This was the scene when I crossed the Meadows at 09:30 this morning. I was tempted to take a seat and enjoy the peace and quiet. Sensibly I carried on to work to spend the rest of the day in the office (having already participated in a breakfast meeting in town). I reached email inbox zero by 6pm. This means that I will be able to relax over the weekend.
This evening we popped out for a short while to raise a glass to our friend Sydney who is celebrating her half-way birthday.
Exercise today: sit-ups, weights and stretches, walk to work and back, walk to Sydney's party and back (21,700 steps).
