It is Friday, the Friday of a long weekend no less and I am feeling fine. Actually, I am feeling better than fine, I am feeling FAB and I like it.
My day started off a little rough with a period of insomnia at 4am but I managed to drift back off to sleep at around 6.30. When it was time to get up to do the school morning madness, man-child offered to do it all so I could get some more sleep and sleep I did, until almost 9 o’clock. Knowing that I didn’t have much on for the day, I stayed in bed catching up on some tv viewing and more rest. It was delightful.
I pottered around the house, attempting to tidy up, for the rest of the morning, trying not to make too much noise as man-child worked from home. A friend dropped in for a chat and I even managed to get some work done without too much hassle. Man-child was able to take the kids to their circus class this afternoon allowing me to go to one last meeting before the weekend begins.
I wandered home from my meeting in the next suburb, enjoying the crisp winter air whilst the sun was shining and the sky was blue. There were smiling faces everywhere. I don’t know if it was the sunny day or the prospect of a long weekend ahead that was making everyone happy but strangers were smiling and saying hello everywhere I walked.
I stopped at the florist to pick up some flowers to bring some of the happy sunshine indoors thinking that the day couldn’t possibly get any better.
I was wrong, the day could get better! I received a text from friends inviting me out to dinner tonight. So now the family will order in and I will go out and spend some time with 2 beautiful girls and enjoy some great food and even better company. I can’t wait.
With a Friday this good, the weekend promises to be amazing. I hope you have a great weekend too, what do you have planned?
