It has been an absolute pleasure to enjoy a true weekend “off”.
By the time I did get back to Cornwall on Friday evening, last week’s weather and travel had taken their toll and, in spite of my best intentions, there was no way I could face my home office over the last 2 days.
Instead – rest and recreation were the order of play. I don’t know about you but, the older I get, the simpler the pleasures become:
two good nights sleep
some lovely home cooking
a walk around Falmouth town on Saturday and along the beach on Sunday
reading (I’m getting into Stephen King’s latest novel “Under the Dome”)
watching a little bit of TV (notably Heroes Season 4 on Saturday night)
some very good conversation with Annie about our lives together and our plans for next 90 days (a busy time) – and with one of my 5 kids
This coming week presents some challenges:
the sheer volume of projects I am involved in at the moment
the day to day work and
I’m supposed to be up in London on Tuesday/Wednesday, the South East on Thursday and Surrey on Friday.
Overnight here in Cornwall there has been a thaw – the roads are clear.
But the forecast is for snow tonight and I’m concerned that Bodmin and Dartmoor may be impassable – well, for my car anyway.
There will be some short-term planning necessary.
Today I luxuriate in a day at my desk – the first this year – and a chance to create the special issue of the ezine I promised on how to deal with The Snow Crisis.
