Well, yesterday’s plan of an earlier night and early morning failed spectacularly. I was still awake at 3.30am and didn’t get out of bed till midday. Tomorrow morning is going to be a struggle.
I’m glad I’m going back to work tomorrow, holidays are good but I’m ready to get stuck back in now. I wish I’d done more prep for the day job over the holiday but I didn’t, and there is nothing I can do about it now.
I have enjoyed the last day of this break. I haven’t done a lot but what I’ve done was good. I have knit a little, relaxed a lot and made some soda bread for tomorrows lunch.
I used my homemade yogurt. It will be eaten tomorrow with my homemade soup that was made with proper chicken stock boiled up from the carcass of a roast chicken. I’m serious, I don’t even recognise myself anymore! I’ve never really enjoyed this kind of thing. I’ve been faux frugal because I felt I had to be. Now I am being properly frugal because I am enjoying the cooking and the not spending money. It’s becoming a game.

I have no idea how long I can keep up the “good life” but I’ll run with it as long as I can.
Tonight I really don’t have a choice. I have to cosy myself up and get some sleep. I really don’t want to be grouchy to everyone on my first working day of 2014.
