4 degrees rising to 15!
Rose early to listen to the replay of E Herv Eker's 'Masterclass' on MindValley. If possible, it was even lighter on content than that of Christie Sheldon and lasted two and a half hours. The joy of the replay is being able to bypass the obligatory sob story (76 minutes) and then, what a surprise, he makes a breakthrough by embracing the idea that he can be spiritual and really, really, really (he loves repetition) rich. He also gives us the nugget that your route to success must match who you are. Much, much later, he does a visualisation of being at a fork in the road and going in the right hand direction and all is bad etc etc and how does that make you feel and then back to the fork in the road and take the left hand road and all is wonderful. And to take the right fork, you have to buy his Spiritual Laws of Money products and they are nearly 300 dollars. Apparently 147 people signed up for this crap on the first day. Oh, sad and desperate people. If Eker is indeed a multi, multi (counted to ten on his fingers) millionnaire and desperately wants to help people, why the fuck is he charging them? The first step to being a millionnaire is to have your scruples cut out and burn them. Decided to write a help book myself.
Dropped off utility vehicle for MOT then back home to drop off OH and go to meet today's clients.
Hung around in a car park, waiting for the clients, and they were waiting in a different car park. Finally met up and took them to the house and they were impressed by the interior, which is indeed lovely. They were not so keen by the barricades erected by the frankly strange neighbour and also there were quite a few trees. They are selling because there are a lot of trees and the guy is fed up of picking up the leaves. We are there for well over an hour. They are going to draw up a list of favourite properties to revisit next week and will then make a decision. I suggest two other properties and send them the details.
Back home and find OH just about to take the dog out and did I want to trail around in the mud with him. No I didnt. Not pleased to find that, yet again, no dishes washed and crap all over the floor. Cleaned up, in bad mood. Filed papers that were trailing around everywhere. Looking at my meter readings for the rental units, I really hope I have read them incorrectly because the difference between last years consumption and this one is absolutely vast and over 1000 euros.
Made chili and did the VAT return online after having turned out all my bags and pockets to find the maximum of chargeable receipts.
Down at the gym, my subscription card had disappeared and no one was available to help so I took the card of a person with a similar sounding name and dived into the blissfully warm and frothing waters. The lifeguard did notice and I said it was a mistake and he said OK and went back to throwing the bikes in the small pool for the aquabike session. They landed with some force and large waves splashed over the people who were still doing lengths. Sod health and safety. You have just got to love it.
Did 30 lengths and the sun shone on the water and steam rose off the wavelets. Heaven. Watched GBSB. Very difficult waistcoat as first task then some brilliant relooking projects and then a 3d construction exercise. Puffing, pouting black haired lady bunged off. Men are very strong contenders this year.
