Lazy days


I don't feel like doing anything today, I think I'll just chill out, stay in my bed, and let the world pass me by.

Yup! I reckon I'll just mellow, think my own thoughts, do a spot of daydreaming perhaps, maybe a snooze or two.

Inactivity is such a wonderful thing, the key to longevity, a necessity, and a praiseworthy trait.

That's settled it then, today I am doing nothing! No-o-o-thing!!

A bit like yesterday really.

And the day before.

It's not too bad being an oyster, the hours are good, and I don't have too many pressures.

Right then, time to get down to some serious loafing...

If I could just manage to spit out this annoying piece of grit...

    1. Aw, thanks Helen, that's really kind of you. I don't participate in Twitter myself, and it's heartwarming to know that someone is out there tweeting for me, Thanks very much. :-)

  5. I love loafing when I can convince myself to do it. I've also been in those places where the bit of grit somehow produces as much stress as an hour on the job would have. I can ruin almost anything for myself.

    1. I think the bit of grit may certainly ruin this particular oyster's day of rest. :-)

  6. Leaving pearl jokes tactfully aside; what could be the ultimate source of your sybaritic hero’s worst nightmare, I wonder: a lemon tree?

  8. Well I wasn't expecting that! At the oyster mention I thought you'd be going down the route of, Oh sh*t, I'm being eaten

  11. I'd go for a proper oyster loaf over a string of pearls any day. Put the grits on the side with a cold mug of beer.

    1. Hiya Harry, it's good to hear from you, I hope things are good with you. :-)

      I've never actually eaten oyster, (Probably didn't like to wake them up) The cold mug of beer sounds good though. :-)

    1. Heheh! It reminds me of one or two people I know myself too Icy. :-)

  13. Ah, how I do enjoy doing nothing, and how undervalued 'tis, at least in the US. Always that pressure to do something, from within or without.

    1. Hi Richard, I think it's probably not a good thing to have too much time on our hands with nothing to do, but it is nice to have a little now and then, isn't it? :-)

    1. Hiya Katherine, I think in the oyster world Sundays may be double-chillout days. :-)
