For the first time since 13th May, there is no-one else in the house during the hours of daylight that's awake. OH has taken middle and youngest sons swimming, and oldest is still asleep.
This study leave thing has been driving me utterly crazy; middle son is wonderful, but he's restless, and he likes to show me things and tell me things, so I haven't had a moment since May that I could truly call my own. And oldest son tends to stay up for 26 hours then sleep for 18 so he's often around in those precious early hours after OH is asleep and I can indulge myself in a little light fic-reading. And now I have a whole thirty minutes before I'm supposed to call oldest to get up.
I'm really hungry, but I don't want to waste these precious minutes cooking, so I'll do some writing instead.
