I've had the most relaxing day.
Woke at the usual 4am, remembered I wasn't going in to work and went straight back to sleep.
Up again at 6.30, wandered into the lounge, turned on the heater and the i-pod, curled up on the couch in my fluffy pink dressing gown with a book, glass of juice and bowl of dry cocoa pops. Dry, for the crunch. Ate a couple of cold&flu tabs. Rested and read.
Had a nap while the music played. Didn't switch on the TV at all today. As I'm typing this at 6.15pm, the music is still playing.
At some point I showered and dressed.
Coffee and raisin toast for lunch. More cold&flu tabs. Finished my book, chose another, read until I fell asleep. Still on the couch. No appointments, no other commitments.
Lovely way to spend a wintry day.
Stood by various windows watching the rain which has been steadily falling here since about 8pm last night. At 3pm, the rain became hail for almost 5 minutes, then there was a brief burst of thunder. After that, about a half hour with no rain, so I took the opportunity and wheeled the bins out to the footpath. The driveway down by unit one was a lake of water, had to manouvre the bins around the edge.
Got back inside just in time, down she came again!.
Homemade pumpkin & sweet potato soup for dinner.
Feeling much better, so back to work tomorrow.
