Exactly a year ago I was preparing for a picnic with friends, enjoying the first properly hot day of the summer and celebrating my new-found freedom from regular employment.
Today I’m trying to get some work done (and no, it’s not freelance stuff – an office worker again, me), enjoying the cloudy coolness of the weather compared to the way too hot weekend – hurrah! – and wondering (ok, also worrying, but mostly wondering) where I’ll be a year from now.
Yesterday was supposed to be a very productive day in terms of preparing for that future a year, or a little less, from now. Instead I was too hot so, obviously, I baked (for a seriously good gluten free brownie, look no further – although I have to admit that I unhealthified the recipe by substituting oil & oat milk for applesauce; also, I wonder if a flax egg would work) and knitted (I’m learning to make a toe-up sock, and really liking it, except for the cast-off which I can’t make stretchy enough). I took pictures but couldn’t be arsed to do anything about blogging them…
And that’s me on this day of freedom to some.
