A proper day off this time…
This morning we got up as usual and made our way to the kitchen for breakfast, only for our hosts to suggest taking another day off, so back to bed we went! We slept in until around 11:00 for the first time since leaving Buenos Aires which was wonderful, and then headed for breakfast just before midday. We couldn’t really go exploring much further than the farm itself which left us somewhat restricted, so we thought we’d carry on in the same lazy fashion that we started and just stay in watching movies.
First we watched Big Daddy, because Abbie references it all the time and I never know what she’s going on about. After that everything started to make sense, like the time we walked through Central Park and she started chuckling to herself about people on roller skates falling over. I guess if you’re reading this and don’t know what on earth I’m talking about you should go and watch Big Daddy too.
By around 14:30 we’d done as little as wake up, eat breakfast and sit around in front of the TV, so decided to be productive again and cook more food. We had egg on toast as a late lunch, and then decided to be amazing volunteers and do a bit of work on our day off, because it would have felt a little too lazy if we didn’t. All we done was lay some decking in place ahead of nailing it down tomorrow when we are back to work, which felt a bit like a real life jigsaw puzzle, and only took twenty minutes or so but gave us something noteworthy to bring up if anybody decided to ask what we’ve been up to.
It was straight back to the sofa after that for another six hours of nothing but movies. We watched Mao’s Last Dancer, then Valentine’s Day, then The Jungle Book, and that brought our day to an end. We’ll probably do something exciting with our next day off, whenever that may be, but not doing much today was actually quite nice – especially after our two days of overtime.
