Sometimes on the way to your dream,

you get lost and find a better one.

lazy days

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.


  1. Sometimes being a little poorly is the medicine you need. Glad you're feeling better but a day in pyjamas . . I'm so up for it!

  2. Rest is perfect for what ails you ;)

  3. I missed the rain with the bins but nearly froze to death in the wind. 11 degrees in Alice Springs yesterday, they'll have to rename it the Blue Centre.

  4. Ladies, I could have used a few extra days in pyjamas, it was delicious slothing about, but rent must be paid, so hi ho, hi ho, it's back to work I go.
