Me time

Silence speaks volumes
Without uttering a word
Nothing is unsaid

-By James Traverse

Today the summer just came back, it was an amazing intense hot day so I decided to take half a day off from work, just because and dedicate it to me! To have me as my company, to enjoy the silence of my thoughts, to walk around.

In order not to have to many guilty feelings, I solved some administrative issues, happy for that!

Had two coffee breaks, one at our favourite place (my normal order: cold iced Schweppes Bitter Lemon and a capuccino), then an ice coffee on a terasse for people watching, with some nice magazines as bonus.

I did some brief shopping, including gorgeous flowers for the flat. Some nice gardenias and crysanthemum, blue and yellow!

I booked our holiday, we are off to Lanzarote, Canary Islands for our wedding anniversary. Spend some money, but the feeling afterwards cannot be beat!

In order to end such a wonderful afternoon, Peter invited me for sushi alongside a nice conversation.

My conclusion: happy summer day!



I am so glad that you had a happy summer day with Peter.

There is nothing better then taking time for yourself.

You will have a wonderful holiday in Lanzarote. We were there 5 weeks ago in Playa Blanca and it was lovely.

Wishing you well Claudia.

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
