I still haven't been up to much and am actually enjoying just chilling out. I knew I was going to need a good break, but I also thought I'd be back into the swing of things by now, albeit slowly.
But that hasn't happened, and to be honest, I'm keen to continue doing some more nothing. Quite a bit more nothing. Without feeling guilty.
One thing I have done is to read a couple of books and another is to work out some writing goals for 2010, which I'll share when my head kicks back into gear. I expect that will probaby happen soon after Hamish goes back to school and the house is quiet for longer than five minutes at a time.
The big decision I have at the moment is whether I can be bothered making a trip to Rutherglen and Shepparton to restock on tokay (I can't believe I ran out again!!) and the finest the SPC/Ardmona cannery has to offer. Although firstly, I shouldn't be saying tokay, as they call it topaque now, and secondly, it will be good to have gazillions of cans of baked beans on the ready. Especially if we're going to stick with making a curry every week, as the kids love a good bowl of baked beans with their rice instead of said curry, and so far each curry has lasted us three glorious nights.
If I go, I'll go late next week with Hamish and we'll stay two nights. He'll see it as an excellent opportunity to play Monopoly and while there are so many good reasons to go, it seems tough just thinking about it at the moment. Lucky it's a week or so away, I guess.
