it’s all in the planning . .

January 27, 2017

It’s been a funny old day. Super Girl didn’t have school, so we did a bit of faffing about at home and then went down to the village to go to the bank, and exciting things like that – made a lot more exciting by the prospect of a scone at the eponymous café. We unexpectedly bumped into the Domestic Goddess theoretically doing some work (she switched on her laptop and wrote a word on a pad and underlined it, so that definitely counts), and I was telling her about my plans to revamp our dining chairs. Essentially – our current chairs are wicker and a bit rickety, so in need of replacement, our neighbours were getting rid of their old dining chairs, so got rid of them our way so now, obviously what I have is two dodgy sets of chairs, and the plan is to paint and re-upholster the new (to us) chairs and then dispense with the others. You’ve spotted the flaw in this, right? The DG saw it straight away, the word is “plan.” She gave me a very knowing look and said it will be interesting to see how far I’ve got in five years time. Cut to the very quick, I went right back home and did a bit of knitting. These things can’t be rushed.

    Plans have to be planned. Knitting calms the mind. Sounds good to me.

      Whilst this is true, I suspect that those who know me well would argue that calm planning can be overdone, and there really ought to be a time for action too!
