Nicholas Bate drops 100 words every once in a while. I liked this one.
Deep and long sleep, slow coffee and some reflection. Rapid unpacking and washing on. From entropy and chaos to some order and greater simplicity. Quick e-mail and then switch off for the weekend. The local market: friendly, warm conversation and best local-grown vegetables at budget prices. But where’s the fish van? Hope he’s OK? Blue skies, strong sun and bitter wind. Balls in play across the park; kids at their best. Climb, run, yell and just be. Return to wood-burner and two novels and slow cooked food and reflections captured in her note-book. Reflections on shifts; it was her Saturday.
