THAT time of year again. . .



I've hoovered out the cutlery drawer
spring-cleaned the chicken house (why DO they all sleep in one nesting box?)
groomed Bruce until he shone
made a casserole, a sundried tomato flan and minestrone soup
emptied my handbag- and put it all back again
crocheted another owl
replaced two missing buttons
eaten two bowls of porridge
drunk three cuppas
and polished my glasses (I actually thought I had cataracts!)

why?

what inevitable fate am I desperate to postpone?


yes, it's that time again. . .


End of Year Accounts
oh the joy of being self employed



and I may be gone some time. . .

Ha Ha hoovering the cutlery drawer - I do that !
I'd love to meet again ( we met briefely at your vintage fair once ) but I don't drive, I'm near Lymington & could get a train somewhere.
Very thoughtful of you thinking of me sad when Jess goes to America x

Good luck ;-)

Excellent distraction technique you've got going there! I'm very impressed. I'd love a Bruce to groom for hours but I usually end up cleaning the windows as a last resort rather than tackle what it is I'm meant to be doing.
You'll be done in a jiffy...apparently tax doesn't need to be taxiing

Cataracts - you had me laughing there :-)

End of year accounts - poor you, we've just had to pay this quarters VAT - Gulp!!

There's an award for you over at mine (if you have the time between sums).

Thank goodness Mr N does that! And a bit of washing up. Leaves everything else to me though!
(PS. Oh the relief when you realise -again - that it's NOT cataracts!)

Vintage Jane said...

Good luck! Thankfully, the Mr has a very good retired lady who 'does it' for us. M x

Thanks for the comment. Made me smile as usual. However I can't compare with your beautiful views or the fact that you can keep chucks! I look out over a blooming Asda at the front ( though my garden and summer house make up for it at the back). Glad to see you managed to climb down from the paperwork though. Xx

Reading posts I have missed and came across the sad but lovely one about your Mum. A talent for finding happiness in unlikely situations is a very good thing indeed - I'm glad you have it too.
Good luck with the accounts.
