I’m going to have coffee with my friend, and former co-worker tomorrow morning and we’ll talk about our weeks. I know her partner is overseas, and her work is currently full on as they gear up to their annual conference.
My week has also been busy and quite different to any I’ve had in a while. Surprising highs, a ridiculous mishap, and a nasty little government missive in the mailbox.
I’ve had my first two sessions of volunteering for an organisation that supports teens affected by cancer, and loved it. The work is very much mind in neutral and repetitive. I used to have a big title and my days were unpredictable with intense situations. Is it any wonder I’m enjoying this? The environment is so lovely too! both physically and spiritually. An old old building with many of its’ original features celebrated, yet modernised to be so functional. And the culture and people – it’s just so comfortable and welcoming. Given the work they do you’d hope so, right?
I saw my old nutrionist and told her I was struggling. Often hungry. She made some suggestions around my breakfasts and lunches, and yay I’m enjoying food choices again And have lost weight this week.
Everyone has been unwell again. Not massively, but flu season, and having a young child/grandchild is exhausting and so the parents took some time off this week. Babysitting cancelled but some visits to play – just fun 🙂
In the middle of the week, after several months of drought I suddenly had two phone calls in a row, setting up interviews! Same day I received notice I’m summoned for Jury duty again…
Yesterday I went for one of the interviews. It was obvious very early on, to them and me, that I wasn’t right for the job but the conversation was good, and I left happy. Late evening I mangled my thumb – mashed it between a wrought iron gate and a large, moving dog’s lead. Hard to explain how or why that happened! OR the level of pain… barely slept last night.
And this week the wind has been everywhere! I’m just telling you that – she knows. We cancelled our original plan of seeing the sculptures at Barangaroo for a sheltered coffee and a muffin.
Has your week played out as expected?
