Balance beam

Ah, the many balls we all juggle. The myriad hats we have to don. As ever, in my natural state of optimism and sunniness, I am so aware how blessed I am to have my life and the many gorgeous people in it, but this evening finds me very, very tired (but I am determined to blog before bed. Darn stubborn streak!).

I think this blahness is a simple sum of various factors….a loooong day at work, a lovely realxed weekend with the boy (and then a journey home to my empty wee flat :(), working out more, and just plain Mondayness. Plus, I’m kind of tired of this living arrangement, this feeling like I lurch from weekend to weekend at times… Weekends are full of people and the chance to socialise, and during the week that’s just not really on my remit. The days of a Tuesday drink with Sally (now in Vietnam) or dinner with the girls (most married, some with kids now – I’m one of the youngest at my school) are past, and do you know what, I miss that. I must arrange a movie with Rachel and coffee at least with the girls soon. You know, in that ample free time I don’t really have at the moment….


I’m such a doofus.


This weekend was lovely though. Normal Saturday classes, but really constructive and useful – I was hungry to get stuff done, and so were the kids. Brill. Then a few bits of admin, a quick late lunch, a train to London. Then I walked through London for a couple of miles, from Marylebone to Holborn. It’s starting to feel more and more real now that I’m going to be living there in a matter of months. I’m enjoying encountering the city as a native-to-be, rather than a visitor.

Then the tube from Holborn to Matthew’s for just a lovely evening – spaghetti bolognese and snuggling on the sofa, and chatting, and red wine, and TV. Just what I needed! Then a lazy Sunday of TV and online flathunting and chatter and silliness. Bliss.

And then Monday, and work, and sunshine. And next weekend should be win too – I’m off to Essex to see the lovely Hannah! Hey, if you have to lurch from weekend to weekend….lurch with a little finesse, right!

Hope everyone’s Mondays have been good to them.


PS And, to end on a smile, today I learned that no-one’s ever so grown up that they don’t fall foul of the basic rules of dressing from time to time. It took me till lunchtime today to realise I had my underwear on back to front! FAIL. Yeah, that’s how busy it is round here at the mo!

    I think I once wore a sweater inside out for a whole morning.

    Enjoy being the youngest! My intern just turned 25 and said (oops), “Oh man, I’m old!” Then she looked at the rest of us and blushed.

    And that is why I insist upon folding my underwear, even though it’s really small and my husband thinks that folding it is a silly waste of time. I put it on in the morning before I have my glasses on, so I’d be very prone to jumping in backwards!
