I spent the whole day by myself, not doing much but enjoying the solitude and relaxation. Here are a few snapshots of my me-time.
This week has been busy, very busy! On top of my lecturing duties and magazine work there have been meetings upon meetings.
Not all the meeting where job related, as I did meet up with friends and spent time laughing and catching up over beautifully cooked food, but today I feel as if I am all met out. After this busy week and with last week spent in a flurry of teaching, designing and spending time with my cousin I just need a little bit of me-time.
I think I just need a day to myself, a day to enjoy my own company and maybe catch up with me for a bit. So instead of rushing out into the world today, I am going to stay put, recharge my waning batteries.
As I flick over my calendar and look at what next week has in store for me I can already tell that time will be a precious supply so I think taking it slow, snail pace and sloth like for one day is allowed.
And while I have a long list of things I’d like to do (next to the one of things I need to do) I think I will just let my mood lead me and only do what feels right in the moment. Luckily for me tomorrow is a bank holiday here in Ireland, so I have another day off to tackle my lists.
I never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude.
