Monday Miscellany: Slightly more productive

Happy Monday!

I took an unintentional week off posting last week, it was my first full week back at work and I was not firing on all cylinders and started the week still tackling the backlog of emails. Usually, I can delete about half the emails in my inbox when I get back to work but this week there were more requests and less meeting notifications. However, I caught up and have a plan for this week and you never know, I might actually be ahead of the game by the end of this week, it’s always possible!

It’s been one of those weeks where I’ve tackled some things at home that were bothering me, like removing the dust from bedroom light shade and rehabbing my house plants, you know the stuff you notice but never get around to doing.

The NHS opened up vaccination slots for over 45’s on Tuesday and I’m booked in for mine and had my first on Wednesday. I also had a bit of a reaction to it, on Thursday afternoon, I was basically cold, shivery and v. tired and retired to bed with some hot water bottles. It was done by Friday morning, but it hit at the exact point that I’m PMT’ing and on the weekend I had the worst migraine I’ve had in a while. The joy of perimenopause. Anyway, we are almost on the way to having the family vaccinated, my mum has had both of hers, I’ve had the first of mine and my brother is due sometime next week, all we need is for my sister in law to be done but she needs to wait for her age group to open up!

Other good news, Chelsea and PSG are through to the semi finals of the Champions League. We’ve done a family draw ever year for the last 10 years and I have never won, not once. I think my sister in law has won the most. Last year I had 3 teams in the quarters and none of them got to the semis, so this year I have two teams in the semis and I’m expecting that neither of them will reach the final but it’s progress! And Chelsea have reached the final of the FA Cup, I have no money on that one just pride!

My plan for this week is more of the same except I really need to clean the oven and make sure I get out for a walk before I start work! I wish life was more exciting right now but it isn’t and it wasn’t that exciting before the pandemic!

Have a good week people!
