A totally self indulgent day – I sat on the sofa. I watched crap TV, which mainly seemed to be reruns of old British TV programmes. I read my trashy book about a wedding pact between three friends, which I secretly enjoyed. I ate, mostly bread and m&m’s. And repeat!! All day – it was bliss. I didn’t go anywhere near the map or the plan as I feel slightly overwhelmed by the immensity of it all. In fact, this was my view pretty much all day. Took some time out of my hugely taxing schedule to throw the hoover around, removing enough dog hair to make a new smaller version of Chilli dog. I also wrote a short article that I’m planning to send in to the Lonely Planet (if I ever finish it and get the courage to actually email it). After my very productive day of doing nothing, I accompanied Tracey to the hairdressers after work – they couldn’t squeeze me in for a haircut at the same time – but it was just nice to get out of the house after being a hermit all day. Giggled and chatted our way through the whole appointment, although I did pick up a gossip magazine to read but it is not gossip worth reading about if you don’t know any of the people in the articles! Headed home for an evening of ‘Modern Family’, sitting on the sofa eating dinner, drinking baileys and munching on fruit and nut toblerone. Managed a quick Skype chat with Jayne and started a new book (‘Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children’) before passing out, exhausted from my day of doing nothing!! 13 days to go.
