Morning

Up 08 15. Orange juice; coffee in bed. Online.

Breakfast : granola.

Loo. Did the dishes, then showered and dressed.

Ecotricity Bill arrived : about £40 again, as expected. Need to try to compare with other suppliers’ offers.

Published TNS.

Elevenses : coffee; madeleines. Feeling lightheaded.

Continued working as above.

Afternoon

Lunch : tortelloni; green salad. Lost half a romaine heart (lettuce) and section of cucumber to rot.

Attended appointment with EA at Northgate House (Seetec Pluss). Turned out to be same EA again (appointment seemed be with another). Reviewed Action Plan which was printed for signing at the end of session. Discussed mental health briefly agreeing to schedule appointment to discuss specifically with EA (ahead of possible referral to Wellbeing Coach, I think). Was suggested I attend a Sector Insights session online (Microsoft Teams) : picked Digital and Technology (or something similar) from a list including Facilities Maintenance, Logistics (‘driving’) etc (as per introductory workshop attended lately). Was also suggested I attend appointment with a recruitment consultancy visiting next week. Said I’d look into it and revert with response, along with progress report. Not minded to at this stage unless particular reason. Made another appointment with EA in place of existing one and left.

Bought shoe brushes and polish at Bath Markets, and shower gel at Waitrose en route home. Don’t think I’ve cleaned tan brogues since I bought them – or my boat shoes. Now have kit to do the lot on a regular basis; won’t be buying a chamois leather to finish as another £10 and better see what financial position is at month end first (haircut outstanding).

Produced progress report for EA and WC; checked recruitment consultant website and diary and wrote to EA, adding link to May Day event (had mentioned the Bath Campaigns organised rally, march, and Bath Trades Council celebration before leaving).

Tea : black tea; shortbread; melon.

Took a nap as lightheaded and tired.

Evening

Supper : purple sprouting broccoli in white sauce; pancakes a l’orange.

Online in bed until lights out.
