Since buying these plants, that I mentioned about in, “Bringing some greenery into my life,” my home is starting to feel like home again, since when Miley had to be put to sleep.
This month has been some fun and games.
Near the beginning of the month, was lunch and games, that I organised not quite a month beforehand. The games were the unknowing part with my mum and a best friend.
The games they were going to play, were what I researched beforehand, after just asking my mum purely out the blue, if she was to play a table top game at the table, what would it be? And as for my friend, unknowing to him, until now, he answered the question along with some other friends, when I asked what their favourite board games, or table games were, on my Facebook wall. 😀 So I knew what they both liked.
For my mum, it was table tennis and for my friend, it was Monopoly. So I bought them, as I hope after this one we had this month, that maybe we can do it again, where we have lunch and play board games, or something. 🙂
I also bought a board game that I could play on my own, which is harder than it looks, but addictive. It is called, Quadrillion, by Smart Games and this game will exercise the brain.
I bought this from Amazon and I plan to buy another game of theirs later, which is also a one player game called, Anti-Virus.
It’s also been a month of…
Binge watching of dvd’s and some walks in the sunshine.
I also read a book, that I would not normally read. It took me longer to read than normal, of a book of this size, which I started reading a couple of months ago and finished this month, with studying and other things going on. The book was called, “A Movable Feast,” by Ernest Hemingway. This book was The Restored Edition and I have wanted to read this book for some time out of curiosity, from seeing the book appear in my favourite film I never get bored with called, “City of Angels.” It was a different kind of book to read and I liked how the author described things.
I received feedback from my first assignment in my pet sitting course and I got a pass. The course I am doing, for those new following, is “Dog Walking & Pet Home Sitting Professional Level 4.” From further details I have learnt about how the course is marked, you have to achieve a pass, before you can progress on. If you don’t, you have to submit additional information for the assignment to meet the objective.
As my feedback is typed, I can clearly read everything on the paper, compared to a course elsewhere, when it was written very quickly, that I could not read it and was seeking help from my Facebook friends.
The printed sheet I receive back from my tutor, has tutor talk on it, which on his paper reminded me about how to save my own copy of work sent to the tutor and about learning objective and how my work has to be a pass to progress onwards. My paper tells me my grade on my piece of work marked, which shown I passed, as mentioned earlier, along with any comments my tutor leaves me, which he said “a pleasing letter produced, Elizabeth. Excellent work!” I also know the tutor’s name and also the person who is an internal moderator as well.
So on with assignment two. 🙂
Don’t expect me to act my age
So this year, I was 42 on 18th May and it doesn’t seem two years ago when I talked about hitting 40 here, in this blog post: The big 4-0. Can you remember that post?
I wasn’t going to have my birthday off work this year originally, but I changed my mind the month before and put a couple of days in. The day before, I just chilled at home, but on the day, I was out nearly all day; lunch with mum, then late afternoon to evening with some friends.
I don’t feel my age and I don’t intend to act it either. I just want to play silly, have a laugh and spread happiness. At work, I have shown my fun and bonkers side. I have certainly made them laugh, or smile, so I am doing something right and they said I am bonkers, so I am happy with the title.
Treated myself to a new cd
From reading another blog who likes to listen to Ben Howard, who I’ve not heard off, (but I am out of touch with music,) so I thought I’d take a listen. After listening to a few songs via You Tube, I decided I liked to listen to him as well and so I bought his album, “Every Kingdom.” I have enjoyed his album, so I intend to buy his next album when it is released in June, called “Noonday Dream.”
I applied for a morning cleaning job and I have an interview, on Tuesday. 🙂
Living room freshened up
My living room was freshened up with a coat of paint on the walls and ceiling, by the same decorator I had to do my dining room. It feels brighter and cheerful, while I remain living where I am, until one day I move.
