I really struggled today and I had great difficulty getting going. TT seemed to be in a similar place. I definitely lost my motivation for work and really struggled to get through my in box. I had a call at 10am which I thought would shake me out of my malaise. It took me three phone to get on the call, meanwhile people were messaging and texting me to find out where I was. My work mobile would not let me connect to the call, my own mobile let me connect then threw me out. Third time lucky I got through on the landline, and I imagine there will be a hefty charge associated with the call. This was followed by a call with the team, which probably did help me to shake myself up a bit The afternoon didn’t seem quite so bad, but I still haven’t completed a piece of work I started a week ago, which is not like me at all.
I was glad to shut my laptop down. I headed out for a walk. It was a damp and the fog really came down and it started to get dark – not ideal conditions for my one bit of exercise a day. TT had re-purposed some leftovers for tea and very nice it was too.
Later, I found it really difficult to settle to anything. I think I have lost my focus and my ability to concentrate. I have barely watched TV all week and have only read a few pages of my book. I eventually settled on the sofa to watch an episode of Liar on catch up and woke up when it was finished – I had missed it. I headed to bed.
