    My day is completely free!

    Might go out for a carvery later, followed by a snooze
    Hell in a handcart either way.

    Just got to get rid of a few hundred primroses and my whole weeks will be free.I say free but it depends on what the "boss" wants me to do.
    I'd rather be an Optimist and be proved wrong than a Pessimist and be proved right.

    Back home for a snooze then a small whiskey and a round up of the week's news!

    Coffee with Mum this morning...I read aloud whilst she crochets...currently reading Black Beauty (a German translation!)

    I am eating my way through the freezer - (preparing to move home) - so chicken for dinner with assorted veggies. Fruit and homemade joghurt for pud....sandwich, cuppa and slice of bakewell tart for tea.

    I may do some needlework this afternoon...and I should send a birthday-greeting e-mail to my aunt

    Early shower, mooch around in PJs and possibly do a jigsaw, or some of my adult-colouring-book, ...maybe watch Crystal Maze if I can be bothered.

    Not paying for lunch or petrol!
    Walking and snoozing is free!
    The whiskey was a gift!
    I haven't got the heating on yet but if I light the fire, I'm burning logs from the garden!
    Dinner tonight is reduced left-over roast chicken and pickings from the fridge!

    Plus I've got 5 days Holiday pay

    Just paying the overheads!!

    We have the next best thing to children at home, a geriatric mother in law that lives next door.

    Freedom is a state of mind..I can feel just as liberated/limited in prison as I can dancing naked through Daffodils on a warm summers day.

    Actually a Carvery sounds like a good Idea.

    I don't think I could survive a whole day with nothing to do

    I've been a bit under the weather with a cold since Friday and it's knocked me for 6 a bit. On Friday I did very little as I felt so rubbish but I still felt fidgety, like I wanted to get up and do something, I just didn't have the energy.

    Feeling better now and although I could start my own snot factory I've been to work, walked the dog twice (one more walk tonight to do) and done all my housework.

    However, I will be heading off for a snooze very soon

    Love Sundays! We had bacon and eggs about 9am, did a bit of housework, watching tv and mucking about on the laptop til about 12, when I finally had a shower and got dressed, cleaned out my makeup bag, more laptopping/tv, just finished washing up after a very nice roast beef dinner, and I`m enjoying a large latte, knowing that the rest of the day will be pure bone-idle laziness. Bliss!
    Hope everyone else is enjoying their Sunday.

    How early is too early to go to bed?

    I wasn't feeling the whiskey so I opted for a glass of red when I got in -leftovers from last week's leaving do - got my circulation going and now I'm glowing and euphoric after a very gusty long walk on the beach.

    Saturdays are usually quite busy for me - catching up on things that I don't get a chance to do in the week due to working quite long hours.

    I like to get all my jobs done on a Saturday so that I can actually have Sunday as a real rest day - that said, I normally have stuff to do like getting stuff ready for work!

    Just chilling and wondering what time I'll wake up tomorrow . .

    Feeling well rested - I don't think you can put a price on that!!
