I enjoyed a long lie-in, listening to the Archers Omnibus on the radio, this morning. What could be better? Then, just as I was about to get up, N brought two mugs of coffee and the dogs upstairs, so I came back to bed for canine cuddles and caffeine – and it turns out that that was better.
And the good times just keep on coming – Scotland beat Ireland in the Six Nations Rugby – only by a whisker, and despite Ireland having the vast majority of the possession – and I sat watching a wet, muddy Murrayfield, and looking out at sunshine and blue skies here. Oh – and listening to N
mucking out cleaning No1 son’s room – N’s cousin is coming to stay this week, so we thought that it would be only right and proper to provide her with a hygienic bedroom in which to sleep! N has even mended No1 son’s bedroom door, which has never shut properly, and has vacuumed the hall, stairs and landing, as well as making a number of spiders homeless.
This means that I will have to dust, polish and vacuum through the downstairs before L comes, which even I should be able to do!
I feel peaceful today, not too black inside, and reasonably positive – though tired and headache-y – maybe because of the lie-in this morning, or maybe because I took a sleeping tablet last night – it might be a bit of a hang-over effect from that. But, as I had a good night’s sleep, without too many wakenings, I think it was worth it, on balance.
