Is there anything better than having a day off in the middle of the week to do whatever you like? A day when you don’t actually have to do anything at all if you don’t want to.
Yes there is. It’s a day when you don’t need to do anything, plus you have an unwatched dvd of the Gilmore Girls and a giant tin of custard creams to munch your way through. Then, as an added bonus, when you’re half way through watching the dvd, the postman sticks another four episodes through your letter box (and no, that’s not a euphemism).
Later, just as you’re snuggled up on the sofa in Stars Hollow heaven, the blanket-grey sky outside starts to grumble and weep and make that beautiful sound that rain does when it bounces off the leaves, just to remind you how wonderful it is to live up high with the tree tops.
Today has been about as perfect as a day gets.
