Yay for the weekend, this week has felt like a long one that has dragged by! I decided to write this now earlier in the evening before I move from my desk to the sofa to enjoy my evening. I have just finished working, a bit late for a Friday I know but I wanted to finish a couple of things before the weekend. I’ve just grabbed myself a glass of wine and some peanuts to have while I type.
I’m having one of those days where I feel like I’ve not really woken up all day and that I could simply close my eyes and I would be asleep, perhaps it’s my body telling me that I’m tired and I need to rest more!!
Anyway, I’ve now got my desktop PC back from my IT support company with a new stick of RAM in it (whatever that means)!! And it’s all working perfectly – phew!!
I still have a bit of marking to do for the uni but not back on campus until 6th June, so I am going to use my time next week to work on other projects that have been sitting quietly in the background. I had thought about going away for a night or two for a short break but didn’t really commit to this and therefore have got meetings booked in for the working days next week. Here in the UK, we have got a short week next week as it’s the Queen’s jubilee and we have an extra Bank Holiday so Thursday and Friday will be quieter days for me! I might take myself off somewhere for a nice walk and lunch on one of the days for some thinking time.
This weekend I have a friend coming over to help me with the garden tomorrow and then I’m swimming on Sunday and helping a friend who has recently signed up for a course and would like some academic support – get me!! If I told my younger self that I would be working as an academic in a university in my forties I wouldn’t have believed her, I still can’t believe it myself some days now when imposter syndrome is rearing it’s head!
Feel in a reflective mood at the moment so am going to write down some of the stuff that’s going on in my head to try to get it out of my head and not drive me crazy.
Yesterday was my 300th post, can’t believe I have stuck with it for nearly a year! I am not sure what I will do when the 365 days are over, it will be interesting to look back to see if I have actually made some progress with areas of my life that I wanted to when I set out for this transformation, probably more of a subtle shift rather than transformation but hey progress is progress!
