This is my morning thus far:
- Moving through my French lessons like a Québécois.
- Editing a few work papers.
- At hour twenty of a 60-hour audible marathon audible read of Sherlock Holmes by Stephen Fry (it’s been my background music all week) …
- Whilst I sit at my desk with both the front and garden door windows open to birds and bus noises outside.
Where I’ve just discovered a men’s fashion magic trick called “collar stays” …
Who knew? Rather clever little accessories.
And I embark on re-learning the flags of the world. As a kid I remember being quite good at identifying countries with their flags. At the moment, however, it’s all a sea of colours, stars, triangles and crosses.
At first glance I can spot Iceland, Jamaica, Belgium, Norway, Turkey and France. That’s a fail on any test. I’ll get there.
So that’s me today. And here I shall remain until the bell rings this afternoon. No news. No social media. A day off. Just me playing with my brain and drinking turmeric tea.
And it’s serving this soul well.
