The View From Here

Just a day since I returned home and I'm coming down with something.  I think that my body has decided that enough is enough.  After weeks of on-call and hauling myself out of bed in the middle of the night (on the nights when I actually went to bed); my body  is admitting defeat.  It is as if I took a huge sigh of relief and my immunity went down with it.

So I have decided to be kind to myself.  After forcing myself to go out to post that long-awaited baby gift of a  cardigan for my niece, I turned tail and ran for cover.  I put on a favourite and much-loved pair of flannel pyjamas and my new slippers, which were going to get a post of their own, but you get to see them here instead.  There is something very reassuring about slippers isn't there?  It must have something to do with getting cozy for the dark nights ahead.

The long list of household jobs is going to have to wait.  I'm putting my feet up and the furthest I intend to move is the kitchen to make another cup of tea.  Enjoy your weekend.
