I had to really dig deep today to find some motivation to get going with work. It wasn’t easy. A former colleague called me late morning and that really did make my day. She works in a different part of the organisation now, but it was really nice to hear from her and we had a good chat – with not much work chat. Sometimes it is these little things that have such a positive impact on you.
While I was struggling in the morning, I had to get myself sorted out by the afternoon as I had an important meeting and some urgent work to do. While I had hoped to log off early, as ever I ended up working later than I wanted to.
We had pizza delivered today, which made for a nice easy tea. TT threw a salad together, threw the pizzas in the oven and voila!
After clapping at 8pm, I headed out for a walk. I decided to explore a path I had never been along before, but had seen others on it. For some reason I had a fear that here might be a big gate at the end of it. I was right. I was met by a big gate, chained and locked, with not a spare inch to slip around. I didn’t fancy climbing over it, so had to retrace my steps. I need to explore again, to find out an alternative.
I came home and started watching Normal People. This is not the gate that I could not get through or over! The extra is one of the pizzas - one of BB's highlight's of the week.
