Whew, what a week !

It's been a loooong week. I've been on the "early" shift at work, getting up around 6am for a 7:30 start, and I've been on call for work too, which has given me a 2:30am call on Tuesday morning, 2:50am call on Wednesday morning, and calls at 4:30, 5:50, 6:15 and 6:50 on Thursday morning. Took rwrylsin to the airport on Monday evening, and will be heading off to pick her up again shortly (she was down in London to see the Queen for a training course). Fenced yesterday. And in my free time, I've been tidying the house.
You see, when rwrylsin is away, I like to surprise her a little by doing a little frantic tidying. Unfortunately, she's caught on to this, so on Sunday she boldly stated that I could surprise her by tidying up the house a bit while she was away this week. There were only two possible responses to that, of course - do absolutely nothing, or go berserk and try to tidy far more than she could possibly imagine me doing. I chose the latter option, of course, so I've been buzzing around completely rearranging the shelves in the lounge, tidying up the coffee table, sorting Lego, tidying my computer desk, vacuuming every room in the house, washing jumpers, washing dishes, going through stacks of papers on the dining table, finding the floor in various places, and getting rid of lots of dust. Whew. I think I've earned a restful weekend of nothing but playing games ... so instead, we're off to Largs on Sunday for a fencing tournament. Oh well ...
