Was woken by the birdsong today, what a wonderful way to wake up, for 90% of the year I sleep with my bedroom window open as I like the room to be on the cool side and love to be woken up naturally by the light and birdsong, doesn’t happen very often as I generally have an alarm set but am trying to stop that on a Sunday and allow my body to wake up when it wants to (or by Sophiecat’s demand for food) either way it’s nicer than an alarm.
My plan for the day was to go swimming and do some work as got client work that needs doing and also an event I need to plan so wanted to get ahead of myself this week. I’m off from the uni too so got a full week (well apart from the bank holiday on Friday) of my business stuff.
Swimming was glorious, water and air temperature were roughly the same at around 10°C, the sun was shining and wasn’t very busy at all. I swim in just my swimsuit but over winter have also worn neoprene gloves & boots, today I’ve braved the water without them and it was noticeable, still managed 600m and stayed in for 30 minutes, didn’t actually want to get out as it was so soothing & cathartic but you have to listen to you body which was telling me it had had enough.
After getting home and cooking some breakfast I did start doing some work and managed about 3 hours, didn’t do as much as I would have liked but that’s ok, will finish it off tomorrow.
Cooked myself a roast chicken dinner for tea which I find really comforting and now it’s bed, another week done and dusted and on to the next one.
I am getting close to having only 100 days left before my birthday and I thinking of implementing some habits for these 100 days, my friend bought me a book called “100 days of self-discovery” – Learn more about yourself every day, this has got me thinking about what else I can do for the last 100 days of being 44.
