On Wednesday evening, I went to collect my shopping from the supermarket (love the Click and Collect option!). The lovely man who I see there every week gave me a big smile and asked me how I was. I just looked at him tiredly.
Him: “Oh dear, that bad is it?”
Me: “It’s been a long week. And it’s only Wednesday. And I wasn’t even at work on Monday!”
The whole week has felt like that. For a four day week it seems to have lasted about a fortnight! I really thought Friday evening was never going to arrive, but here it is.
*Sighs with relief*
I’m sitting here on the sofa, surrounded by Chinese takeaway debris all over the floor (I will tidy up before bed!). I’ve put Three to bed and am waiting for One to come down from her bath so we can get started on our evening of BBC comedy. Two is in Manchester with his dad.
Tomorrow is going to be fabulous. Me and the girls are heading over to a friend’s house to meet up with a whole group of friends. They mostly live inside my computer and I haven’t seen any of them in real life for absolutely AGES, due to circumstances beyond my control. I’ve missed seeing them so much! There will be knitting, and laughter, and CAKE and chat and support and care and hugs and did I mention CAKE? 😉
I’ve been holding out for a day such as this for many many months now. And after a week like this one (work’s been fine, home and family have been taking up a lot of headspace!), it’s exactly what is needed.
