Laundry, the weekend and holidays.

image Pictured here is my laundry load for today. It’s roughly three week’s worth of laundry, but I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had the time to do it recently. Today I simply must get to it, because I only have two clean T-shirts left.

There’s a long queue for the coin-operated washing machines though, so here I am in my room, still in my pyjamas at 2.31 in the afternoon, with a slight case of the sniffles.

Why am I still in pyjamas? Well because, I deserve a rest, since my weekend was reduced to 1 day, what with there being tests every Saturday morning. I’ve decided that I shall not lift a finger to do anything today, apart from my laundry, which at the moment I can’t be bothered to begin yet because I don’t feel like walking all the way down to the first floor to check if the queue is any shorter.

There’s a one week holiday next week, for All Saints’ day, but I won’t be going anywhere. Farid did ask me if I’d like to go to Amsterdam with him, but I chose not to because just the thought of travelling tires me. Travelling involves so much work: buying a ticket, booking a place to stay, packing, getting to the airport, sitting in the plane, getting off the plane,  getting to the hostel, walking around, figuring out meals...argh,!!! Noooo! Just thinking about it makes me want to take a nap.  

And then when you get back, there’s all the laundry to handle, when all you really want to do is lie down and sleep. But then your bed is dusty, and your room feels a bit stuffy, and it’s so full of dust that as soon as you step in and inhale you get a pulmonary disease and die.

So yeah, that’s why I’m staying home while my friends go to Disneyland Paris, Toulouse, Toulon, Germany, Amsterdam, and Spain. Well, I don’t feel like I’m missing out, because I’ve already been to Paris, the Amsterdam experience can easily be recreated right here in Nice, and I’ll just cook some tortillas to make up for not going to Spain.

My idea of the perfect way to spend the one week break is to just stay home, idly indulging in ursine hibernation. Yes! That sounds so much more relaxing.

I should go check if the laundry machines have freed up. Right after I eat these 6 fingers of KitKat. It says on the wrapper “Have a break, have a KitKat”, and that’s precisely what I’m doing.
