I have had the most perfect day
Firstly, today the final direct debit came out of my account for a rather sizable loan which I have been paying back for four years now. It not only means that we will be considerably better off each month but also signals the end of an era which I am more than happy to leave behind.
So, that was a good start. I leapt out of bed after a really good night’s sleep and got on with a monster commission whilst Mr Monster got to work with a client who had arrived for a guitar lesson. I’m working on a keepsake babygro monster and it’s going rather well if I do say so myself! I have lots of new ideas for many and varied monster based projects…coming soon folks!
Late morning I trundled off round the corner from the flat to a yoga class. I used to be a hardcore, dedicated yogini and went to classes at least four nights every week. I knew all the Sanskrit names for the poses and could fold myself into some crazy positions, although I never quite mastered the head stand. For some reason I gave it up a few years ago but this week I have been to a couple of classes and am feeling the old passion flood back. Todays class was pretty intense with lots of twists and standing poses but my muscles are deliciously sore and my mind is quiet. Perhaps I will make an effortless head stand my goal.
Any UK readers will understand when I say that it is HOT here at the moment. 29 degrees and super-sunny today, so still with my post yoga flush I met up with a girlfriend to drink tea, eat Tim-Tams, and have a good old chinwag in the garden. I have nicely topped up my levels of vitamin D and also satisfied my craving for antipodean chocolatey treats!
I followed this up with some time in a beer garden with Mr Monster, so nice to spend some time together just chatting, sipping, and soaking up some rays before heading home for X-factor and some cat cuddles.
Right now I am typing this post on the beautiful little laptop which Mr Monster bought for me, while he plays ballads on his guitar and sings his heart out. I love to listen to him sing. He can make me laugh, especially with his hilarious interpretation of The Bad Touch by The Bloodhound Gang, and has been known to make me cry, not least when he sings what has become ‘our song’ – Colourful by The Verve Pipe. He sings with such depth of feeling, he has a great understanding of human emotion and this is a massive part of why I fell in love with him. I could listen to him sing all day every day.
All in all, today has been a perfect day. I will sleep soundly knowing that all is right with the world and that tomorrow will be full of monsters, music, and sunday roasts.
I have a good life.
