...is what I am savouring and making the most of, with this weekend being spent at a festival of fabulous, challenging and downright out-there music (I've bought a fresh set of earplugs especially for the occasion); followed by a week well away from anything to do with work, and to be spent in glorious countryside in a remote, one-street village, with a nice pub just down the road.
The drinks and the pub food will, of course, be well-deserved after miles and miles of walking and/or cycling: that's the idea anyway.
It all starts right now - it's all ahead of me - as I write these words, and I intend to make the most of every single minute of it.
The rain has ceased, the sun is shining and it's a pleasant evening.
I should be relaxed more often: sometimes at least, it suits me.
