Pyjama Day

Felicity and I, ready for our PJ Day

Well, it's been a long time coming!
After a couple of busy and strenuous months my body told me to STOP! Although in my mind I realised quite some time ago it was time to slow down a little, but the common sense and practical disposition always won the argument , "Nonsense! Soldier on and stick to your routine. Everything will be okay in the end!"
I cycled to work yesterday (my usual Friday practice these days).  During the day I did not feel 100% but dismissed it as just end-of-week tiredness.  By the end of the day I had aches and pains in my whole body, sore sinuses and was feeling more and more lethargic by the minute.  I still rode my bike home (good effort, still averaging 25 km / hour!).
When I got off the bicycle at home I felt that it was time to stop fighting and simply succumb.
So, it's going to be a day spent in pyjamas, catching up on some reading, seeping a soothing concoction of home grown lemon with honey and ginger, enjoying home made nourishing chicken soup and lots of rest!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! Don't forget to listen to your body and give it some well deserved nourishment from time to time!
