A day by myself

Reading well is one of the great pleasures that solitude can afford you.
― Harold Bloom

Is there anything better than a day all to yourself? I can be a very social person, but I also crave solitude. Big time! Today I had the day off from work and had such a good time. After sending Mr. Boyfriend off to work, I slouched on the couch in my kitchen, had some breakfast and coffee while catching up on all the blogs I’m following – I had so many unread mails from Bloglovin’ (all the way back from March!) and it was wonderful to just read post after post from all my favorite bloggers. I’m following a nice mix of Danish book bloggers and vintage fashion bloggers from all over the world. I can always find something to satisfy my cravings for book talk and beautiful vintage outfits.

Then I hit the gym where I started listening to a new audio book, Flashforward. After that I was starving and went to my new favorite cafe on Nørrebro, bevar’s, for lunch and some “real” reading. It’s such a nice and quiet place, perfect for reading – I went to the very same café during the Easter holiday when Mr. Boyfriend and I went on a reading date. I love going to cafés by myself. I can just read and read for hours without a sense of time and place.

When I’d finished lunch, I went outside to continue my reading in the sun with a nice cup of coffee. Pure bliss!

Now I’m waiting for Mr. Boyfriend to come home – hope he’ll make me some dinner. Yeah, that’s me – even when I’ve got the day off, I refuse to cook. Mr. Boyfriend just called saying he’s stuck at work and won’t be home for dinner. That means I can continue my day of blissful solitude. I think I’m going for rye bread with avocado, a pot of tea, Californication on Netflix and continue my knitting project.

What do you like to do when you’ve got an entire day to yourself?

  1. Oh, yes, sometimes just to be alone and read and have a day off from people is the best thing. I pity those who cannot be alone even for a minute.

    I discovered your blog few days ago and I have to say – I am hooked. Books and vintage fashion? Great combination for me. 🙂

    1. I’m glad you enjoy visiting Anka! I have so much pleasure writing this blog, and I just love it when people enjoy what I do – it’s double up on the joy 😀

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Åh hvor lyder det bare som en skøn dag med pauseknappen tilpas i bund. Sommetider er det bare alt, hvad man behøver; en stilheds- og hyggedag helt for sig selv 🙂

    Og åh, er “Posession” egentligt god? Den står så højt på min læse-liste..

    1. Ja, det var en fantastisk dag – min hverdag er som regel rimelig presset med arbejde etc. så det er fantastisk med en dag helt hvor mig selv – uden kollegaer, kæreste og venner 😉

      Og ja Possession er rigtig god og meget speciel. Har du læst noget Byatt før?
