Well, maybe not all, but I do love making plans and having projects. It's another thing which makes me feel alive.
I like the research, the decision making, the anticipation and finally (though they don't always come to fruition) the execution.
I currently have garden plans, fitness plans, travel plans and a wardrobe update plan is slowly taking shape....
Even a plan for the morning or the next hour helps shape my time and my thoughts, and gives me a sense of purpose.
When I go to the city I am doing diligent research to find a substitute for my favourite restaurant which has closed down. Carluccio's was ideal for me when I was travelling. positioned between the bus station and the railway station, on a level, roomy and table service - all helpful when you have luggage, the food was good with regular small changes to the menu to keep it interesting, the staff were always friendly (I wonder if they all found new jobs) and the street was in view so you could watch the world go by. They also sold a good range of italian foods which made great gifts if I was going to stay with someone. And they never made me feel hurried. Perfect in other words!
So far, and several mediocre and one very bad meal later, I have not found a good alternative.
Zizzi was good yesterday (belated Mother's Day meal with my daughter - best salted caramel ice cream!) but this branch is out of the centre of the city in Ashton Lane in the West End.
If you have any recommendations I'd be glad to hear of them....
So, that plans do you have that are making you feel alive?
And if you haven't got any can you make one?
Even a little one?
