I have never been as glad to see the end of two working days in all my life. Manic is does not even come close to describing what it has been like. I hardly had enough energy left to take my laptop out of it’s case and set it up for my journey home on the train.
Going off on leave is stressful, the art of calmly clearing up all the odds and sods that need done before leaving is clearly something I have not yet mastered. I’m more of a run around in a flap, but eventually get there kind of person. I pity anyone who reads the last few e-mails I sent, I doubt they were legible. But I made it, and as a reward I do not have to think about work again until Friday….oh happy days!!
I am sure there are things I have not done, that will come to me in the middle of the night and wake me from peaceful slumber. I have already e-mailed myself with things that I need to remember and can think of a few more that I need to send myself when I get home.
This Personal Secretary lark is easy….SAID NO ONE EVER!!
I could see through it if I was able to go home and relax, but there is still shopping to be done and dinner to prepare and goodness knows what form the Mothership will be in considering I have deviated from the normal routine. The great unknown lies ahead.
I really want this weekend to be incident free, no let me rephrase that, I really need this weekend to be incident free. The last two have been mentally draining and I am in dire need of some rest and relaxation, excluding the housework and cooking duties that is, some things never change.
So what lies ahead? I could promise you that I am going to do all my drawings for the Cartoon Craziness Challenge and regale you every day with funny stories that will have you falling off your chairs with laughter. I could also tell you that May Dupp is going to partake of her usual weekend antics leaving a trail of destruction in her wake.
I could promise all of that, but I won’t, because I’m going to shop, eat, clean up, perhaps kill a few things on the Xbox and then go to bed and sleep. After that there might be a little more sleep, and then some sleeping thrown in for good measure.
What happens after that is anyone’s guess!!
Happy Friday my most favourite eejits!

Congrats on making it through to the end of another work week! I hope you get some much-needed downtime and a bit of relaxation this weekend. In other news……I spent this morning beginning to read your posts on the “alien leg.” You mentioned it in your comment the other day so I came over and started hunting down info. Quite a few posts there. Will comment further once I’m through them all and understand where you’ve been a bit better, but just wanted to say I’m really sorry for your fall and to hang in there with things….it’s not always easy, but it is always worth it….even with alien legs and personal secretary jobs. :)
I think there is about 6 or so, I lost interest in the end, it was what it was and I just had to get on with it and face facts that I am stuck with her forever lol
WOW! I am keeping my fingers crossed for a low-incident weekend. I’m glad you have a few days anyway. You’ll probably need one or two of those to just stare at the wall and find your equilibrium. Wishing you all the best. I’ll be checking in. :-)
You know that’s a great idea, chill out music in the background and just staring at the wall to ground myself. That could be quite therapeutic.

Sometimes you have to go with what works. ;-)
Sleep worked, well somewhat anyway, although the elusive lie in still evades me :)
