I’ve had an ur-productive day today.
I started work at 6:20 and stopped at 18:10. There were two breaks totalling 3 hours for loo, lunch and S4E6 of Peaky Blinders. Other than that it’s been full focus, highly productive deep work.
I didn’t open email, WordPress, or any other distractions.
I finished today what I’d planned to achieve in 2.5 days.
It’s been awesome!

Saturday morning: 50th parkrun. Maddie remembered. Thank you Maddie. Paint pickup from Screwfix on the way home.
Got a happy S for company in the afternoon.
Spent the evening on the road behind the house, painting the fence. It took nearly 4 hours for 8 panels. The wood hadn’t been painted in at least 7 years, if ever. It was drinking paint. A 9L can didn’t finish a single coat on the 8 panels.
A late dinner, some Glastonbury on the beeb. Late night.
Today began late, with an aching body.
Took boys for a short walk. Then went for a 70 mins easy run.
Showered, ate, washed the dishes in the sink, made a coffee, and read a book.
Around 7pm, I returned to the rear fence with the second can of paint. Spent the evening clearing the ivy at one end of the fence, then giving the fence a second coat (first coat for bits under the ivy and the bottom fifth).
Finished at 21:30. Cleaned the brush. Fixed (correctly this time) the shower holder. Took a shower. Shaved.
Now, having a pre-meal of peanut butter toast with red wine. Chicken schnitzel is in the oven.
It’s been a productive, happy weekend.
The only area of improvement is that I didn’t get to spend much time with Duds 🙁
