I got up later this morning. I feel a bit guilty about this as I'm working with Mr D today. So while he donned his safety boots and high vis jacket, I made myself a cup of coffee. He knows that it's ridiculous to think that I could leave the house without it. I started to pour it into my 'to Go' cup and he suggested that I just join him later when I'm ready. So I put my coffee in one of my lovely Christmas mugs and plonked it on the coffee table whilst I said goodbye.
And yep, it was a hug and a kiss goodbye - guilt and love made me do it. I mean...which 'ready' was he referring to? Kitchen tidied and wiped and ready for next time? House tidied and ready for the holiday? Presents finished and wrapped and ready? I'm close with all of these things..but not close enough to be ready. But I rather suspect that applies to an awful lot of us now. And then there's the other guilt - the one that has me relieved to be doing a quick tidy and wipe in the kitchen and going off to work so that I don't have to think about anything else just yet! So this Christmas week link up with Elizabeth and Bleubeard's T stands for... comes to you courtesy of Mr Dunnit who unwittingly gave me time to realise I had a perfect 'shot' of my coffee, and time to join in!
