A week ago we came home from a holiday of sun, sea, sangria and not much else.
The thing about having your own place in the sun is that you get used to the surroundings over the years and don't feel the need to rush out to see places and do things. Sometimes, we do some lovely trips and explorings. But this time, we were so happy to just have a chance to sit and watch the world turn slowly,that we did just that.
There was some maintenance type DIY which involved several trips to DIY shops, and the time consuming but necessary stuff - you know, bank, solicitor, Agent, blah blah. But mostly, we sat somewhere in the shade and just let the world work around us. On DIY days we used the pool to cool off and on other days we sat on the beach and used the sparkling Mediterranean to cool and exercise our limbs.
Mr Dunnit is a very active man, and on occasion I feared that he was bored, and suggested activities. He turned them down...a sure sign that he too was relishing the 'do nothing' type holiday. Look here...even his halo was rested enough to show up !
I'm at home today doing chores and bookwork. First day off since we got home, as normal. It's lovely and warm. The sun is shining. And I had a sudden yearning to sit in the garden with a large glass of something with ice. Like I did last week at lunchtimes. Ain't that the sign of a good time? When you think a drink at lunchtime and a siesta thereafter would fit into a normal working day without too much trouble!
