Free Time

I bought a DVD last week and ever since I've been looking for an opportunity to view it- and coming to the realisation that there's never- in any day- a movie length span of time when I don't have to be on the alert, making meals or cups of coffee, escorting my mother about and so on. I don't have a lot to do here- I can't complain that it's onerous- but what it is is continuous. From getting up in the morning to going to bed at night I'm never off duty- even though all I have to do most of the time is " stand and wait".

Today, though, is our day off and Kirstie's here doing the things I'd normally do. Usually Ailz and I go out for lunch and have adventures but Ailz was very tired and has gone to bed and I took advantage of the situation to shut myself up in the study and watch my movie. I can't tell you how good it was to have two uninterupted hours to myself.
