For the words to come out right
Just getting used to sunshine,
I'm still squinting in the light.
So that was my excuse for not writing straight after breakfast. Except it's no longer early in the morning and the sun has vanished behind our usual layer of grey cloud, so both my excuses have vanished and it's time I did something useful.
Other than having a leisurely breakfast and checking email and LJ, I've done nothing productive so far today. So I'll start by unloading the dishwasher and putting a load of clothes on to wash in the hope that the physical activity might stir my brain into action. That and another cup of tea.
