I had no effects from my vaccination last week that a short nap couldn't take care of. I am a fanatic about naps and take one most days.
To me, naps are the ultimate luxury – only possible by working from home and having grown-up children. I organize my day around my naps and try to avoid any appointments after 1pm.
Back in the day when I worked in an office and had young children, a well-timed cup of tea would get me through, but I much prefer the charm of a pillow, a heating pad, and a heavy blanket to provide me with a rest after a hard morning's work at my computer.
Which book was it?
Question: Which book did the following quote come from?
“Behind the desk, there was a smattering of filing waiting for him, put off for weeks but accomplished in about six minutes once he put his mind to it.”
The Case of the Hidden Flame, Chapter One
“There. Perfect. Roach grinned conspiratorially at the face in the mirror and returned to the tiny police station’s reception desk, where he busied himself with unusual energy. “Shipshape and Bristol fashion,” he muttered as he straightened the lobby chairs and then belatedly flipped over the calendar of fetching Jersey postcards from August to September. Behind the desk, there was a smattering of filing waiting for him, put off for weeks but accomplished in about six minutes once he put his mind to it. He slid a deck of cards into a desk drawer. “No solitaire this shift, Constable Roach,” he admonished himself. “The new boss wouldn’t like it.”“
Have a lovely week, and happy reading!
