I’ve just begun a nine day day break from work and this is the morning of my first day off. It’s raining outside but I’m not at all bothered. Time at home for me is always a pleasure and always stress free. I get to recharge my batteries and appreciate life. Some of the best holidays I’ve had were those which didn’t have me packing bags, going to airports or train stations; they were the ones when I crawled out of bed at 10am, put the kettle on and sat in the garden. No plans.
