I am good at lots of things. I am not good at relaxing. I like doing things and I like being on the move and I like accomplishing things and I like making plans.
I struggle to do nothing.
But sometimes I have to do nothing. On Monday afternoon I did not feel well. Nor did I feel well on Tuesday, so I came home from work and did nothing. On Wednesday I felt worse.
But today I had the day off work, and I relaxed. I cycled into town quite leisurely at 11am, and took this accidental photo while playing with my phone:
(One should not play with phones while cycling. It is very bad form)
There were a number of stalls up in Cardiff for St. Davids Day. I couldn't resist buying 4 hot welsh cakes for £1:
And while in town I stopped at Certini - the Bike Store under House of Fraiser. The ever helpful staff helped me pick out a new helmet, and I cycled it home to get final Brewer Half approval.
There is something a bit odd about carrying a helmet on the back of a bicycle.
And now I'm home, and relaxing while blogging and watching the sun set out my window.
Also, It's still light at 5:30, which is a sure sign spring is coming. And yes - I'm still wearing my Awesome Hat inside - because I love a good hat!
So I didn't manage to do nothing today - but I did manage to relax a bit and get my mind off work. In an hour I have thursday yoga with Tori - I don't want to risk illness by jumping back into swimming or climbing but I think Yoga is a good mid ground for relaxation and recovery.
