One of the strange things I sometimes find myself doing, and I will admit I think it’s slightly odd, is that I count the number of people I speak to in a day. Whether it be face-to-face or over the phone. I don’t know whether I want it to be high or low, I think it has something to do with the way I feel like pieces of me are being chipped off with a potato peeler if I deal with too many people too frequently and for too long.
Yesterday, it was agreed that today I should have a sleep in, rather than get up at 04horriblehorrible and have a slow day due to a number of factors. These include the large pink welt on my left upper arm – the anticipated result of yesterday’s flu shot; a renegade washing machine and also because there are some issues with our project and my “off” period is being delayed.
So today – I woke up two hours after the usual horrible squeeching alarm would go off. I had a few phone calls, two of which are heavily involved in what comes next. One from Mother_figure – I called her last night to discuss the ramifications of some of the issues and our project.
And then I went for a short drive to the store and bought some cheese and juice to have in my little fridge.
I’ve spoken with 6 people on the phone, two people in the store, that’s it.
Tomorrow – I will go back to work. Apparently we’ve gone five whole days without an injury now… I wish I knew what to do to stop them hurting themselves!
Other activities for the day – updating my CV to send to the two organisations who have asked to see it. Working on a thread bear – but it hurts my hands so I’m using an alpaca-acrylic blend now. I’d send you a photo but he’s just not much more than a muzzle!
On the horsy front – I have been asked to put a separate page of my ponies – I will do so very shortly! Nero is doing very well at David’s, already having learnt how to take a bit and bridle calmly and is now working on the lunge.
For now, however, I am tucked up in bed watching The Great Raid (hmmmmmmmm, Joseph Fiennes!) and working on a bear… I needed a break from the Stripghan.
Hugs to you all!
