It's Monday, it's raining. I am tired, I have a cold & I have eczema on my eyelid - all familiar signs of me doing too much, not taking enough 'time out' and feeling a little run down.

Tonight I will be fixing that.

This morning I prepared & made one of my favourite comfort meals. It's something that my Mum used to make when I was little, and one of the things I used to make quite a bit whilst I was at university and missing home.

I warn you, it's not very attractive, or glam, and infact my husband calls it a "deconstructed cottage pie" !!

On Saturday the postman delivered a package for me. When I opened it, it was a book from a very thoughtful & lovely friend who had picked up on a comment I had made to her in a previous conversation about never understanding how men work!! I have been wanting to find time to sit down & have a read of it all weekend but didn't get the chance.

When the clock strikes 5pm this afternoon, my evening will consist of:

Racing home (as safely as possible!)
Removing make-up/washing face
Putting on pj's
Heating & serving bowls of said dinner
Curling up on the sofa with a throw over me
Eating said dinner
Spending the rest of the evening on the sofa with my nose buried in said book

If that doesn't sort me out back to scratch, I don't know what will!

Thank you Lauren for my fabulous Birthday present xxx


a very happy & restored me!
