FEET UP on a working day

I simply love it when my husband and I both wake up to the irritating alarm in the middle of the week, look towards the window, try and look into the future and visualize how hectic and unvaried our day is going to be, sigh and with the same thought say ‘Lets just bunk today’.

Now don’t get me wrong, it’s not like we do this often – Maybe once in about 3 odd months or so.

Now that it is decided that we are not going to put our shoes on, no list of tasks to follow, no calls that HAVE TO be taken from ten different people – we put on a fragrant pot of tea, grab the gardening gear and see how the plants are doing. It is so rare that we have the time during the middle of the day to observe the shades of green change from light to light.

What a beautiful sunny day it  is – all the clothes are out in the sun for a quick dry, the kitchen is cleaned, all our favorite songs are playing at the back while we grab the newspaper and the tab to see what all we have missed in the past few days.

I have grilled fish, wine that tastes better with motley conversations and a breeze that refuses to give up. Now that the bike is washed and nicely oiled, the grocery shopping is done for the month. What a peaceful day!

I’m sure you must be thinking – isn’t this a weekend kind of a day? Well, we did accomplish much more that any other day but since nothing was planned or was on a schedule, it was twenty times more relaxed and the day just cruised along with our tempo of doing nothing – yet completing everything.

  1. Moved from UK to Taiwan on an extended career break, to do pretty much nothing all day, apart from enjoying life, though I have found writing a blog does take up an awful lot of time ^_^


  2. Summers are becoming tough everywhere – sad case of Global warming.
    What about your career?
    I hope you don’t mind me asking, but I am just curious to know. I too wish to leave my career one day and travel. To do the same, I will need to support myself financially and want to know how everybody else is coping in similar situations.


  3. We sold our flat in UK and was able to buy another one slightly further out from London making it mortgage free. The rent is more or less sufficient to support us here, and if the £hadn’t drop by over 10% due to Brexit, I could have a few more luxuries as well!

    I know a lot of people teach English whilst they travel, there’s always a big demand for that in Asia, so that could be an option for you.

    Hope your dream will come true one day, and in the meanwhile do some virtual travel with me 😀
