So, a quick summary of what happened after I left the office.
I got home and changed into my cycling gear. I cycled to Sainsbury's in Wokingham. This is 4.15 miles from home, it would appear. There are many hills involved. I got exercise and I also bought some vaguely healthy food... and some rather unhealthy food too.
I came home and cooked a meal and ate it. I was simultaneously doing laundry.
I washed up and made a smoothie, washing up the smoothie maker. The smoothie was gorgeous.
I looked at the DIY jobs that I've been putting off - put a towel rail up in the kitchen and a shelf in the bathroom. I did these jobs efficiently, leaving perfectly level results. Pleasing.
I went up to my computer and wrote the lyrics to a couple of songs. In most cases, I was just typing them up, though I did some edits. I also wrote some postcards and prepared a letter for posting.
I progressed across the hall into my makeshift studio, which I set the piano up in and then recorded a demo of a song we're hoping to do in Edinburgh.
Not a bad combination of activities for one evening. I would like to have completed the ironing, or done some painting, but you can't have everything.
