I guess I’m in denial about returning to work next week, and wearing the holiday clothes is my way (I guess) of making the holiday last longer. Don’t worry, I am washing them.
I love my job (mostly) and I feel really lucky to be able to do what I do. But when I left to go overseas, I think I’d be the first to admit I was exhausted. It can be a stressful job and sometimes I’ve felt squeezed. But now I feel totally refreshed, and probably a lot more in control of my life than when I left.
I’ve also discovered over the last few months just how much I also really enjoy my own time, too. I love getting out of bed at about eight o’clock each morning. I love sitting around in the morning reading email, surfing the net, doing all of those kinda things. I love going out for a coffee. I love just having lots of time for myself. And the weather’s been great. But my holiday is coming to an end, as I return to work on Tuesday.
So I’m making the most of the next few days. Today, for example, I met a guy who I’ve been chatting with one Facebook for a while. The weird thing is we were born on the same day of the same year, making us exact peers. Over coffee, we established we have a lot of common interests.
And then tonight, it was the usual Wednesday night at the pub, chatting about life, the universe and ABBA.
