Very mixed weather this week, but a lot of cloud and greyness.  Bit of sun late yesterday and some now about 11.20am. Hard to know what to wear and so you think like an onion, lots of layers.  i went and returned some library books yesterday and although the clouds threatened rain, it didn't thankfully.  It's a bit of a trek into town just to do that, even with my scooter, so had a Mcdonald's lunch [fillet of fish & chicken nuggets] and an illicit small icecream, and had a tool around the market [every day].
i was going to the Vintage & Homemade Fair in MK on Saturday but something made me check my buspass - it's run out!  i worked it out, the return ticket to MK is around £13, taxis to & from bus approx £10, lunch maybe £5, so thats around £30 before i even hit the Fair - makes it a no-go this time; maybe the Christmas one?
i spent some time online going through the bus pass renewal application [i had to find a photo of me and chop it down to passport size, which took a while]; i've have no idea how long that will take, but pretty damn sure i won't get another before Saturday.  i always use my bus pass as it's free to lots of places, even out to Oxford.
i have a doctors day today - diabetic clinic at 2.30pm [main office closed] and back at 6.45pm for a flu jab. i need to take my full Sharps box back to them and try and get a new tool that pricks your finger, so you can test your blood sugar. i'm on my second one. Sometimes it doesn't work and is tempremental!  Not sure if it is the spring that is faulty.  i'll see if they have another; depending of if there is someone in the office the second time.
Like the meme KazzyCee did, so i'll do it too.

5 things you’ll find in my laptop bag / or bag:
Gad, where do i start!
My bag has lots of pockets storing lots of stuff - including phone, wallet & coin purse and that just part of the outside ones!  More in the two internal ones too
5 things you’ll find in my room / abode:
which room?  Sitting room had LOTS of books & DVDs, bird feeding supplies, piles of things to do [some sewing, cleaning] including a chair overflowing with STUFF and paintings propped against cupboards & furniture [can't put hangings in the block walls] - so general chaos!
5 things that make me feel happy:
sunshine, going out to eat with friends, getting new books, spending a day at the auctions, keeping in touch with old friends
5 things I’m currently into:
Reading, always
Trying to clean up front Garden [i'm not really fit to do that, so i do little bits at a time or until my back says SIT DOWN!!
5 things on my to-do list:
Having a pre-Winter clear out of clothes etc for charity shops.  Just had a massive old book one - now i can see the bedroom floor!
A sort/clear out of my spice & herb cupboard
Same for some of the other kitchen cupboards, filled with things i no longer use or indeed have only used once.

Constantin Brâncuși, The Sleeping Muse , 1910; Laurie Lipton's 'Empress of Death' and the wonderful Carl Larsson's 'Apple Harvest' 1903.  And who wouldn't want to live here?

i know how you feel! i do manage to keep my handbag under control though and have a clear out of receipts etc every time i go shopping or to the Post Office [most of my visits are to return items]. i have small stuff in the outside pockets but not much in the central ones. It is a cross-body one so i can use both hands on my scooter.

I have a reputation for silting up...especially in the garden. I don't know how I do it...I like things just so really. I do have two bags of compost in my shopping trolley, but it's so it'll weigh it down so I can lean on it when I'm walking over the road to the shops. :)
