What a difference a week makes…..

I’ve returned to work. Full time. Plus the second job, part time. So how has all that been going? Well. Let me approach that by describing the alternative routine I had established. Get up, sometimes early, sometimes later. Shower. Breakfast. Read a couple of chapters of whatever book was on the go (occasionally the bookclub choice). Check the emails, comment to blogs. Play some Spider Solitaire. Latterly, walk the coast road and back for a few miles. Prepare the dinner. Or maybe just stay in, play spider, check out the internet shopping. Call down to the gym in the evening (again, a later addition to the routine).

Unhealthy introspection could have resulted. Financial ruin was imminent. Life was in a bit of a time warp. But it was soooo good!! Yes. I was in pain. Yes. Energy levels were decimated. Yes. Daytime tv is dismal. But – now I have come face to face with most people’s reality again.

This is work, Day Six.

No time to stop and stare. (At the internet shopping – ebay cries out to me in my sleep!)

Time surely for a foreign holiday???


About xtrekki

OK - I've been doing this for almost a year now and have still not mastered the mysteries of blogging!! WHAT are widgets? What are tags? Where on the dashboard do I find them or an explanation of how I can get them to work for me? In other aspects of my life I am fairly sharp. I could certainly be advisor to Hercule Poirot in unraveling his most impenetrable of cases. So - why oh why can I not figure out how to manage this bloomin' blog???????

    You may have to clone yourself to fit in the internet shopping/ spider solitaire/reading/walking/gym etc now that 2 demanding jobs have reentered your life. Yes, time for a holiday…where are you going???

      Oh Tilly Bud, sometimes one just has to take those ten seconds and let everyone into one’s anguish!!!! How else would they hear about an otherwise unsung hero?????

    Kileen – Yes – cloistered amidst the quiet comtemplation of God’s good vineyards. That is most certainly where I need to be right now!!! Care to join me??

Looking forward to hearing from you...often!
