9:00 – Crawl out of bed. Sitting (the sitting is ended by the man from UPS with H’s latest credit card statement), breakfast. Very low energy at the moment. Sitting is better than yesterday and the day before, but I still drift off, particularly when I’m completing a circuit, or a specific part of the exercise. Also I get vague around the feet.
I spend the morning on chores, mostly washing and ironing shirts.
I’ve always found ironed shirts (and the act of ironing too, for that matter) extremely gratifying.
At 12:30 I begin making lunch: salad with very lemony dressing and last-chance basil, pasta with bacon in tomato sauce.
13:30 – Lunch.
After lunch we eat chocolate rice flakes and drink tea.
I spend the afternoon recoding things on the GC site, for a future iteration. The idea is to make it exactly the same but better. This takes me all the way to 18:20, when I have a shower.
18:45 – To the Samye Dzong centre for the Shinay sitting.
20:05 – We go via the bank (where there is a very long queue for the cashpoint – must be a Friday night) and return home. I let H in and go to the corner shop where I buy a 2 litres of milk and some popcorn (in case we want popcorn).
Return home and look at my handiwork from this afternoon until dinner is ready.
20:45 – Dinner – rice balls – two each of sour plum and of seaweed, and one each two kinds of sesame seed. Mmm!.
More bits of coding. Discovering groovy features in the software (editing emails and text entry fields in the TextMate word processor, for example, which is very cool).
22:29 – Posting this. Soon the monthly toast and then, eventually, to bed.
