A friend is looking after my son. She had him last night and for most of the day today. This is so rare for me to get time out like this when it’s not work related, and it’s bloody great.
I went out last night with a group of friends into the city. I don’t know where everyone else was last night but there weren’t many people in Adelaide. The weather was really nice. It was the first time I’ve been out at night for a while now without a winter coat. I would have thought this alone would have made people want to venture out. Perhaps everyone’s still in winter hibernation mode.
I had a pretty enjoyable night and got to bed about 2.30 this morning and slept in until 8.30 which I hardly ever do.
I’m doing some homework for my course today without feeling guilty that I’m occupying my son with an electronic babysitter. I also had a 50 minute conversation with an interstate friend and it was fabulous to do so without interruptions.
I would have liked to spend today going and sitting in a cafe either with a friend or by myself and sitting there enjoying watching the world go by without looking out for a little person, and reading the paper uninterrupted, but I haven’t even ventured out the house today. And that’s ok.
