Just as planned - a weekend of indulgence.
Sharing a newly-engaged friend's joy over a bottle of good wine,
Chunky marmalade on nutty toast,
An adventurous run in the sunshine, enjoying the first colours of spring peering out from the verges,
Strolling around the city arm-in-arm, peering through shop windows and exploring church yards,
Walking York's ancient walls at dusk, enjoying the dimensions of the city and the noises of the early evening,
A celebration dinner with celebration wine,
A lie in so long I was afraid to look at the time; the first morning spent in my pyjamas for weeks,
Broad sheet newspapers, hot pretzels fresh from the oven and sweet milky coffee,
Singing along to my new Joni Mitchell LP whilst ironing shirts for the week ahead,
Preparing for an interview tomorrow (!); writing notes and reminding myself that I can do this,
Wobbling in trikonasana; hearing my body's response,
Cauliflower and cream cheese soup with a homemade salted pretzel.
