the delights of temporary anarchy

The bed is a mess, which is a sure indicator that Z is not around. Currently it contains:

books, pens, papers, assorted crumbs, laptop and my two cat boyfriends (one curled up on the pillow next to my head, the other spooning my bent knees). This is highly convivial, and all the sweeter for its brevity.

I am enjoying the last few days of living in my naturally feral state, in which I stay up half the night and sleep in until noon and don't leave the house until absolutely necessary. This is just a selection of behaviours that suit my personality of eccentric artiste, although Z would I am sure argue that they ill behoove a woman of almost thirty.

And yet, and yet, I cannot bring myself to stop relishing this brief, opportunistic return to my teenagerhood. Though the sensible routines of parenthood are the perservers of whatever sanity I have left there is a part of me that feels suffocated in them. That is horrifed by the slow onery of the unchanging.

So party on, inner anarchist*! Enjoy this reprieve between children! It will be after all, years before you once more get the chance to sleep in late or stay up at night of your own free will and unpunished by the tyranny of morning.

My tribe!

There is a particular joy in reading several books at the same time, I've always found.

I swear the older I get, the more fickle my mood and my attention span so I normally love flitting between different books depending on which one I feel like reading at the moment. I also appear to not have particular difficulty with holding disparate storylines in my head.

oh man I am also a 'keep everything in the bed' person. currently there are like five books, a couple magazines, pens and notebooks, probably tweezers and a mirror, and who knows what else.

It's so weirdly comforting to know that people I like share my proclivities. Bed hoarders of the world unite!

I could happily live like this, Brian would kill me. He is horrified enough by my bedside table and gets tetchy if I sleep past 10am...enjoy it!

I appear to be in good company, this is excellent.

Before chillies and I merged households he said he'd never need to worry about me having another lover as long as the other side of the bed was covered in stuff when he arrived to visit. A bedside table just isn't big enough.

A bedside table just isn't big enough.

It's the motto I live by.
