Friday, May 9th, 2003

As I was sitting down I became aware that the temperature was neither too hot nor too cold. This being the case I made no adjustments to the temperature control on the central heating.

Turning my head to the right     April 16

Making plans to wash up some empty glasses    March 4
As I was looking around my house I noticed that there were a number of empty glasses. I picked them up and took them to the kitchen, where I will wash them up at some point. This will probably happen tomorrow morning, though it could happen tomorrow afternoon or evening. I have made no definite decision at this point in time.

Tapping my foot    February 26
I heard some music on the radio. It had quite a beat to it, so I started tapping my foot in time with the music. When the tune came to a finish I stopped.

Quite cold    February 19
I went out this evening and found that the temperature had dropped somewhat. If I had been wearing more clothes I might have felt a little warmer. If I had been wearing less clothes I might have felt a little colder.

Getting slightly darker    February 9
This afternoon it was quite light outside. As time went on it began to get slightly darker. In a little while I may well need to turn some lights on. If I don’t it may not be that easy to see what I’m doing.
comments

The internet has quite a lot on it    February 7

Reading part of the newspaper    January 26
I read a few articles from one section of the newspaper. I found the TV guide and had a look at that. Being a Sunday newspaper there were a good number of other sections, I may get onto reading them, or I may not.
comments

Nobody walking along the pavement    January 21

comments

Looking out of the window    December 6
I decided to stop what I was doing for a minute or two and look out of the window. Nothing much was happening outside, but I decided to carry on looking for a couple of minutes anyway. When this time had elapsed I turned away from the window and continued my other activities.
comments

Listening to a compact disc    December 4
I put a compact disc into the machine and played track 1. I then forwarded it to track 9 and played that and tracks 10, 11 and 12. Later on I may play track 3 and 4 and perhaps 18 depending on how the mood takes me. I will miss out track 2 as I don’t like it that much.
comments

Hole    December 2
Some workmen had dug a hole in the road in order to maintain some essential services. A barrier and warning notice had been placed around it to prevent the general public from falling in.
comments

Walking along    December 2
Whilst walking along I noticed that there were some cars driving along the road. Some were going one way, others the other. I kept to the pavement for my own safety.
comments

Visiting a Cafe    December 1
I went into a cafe the other day. Upon entering the establishment I went up to the counter and ordered a drink and paid for it. They had tables with chairs arranged around them, so I was able to find a place to sit down to consume my beverage. When I had finished my drink I left.
comments

Socks    November 30
I found that my feet were getting a little chilly earlier. So I went to find some socks, and when I had found them I put them on.
comments

Toaster    November 29
I plugged the toaster into the socket and turned it on. It didn’t seem to be working – this was because I had turned the kettle on at the mains and not the toaster. Upon noticing my mistake I turned the toaster on at the mains and it began to function correctly.
comments

Travelling    November 28
Sometimes I find that a journey can take a long time, particularly if there is a lot of traffic. The best ways to make the journey shorter are to go when there is less traffic or choose a destination that is nearer to your starting point.
comments

The Weather    November 28
It is cloudy today, but there are some breaks in the cloud. This means that when the sun shines through these breaks in the cloud it is sunny, but when the sun is behind the clouds it isn’t. Perhaps we will have some rain later, or perhaps we won’t, I don’t know.
comments

Watching television    November 27
I turned on the TV to BBC1 earlier. The programme didn’t interest me, so I turned over to to BB2, then ITV, then channel 4 and channel 5 in order to see what was on. Eventually I made the decision to watch a programme on channel 4. Before sitting down to watch I adjusted the volume to make sure it wasn’t too loud or too quiet.
comments

Washing up    November 27
I did some washing up this evening. I put some water into the bowl, but it was too hot. So I put a little bit of cold in. This brought the water to the correct temperature.
