I went to dancing :-)
... actually now I am not :-)
dancing was good but I think the holiday cover employee is not a good fit.

but I found new trousers at Sainsburys that seem nice
and bought as much fizzy water as was left, which was one bottle, but I have several left so that works.
pasta was also down to two packs but I have many vegetable rice to eat, and now the correct sort of beans to go with it.

useful evening.

did a shopping instead of a meditate
because weather.

wasn't very exciting
but I do have a cushion to match the new curtains now
so that's nice.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
Today there was no dancing, so we did daytime shopping instead.
One hour in John Lewis poking things and attempting to learn more about laptops
and then Sainsburys shopping at medium sized sainsburys.

I got more at the supermarket
they had a nice long shirt meant for sleeping that I think will be a perfectly good shirt to go with leggings.

Also today my order of drawer knobs arrived, so I have many pretty things, any or all of which I could swap out for the Habitat knobs and make new and pretty patterns.

The dancing today was pretty good. No crunch even when the tricky bit with jumping into gaps. Winning.

Shopping was slightly less win, though I now have leggings. I thought they would be more trousery. I'm going to wear them anyway, the pinstripes are nice. I couldn't find a stick for putting the floor wipes on, just a bazillion sorts of mop that aren't that. But I bought bread and sandwich fillings and other food, and all the things the cleaner asked for, so that part worked.

Then when we got home we had to wait half an hour for an ambulance and some people. Don't know what happened, but the ambulance went away and a car full followed it. Hope they are all okays. With the ambulance parked though there ended up being four cars that couldn't get in or out. Here is not well designed. I am unlikely to ever know what that was about though, so I'm just going to assume that the correct help arrived in good time and all shall be well. *xfingers*

I liked the earlier bits of the evening much better.

For me, pretty good day, for some neighbours, not so much.

Mum went with me to the shop where I get all my electricals, and I ordered a new dishwasher. It will be here two Fridays from now, because they couldn't get it sooner. I figured I would rather wait than trust the internet on next day delivery; this way it's the same usual people and I know they'll stay until it works.

Also I went to the usual computer shop and discovered mostly what they don't sell and can't help me with, but also what they can. And I bought another stick to store all my other sticks on, or maybe to be the one that goes in the TV. They only had one at the size I wanted, so, shall go back later.

And then went through the supermarket to try and buy disposable plates for a backup plan for if the dishwasher is too slow. Only very small quantities per money in there, shall try another shop later. Did get microwave chips though, so those will be nice.

And then mum helped me go through the box of Things To Go, and took them away. She has the knowing of charity shops and so forth. I'm annoyed one of my new shirts is To Go, but it turned me black and came off in bits, so that's gone for cloth rubbish. And one of my nice skirts went for charity, because I realised I hadn't worn it except at that one Buffy convention when Buffy was still on. It can be nice for someone who actually wears skirts.

And all this on Cleaner Day. Which also happened successfully.

Difficult day of steady progress.

I went dancing
dancing is nice
but I ended up annoyed because New Person
and now I don't know if there's any reasonable grounds for annoyance
or if its just because New
and I'm tired.

but dancing was nice
and shopping happened
and I probably have enough foods.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
Went to Bollywood Sparkles, did a dancing, didn't crunch

Then did a shopping. Couldn't remember what I wanted so bought everything. Remembered on way home, and still hadn't bought :eyeroll:

I did buy a new ice cream scoop because the old one has gone a bit peculiar looking, and a new egg cooker and some soft things for getting the eggs with, because as it turns out sticking a knife in a plastic is not optimal and leads to many scratched bits. So I have more things to cook eggs with. Eggcellent.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I had an idea and the idea was yummy
so I went and bought breakfast
and enough bread rolls for lunch.

I went Outside
on my own, across roads
to the supermarket

I am nrave and mighty
and not especially wise
but back in one piece anyway

... soya milk of the wrong sort and breakfast cereal that has changed its name since last time I bought it, or, obviously, is not quite the right thing
did not turn out to be as good to eat as they were in my head
especially in the biggest bowl that I forgot was biggest when I filled it

but I thought of a plan and went and did it
and have been Outside on my own
... for the first time in several months, I think...
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
Dancing was cancelled by the teacher so instead we went to The Range. I found the thing I wanted within about thirty seconds, so then of course I spent the rest of the time until closing wandering up and down looking at everything else. So I have the silver mesh desk whatsit I went in for, but also a new duvet set that is almost but not quite identical to the existing one so I like it but can persuade myself I need it, new curtains that are gold but not I think going to keep sufficient light out so I still need blinds, and two rolls of duck tape because shiny and colors.

I also usefully poked a lot of other things to decide I didn't want them. Which is less interesting but still helpful. And I saw like all the curtains are giant compared to my windows. I own the usual pair of curtains but only one is up because that covers the window. Also because I don't own a curtain pole so it's hanging on the little nails that have been holding a sheet up for twenty years. If I get a curtain pole I know it'll just need both curtains to make those curtainy folds. But still. Giant amounts of curtain.

I think I like the look of them though. So that's good. Will be the first change to that window in a generation...

We also went to Sainsburys and I bought all the usual things. While noticing how many were cheaper at Morrisons.

But Sainsburys is the only one that sells my apple things, and I like them, so.

... the Sunday shopping routine worked better and the Asda and Sainsburys bit is only efficient if dancing. But I'll sort things out better later.

Successful shopping today.
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
I found three clothes for twelve pounds, and they all had long sleeves and high enough necks and were long enough to cover where I want covered.

I think they will anyway, I didn't try them on because cheap.

But the labels said six pounds so they were even cheaper than expected, probably because even more sale on top. Or because handwriting. But I feel like I win big, even if I turn out not to like them, they were well hunted.

We shopped at Morrisons and found most of my foods and then at Tesco and found almost all the rest, though some portions are different sizes. Did not find an acceptable substitute for apple thing. Will miss apple thing. Have chocolate brownie bites but they're not the same.

I also bought a bunch of DVDs, including a box of five fantasy films I'd never heard of for ten pounds. I have no idea how watchable they'll be but at that price I might as well.

Also I got a wonder woman sticker book. I stood in front of it for several minutes trying to talk myself out of it, then realised there's no particular reason not to buy it, except for being in the kids section, and why let that bother me?

I found several sorts of Black Widow figure, which is good, but I have several already.

I did not find summer weight trousers, still, because trousers apparently aren't in my size in those shops. Hmph.

I found a top with a snake scales pattern but it was see through, which does not seem correct to me even for athletic wear.

Tesco was quite a lot closed though because they're making it different. Still, made it easier to get through.

Pretty good shopping evening.

And that's my weekly hours outside the house done again...
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
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, :-)
beccaelizabeth: my Watcher tattoo in blue, plus Be in red Buffy style font (Default)
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.
