My friend did lots of sleeping today and we made the decision not to much. I went in my Dad's did quite a bit of reading while my friend was happy in the land of Nod! When she awoke we walked over to the White water rafting centre for a coffee but the coffee shop was closed so we went across the way to the big swimming pool and ordered big lattes and cakes while watching the people on the other side of the glass being extremely active and healthy in the swimming pool. It was good to see my friend chill as she realised all her responsibilities had been left behind,

As for me, well it was good to have an excuse to do nothing in particular, I could happily make a career out of giving people a rest! (Not really I get bored easily!)

I remember being very touched though when one of my best friends says she always relaxes when she comes to stay with me as I can't do life in the fast lane, my brain does it but my body won't! It's kinda nice to feel I have that affect on some friends, to help them stop and smell the roses. Rest is so important in today's fast paced society.
We had pizza for tea - we both love pizza and then we settle down for the evening and watched two films. Miss Potter and An Unfinished Life, both lovely stories and easy watching.

“Don't underestimate the value of Doing Nothing, of just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering.”
