A completely different post than I had planned.

Today's writing Wednesday I actually first wrote at 2am Tuesday morning. H for happiness is the title but it doesn't seem right posting it this week.

Holiday silence

I’ve been on holiday for the last week and it’s actually felt like a holiday. Even on a tots week at Butlins. I decided to not write and just enjoy the week off. It was lovely not to have to think about work/builders/christmas(!)/housework etc. I took a mind holiday. It was lovely not to worry… Continue reading Holiday silence
