And I am winding down after a hectic week at work and the birthday party for my kids.
We had fun, our friends ate all the kebab with saté sauce, and the mess was minimal (always nice).
So what did I do today? I cleared that minimal mess in the house and then spent some peaceful hours in the garden clearing out the weeds from in between our cobbles.
See the difference?
This is my mindfulness exercise which I practice numerous times every Spring. If I do this a couple of hours every day, I will have cleared the entire garden in two weeks.
Many of our acquaintances have pronounced us MAD. But we like our cobbles. They are old-fashioned, and have been salvaged from the old road which used to run from Hellevoetsluis to Den Briel before it was tarred.
I was too tired to do more cooking, so went to get a take-away, and look what I found on the little square where the local chippy is:
Honestly. Some people have a weird idea of fun... There's bikes in every tree, can you see?
Time to have another cup of tea and some left-over cake.
