I know that, probably, I work too hard. 

I work most days. I work most nights. I don't get enough sleep. I don't have enough time for my friends or my family. But sometimes, you need a day off. It's fun to have fun, but you have to know how, as my best friend likes to say.  

So today we went to the beach.

We wrote messages in the sand, and built treasure chests filled with jewels. We found shells and pretended they were swords. We took our shoes off and felt the sand between our toes. Not for too long, mind, it was freezing cold.

We ate sausages and watched the sun go down, through the drizzle, then came home and dried off in front of a fire. 

Beach
It was fun.

As I put Flea to bed tonight, she said to me, "Mummy, I had such a wonderful day." 

So did I.
