Historically a day of rest, although since having the twins resting doesn’t come to high up on the list of ‘achievable’ activities.
But since we’ve been together, my boy and I have tried to eat a long, leisurely breakfast and read the Sunday papers.
Him: the sports pages. Me: the magazine.
And throughout the day — then over the course of the week — each section is glanced over, pored over or discussed; until it’s used to wrap up the week’s food and recycled.
We’ve always take The Sunday Times and a tabloid.
I love the combination of the two. One fulfils my nosy desire for celebrity gossip, whilst the other gives both of us reading material the for the entire week.
Plus I like the diversity.
In this week’s new look Sunday Times mag, for example. Cozying up alongside Taylor Swift, was an article on swans and how they stay faithful. Closely followed by another on Dita Von Teese.
And — possibly — my favourite article from this week’s magazine. A recipe on how to make chestnut pancakes, with bacon and syrup.
Perfect fodder for a leisurely morning, spent reading and eating.
And eating and reading.
Although, for me, nothing — nothing — beats my nan’s secret recipe marmalade on hot buttered toast.
Washed down with a glass of OJ.
The perfect accompaniment for a lazy morning, reading the papers.
Do you have a Sunday morning ritual? Are you a lazy weekender or an ‘up-and-at-em’ kind of person?
