The Body Electric

Today has been one of those days where I seem to be leaping around all over the place, unable to settle on just one thing, one idea, one task. I'm quite busy at work, but I'm feeling charged, fired up, almost like electricity is about to shoot out of my fingertips. (PS. How cool would that be?!) Not in a bad way, but I do feel a little unsettled.

Aside from work I've been thinking about a big pre-Spring clean out at home. Maybe listing a bunch of the things I never use on an email and circulating it amongst my friends to see if any of them could use any of it (note: include the Breville Health Grill that's been languishing in its box for, oh, probably a few years now!), or giving it to charity. Thinking about buying some new furniture, maybe even trawling the second hand shops for funky pieces I can restore or salvage.

It's a cool but clear and sunny day today, so it could be that there's a hint of Spring in the air. I think that maybe the new job has lit a small fire in my belly, making me think about planning, about to do lists, about simplifying, about streamlining and organising. It's not the first time I've felt like this of late, but it feels like the momentum is building. I've been kind of in limbo the past few months, uncertain about future income and coasting along without making any plans. Time to change that I think.

Hi Andrew, is there any way you can email me back without me putting my address up here? Channel 7 want to interview male knitters and I wanted to see if you are interested, and possibly the guys from the pub knitting. It would be easier to talk about this, perhaps it can wait till Saturday.

Go for it, kiddo! The best is yet to come!

Kerry, that sounds great. I won't be at SSK on Saturday (I'll be at a Christmas in July event some friends are throwing). I can give you all my details on Sunday though. Is that ok?

Thombeau, thanks for the encouragement! :)

Nothing like a new job to put a kick in your step. I didn't realise how boring I was until I starting 'acting up'.

The Other Andrew said...

M-H, you - boring?!! I find that hard to believe... :)

Kerry said...

Yes, that's fine.

Hey, if you're up for a second hand furniture shop trawl - say the ones on P'matta road let me know - I'm looking for a gateleg table.

The Other Andrew said...

Hey there 'trefoil! Yeah, I'd be up for that!! I'm out of town this weekend, but maybe in a couple of weeks?

Quatrefoil said...

Sounds great - I'll be in deepest Tasmania the week after next, but it would be nice to have an excursion to look forward to for when I come back.

It's a date!
