Busy day off: I've emptied and refilled the dishwasher, cleared off the kitchen counter, had a haircut, done all my and the boy's laundry, booked the cat an appointment for her shots at the vet, ordered a moto 360, watched the pilot of the Gilmore Girls, mailed Crisp's contact and computer permission forms to the school, am half way through walking the dog, and will go home and fold laundry, empty the dishwasher, shower and change and go upstairs to do a wedding rehearsal with Colin... Phew :)
