In retirement it is all too easy to put off various housekeeping tasks with the thought "I can do that tomorrow".
Today I realised that "I can do that tomorrow" can lead to many "tomorrows".
So I decided that today was tomorrow, and that I should wash, dry and iron my curtains which have been gathering dust and grime for many a day.
In fact, I have not washed them since May 2011 when I did so in anticipation of the visit of my brother Martyn and his son Sam.
(They did not notice!).
So all those over 700 "tomorrows" ended "today". I have beautifully washed, dried and ironed curtains.
Phew - the next "curtain washing tomorrow" will be in 2015
