There is a reasonable argument that my new sleep routine (get up at 7:10am every day, bright lights) has actually made a positive difference even though it is still hard (and I did sleep in a bit on Friday).
Also, now that I think about it,
* had brunch with friends
* bought some new clothes
* cooked 2 dinners
* washed an alarmingly huge pile of dishes
Who knew it was possible for me to actually do things?!
This long weekend I:
* finished making a big garden bed (just need to get soil delivered to fill it)
* improved some lawn drainage (hopefully),
* made some simple French cleat tool storage racks
* cut most of the parts for 5 workshop draws.
Very satisfying to complete some things and get to know some of my new tools. Most productive I've been in months.
With a thunderstorm outside (so very little natural light) things are now a little too high-contrast. This is from my "web cam" (actually a full-sized camera) with my silly new light setup.
Ideally I would get a bulb with colour temperature control for the light on the wall. Maybe one day.
Turn on the bright lights.
I’ve got to imagine #borisjohnson winning a no-confidence vote with his chums (because no alternative) is a short term victory and possibly a good thing for his opposition. No “fresh start” for the Tories. If only the opposition was more coherent/competent.
"In 1972, when the first Stockholm summit was hosted, Earth Overshoot Day, the date by which we’ve used up a year’s worth of sustainable resources, was December 10, later analysis showed. Last year it was July 29. This year’s, to be announced on Sunday, will no doubt fall much earlier in July. But those dates are for all countries, with poor developing countries with low footprints heavily subsidising wealthy developed ones."
Good article featuring my old pal Bridget. I couldn’t agree with her more.
This doesn't mean you might not have a plan for what happens if that button is clicked, or that "bad thing" happens - but it is not the same plan.
