We had a week off.....to take time to wind down.
To catch up on jobs.
To take our time over things.
To stay in your dressing gown (and yes given that the weather has been awful I am still wearing a dressing gown) until late morning and then dress in 'home' clothes not 'work clothes'.
Driving in the green luscious countryside and idly thinking about where we could move to, or consider a tiny little weekend place perhaps?.....dreaming.
Sorting out the garage.
Tidying the no mans land at the end of the garden.
Clearing out the shed.
Unpicking a cardigan that I knitted long ago that just wasn't right......and then re-knitting it (well I have done the front and the back...just about to start the sleeves.)
Visiting a gallery midweek.
Asking for a quote for bespoke Roman Blinds for 4 bedrooms in John Lewis and thinking that the thousands of pounds quoted was an awful lot for what is essentially a few metres of plain material and some sticks.
Sitting in the garden in the sun with my kids on a Friday.....felt very strange.....we can only usually get together at the weekends.......this being at home in the week is something that I would really like more of.
Mostly the weather has been grey and wet and cold, but it mattered not.
We have been at home, not at work.
Back on to the hamster wheel next week.
S'all good though.....in July we have another week off.
Bring it on.
