Plain Fare

We are back from our travels
and glad to be sleeping in our own bed,
waking to sounds we are familiar with,
eating scrambled eggs off my lovely plates.

We have promised ourselves
that August will be the month
of living slowly, simple food*, enjoying our home.

I will sit in the garden with a book,
MrM can watch the cricket (if he is strong enough),
we will make plans for picnics, beach trips, fêtes.

It feels like the best kind of holiday
and I am looking forward to it already.

* cocktails are excluded from the austerity regime.


  1. It sounds like a wonderful plan to have a holiday in the comfort of your own home.
    Those eggs have me longing for breakfast


  2. A holiday without a cocktail (at least one) can't be defined as a holiday, me thinks.

  3. yet again you prove to be very wise Mrs M.

  4. That sounds delightful.

  5. All the comforts of home - perfect.

  7. To be honest, I really think those are the best kind of holiday.

  8. With the weather as it is at the moment, a holiday at home with a book and a cocktail sounds perfect.
