2. TODAY IN MY LIFE
Blogging, the milk-run and ironing in the morning. Long meditation after lunch, then client follow-up and me time before missus time in the evening.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
With missus fully recovered and the weather moderate, today is the first routine Sunday of the year. Routine Sundays are about setting everyone up for the coming week, getting the laundry done, the milk supply at capacity and myself and Missus rested, cuddled and comforted. More than any other day of the week, it's about simply being, as projects and events are not thought about. One consolation of my business venture failing is that I'm no longer sacrificing one routine Sunday a month.
Though Sunday is not my favourite day (which is Monday - unusual I know!), it is the day which brings the most refreshment and restoration, a unique comfortable padded buffer zone between one week and the next.
4. TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
Are you getting the necessary rest and space you need to maintain your wellbeing?

7. NOW THAT'S FUNNY!
Russell Howard on the Jonathon Ross Show
Conventional wisdom says a shower saves more water than a bath, but with more
powerful, longer-lasting showers, this is not always true. An average bath uses
80 litres of water; an eight-minute power shower spurts 136 litres.
