A Little Bit Of Everything

This weekend could not really have been much more varied, a bit of this, a bit of that, and it really has just flown by. The weather has been reasonably kind, considering we are in the middle of January, but it could have been a little warmer.

Sub-zero Swanage

Practice comes first, but then I put in a fair bit of effort cycling against the chill wind. My body and legs were fine, but my ears and my fingers hated every minute. At least it stayed dry, and having my seasonal mop of hair helped keep my head warm, but the bits that were exposed to the wind took the full brunt.

Then it was a case of playing catch-up. Staying up till 4:30 this morning, to watch New England beat the Denver Broncos, 45-10, meant a rather late start. The washing and ironing still needed to get done, so it was a case of gritting my teeth and getting on with it. Not the most fun, but the results of my determined efforts are a wardrobe full of clean, ironed shirts, and drawers full of nice fresh clothes.

If you are anything like me, putting things off always results in a nagging feeling at the back of my mind. So having everything sorted out, being able to relax for the rest of the week, is a pleasure in itself. A small victory, I agree, but better than having the guilt hanging over me. Making the most of these small wins makes life that little bit more satisfying.
