Last night I was listening to Things to Make and Mend while cooking tea. I took the bin out and forgot to take my keys. I was locked out. It was raining. Fortunately I was able to follow someone back into the apartment building. I went up to my apartment and sat on the floor near the door.
I had half an hour to wait until my partner was due home.
Things to Make and Mend was tantalisingly close through the locked door but I couldn't get at it. I had no entertainment. I sat on the carpet, did some stretches, listened to the rain and the trains and thought about the Queensland floods. I was surprised how quickly the time went sitting quietly by myself.
Also, the kitchen didn't burn down so that was good.
