1. I get confirmation from my friend that he'll be home in Paris in September. So I immediately set about finding and confirming a flight to Paris for 1 September. I'm also planning to hop across to the UK after visiting with my friend. My holiday can't come soon enough.
2. A certificate thanking me for providing excellent service to my clients sits atop my desk. I've never received an award for my work before (you can't count book prizes in school). It's gratifying to know that what I do is appreciated.
3. I wake early and go for a swim. The water's cold, but I enjoy my 40 minutes of slowly swimming laps. I'd forgotten how calming and therapeutic swimming can be.
