Sunday: Steak, budgeting and a lack of hot water.

As you’re no doubt aware if you’ve been reading this blog longer than 10 minutes, I dislike Sundays. For me they’re little more than a waiting room for the transit between the weekend and work. Today I’m not doing much, as is usual for a Sunday. 

My only real task today is cooking steak, a labour of love. I’m having a steak and cheese baguette for dinner. Other than that I have trousers, shirts, ties etc to launder and iron. I’ve sat down and budgeted, I should be left with a nice figure at the end of the month even after I’ve purchased everything I need.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: if I keep hitting such figures I’m going to require an accountant. Now I can’t wait until my actual paydays. It’s nice knowing where all my money is going and what will be left but I have yet to receive it. It’s the final week before payday and I’m just waiting.

Other than that I’m cleaning my space. I gave in and purchased a fan which I’m not sure was a great investment because of the temperamental nature of English weather. Last night it felt like money well spent. The worst part of today is the fact I don’t have hot water.

It being summer you wouldn’t think that a problem but the cold is ice cold, colder than my drinking water. Almost impossible to shower under without dancing and making a series of noises to the amusement of everyone else here. Boil the kettle and towel wash it is…

My problem after all this is that there is very little to do here and even less company. Unfortunately I can’t have anyone over right now or I’d invite my favourite woman here for steak, wine and a good time.

I should start preparing the steak.
