This is my week off, but I still have some work to do. I called in to work this morning, to finish off some sorting out I started yesterday, before I found out that we were going to be on the news, and the craziness snowballed. I had a chat about the news item, did what I wanted to do, then had my me-time.
I met a colleague for lunch and did a bit of shopping. In work, there are great people I hardly ever see, because they’re based in different buildings and our paths don’t tend to cross during the working day. The colleague I met today falls into this category, so that made it all the better to catch up. In the past, we have talked about having coffee once a week or fortnight, but never seem to get into this habit. I’m really going to make an effort to do this when I’m back in work. It’s too easy for weeks to fly by and for opportunities to be missed.
Tomorrow I have work to do of a different kind: essay writing for my uni course. Again, the support of others is going to help here, as three of us are getting together to motivate each other. We’ve taken this approach before with success, so hopefully it will make a daunting task more manageable.
It’s notoriously difficult to get the work/life balance right. I’m hoping to have the right amount of rest and enjoyment this week.
