to spending money)

  5. Those 'days off' are the best! No guilt involved.
