Jack’s apartment is on the fourth floor (huge penthouse flat he shares with four other flatmates) and it has a lot of floor to ceiling windows. So we can see out onto the roads below. There were a lot of people jogging and walking today. A lot more than usual. I guess they are those who wanted to make a healthy start to the year. Perhaps they have made resolutions.
How did I start the day? We spent most of the morning in bed. I would not change that for the world. Why on earth would I want to leave Jack’s side to go out into the freezing air and go jogging around grey London streets? I don’t think so!!!
I saw a couple of Jack’s flatmates when we did get up. I have not met them before. They both moved in around a year ago. Jack introduced saying, “this special lady is Melody” – which made me blush. We made ourselves a cooked breakfast, nothing to write home about (or to write a blog post about 🙂 ). Jack had a tin of baked beans, an onion, some eggs and some bread. So we cooked and ate that in the enormous kitchen dining room at the centre of the flat.
Then we headed back to Jack’s living room. He and I watched one of the most perfect films ever produced “The Sound Of Music”. I cannot tell you how happy I was. My favourite film with my favourite person. Tears were trickling over from my eyelids as the opening bars of Julie Andrew’s stunning opening number began.
Jack and I in bed all morning, eating a cooked breakfast and on the sofa all afternoon. Then I had to say goodbye and come back here because I am working tomorrow. But when I reached home, I discovered that there is a special edition of Masterchef: The Professionals, which I am watching while I am typing this post up. It’s so good. The chefs are just phenomenal.
I am going to have a glass of wine and then I am going to head to bed. I am happy. I have had a wonderful (if slightly lazy) day and to me it was a delightful way to start the year. I couldn’t ask for more.
