Not an exciting day for Samuel Pepys!

Friday 21 February 1661/62

All the morning putting things in my house in order, and packing up glass to send into the country to my father, and books to my brother John, and then to my Lord Crew’s to dinner; and thence to Mr. Lewes Philip’s chamber, and there at noon with him for business, and received 80l. upon Jaspar Trice’s account, and so home with it, and so to my chamber for all this evening, and then to bed.

Check out his diary here. There are some exciting elements to this diary, began at a crucial point in Britain’s history. Oliver Cromwell dead, his replacement overthrown, republican elements creeping in... Politics. Things never change. Oh, and by the way, it's pronounced Peeps! Ya, always trying to trip us up with the pronounciations...
