On son 2's first day back at school after a holiday I always feel totally washed out. I have learnt to reserve that day for myself, to just allow a little me-time.
So, today was the day. I had a phone tutorial for one of my OU courses at 9.30am. That was not as arduous as it sounds, because the course has only just started so really it was just a quick chat, to find out if I had everything and how I was going to approach the course. No problems.
Later son 1 and I wandered up to the local shops to make a few purchases, collect his prescription and post a letter. After lunch I wrote another flash fiction piece for today's response at Your Messages and then soaked in a hot bath. I was much more relaxed by the time son 2 arrived home.
Three notable things:
1. Last night I finished knitting a scarf which is to be an Xmas present for a friend.
2. The cable TV has been off nearly all day but Virgin Media are aware of the problem. So that's all right then. No rush guys.
3. The Your Messages project is making me enjoy my writing again. I never expected to have written a piece every day so far, but I'm loving it!
