It’s an absolutely glorious day today – the weather is clear and warm with bright sunshine and a cloudless blue sky. The cats are dozing in the streams of sunlight that are coming through the window, it’s quiet and peaceful and I have had a good night’s sleep. I’ve been a domestic goddess this morning and there are already two loads of clean clothes drying on the line outside.
I’m still trying to relax – after spending months feeling anxious and tired I know that it is going to take a little bit of time to wind down – but it’s certainly a good step in the right direction. I don’t have many plans for the day – I’m meeting my best friend for breakfast later, I fully intend to have a long, hot bubble bath and I am going to continue with the my blogging endeavours. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting back into my writing routine – I caught up with people that I haven’t spoken to in a long time, I’ve had fun reading lots of thoughts and ideas and one of my posts was featured on Mumsnet Bloggers again yesterday. I’ve also spent some time developing my other social networking sites…
Check them out – I’d love to see you there!
The rest of the week is looking to be just as fabulous. I am taking my mum to see The Commitments in London at the weekend – it’s her favourite film and we were disappointed when we discovered that we had missed the musical adaptation last year, but I found out that it has returned after a European tour and I have surprised her with tickets. I have also managed to book us into a hotel right in the centre of the city (very convenient for walking home after the show rather than navigating the Tube late at night) and as an extra special treat I have reserved us a table for a late lunch at The Ivy, a Michelin starred restaurant that is famous for it’s popularity with celebrities. I’ve always wanted to go and I’m really looking forward to it…
What about you guys? What are you looking forward to this week?
What a great, positive post. I’m going to see Into the Woods on Thursday night, and I’m super excited!
Ooh that sounds fun! Have a great time!
Wow, you got quite the awesome list. The only thing I’m looking forward to is my weekend, lol. I know, I’m lame.. I am okay with it though. 🙂
Thanks! That’s not lame – I look forward to the weekends every week!
What a wonderful present for your mom – and you will have so much fun in London ………. let me know what you eat ……… I’m into food ……… going back on the diet, getting off the pounds ………
Am looking forward to getting some laundry done, do some “deep” cleaning of the house, bake…. all these mundane chores will be be an enormous task once I start work again next month (after maternity break)…. Sigh!
And yeah, hope to get my hair done….cut the darned think off!
Greetings human. It sounds like today you’re living the life of a kat. Good fur you! Kats are never anxious (unless there’s a creature after them)!
Haha! Thank you – hope you are doing well! Haven’t spoken in ages!
Same here! I’ve spent all my time plotting…uh, I mean, HIDING FROM the Creature… What about you?
Sounds fab. I need a holiday. Maybe I should be a teacher. Haha bet that really winds you up when people say that about teachers holidays 😉
Not at all – i love it when people say that to me 😉
All that sounds perfect!
We’re going to climb Mount Baldy this Friday, and then Saturday we’re going to see How to Train Your Dragon 2, if it’s still in the theaters. 🙂
That sounds lovely! Have a great time!
I’m looking forward to being done with doing our freezer storage for the next few months.
Haha! I can understand why!
