• Family, Reading 20.10.2011

    “If I could have ONE whole day to myself, I would…

    This blogging prompt from BritMums caught my imagination today as I actually have a day to myself. Well, not, strictly speaking, an entire day, but from 8.30 till 4 so not bad.

    The trouble with a day to myself is that I actually like spending time with my family! So an entire day with one or more of my daughters, my son or my husband would be a real treat but a day on my own, not so much. Today also happens to be my Birthday so really I would prefer to share it with the family! I have some college work to do but I’m going to leave that till tomorrow and have a day off.

    My husband gave me a Kindle for my birthday so you can probably guess how the day is going! Firstly, I got it charged up. Then I downloaded a book, just because I could. It was actually some short stories by Michael Connolly just to try out the download process. The first story has been read and I am now thinking about which full length book to buy. I could happily spend the rest of the day choosing and reading a book, accompanied by fresh coffee at intervals. In fact, that is exactly how I will spend the day and, as it is my birthday, I will even put the heating on, plump up the cushions and settle myself down on the sofa. Bliss!

    Later, I may do a little baking. Mmm… I can already smell the cake in the oven and the coffee brewing and my Kindle saving my place for me in a good book. The perfect day.

    • Happy very belated birthday.
      I like this post as I hardly get any time for me & you have reminded me how lucky I am.

    • Thank you. It was a lovely day.I didn’t make the cake as my sister-in-law bought me one. I had a very lovely evening too, eating out followed next day by a treat day out in Manchester with the youngest of my daughters. Spoilt!

    • HAPPY BIRTHDAY! 🙂

      Sounds a lovely day, reading and baking – and then eating!

      Hope you continued to enjoy it and proceed to have a wonderful evening.
