I left the house before 7.30am for a second attempt at a meeting which I'd sadly missed the first time it had been scheduled for 8am. I didn't want to screw this meeting up a second time, the outcome might be useful.
Though unsatisfied by sleep, I was awake enough to determine that the meeting was not a success, nor was it worth getting out of bed for. Frustrating. I tried hard to make it work, but in the end, it just didn't. Still, at least I paid back the debt of having missed it first time around.
Following a good night out, the day can seem dull, especially when it starts about 2 hours too soon. I mooched through the day, cheering up as afternoon came around and the doors beckoned me to leave. Lunch was also a good break from the afternoon.
Home was a waypoint between me and my bike. Actually, the guitar, ignored yesterday, was tried out and turned out to be quite a pleasant instrument. It will be a friend in August, I hope.
I cycled about 9 miles, taking in some air and feeling less like it was any effort. I feel like the healthy eating and exercise have had some effect on me again. This is how I want to be. The cycle ride ended in Tesco and a chance to stock up on supplies for the evening.
Then home to record a piece of music that it turns out I'm totally ill-equipped to play. It took way too many takes to get the piano part down. The bass part is coming along, but I just don't play in B minor and D, especially when I wrote it in A minor and C and transposed the piano electronically. My brain is not functioning quite right. I've had to pause these efforts to save my sanity.
I will have to come back to it after the weekend. The week hots up any minute.
The start of the rollercoaster month which takes me to Edinburgh.
