There are many words which describe today:
cute, frenetic, scarey, challenging, long, beautiful, and deathly..............
I am sure some of are wondering what exactly has been happening to make these words crop up. Well surfise to say, it's been interesting, like many a day is. Work was generally the challenging as everything can change so quickly from one extreme to the other. But it's really the after work I wanted to share.
I live several miles away from my place of work and this means that I have a drive of about 40 minutes after work to get home. Most of the time, I dont give it too much thought but as I had had a toughish last hour, I was reflecting on my journey home. I always have my iphone on with my Spotify playlists on and gamely sing away to myself, I am sure making other drivers laugh. On my journey home I move from tall tower blocks and busy city streets to high hills and beautiful fields of green. Fields full of sheep and lambs and also cows. I pass by a beautiful reservoir full of wild birds and sometimes stop for some fresh air, oh yes the occassional icecream.
Today there were hundreds of daffodils in bloom and I noticed banks of wild primroses had suddenly come out. As I got to home, the dark rain clouds cleared and as I drove down the hill towards town, the sun came out lighting up the Tor in the distance.
Having that drive home today made me feel more relaxed and unwinding meant that by the time I got home I had shaken off the work hat and was definately in relax at home mode. I find a journey can help to do that.
