keeping it simple

I can't wait for the Easter weekend.

I shall rest and read books, dig in the garden and hang out the washing.

I shall listen to the radio and do the ironing.

I shall restore the house to the pre-decorator levels of chaos which were acceptable rather than the post-decorator levels which are not.

I shall think about what we will eat and take time to cook it.

I shall cook fish pie and roast lamb, lemon cake and soft boiled eggs.

I shall empty my mind of the chaotic clutter of the term.

I must do that.

I must.

  2. I'm coming to eat.

    (except not really) (besides, that would be too much work for you and I mean for you to relax and eat those eggs)
