Much to my joy the appointment was cancelled, and rather than doing the 200km round trip I got a bonus day at home. 3 loads of washing, a sparkling clean car inside and out, some gardening, some farm stuff, some cooking and some time just at home with my 2 youngest Muddy Kids was just what I felt like.
I love a bonus day, I find that mentally because I think it's an extra day I am so much more productive, I keep on the move and power through my jobs, feeling really good because I'm crossing things off my list. I don't know why, as really I know it's the same as it would have been on my non-work day, but the power of the mind is a curious thing. Now if I could just find a way for it to trick me into exercising more than I am I think I'd be on a winner.
Do you have the same thing going on when you get a 'bonus' day or is it just me?
