Despite this week's Hallmark Holiday (or maybe because of it) I really struggled to find a unique expression of true love for a photo. Don't get me wrong, we've celebrated Valentine's day in the past, but this year a few crayon drawn cards from the Boss and a nice bar of chocolate each sufficed. So, instead I thought I'd show you a photo of the one activity that I truly love: sleeping. And since my husband offered to be an hour late for work this morning so that he could do the school run and I could stay in bed, this photo sort of illustrates why I love him too!
I consider myself to be a semi-professional sleeper. There is rarely a time of day when I couldn't be tempted take a nap. And that wonderful advice someone gave, when I was a mother of a newborn, to nap whenever the baby does? Well, five years on, I still do whenever possible. (Yup, my five-year-old still takes a nap every afternoon. An hour, sometimes two. A girl after my own heart!) If Tom Hodgkinson advocates napping, then that's good enough for me. To quote "The morning is improved by its anticipation, and the afternoon and evening are improved because you are not exhausted." I couldn't agree more.
Go on, try it, take a nap. You'll love it.
