I have found that the mark of a really good writer is that they can make the banal interesting and the mundane pregnant with meaning. I loved following you through your meanderings on your listless day and found myself thinking of those low-energy days of my own when even the simplest of tasks seem to require an unreasonable amount of energy, my tea tastes different and all I want to do in the afternoon is pretend to read and fall asleep with the undigested page on my chest. If you are planning a trip to Europe, please detour via or back through Ireland - you have an open invitation.
