Another glorious Monday morning in Murphy-world.
Things that made me smile this morning:
One. Waking up with the knowledge that my beloved is here with me for another week, instead of 300km away like he usually is on Mondays.
Two. Diving into my pool and swimming a dozen laps of butterfly (it is not a big pool). At the start of the summer I could manage about 5.
Three. Swimming along the bottom of the pool and watching the way the bubbles rose to the surface – wearing goggles opens up a whole underwater perspective.
Four. The chapters of today’s book I read over breakfast and morning coffee.
Five. The dragon illustration fellow author (and all round nice person) Gabrielle Wang emailed me to wish me a happy Chinese New Year – along with a rejoinder not to sweep the floor today, lest I sweep away my good luck. An excuse not to sweep the floor? Love it!
Hope you are smiling too!
