Woke my usual time around 8.30am and the sun was shining over the marina, well almost! I feel reasonably excited for this year because not working, we will untie the boat and cruise for a couple of months.
I was not raining today, a good start to the year, so we went for a walk along the Trent & Mersey canal in the village of Alrewas, in Staffordshire. It was beautiful, the sun broke through the dark clouds with shards of light. It stilled my thoughts, and made me feel calm and relaxed.
Mr Hsg still has a cold, his eyes running in the chill air on our walk, but the freshness blew away the days of being indoors.
