I am so incredibly busy at work it's crazy. I also put up my hand for a project and.............. people had done nothing for about 8 months so I'm working my butt off to still meet deliverables by June.
Isn't that charming?
should be 5... and we're 3 so every time emails come around with "can
someone take this?" we all just ignore the email til I eventually cave.
Flip. Anyway, things are looking up - another person starts in May :)
I keep chanting to myself, "what's the worse that can happen if I drop a few balls? They can fire me". And so what? So amazing to have perspective :)
the midst of all this crazy, schools broke up and a very strange thing
happened: I found myself taking out the bread and lunch boxes that
evening before I realised it was SCHOOL HOLIDAYS.
Sadly, I don't have to make lunch anymore.
Even more sad, the kids seem to have left their ears at school.
(they received excellent reports, by the way)
some point in the work crazy, I got a bee in my bonnet (I saw a blog
post somewhere where they used the phrase "wild hair") that we needed to
go on holiday. You know, easing stress by cramming work meant for 12
days into 8 days. Sane things like that.
woman's email came through one night when I was answering emails on the
ipad, D was there, we had a quick chat and boom, boom, a holiday was
I take months (years!) to decide on a paint colour and a holiday is decided upon in minutes.
Fortunately the boss approved this sudden leave and it was sorted.
We had a lovely 5 days away last week - pics to follow - I've just finished the set before we left.
I think we need to book the next one pronto so I can have something to look forward to.
scary aside - I overheard the kids talking and they seem to think
"holiday" means "vacation". Connor was telling Kendra that maybe we will
take them to England for the next holiday. HA! Never :)
were so moany/ whiny about walking down ONE street in Pilgrim's Rest
and I stopped all of us to say, "THIS means we will NEVER be able to go
to a city because you need to WALK".
And now we're back! Two loads of laundry done; many more to go (waiting for Nanny S).
waited til we got back to buy Easter eggs and there was literally
nothing in the shops except a few boxes of marshmallow eggs. CNA had a
few chocolate bunnies which I bought. D says this was a bad plan; I
can't think of a better one for avoiding the chocolate for me, and
keeping the excess with the kids at bay. (No offence to any of you who went wild; if I wasn't on Weigh-Less, I may have done the same)
And now, back to work. Let's Do This.
But first, how have you been doing? Did you/ are you going away on holidays?
How was the Easter weekend?
