I’ve had the past week off work. And this is a reminder to myself of what that week has meant.

I’ve walked a lot, caught up with friends, and seen a lovely exhibition at my local museum. I’ve also had the opportunity to catch up on some reading - I’ve cleared down Pocket, and the kindle samples I’d saved. I’ve read several books. And a magazine or two. I’ve been able to read sentences and enjoy the use of language or allow my imagination to fire with curiosity at the words 12. It’s been wonderful.

After a normal working week, I don’t have the attention left to do much of this. I recognised that I need to safeguard my attention and curiosity because both of those things are a fundamental part of my job!
