A sip of tea


I love unwinding after a frantically hectic day at work. Today I swore to leave the office at 6pm, and I did! When I arrived home to a home still slightly softly lit by the evening light, I rejoiced at the feeling. Usually when I open the door, my mum would be watching tv and would ask me if I wanted to have some leftover dinner. This time, I could greet my parents when they came home!
To finally stop, take stock of life, and ponder about the next dinner party over a tiny pot of tea - feels supremely good. I really love dinner parties at the end of the week. It gives me something to plan for and look forward to throughout the week. It keeps me sane, and keeps my home (somewhat) neat.

I have to say, I know EXACTLY what you mean.

People don't get why I get so ecstatic when I reach the open car park and there's (still) light.

But when you go weeks and weeks where the only light you see is fluorescent lights.. leaving work when you can still feel the warmth of the sun is pretty amazing.

You got it spot on! The warmth of the sun is just amazing. Usually it's just the terrible chill of the empty buses running late at night.
