I’ve been trying to eat right and sleep right and exercise right. I’ve been putting as much effort in as possible at work, helping each kid in whatever way they might need (be it reading, rounders coaching, a listening ear, or advice to yank their socks up). I’ve been counting down the days till I’m curled up and cosy with my boy.
I’ve been emailing and writing notes, trying to catch the phone when it rings (and failing far too often) and read up my favourite blogs (and succeeding most of the time). I’ve been thinking good thoughts and praying for all sorts of people and marvelling at the wonder and beauty strewn across my life and the lives of those around me. I’ve been spending more time outdoors.
I’ve been planning my move to London, the primary stuff (the wheres, the hows, the whens…) and the secondaries (when do I sell my car? What choir should I join?). I’ve been watching TV again, and finding a soft spot for teen dramas (‘Gossip Girl’ and ‘90210’), comedy-news (‘Newswipe’ and ‘The Daily Show’) and a good old fashioned cardie-drama (‘All The Small Things’). I’ve been keeping up with my chores. I’ve been planning visits. I’ve been reading and researching more.
No wonder I’m a little sleepy….
What I really need is a long weekend.
Which is, as luck would have it, exactly what kicks off tomorrow!
Three and a half days off, filled with friends and cuddles and fun (and sunshine, hopefully, if the British weather co-operates!). Loads and loads and loads of time with Matthew (:D); Friday lunch with some colleagues, always a nice way to kick off; dinner with Cheryl and Ben; brunch with Kathryn, Isaac, Xander and Tom; a picnic in the park; lunch with Emily and Katie and Siobhán; and time for napping and relaxing and reading too….bring it on.
I hope you all have equally awesome weekends on the horizon!
