Mundanity

The mundane can carry its own charm; the skill is in finding it and capturing it before it disappears or you walk straight past it. Hobbies all seem to tend towards admin.

Time on my own

  Time on my own makes me cook things, things I wouldn't normally cook with 3 vegetarians living in the same house. Slow barbequed brisket being one... ...and roast belly pork on tabouleh with improvised master stock being another. Other things time on my own seems to make me do is binge-watch old TV series and fall asleep on the sofa. Also, I make beer, as much beer as I have the capacity for in my system. Unfortunately what it hasn't done is provoke me to write any more or amend my habits around meditation or alcohol consumption. Clearly some form of cognitive intervention is going to have to take place for these. Bugger.
