There is frost on the car and it is dark and cold outside. The tea is hot and the toast is tasty. I would like not to go to work today...to just stay here and read and crochet (must finish babette blanket..) and perhaps put a film on to watch. This is of course madness. Not watching a musical, no that is never madness...always cheers me up no end....but contemplating playing hookey and hiding away here in my home like I used to do when I should have been taking exams at school.
Strange how the arc of the story of my life is so clear there.
Anxious child? wait till everyone is out and then return from walk to school to guard the house.
Fuck up your Grammar school education.
Have no career.
Work for many many many years in crap job.
Middle aged woman? now everyone has left the house I would like to stay in it and not go to crap job.
Breakfast over. Decision made.
