the weekend you want, the weekend you get

I have to work most of the weekend and as it is coming on top of many weeks of working crazy hours, my stamina is beginning to flag and I am starting to feel sorry for myself.

Because I can’t have a relaxing weekend, I hope very much that you can and that you can relax for the both of us.

I hope you get to go and have a nice cafe breakfast with a beloved.

I hope you get to go to a movie or see a band…

I hope you get to have a nap in the afternoon…

And I hope you get to sit on the porch and watch the yard birds squabbling over the bread scraps you threw on the lawn for them…

Have a lovely weekend.

  2. Thanks, guys.

    Margi – I did nearly cry – especially as that cafe photograph was a particularly lovely lunch I had with my friend Emma McCleary in Auckland – lovely memories! Hope your marking pile is shrinking by the hour, M. xx H

  3. Sucky! I’m sorry that you’re not getting to relax this weekend, and I’m also sorry that there are few things you need to do for me/the book, at the time you’re most busy. I’m doing a semi-final proofread at the moment.
