Dream big

Wake from most unsettling dream, in which other family members have done all the chores and shower me with spontaneous gifts of  Exactly What I Wanted.  Am unable to judge whether this represents auspicious portent as other family members all currently away a) piloting Ukrainian ship on Thames  b) waitressing at pub next door c) doing Engineering Taster Course in Shropshire d) at sleepover with unsuitable friend.

Spend some time researching Inspiring Women to interview for new website ; try not to feel too disheartened by article about successful stylish fund manager with several children who spends her spare time baking cakes, doing Pilates and organising national charity campaigns.  Own morning not entirely unproductive, however; arrange Rotary Club’s inspection of  garden in readiness for summer’s Garden Safari, speak to neighbouring almslady about her broken outside light, and collect particularly impressive pile of dirty washing from children’s bedrooms.

Return from lunchtime walk and realise that have dropped house key somewhere En Route. Retrace footsteps, find key, and feel as intense a sense of achievement as if had just closed a multi-million pound deal.
