3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
"Missus free" Thursday went completely according to plan! Son got to play his X-Box on the big TV all evening and I online-self-promoted until my back was sore! Woken (a little too) early by the cats, I begin Friday in front on another flyer - all things to be grateful for!
I will be going to the Weekend Job for a rest! It's very easy to have a grateful quiet mind at the moment, as I know exactly what I want to achieve and how to achieve it, and have blissful circumstances at home to do it in.
