Early Mark

Actually it’s not that hot, but it is warm. And even though I have the balcony door open – which I’m sitting near – I’m feeling a bit sticky.

Not an especially exciting Thursday. Just sitting at home tonight and listening to the radio.

I’m in “savings mode” right now, as I’ve realised just how few pays I have until my overseas trip. Financially this will be less taxing than the last one, simply because it’s so much shorter. But still, it’s time to tighten my belt for a few weeks at least.

And the day? Well, it was mostly dominated by a funeral I attended late this morning. As with all funerals, there was for me a fair degree of self-reflection that often goes with the concern for others you know and love.

It’s exhausting, you know. So I gave myself a half-hour early mark and came home a little early today.
