Allllriiiiiiigghhhht!

Lunch.

No sitting huddled over my notes while eating today!

No standing in line at the bank, reading Geography text books for me!

Oh no!

Today I went and sat in the Cathedral grounds, in this garden





and played guitar through earphones.

Warm sun, blue sky, small birds asking for food, while I sat there and played the blues..

Alright!

If the rest of the day is even half as good as that, I will consider myself a very lucky guy, which deep down I know I am anyway.

But the rest of the week might not be so chilled. I will be returning to my Mr Mom role, as Mrs RC heads off to visit her dad for a few days. If my next few posts sound a bit breathless, you will know why! I will be getting the kids to school, walking the dog, going to work, going home, collecting kids from school, feeding the kids, doing washing, walking the dog, doing ironing, putting the kids to bed, putting myself to bed, getting up again because I forgot something, putting myself back to bed...

Have a great day!

Hi John,

no sign of Jedi Cat? Glad you had a nice lunch. Hey did you see 1066 on TV last night? Dramatisation of the events of that year. Last night it was the battles of Fulford and Stamford Bridge. Now they have to rush back to fight the Normans. Tonight will be the big one at Hastings. This is brilliant TV!! I watched it with my two wargaming kids, the ones you met at Battle Day. They love history!

kenady - Thanks. I will post about my first ever Mr Mom experience later in the week.

Karie - Hi! I will be back when I have some time to catch up.

James - Missed that - too busy painting Dacians! Will make sure I watch Part 2 tonight! Thanks for the reminder.

I noticed you forgot something in your Mr. Mom day... feeding yourself! And, oh yeah, you never mentioned breakfast for you or the kids, then there is bath time, homework time...
You will be hard pressed to find any time to blog!
It really isn't as hard as it sounds! You'll do great, and if you forget something, the kids will let you know-- LOL

I'm so glad you've been able to catch a break from your studies. As for having to be Mr. Mom for a few days, I know you'll do great.

That is gorgeous! My building overlooks a freeway. Not quite the same for lunch time fun, is it?

Chief Rock Chef said...

Michele - I am Rock Chef - food is assumed! They are also old enough to bath themselves...

Terri - Yep, time to wind down now!

Miss Minneapolis - It is great - I work within spitting distance of a place that people travel around the world to visit! A freeway? I think I would be sitting there with a camera waiting to film idiotic driving!

Interesting setting for playing the blues. If I tried it I'd probably wind up playing something sounding much more medieval. ;-)

We are where we feel!
