I spent from 9am to 5pm today lifting, shifting, twisting, bending, unpacking, climbing, bending, cutting, assembling and arranging furniture, boxes and about a thousand books. All for a school book fair starting next week.
I am filthy and sweaty, dehydrated and hungry (didn’t stop for a break, stupidly). My back and neck aches and one of my knees is pretty dodgy.
My next step is to run a hot bath with lots of bubbles, pour a nice big glass of wine, grab my current book, and disappear into the bathroom until the Canaussie arrives home with takeaway Thai.
