Dancing did not happened. I cancelled it because I had forgotten how horrible it is to move around in this weather, and then spent all day moving around in this weather.

New shelves are functioning correctly and filling nicely. Comic boxes are in their new home and plenty of space above for the magazines, as soon as I rearrange the house enough I can get at the magazines.

I figured dancing would be either indoors in the hot humid nastiness or outside on the irregular surface under grey skies with possibility of rain and, earlier, thunder. So I did not go. And next week I won't be going because Norfolk Show means all of Norfolk trying to get through one roundabout about when I'd need to go round it. And neither of these decisions please me, but they're the right ones. probably. but boo.

Shopping worked pretty good. I got a new plate to be for serving foods on, but got it in ordinary plate size and not their serving platter. I'm not sure that one would fit in the sink, let alone the washer. I also bought a tower fan, which I suspect is Too Much Fan, but okays, I have it now. It makes a variety of weird noises and the timer continues to make noise after you've unplugged it, so seems like that bit is clockworks or something, That or it's about to blow up, guess I'll find out.

Foods also worked, everything in its place, and there were two brands of non dairy ice cream with two or possibly even more flavours each! I bought the sort I've tried before in chocolate and vanilla. If I eat it all I can try the alpro. But obviously that will take a while.

... it better take at least two weeks cause I'm shopping more local next week. Means I'll miss picking up my apple thing. Boo.

My day was only exciting if you appreciate good shelving and alphabetisation, but I do, so, :-)

I did not dance at the voting place
but I voted and then went dancing
which is a good way to deal with the stress, I feel.

Dancing lessons are good but busy full of dances I didn't learn or have mostly forgotten. But we always do more of the main dance, so I'm learning that better every week. Dancing is fun, being in error is less fun but still tolerable with all this practice.

ASDA still says unavailable on my juice drinks, so only Sainsburys shopping happened. I nearly bought some new trousers but need more thinking. I bought many foods and can once again choose between several meals :-)

now to wait
and theoretically sleep
but really stay up to see results.

but at least I have good foods and ribenas for while I do.

I went to Norwich and went in many shops!

I did not find new trousers, and skirts remain uncomfortable for several reasons.
I also did not find a new and lighter dress for dancings.
But I looked many places.

I looked in Inanna's Festival too, but none of the wands were precisely right, though they were nice. Always many things that are good to look at in there though.

I did get books from Waterstones and DVDs from the television and movie store. Which was as planned. And then we went to Rainbow wholefoods and I also got some not-cheese and a tiny ice not-cream. Which I think survived the car home okay also, though in this weather you never know.

I times things correctly and we got home when we needed to and it was a successful day
even if it was mostly finding out what won't do.

We also stopped to see where I donated my piano to, because I had a minor mystery of not being sure if I sent the piano music in the piano stool with it or not. This was not answered, because of the new and interesting mystery where they say there wasn't a piano stool with it.

... okay then.

But they had a section for piano music that didn't have my piano music in, so there's that.

I definitely do not want the piano back. It is gone all gone. Is good.

... my head is still mostly ????? about it, but it does no good fussing if the whole thing has gone invisible anyway.


Had a nice shoppings in the daytime. Many books to read now :-)
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I did not go to dancing, because headache and nausea do not go with dancing, boo.

I did not go to Asda, because employee has been once already today and the five alive isn't there and they've closed the space on the shelf where it ought to be. Arse.

I did go to Sainsburys, where I found wuite a nice spring coat, on the sale rail, on a day with 25% off. And they had my food and I got a bunch of fizzy water and that will have to do for drinks. So that was pretty okay.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I went Dancing.
Dancing is good.
I did a lot of sitting down too, because most of it was practicing to perform at a handfasting, which I don't do, and I hadn't learned most of the dances.

Also I do not do the stick dance because too much potential for crunching.

But then we went shopping and I found a cute top for super much money off, so I think I win at today.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
i am not a fan of buying things
because i get a panic about it
and as soon as i click order my head goes all loud and jangly and stays that way for aaaaaaages.

but I am a fan of books arriving at my house for me to read
and dvd sets

today is communication tasks day
and I live in hope of getting rid of the piano
because then i can order more shelves

said task hasn't happened all april or, more broadly, for two christmases
but i can hope.

if i get more shelves and there's room for all the books
i can buy more doctor who books
which i put on pause while all available shelves are double deep.

... logically all books should pause, but, they are so good to read...
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I went to dancing :-)
It didn't hurt :-)
Until somewhere in the cooldown stretches when it hurt all the way from the top of my hip on down, which was nasty, and I swore a bit out loud in class, which obviously one tries not to do.
It's weird though, everything is fine until it isn't, and it's hard to figure when it isn't, except getting in and out of the car. Maybe my sitting down hurts. boo.

But the shopping worked good and I have four movies because they were a fiver each and most of them said Classic. So they probably won't be very good by current standards but I've heard of them whenever other things copy them, so they'll be interesting.

now I'm going to eat real food with vegetables, because I rather forgot all day.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
Dancing was good and we learned some more dance and are now precisely half way through

Mr P was there for the first time in aaaaaaaaages so everyone was :-)
but then he sat too close to my employee because trying to be friendly but she would rather he was friendly from an arms length away so she was not smiles.

he remembered me to say hi to though
and we remembered the dances
so those bits were good.

shopping also worked and I have fifteen five alive :-)

now i get to eat food and all is good.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I went to the dancings but it did not work out very well.
I was dizzy and did sitting down dancing instead, which doesn't work very well.
I think being awake since 0530ish is not compatible with dancing.

but it should be, because dancing usually makes feel better.

I did shoppings and bought a yoga mat as well as the usual foods. I have put it under all the exercises I have taped to the bookcase. It will make me feel like I'm making progress towards this exercise thing.

I tired now.

But I did all the things I set out tom albeit slowly and feeling blergh, and that's the best some days get.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
At least I hope I win at shopping. I bought two shirts and two pairs of trousers, but they're actually the same pair of trousers in two shades, grey and black, because I tried on Manu trousers and these ones fit good enough.

Bon Marche has things clearly labelled with trouser length and has many different lengths of things. Several fabrics were acceptable too. So I'm hoping I'll still like these two later.

I also went to Argos to buy a games thing but it will be delivered tomorrow. I figure either I'll like it or my brother will. Sega games that are ancient but who cares as long as they're playable.

This makes this week a Very Busy, because I went Outside on three different days, two of them not in the routine. But with any luck at all I now have trousers that will go on on all the days and sit down and everything. I hope. And if I don't I have receipts and a plan.

... the things that count as an exciting week around here...
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I went to the library and looked at Which and chose a TV and bought the TV in a shop by talking to a human.
Now I feel blech because I spent a money and feel foolish for not being an expert on things I only buy very seldom.
But if I have bought a wrong thing then I shall try again, no problem, so.

I also paid for installation so they can make it work with the new fancy recorder box. The new things are Smart because all the new TVs are Smart apparently. I don't know why all things must be Smart now. It seems like more ways to go wrong. Why not just be a TV?

... I do not feel smart. I feel nauseous and tearful. I do not think this is a reasonable reaction to purchasing electricals though so I shall ignore it.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
we were so bad when we tried the newest dance at the start of class. so bad. it was hilarious.
the people we usually copy were not there and the teacher did not do the dance, so she could see how we did.
we did very little...

But an hour later we were back up to 55 seconds of correct dance, so that was big win. much learning.

my hip is doing something uncomfortable, orsort of over my hip, but my back is much better. so that's nice.

shopping mostly worked, but my apple trellis pastries was not there.
i think it is just as well
buying a packet of biscuits yesterday evening and eating them all by this evening is not behaviour to be rewarded.

but I have nice proteins and bread and vegetable soups and many nice meals for the week.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I was unsure that dancing on top of the week I had would work out. So I just did a shoppings instead.

ASDA clothes are usually not nice textures. There was one black and red shirt there that looked promising but only had three quarter length sleeves. Sainsburys clothes have gone colors I don't quite want. So I looked at everything and bought only new slippers that promise Machine Washable and seem soft nice. ASDA had a nice lightshade though, so I bought one to swap out with the purple one on the hall. I think purple light with yellow walls isn't quite the thing any more.

Sainsburys had all my foods, so now I get to eat apple trellis pastries and decide what main course I'll want out of many options.

... I went to type this, the page jumped, I marked all my messages as read.
which is far from the worst thing that could have happened, but still. 83 pages, now all same.


I win
I went to dancing, and while not speedy and a bit wobbly, I danced the whole time
and then I did my shoppings.

I'm kind of headachey
and my hallway smells a bit not good from some of the new stuff

but I did all the thursday things, so yaays.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I did a shopping! I did the *most* shopping!

Employee could finally get scheduled a daytime shopping, so I had to do All The Things, or at least all the things that are not at Sainsburys.

I got three new pairs of dancing slippers from Head in the Clouds.

I got a most excellent pirate hat at Beaujangles. ... it is too small, I think, which might make it only medium excellent, but it is for the pirate party at Redemption, and it is sufficiently excellent for that for £8.50. I bought a headband too and somehow will attach it to the hat to make it stay on. Or possibly will take it to chaos costuming and make sad face...

I did the donating at Oxfam so I got solar power and clean water and some foods for charity people.

I got new handbag on the market, one that is not held together by my keyrings, though I'm not quite sure of it yet and might get a different one instead. It seemed like the best at the time and it has the same zippers in the same places but ... well probably but I dislike change even when things have fallen apart twice now. It'll do to be going on with.

I got a new chain for my tardis key, though it is not as long as the old one. Technically I have some 'army dog tags' but it's quite the cheapest way to get a chain, I checked many places first.

I looked for a new coat but found that coats can be Very Expensive and don't tell you useful things like if they're warm and dry somehow even when very thin. And then the other shop wasn't where employee thought and then we went in the mall and the things were too much and many and I gave up on that bit.

Boots had vitamins and wipes for the first aid draw.

Waterstones did not have the rest of the Temeraire books. It had space on the shelf. Probably someone else has them.
Jarrolds has books in the basement but not Novik.
I shall order online.

Rainbow Wholefoods does have Cheesly :-) which is not awesome but has actual protein in pretend cheese form. Some of the others do not have any. They shouldn't call themselves cheese.
It only had two left though, so I'll have to go back sometime. If I still like these kinds. But still, achieved.

So I have shoes, a hat, a handbag, a chain, vitamins, and cheese.

That is a very plenty extra successful couple of hours.

It was also a whole bunch of traffic jam and annoyance.

But I win at shopping.

And now I have two or three hours of lying still before it is time to go dancing.

... I'm stubborn, so I am going, but I maybe might end up doing sitting down dancing.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I went Outside! On my own! To the shop, because I have been craving chocolate biscuits for three days now and enough is enough.

... taking three days to go from 'want to shop' to 'actually left the house' might not appear impressive
i did it.

now I have bread rolls and quorns and chocolate brownie bites and biscuits and ribena and toothbrushes.
so i win.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I like dancing even though I'm really not very good at it.
I didn't remember the new dance, and there's a bit on the middle where even if I do remember my feet don't do the things, but I have a lot of fun anyway.
Also my back no longer hurts, pretty much, and I can do dancing for the whole length of the lesson with no extra sitting downs.


Shopping was also excellent. ASDA had twenty four juices again so now I have Many and shopping there is optional for ages. Sainsburys had the nice foods as usual, except for my breakfast teacakes, those were empty so I got a dofferent sort that might not be correct. Shall see.


I am in a plenty good mood.
Meditating and dancing seems to work pretty good.

Also I did a ton of laundry today and it mostly worked as intended. One set of drying did not in fact dry; I think it needs to cool down before the sensor knows what it's meant to do. But that set is in the dryer again now so with any luck it should work.

I don't think the laundry smells the same though, even though we made the packets match quite carefully. I dislike when things just get changes and there's no options about it.

I did laundry all afternoon while I also slept, so I woke up and changed the settings or took stuff out and put stuff in and then went back to sleep. Efficient ;-)

Pretty good day.

I went to dancing and it was fun. I know more dances than I think, but not as well as I'd like.

I got all wore out though. All the way up to All Done without actually being done. It was weird feeling tearful and cheerful at the same time.

I finished the shopping though so that worked out. And then I made large food, because I forgot to eat today except biscuit, which probably explains a lot.

I am sooooooo tired. I was just on autopilot to finish eating.

Next I should sleep. But that involves getting out of this chair to go to bed...
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
Sunday shopping worked for the first time in aaaaages
but brother did not want to watch a movie, so I feel like it only half worked.

I don't need many foods from there if I'm not eating brownie bites and I have regular shopping elsewhere.
amaybe we need a different sunday routine.

but I like when I can feed people, even if all the cooking is done by the store
and it's not exactly awesome eats.

Dancing :-)

Today I was going to do double dancing but my back hurt last week so this week didn't seem like a time to double my exercise.
But I did one hour of dancing lessons and it was fun. We started a new dance, and it involves quite a lot of traveling around the floor, which always leads to laughing and bumping and oops. But it stayed fun oops, so, that was fun.

Then it was shopping time. Asda had all of three Five Alive. I guess I bought all the juice that time I got twenty four. It would be nice if their computer could learn I want nine to twelve every week, but I guess it can't if there are not nine to twelve to buy every week, and I keep pouncing on twenty four. So.

Sainsburys had my apple thing though, and bread and quorns and tea for mum, and also a silver top for half price that will do nicely for the convention next month. Also there's another set of china that I like the look of. It's like I've had for years only probably nicer. But now I am home I remembered I was planning to get two different colors this time, and this would be two of blue. But it is nice. And it has nice pasta bowls too, interesting shapes. I shall think on it.

Now I am tired.

But I have nice foods for eating. I win.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I especially win because the actually christmas-y parts of shopping I already had. except mum said to buy backup chips because the potato might not work.

We went to Tesco and ASDA and Sainsburys.

Tesco had some good shirts and some fluffy trousers for cheap. I got the shirt in blue but already am thinking I should have had red or black or both as well. Maybe go back later. Half my wardrobe is me buying all the color options of a thing.

ASDA had twenty four of five alive! Actually they had more extra, they had five alive on top of the shelves and the staff guy got them down. I bought twenty four and still left several for other shoppers. Excellent shopping. Means I probably don't have to go to ASDA next week.

Sainsburys have my apple thing and have been told I shop in daytime next week not evening. My apple thing is an order so I figured I should say. I also remembered to actually look at my list and so have bought the thing I came home three weeks running and thought doh because I'd forgot it. Yaay food. And I got batteries, because of vague feeling that christmas batteries always run out, even though I don't currently buy things that need them. But I think I swapped batteries on the zappers and there's maybe not many around? But they were buy one get one, so now I have 16 batteries. I suspect that is sufficient for a while.

and now we are home, half an hour early, after starting quarter of an hour late.

next week is daytime shopping and I shall think of many places to go so I can use up all the time. I can go to places that are not late night opening supermarkets. it shall be grand.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
It was the last dance class of the year so we did dressing up and trying lots of old dances. Teacher reckoned I wouldn't know them, because been away long and long. But I knew seven dances :-)
... not well enough to figure where my feet go. or where I should be moving around the floor to, so I did mostly sitting down dancing, but still, I have studied Many, and would only need to polish the memory up a bit.

I wore long gloves with the shinies down the side, and a waist scarf with jangly coins. I do not have xmas costume. Nut others were a nun or... well, one person brought a whole bag and changed between dances, over the top of a batgirl with a cape, so there was not really an overarching theme.

Teacher gave us all cards and presents :-)
I shall find out what present on present opening day.
but, present :-)

Asda was adequate, Sainsbury's had my foods, and I found the paper tablecloth I need for xmas, with gold stars.

Pretty good day.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
Dancing again today. I couldn't quite concentrate. Also sometimes felt a bit like on remote control. Boo. I usually like dancing. But I didn't crunch anyone today so I still winning.

I was thinking what dance Mick Rory might get into.

Maybe morris? Big blokes, beer, and big sticks. Plus I found some on youtube calling itself a fire dance, but since they were just wearing black and orange tatter coats rather than actually on fire he may find that disappoint.

ASDA had only 3/12 the five alive I wanted, Sainsburys hadn't got my apple pastry though they did apologise plenty good, and they don't sell some of the first aid stuff I was look for neither. Also I forgot my penguin bag because driver was ten minute early so I didn't get all the freezer things neither. not a very successful.

but i'm home safe so that's okay.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
dancing was nice
we have learned the whole of the new dance and are now trying to be good at it
which takes a bunch of work.

shopping worked. five alive worked. apple pastry worked. plenty of pasta. And Sainsburys sell a sparkly loo seat, so hopefully this third one will go on and not be broken. loo seats are ridiculous.

I was so tired this morning I had to stop before the end of the fic, when they'd done the Daring Adventure and the Horrible Misunderstanding and they were ready for the Happily Ever After. So I have that to look forwards to.

but right now I get to eat apple trellis :-)
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I remembered the Twist dance I learned last time I went to dancing lessons. And that was many years ago. I danced it like everyone else today.

Winning :-)

I am slightly more of a muddle about the dance we are currently learning, because there's bits where you end up facing backwards and can't follow the same people. But I didn't crunch anyone so that works out.

Thursday routine takes 45 minutes longer when we have to do the shopping backwards and use the back roads :-(

But my juice was there and my apple things were there and I have many foods now, including everything for christmas if I don't eat it first. That's not very impressive, for christmas I cook quorn chunks and steamfresh vegetable bags, and maybe micro chips if mum doesn't want to do roast potato. But she has said she will do the potato and gravy this year so my half is ready.

I don't like the coats on sale at the moment. They happen in too short, and too small, and far too many are too dark. They are not warm and waterproof at once. Most of them are for looking fashionable on the way to the car. What if you want something to function correctly? And why do only worker coats in the yellow have any reflective stripes? Everyone needs to be visible at night, it seems like they could incorporate reflective bits more widely and creatively.

I took a couple pictures of DVD sets I wouldn't mind getting for christmas too so I can tell mum those next time she asks. We're difficult.

I like Thursdays :-)
