I’m sitting in a window seat in Costa in Billericay. I’m not sure I’ve been here before, which is strange as it’s only a few miles away from Chelmsford, but there you go. It’s a beautiful warm sunny day outside today and everyone has a smile on their face.
I’ve not long dropped the kids back home after having them for a few hours today. We ended up in Monkey Puzzle in Maldon at their request and they all seemed to have a decent time.
It’s strange trying to write a blog entry when you have nothing to say. This one will be open to the public, so although there is stuff going on in my private life, especially around work, none of it will be revealed here. How boring is that, eh?
Today is just a nice day for sitting and relaxing. Nothing going on. No plans to do anything. There’s plenty I should be doing, and plenty more that could be done, but I’m doing nothing. I’m in a definite Can’t Be Arsed mood and quite frankly, I reckon I’m not the only one.
I love this time of year. Generally from October through to February is crappy, with long nights and dark mornings, and everyone having a face like a smacked arse. Even though that same period spans Christmas, I generally can’t stand it. Although I’m far from being a sun worshipper, I just love how everyones spirits rise around this time of year. In fact, I’ll go on record and say that if I had my way, I’d spend 3-4 months in the Southern Hemisphere every year if I had the cash and the situation to allow that. Logistics such as seeing the kids, working and so on and so forth could be sorted out at another juncture!
