At the end of my work today, I begin my holidays.
Readers will know that I look forward to these three weeks each year. I can relax and nap, read and listen to music; I will have time at my disposal. Though I have a number of bigger chores to accomplish, I will be completing them according to my own schedule, and working for myself, as it were.
This year, during my time in Idylland, I may visit the beautiful seaside district of Wellstrand, alternately storm-tossed and sun-bathed. I will of course be taking the cats. Consulting my records, I see that the only cats I have now that I had last year at this time are Renn and Neville, my oldsters. Hector was with me then, as was my very-oldster, sweet Minuet. This year, Percival, Imogen and Dabney are new, and I have left instructions to be notified by telegram as soon as Astrid has her kittens.
I will be writing on my blog during my holidays, of course, whenever I think that anything catching my fancy should be shared. For now, though, I’d better see if the cats have packed their bags yet…
