Yesterday was just perfect. I didn't have any plans except to take things slowly and have a restful day. Definitely no work, no decluttering, and no rushing about was the order of the day.
I didn't set the alarm and actually slept in until gone 10 o'clock, which is almost unheard of for me. Lately I haven't been sleeping properly and usually wake ridiculously early. I spent most of the morning finishing letters to friends, proper paper and ink letters, not email - I love sending and receiving hand written letters and don't do it often enough, although one of the recipients doesn't have a computer so I always write to him.
Lunch was a UFO (unidentified freezer object), a random selection which turned out to be fish pie. From the state of the freezer I think I went through a bad patch of not labelling things properly! Anyway, it was a pleasant surprise and very tasty too. I plonked myself in front if the TV for the afternoon and finished watching Little Women. I can't decide whether I like this latest adaptation of the book or not. Did anyone else watch it?
After that I sank in the depth of that great time waster known as Facebook, eventually getting sidetracked by a recommendation for a book series where the first book was free on Kindle, so I downloaded it. The book, 'Surviving the Evacuation, Book 1, London' by Frank Tayell is not my usual choice. It features zombies and is a genre that usually bores me stiff, but as it was only 196 pages long I read it through in one go and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I've now bought the second book but am not sure that I'll manage to read the entire series, which is currently twelve books, though if they are all so short it shouldn't be too time consuming.
A long soak in the bath followed by an early bedtime and a good night's sleep meant that I woke this morning feeling refreshed. I feel ready to face the week ahead, whatever it brings!
