The idea was to swing back into some kind of routine today. We were all too tired, getting up not close to seven but more towards nine o’clock With some exercise for Pádraig in the morning and getting a few things worked out, we had a brunch, rather than the planned breakfast. Following on to this, the day gained its own dynamic. In other words, not much of what I had planned for the day worked out.

Did that matter? – Not at all. Plans change and at times beyond our control.
