I know that when the Knight of Pentacles walks into my day that it will be one of the mundane. He's kind of slow but determined, a little dull but dependable, and a little stiff but strong. He is a sturdy, stable and reliable energy. For today, he hasn't dragged me out for an exciting time. Instead, he has helped me and my boyfriend fix the drawer under the bed, flip the mattress and put new gingham bedding on the pillows and duvet. This card is practical and concerns practical things.
I finished the work at the primary school yesterday. As great and enthusiastic as the kids were, they were a bit over-excitable in the afternoon. Because we had set up the exhibition to start after lunch, I had thought that the latter part of the day would be a doddle. Not so. Many of them run a muck; meaning that I had to step in and raise my voice on quite a few occasions. The afternoon was a success, even if exhausting.

I was so tired when I got back from working. But even though I wanted to sleep, I had to get on with stuff; I needed to have a bath, have dinner, and get ready, since we were meeting Kate to go along to an old mate's birthday party. It was a quiet one in the hostess's garden, which turned out to be very pleasant. She'd only invited a handful of people. I didn't drink again, but I wasn't the only one. As before, I really enjoyed the evening without alcohol.
