It seems I have to leave the country to actually sit down and relax for a bit
Up too early for me, 9 AM, though given that I had already had 8 hours of sleep I was just pleased that I made it through the night without deciding that 5 AM was my wakeup hour. lilithmagna was amenable to leaving the house for breakfast, so we went to a cute little diner on the high street where I downed a plate of egg, sausage, ham, grilled tomato, and what I thought would be toast but was actually good old soft white bread held together with butter. I added a bowl of beans, wiped it out, ordered a second cup of heavily creamed tea, then decided to top off with some rhubarb crumble. "You'll want that with custard," Lili suggested, so that's how I ordered it, and the whole thing came in a bowl, the crumble swimming in a pool of yellow sweet (and warm) custard sauce. Yum. I polished that off, too, and now I'm feeling full and pretty content, happy to lie around in the flat (where it's nice and warm) and spend what little energy I have figuring out what to wear tonight. Karaoke is all decided, but clubbing wear is still in the air.
