Another hectic week… I am so over the Christmas rush now! Actually… I don’t think anything I did this week was anything to do with the Christmas rush. It was just hectic.
My week involved: a day’s training in the office of a local company who want me to help out in the new year; a trip to Wave 105 to record this week’s five things; a fantastic talk from Doug Richard (off Dragons Den), making fun plans with friends for the new year… oh, and trying to cram in a ton of actual work around it.
So how did I do with this week’s goals?
Meditate twice – Fail, fail, fail, fail. I woke up before S on Sunday morning and was tempted to sneak out of bed to meditate before she got up… but by the time I came back from the bathroom, she was awake. My evenings just seem to be running away from me to be honest. Maybe I should leave this one until after the Christmas rush has died down a bit and I have time to scratch my bum!
Spend some quality time with S – I think I did okay with this. We had a chilled day off on Wednesday, and on Thursday instead of taking her to her friend’s for tea I brought her home and we chilled out together. We’ve both been feeling quite run down lately and much as I knew she would enjoy going to her friend’s for tea, I knew she would benefit more from a nice quiet evening and an early night. We had a lovely weekend together too; we’ve one more week of nursery and then two weeks off together. I can’t wait!
Get ahead with some work – er… well, the one day I had to actually do any work, I was ill and ended up passing out on the sofa. I’m still flying by the seat of my pants, work-wise and only doing work as I hurtle toward deadlines. This week doesn’t look much better to be honest; I don’t even have a full day at home in which to crack on with some work. Then again, if I only have a couple of hours I tend to be more productive so perhaps (hopefully) I’ll be ok!
