Tales from the bin area.

A bit over a month ago I found Keith Richard’s autobiography in the communal bin area (it wasn’t in the bin it was in a plastic bag of other books & DVDs on the ground). I took the book because I’d previously wanted to read it. Then a couple of weeks ago I found a working watch in the recycling bin. It was poking out from a box of letters. I had been thinking about treating myself to a new watch as mine had been playing up for a while. One of the good things about this watch is that it glows in the dark so when I can’t sleep at night I know exactly what time it is. Who knew that the most successful aspect of my life would centre around the communal bin area?

Swings & roundabouts.

On Saturday mornings I help primary school children with their reading (officially I’m a Literacy Intervention Tutor). The venue I’ve been working at since September has ended so in the last few weeks I’ve moved to a new location meaning I’m dealing with new children and a new co-ordinator. On the plus side the new location is within walking distance. The previous location meant getting a train there and a train back which ate into my very small wage. The downside of this new venue however is that I have to walk along a 6 lane carriageway, so although I’m up financially I’m down in the lungs.

What would you pay £660 to do?

My Housing Association found there was a service charge deficit going back 4 years. They recently acknowledged they were a bit rubbish (paraphrasing) so knocked off the years 2014/15 & 15/16. These happened to be the years with the least amount of deficit – £110 in total. This now leaves the deficit at £660, which makes me think, what job would you want me to do for £660?

Do you brush your teeth at work?

I’ve gone a bit teeth-tastic on this #1minblog.

  • Do you have a dentist?
  • Do you use a manual toothbrush or an electric one?
  • If you use a manual one do you squirt one dollop of toothpaste or cover the whole toothbrush?
  • Apparently you’re not supposed to rinse your mouth out with water after brushing but does anyone adhere to this?
  • In the morning do you brush your teeth before or after you’ve eaten/ had a drink?
  • Do you brush your teeth at work?
  • Do you use mouthwash?
  • There’s a helpline number on tubes of toothpaste but have you ever rung it?

And Finally

  • Why does my dentist tell me to relax when doing treatment on me? Having a whirring thing & a scrapey thing in my mouth isn’t how I generally relax.

Screen time to bedtime.

In an attempt to get better quality sleep (I can get to sleep quite easily but I wake a few hours later) I’ve decided to increase the time between using a screen (computer/phone) and me going to bed.

One problem with this is the only time I have to do my own thing is after my boy goes to bed and I go to bed, a time that is getting shorter & shorter. It’s also a time that is also filled with eating dinner, loading the dishwasher and making lunch/ironing clothes for work.

Having said that, the work I currently do in this time has never led to anything so maybe it won’t be too much of a sacrifice.

Feel free to let me know the amount of time you leave between last using a screen and going to bed. Cheers.

A flaw in my system

One of the few things I’m proud of is my things-to-do-list. It’s handwritten on a folded piece of A4 paper with different sections allocated for different aspects of my life. The only flaw in my system is that things that are neither a priority or fun can stay on lists for quite a long time, like fixing my boy’s scooter or sorting the toilet flusher. ( Don’t worry the toilet still flushes but the plastic pusher bit has come off).

Feel free to tell me about your things-to-do-list. Cheers.
