Another “to do” post to try to get my head around it all.
Recovering after 2 weeks of school holidays and a 4-day interstate trip while actually “on” 3 different projects still. One client quite unhappy – justifiably – I bravely left my laptop at home for the long weekend but they were trying to contact me – meanwhile, my phone was also flat and I took the wrong charger with me.
Today was about getting back to speed with work, spending some time with the organiser working on the dining room (OMG we HAVE a dining room), getting kids to swimming lessons. Also getting the washing machine fixed *yay*.
A woman I know from the creche (childcare) committee has a son in swimming lessons at the same time as Otto now, which is fun – nice to catch up after having spent so much time together over the last few years. Did a late night supermarket run and only bought OMGHEALTHY food. I got home and started craving chocolate but did I have any?? Oh no, I only bought OMGHEALTHY food. I am so dumb.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) I have meetings with at least 2 of the clients, possibly all 3. Also a meeting at school about a family fun day to be held in August (they want us to run games). (Note to self: Book kids for after-school care). Then term starts again for my French classes – same group, same teacher, hopefully no-one new. I’ve really enjoyed learning with these people and they are all super-keen which helps.
Thursday is free so far but may bring client meetings. I’m working to schedule them all later in the day rather than first thing in the morning – still super incredibly tired from the weekend and about to go to bed at 11:40 (crazy early for me). We’re trying to find a better time for the Bigster’s recorder lesson than late Thursday night, so I may not actually have to go out then (for once).
Friday is a free day – but not sure for how long. I may need to squeeze in a client meeting in the morning before hair (OMG my hair needs recolouring) and “beauty treatment” in the afternoon. I am experimenting with getting my eyelashes tinted. Then OMGGAMES here in the evening *yay* before a (relatively quiet) weekend kicks off. I’ve put in an ambit claim for some bsw time but it looks like most of my town have other plans so it may be super quiet.
Meanwhile – the really crazy countdown has begun. 11 weeks and 2 days till I leave. In 12 weeks I will be in OMGPARIS!, 13 in OMGBUDAPEST!, 14 in OMGESSEN! – and in 15 weeks I might even be at home again. Wow.
