I’m having a week off at the mo. No last minute commute from the kitchen to the laptop. Instead, a later hour and a leisurely breakfast with the Ever Lovely Mrs J. After that, perhaps a morning stroll with the hounds while the coffee kicks in.
With things being as they are, this will be our second break and a staycation. We’re not far from the back to school week and both kids seem to be happy in their rooms. Gaming, watching YouTube, talking to their mates, and sometimes all three at the same time.
I’m enjoying a break from the routine and while I like a change of scenery for walking and to wake the mind a little, I do like my own bed. The only slight snag is thinking oh, I could do X where X might be a house job I’ve not done yet. Mind you, I’ve not managed to report the two orchids in the bathroom, so I think the larger task of getting a new shed in the garden may have to wait.
With the COVID19 situation still very much unknown – and I note our great leaders have U turned on their advice again (this time of facemasks in schools) – I’m not sure much will be happening holiday-wise in October. Ah well, longer trousers may mean smoother pins, so there’s that feeling of normality to look forward to. Perhaps a holiday from the usual appearance.
