Day Off to do Nothing

After four days of cleaning out my town house, I woke up this morning after a broken night's sleep (seeing that I got a very early night and found that it was hard to sleep when I did that), I thought today would be a good one to just sit around the place and do nothing but absolutely needed to be done. 
So far, I've put out some laundry, wiped up a little, checked the mail (both PO Box and e-mail), did some internet work and changed Little Miss Stevie's papers over; as I have been ignoring the cleaning of her cage lately.  Otherwise, the rubbish guys arrived on time today (yay!  That's a first in two weeks!) and all the bins were emptied.  My bin was about half a foot from being completely full because of my clean out.  So, I was looking forward to having it emptied so I could fill it again next time. 
I've put up my photo on 365 Project, been on Bookcrossing and caught up with the threads on there and looked through a few blogs I normally look through; and it's only 11am or so.  And seeing I have the day to myself, I might get in and practice the piano today or get into reading 'Owls Do Cry' by Janet Frame or 'The Confessions of a Shopaholic' (which I began a few nights back.  I haven't read anything outside for almost a week because I've been cleaning and cleaning.  
Yesterday, I took on the hardest room - my home office.  I didn't think I could do it, but I did.  It was something that took a lot of effort for me not to walk away from halfway through; and you know, it really did work out to be a good thing I didn't.  Usually, this room does it for me.  I find it's too much effort, there's too much here for me to go through and I just can't get into it.  However, I knew that if I didn't, I would never have it done. 
Another thing I did yesterday was find a good frame for my photo of my Trafalgar Tour in 1997.  It took a bit getting the photo in - and straight - but now it's up on a wall behind glass after fourteen years of being in a crappy cardboard frame.  I had been meaning to get it behind glass for such a long time; and now it is it's a load off my mind, and I've been able to throw out the old frame.  I've hung in my living room, giving it pride of place next to the front door where I can see it when I come home; and it'll be the last thing I see each day I leave the house.  My Darcy Doyle print is now upstairs in my bedroom; and looks pretty good there too.  I never thought of putting it there; but am finding it compliments the room really well.
Tomorrow, I've got a busy day out and about at the Logan Art Gallery... this is why I'm not doing anything exciting today; and just relaxing.  I hope to be home early enough tomorrow to put up a photo on 365 Project and get in and work on my blogs.  Until then, I better be going.  Take care, keep safe and warm and remember, I'm always here.
