Only Tuesday?

I can't believe it's still only Tuesday. I think the week is dragging because I can see the sun outside and think I'm missing out on all that weather. Actually, I shouldn't moan (but of course I do) the view from my 4th floor office stretches out across the sea, the entire width of St Aubin's bay to the green hills beyond. Come to think of it, that probably makes it worse.

Anyway, R phoned today (as he does) to tell me that the poor postman has delivered yet another parcel. In fact I haven't had anything (apart from bills) delivered for ages, so this was expecially welcome. I'd found the site dotcomgiftshop and ended up ordering various bits and pieces, mainly for the shed. What I didn't tell R is that I'm also waiting for a box of books to arrive.

It's a wet, dreary day here - and I wish I was home! I hate being in the office on days like today.

After all these four day weeks, no wonder the week's going so slowly...it's really a Wednesday sort of

Lane said...

Your view sounds wonderful but I can see how it might make the day drag.

Love that site. I've just spent a virtual few quid:-)

HelenMHunt said...

Anna said...

btw... thanks for the hugs... :)))

Tuesdays are always slow. But when Wednesday comes, the week speeds along to the weekend, thank goodness! Hope the books arrive soon.

Liane Spicer said...

I love the mail! More books? Ooh, lucky you. I've banned myself from ordering anything in June.

JJ Beattie said...

I envy your view: mine is concrete.

In my experience it's never a good idea to point out that more books are due!

liz fenwick said...

Pat Posner said...

I get book-itis a lot, too, Debs. Don't think there's a cure for it.

Karen said...

The week is whizzing by too quickly for me, as usual!

When the books come, just pretend they're for research purposes :o))

Flowerpot said...

Nothing like ordering online is there?!

ChrisH said...

Soon you will be on first name terms with the postman and will be godmother to his children! Enjoy the book parcel!

Huh? What happened to my comment? What I said was your office view sounds gorgeous and oooooh a box of books? Lucky you!

Debs said...

dj - The view is gorgeous, though the last one only had a window above us and was like being in a tunnel.
