Today I cleaned up my act at long last.
I had a shave, had a lovely bath and was fully prepared for a day of doing nothing. Well, I did do some exercise actually, so it wasn’t a completely wasted day. I feel so much more clean without my stubble though, it is glorious.
Now all I need to do is sort out my sleeping pattern and I will be back to my scrubbed up self. That might take a bit more effort though. I almost had it today, but I fell back to sleep for a couple more hours. I shall try harder tomorrow.
Today was also a day where my parents were clearing out the garage. We have a lot of stuff in there, so it is always pretty full. A lot of it brings back a lot of memories though. My father’s cavalry sword is in there: a giant broadsword that I used to not be able to lift.
There is always a strange fascination with such things, particularly since this was a real sword that would have been actually used a long time ago. It needs a lot of work to be display-worthy, but as it stands whenever I see it I can’t help but hold it for a bit. Apparently doing exercise with a sword is a good way to work some of your less used muscles.
Anyway, that is all for this evening. Hope everyone’s week is going swimmingly!
