Well, hello there!
*waves from behind the door and wanders in*
How are we all? I know, I know, I haven’t been around! I’m so sorry.
I knew work would be super busy during this project I’m on and I’m pleased to say I’m at the stage where my workload is now tapering off and I got through it relatively unscathed. It’s been a bit stressful, but all in all is going well so not all bad! There’s still a few weeks left, but it’s slowing down.
One change at work I have made recently is my hours. I’m incredibly lucky I have a boss who knows me really well and allows me to do things even if I don’t have a ‘conventional’ reason for it (like children or the like). Anyone who has ever had to deal with me before noon knows – I am not a morning person. I changed my hours slightly to 10-6 rather than 9-5 in an effort to combat my morning grumpiness and I’m happy that it’s working.
I still get up at the same time but I’m able to get an hour’s workout in, have breakfast, chill out a bit and wake up properly before getting ready for work. I don’t have to rush so I’m able to do my hair and makeup properly rather than just the basics and I’m all set. Having the extra hour is perfect and by the time I get to work for 10 I’m smiling and overall a much nicer person than the rushed, grumpy woman who hates mornings. I even have time to stop at the shop or get petrol before work if needed, like today!
Another big plus is I miss all the traffic 🙂
We actually made it to Paris a few weeks ago, finally. I’ll write a post on that later, though. I still haven’t gone through the photos or anything. I’ll say I’m glad it’s done and I’ve gone now and it was a very different experience from the first visit to the UK.
I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately, I’m not sure what exactly is going on. Maybe it’s my usual ‘Autumn slump’ but it feels a bit different. I don’t feel like I’m getting depressed though, and that’s the main thing. I’m just finding it difficult to motivate myself to do much of, well, anything. I’m looking forward to the holidays, I’m working until December 19th then I’m off until after the first week in January.
It’ll be nice and I can’t believe how close it is, roll on Christmas!
