And how is everyone doing today?
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I had one of those weeks!
By the way, I haven’t decided yet, whether we’re having coffee at mine or at one of those “every street corner” green bannered coffee houses although I am not too keen on their alleged efforts of tax avoidance, so we might have to find an indie one. That’s if you don’t mind. One thing is certain, the indie coffee will probably be more drinkable than mine until I have mastered those barista skills that is.
This next line is to acknowledge the loss of two greats! David Bowie and Alan Rickman who will be terribly missed. At the same time, bringing things back into perspective, my blogger friend Ryan also lost his mother this week so…while we’re grieving for the celebs of our world, let’s also have a thought for the not so well known little guy.
Now let’s get back to my week!
Don’t get me wrong, it was not a bad one, work was ….well work is work, but at least I found this week particularly exciting, so that was a plus. Let’s hope it carries on! I was spent by day 4 so Friday in the office was weird. I was walking around completely deflated, pretty much like a used chewing-gum. There was no going out for drinks with friends after that day. Nope!
The plan was to head straight home…with a detour by the after school club to pick up my young one. Pizza and a glass of wine!! Not posh but a comfort no fuss dinner. Oh and my son had a watered down fruit juice if you’re wondering 😊.
On the fun side now, and yes I did have a little fun. I went to an author’s book launch on Thursday. You would think that in my “line of blogging”, I would attend quite a few of those events, but sadly no. I am after all, full time wife, full time mum, full time employee AND most importantly FULL TIME ME, so fun is a little scarce at times, but brilliant when had!
Did I make an extra effort to go to this book launch? Oh Yes! I had it planned since before Santa decided to show up with his round belly in his timeless red piece. I had to travel a bit, as London is definitely not a 5 mins drive, but you know what?! Seeing Liz de Jager with that big smile on her face was totally worth it!
Oh, I am the one on the right by the way! With my blogger friend Sally on the left.
Now, let’s recap!
We did work, fun and also acknowledged loss, so what about simple life pleasures?
You’d be surprised but I recently discovered one as recently as Monday actually, and I have to say, since then, its use has become a constant every evening in our household.
You see this?! That’s my reading corner.
Got it for Xmas, complete with a throw for those cold evenings, cushions and a must have stack of books. Well those “ME TIME” moments have been made sweeter by eventually turning on the fireplace that had remained unused for the last 2 years.
And if you’re wondering about the reading corner when not used for reading, let me reassure you that it is still quite multi-functional and that it has seen its fair share of popcorn on movie night already😁.
Now, if we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
