The Midwinter Pause

It’s here. The bit we didn’t get last year, because, rain. 

These days between Christmas and new year. I used to find them an unbearable waste of time between key nights-out where there was a void filled only by roses chocolates and end of year review shows. 

Now they are blissful days of deep midwinter, and I relish the lack of plan, and the empty days. Days to nest, days to read, days to catch up, days to make plans. To potter and to faff. 

Of course there are people to see, clothes to launder, jobs to do. It can all wait. Just one more cup of tea…
