I have just sat down to write some blog posts. It is one of my two days off work that I have a week and it is 1pm. ‘Thanks for the background’ I hear you say. 1pm is no ordinary time in my day. 1pm is nap time. A blissful hour of time for me. The time I run around the house for the first fifteen minutes tidying up scraps of lunch, folding washing and loading the dishwasher. Then I sit down, I open my laptop and I write.
