Kind of a painful night if sleep as I appear to have twisted my lumbar region quite uncomfortably again. I did spend a lot of time crashed out on an inflatable PVC soda yesterday (not like that you filthy-minded people).
Today I have to mobilise a teenager who is off to Spain tomorrow. They're also probably very hungover after knocking back the rum at yesterday's summer party.
For now: coffee and Peaky Blinders in the hope it'll inspire me to write.
Kids are gone to school and work. @Jo is on a training course. The house is cool and quiet, except for the sound of birds in the garden. Happy Solstice, folks (if that's your thing). 🌞
Well, tonight's reading and quiet time time didn't happen. As @Jo came home from 12 hours at work and we talked about stuff on the sofa for an hour, pretty much non-stop. So that was particularly fucking awesome. 💜
The Happiness Hypothesis is turning out to be quite good. I like the author's writing style and so far it's a fairly deep comparison and analysis of psychology, neuroscience and Eastern philosophy. Particularly interesting to read about split-brain patients and experiments (not least of all as an epileptic myself).
@dockers You're not out and about in a village in East Cheshire today are you? If not, you have a twin who also has a beardy SO and a dog that looks like Ziggy. 😂
