Timing, hard at work, and extra sleep.

1) The door bell rings before 9am. It is the postman with a parcel containing the yarn I ordered yesterday afternoon! The timing couldn’t have been more perfect, as I needed one of the new balls of yarn this afternoon.

2) While I iron, K takes the kids outside to do some gardening – they lift the decorative stones, dig up the dead roots of the tree which came down in the storms, replace the membrane, and plant 3 tiny new conifers.

3) I begin the day with a lie-in, and I begin the evening with a post-prandial nap – clearly the events of the past week have caught up with me, and I look forward to feeling all the better for the extra sleep!
