I am at present,shall we say 'indisposed' albeit temporarily,due to the fact that just over a week ago I underwent a little 'surgery' I was told by my consultant that the down time after the procedure would be two weeks,so here i am confined to barracks and now that the worst is over I am actually enjoying it!( mind you this time last week had you offered me a gun I would have shot myself) But there is something very liberating about being stuck indoors,I have not been taking Lucy to school,her lovely big sister has been doing the honours,I have been unable to work and my brain has sort of slowed down! i could get used to this,I putter around the house all morning,I make lists of what needs to be done,I make tea in a teapot,as opposed to a quick teabag in a cup jobbie,I am catching up on my reading,watching 'The darling buds of may' every afternoon on tv and tomorrow I have 'Brideshead revisited' lined up on dvd! You know life has been so hectic for me this year that I sort of fell out of love with my home for a while,I just had so many other things going on that I forgot how much joy I derive from being in this humble little abode,but this past week when I have been forced into doing nothing much,I have rekindled the romance,I have cleaned and polished,vaccumed and waxed,lit candles and scented the rooms with cinnamon and orange oils,all done,I hasten to add,at a most leisurely pace.Back to work on Thursday i am afraid,once again I need to venture out into the real world and make a living,but Oh how much I shall look forward to coming home!
