I’ve been ill for the last week, which is far from ideal at this time of year. I decided the only way to get through such a week was to just do the absolute minimum in order to get by. I rescheduled everything I possibly could, and tried not to put any pressure on myself to get things done. Work-wise, I’ve got most things done. The house is a bit of a tip, and I’m sure there’s at least one person for whom I’ve not yet bought a Christmas present… but we’ll see.
I think the only thing I actually managed to do this week was get to Wave 105 to record this week’s 5 Things – something that involved a migraine, a slow walk back to the train station and then a coughing fit both on the platform and for the duration of the train ride home. I’m glad I did it though; I think this week’s was one of our better ones. Possibly because I was half-blind and off my head on Benylin!
So how did I do with this week’s goals?
Take some time for myself – I ended up forced to do this, as I was feeling too ill to do much else. Most of Tuesday was spent laying on the sofa half-watching movies as I felt sorry for myself – instead of working in the office of a local company, as I was supposed to!
Get ahead with my work – well… er… At this exact moment in time, I have one piece of copy to write, and two blog posts to schedule for next week. I think I did okay, under the circumstances!
Finish the Christmas shopping – I failed at this one… but only slightly. At the time of writing, I have two gifts left to buy. I also bit the bullet and did our food shopping online, which took a massive weight off!
