Some weeks the time flies by and suddenly it is Friday. This is a short working week and it seems an eternity since Monday morning. The causes have been both work and the problems of ordinary life that sometimes kick you to remind you not to be complacent. Work wise, the actions of a few people in an NHS Trust and the decisions they made without discussion on Friday last week impacted on my working week big time. This has the effect of meaning that the diary you thought you had at 8.45am on Monday has suddenly changed by 9am. It also means that you cannot be productive in the way you thought you would be. One good effect was that while waiting to go into a meeting with some Directors on Tuesday I did a massive clear up job on my email inbox and that is a really good outcome for the week.
On Tuesday afternoon at around 4.30pm all was calm; I decided to make the most of the good weather and get out of the office, go home and sit in my garden for a while. A chain of events meant that by the time I got home at 11pm, my car was in the garage awaiting repair to work out why it wouldn’t start plus a smashed bumper, and puncture caused by my darling husband forgetting to steer while being towed!
A day off yesterday wasn’t spent taking Matt back to Uni as planned, but on the phone to insurance companies etc. The silver lining was that I managed to cut the grass and finished a book I had been meaning the time to read.
Today being carless means a walk to the station and a train. The good thing is we get to finish at 3pm; time off for hard work and good behaviour. No work for me till Tuesday; lets hope no one decides to do anything today that might affect the potential tranquility next week!
