reading in bed on a saturday morning

Long days follow jaded nights

And duvets offer warm escape

From lengthy rain filled mornings.

Knowing there is no alarm

To pull me from this half-wit haven

Is something good to punctuate

A week of ups and downs.

And though the rain is hammering

At rattling window panes,

The pile of books beside my bed

Offers up some happy hours

Of shy and introvert escape.

    What a lovely thought! A comfy duvet, a cuppa, a couple of biscuits or a scone, a book… Yes, I could definitely do that! Sometimes we need to take that time for ourselves, especially in a job like yours, that can be very stressful.
