Lately I’ve found myself itching to unleash a little creativity and write more, but with work really taking it out of me, I just haven’t had the brainspace to come home, sit down and craft a decent narrative. I do really enjoy blogging though, and in the interest of getting back in the swing of things and putting pen to paper fingers to keyboard to get the creative juices flowing, I thought I might take a leaf out of The Mustard Jumper’s book blog and commit to giving a ‘weekly wrap’/’thoughts of the week’ series a crack. Let’s see how quickly this falls by the wayside…
- Work has really taken it out of me this week. We’re at a critical point with the project that I’m working on, and it has been mentally, physically, and emotionally exhausting. My weekend was not long enough and I am not ready to go back to work tomorrow..
- On the flipside, after going through a recruitment process, I was assigned to the role that I applied for in the new structure, which is a big relief.
- Mr Posy found out this week that he is off to Singapore for a few days in April for work, and I am well jealous. All those years living in PosyTown, just a stone’s throw away from Singapore, and we never went – such a waste!
- I made it back to the gym this weekend after nearly a month off. I came down with a chest infection in January, and it really knocked me about, so I took some time off. I had to really push myself to finish my workouts this weekend and I’ve lost a fair bit of strength, but I’m confident I can build it back up again reasonably quickly. As much as I wanted to roll over and ignore the 6am weekend alarm, I am glad I went. … The only workout you’ll ever regret is the one you didn’t do, or something.
- Speaking of being sick in January, I had to cancel my birthday dinner because I felt too awful to be out and about at the time. We finally went to Sake last night for my belated dinner, and it was AMAZING. The food was incredible and the service was fantastic – we will definitely be going back.
- I had breakfast this morning with a friend who is over from Perth, and it was SO GREAT to see her. It’s been way too long between catch-ups (over two years, and before that maybe another couple of years), and I felt really sad when it came time to say goodbye. Goodbyes are the worst.
- PosyDog has had a cyst on her hip for as long as I can remember (maybe 6 or 7 years?) – it’s never caused her any issues, we keep a close eye on it, and she’s seen a number of Vets over the years who have all said cysts like hers are fairly common, that it doesn’t need to be surgically removed, and to not worry too much about it. Well, it burst sometime in the wee hours of Friday night/Saturday morning. So. Much. Gross. We took her to the Vet first thing Saturday morning and now we are knee-deep in antibiotics, anti-inflammatories, disinfectant and hot and cold compresses. PosyDog’s Vet said that it will clear up after a couple of weeks on antibiotics, and that we can then assess whether this is something that might become a recurring problem now that it has burst, in which case he would then recommend surgery. Poor PosyDog is also due to have her teeth cleaned under general anaesthetic, so she’s having a bit of a rough trot at the moment. She’s such a little trooper though – if it weren’t for the giant lesion on her hip/back, you’d never know she wasn’t 100%!
