What a difference 1/2 a day makes

I took half a day's leave today, and I am so pleased with how much I achieved in such a short space of time.

I left work just after noon. Then had lunch with my Mom, got my twice yearly shearing from the hairdresser, did Tesco's, and still managed to get home to spend some time in this magical sunshine that we have all been waiting for.

I let the hens out into the garden and took my notebook and camera.

As they scratched for bugs, I scribbled notes. As they flapped and chuckled, I took photos of my sun-kissed daffodils. And when they stretched out to bathe in the sunshine, I managed to write down the idea of a mini series for young children.

Not bad for 1/2 a day off work!


  1. Hi Diane,
    Amazing just how much we can accomplish when we have the right setting to fire our imaginations.
    Wishing you well with your idea for a mini-series for young children.
    With respect, Gary

  2. It doesn't sound as if you were off work at all! But there's a difference when you're doing what you want to. Well done.
