This evening, when I left the office, I went for a post-work-drink. It was great, but those two glasses of wine have made more of an impact that I might have hoped, so tonight just a quick note of appreciation...
Thank you to those people who obligingly put their lights on and leave their curtains open. Thank you for giving me a glimpse into your living room, and style ideas for my own. Thank you for piling books in precarious piles and for ironing left on tables - they make me feel better about my own housekeeping (and lack thereof). And thank you for the snapshot of your life, be it dinner for many or TV for one.
But mostly, thank you standing in the window and flexing your muscles, whilst wearing only your pants, just as my train goes past your house. Thanks for that. Same time tomorrow?
