I managed to escape any April Fool jokes this morning whilst being amused by several I came across from some of my favourite imaginative bloggers - Ang had a very believable one over at Tracing Rainbows, which I almost fell for until I looked at the lady's name a bit more closely and remembered how much Ang likes anagrams! Then there were the purple strawberries at An English Homestead....
I do love the beginning of a new month, but I am putting off thinking about targets and aims for the month until the weekend. I have Friday till Wednesday off work this weekend, taking advantage of the bank holidays as well as taking two days of my annual leave as well - but this means that my files are not likely to be called through by anyone else whilst I am off, so I am working hard this week, doing some hours of overtime to get through them all this week. I am really looking forward to the break at the weekend, and taking some time to recharge my batteries a little - not necessarily by doing nothing, but by getting some gardening done, some seeds sown and some hoeing done! Some fresh air and exercise will be lovely, and a little less sitting at the computer at work - bliss!
I am hoping to get a monthly meal planner done, as well as some rootling around in the freezers to see what is lurking in the depths! Keeping our dosh locked up here is really important. The savings will lose out a little this month as I think we need to get some more heating oil, and one of the fences is looking more than a little dodgy after all the wind we have had this week.
The EFG will be here in just three sleeps - we are a little excited......more than a little!
