Girl, uninterrupted


(what’s the betting the phone rings now I just typed that!)

Well well well we meet again and I am (for the moment) a lady of leisure having taken 3 days holiday to do, well to do pretty much nothing. Today is the third of those glorious days and I really don’t want them to end.

On wednesday I used my Christmas treat vouchers from H to have the most wonderful time at the local health club. I had a full massage which was bliss, a rejuvinating facial which included a mask that at the time I thought smelt like Muller yoghurt and turned out to be Strawberry and Kiwi ( see I wasn’t far wrong with the fruit corner thing), a file and polish on my toes and a manicure.

Look look look (squee):

Pretty pink fingers. You can tell this is uncharacteristic for me by the fact that despite the manicure I still have paper cuts on my knuckles from picking up a defence in a funny way on Tuesday and slicing across the top of my hand – sometimes I think defendants sharpen the paper especially.

Anyway after all of that I was so wonderfully chilled out it took me twice as long to get round the supermarket but nevermind! It was such a beautiful day on Wednesday as well so I came back home to tidy up and opened all the windows to let the Spring in and for the first time in ages I was able to put the laundry outside to dry – it just makes it smell better!

Since then I have been discovering all sorts of things:

1, Something very exciting happens in our local town at 12.00 on a Thursday. I have no idea what it is or was but it involved lots of coaches, lots of foreign school children and a dearth of parking spaces. I must have circled town 5 or 6 times trying to find a space before I hit lucky.. Anyone who knows what is so special about Thursdays, (or just wants to guess!), drop me a comment.

2, Depending on how big your monitor is I may or may not need to explain this one. Pear cider – seriously. My notes on this one would be that it tastes like pear drops with an overtone of cough syrup. Not entirely unpleasant, although much sweeter, but I’m sticking to the apples in future.

3, Left to my own devices I will knit for a whole day if my consicence lets me. Yesterday morning I did all sorts of chores with a brief break for more kitteny yarn games …

I’m beading here – bet you couldn’t tell!!
Today the chores are done and I have knit all morning curled up on a beanbag in the corner of the office listening to podcasts on the computer – I know when I’m back in work next week I will be sooooo envious of myself for this. The knitting was all for the bookbooksecret so no piccies for the moment. Suffice to say I have finished two of the four socks and I’m about to go and cast on for a third and the one I finished this morning was a magnum opus – when the book comes out I’ll let you know which one I mean but for the moment just feel sorry for my tired little brain.

4, My Christmas poinsetta is still alive despite my best efforts!

Now as no-one is going to ring and H isn’t home for a couple of hours I’m going to go and curl up with a good film and another sock – ta-ta!

    I’m so jealous. I could totally use a vacation like yours. I can’t to see all your secret projects.
