Simply a Moment

Following Alexa’s prompt, here’s my moment from today.


It’s 4pm, and it’s beginning to get dark outside.  Although it’s been a bright day I can see it’s gloomy now, and it looks very cold.  I’ve had the central heating on high all day as I’ve cleaned my bedroom carpet and I’m hoping it will dry.  But I can still feel a cold draught around my legs.  I’m still wearing my old fleecy as it’s so cold today.

I’m sitting at the dining room table that is strewn with craft stuff.  Still trying to finish off my Journal Your Christmas album.  I’ll have another go at it in a minute.  I’ve just taken the backs off a big pile of Christmas cards so that I can give the pictures to Mum for making recycled Christmas cards. It feels good to get them out of the way - what a long time it takes to put Christmas properly away!

I’m listening to BBC Radio 2 iplayer.  Stewart McConie is doing a really interesting series called ‘The People’s Songs’.  The episode I’m listening to is called ‘Two Tribes’ and includes songs and interviews  about the cold war.  Very interesting!

The rest of the house is quiet, everyone out to work. They will be back in a couple of hours so I will have to start thinking about cooking dinner soon, but for now, I can move the laptop out of the way and indulge in a little cutting and sticking!Home 005

I can really relate to that happy feeling when you realise you don't need to do anything about dinner just yet and there is time for a bit of fun!

You've just reminded me how nice those "I-can-do-anything-I-want" moments are! Hoping you enjoyed the cutting and sticking ... (and that the carpet dried out!). Your writing vividly creates the feeling of a winter dusk and the pervasive chill. Thank-you so much for joining in :).

Love the idea of not having to do much right now. Been thinking of listening to that series - thanks for the reminder!
