I can't quite describe what a pleasure it has been to eat this crunchy risotto with a glass or two of red wine. Somehow it relaxed me and made me happy.
I was tense yesterday. I still had a bit of a headache, and I wasn't fully prepared for last night's rehearsal and I just wanted the day to be over. Today it was over. I had the freedom to let my hair down. Turned out a person - me - who goes to bed at midnight and wakes at five - might not be all that awake when that person comes home in the afternoon. I lay down to nap, ignored what I intended to do, felt slightly headachey still. Then I got up and had the crunchy risotto and wine and all is well. Funny how that can be.
