Reading

Reading. Georgette Heyer, in large quantities. I'm tired - basically exhausted. January was a long month, and February isn't going to feel much better at the current rate of progress. I want to get out on my bike. I want not to be tired.

I want not to whinge, so I'll shut up now.

I thoroughly agree with your choice of author for when you're feeling like this. I find Heyer very soothing. Have you tried the audiobooks? Listening to her books is even more restful and reassuring than reading them, and they keep your mind positively occupied while you're engaged in tasks which leave too much room for thinking, like driving or tidying or cooking. They're also excellent for knitting!

Once I'd read through Heyer (by or by ear) I re-read Mary Stewart's romantic suspenses, which are also wonderful comfort reading. Unfortunately there seem to be no audiobooks of them. But being transported to France or Corfu or Greece in the 1950s and 60s is very cheering, especially since it's usually nice and warm where her heroines have their adventures.

All perfect for recharging your batteries!
