Husband went off to America, got snowed in, came home for a bit, went off to Bangalore for a bit, came home for a few days, turned around, went off to Spain, came home, straight into my company’s financial quarter end. (And when I say my company, I should clarify that I meant the company I work for, and not one I own – I haven’t got an entrepreneurial bone in my body… yet).
Just to make sure I was enjoying myself, add into that a flat tire less than 5 miles from work, which set me back a bit (ran over a keep left curb which was not properly signed in the dark… the council has now fixed it, and apparently I may be able to reclaim my GBP200… which is great).
And then there was the fun eye thing which is still clearing up (after two trips to the chemist / pharmacist, one trip to the GP, and one trip to the eye hospital, no one’s much the wiser, but I no longer feel like I’ve been punched in the face, nor do I look it, so all good).
To bring it in to the present day:
I’m now suffering from a lovely cold, which I can only hope was passed on to me by my daughter, because I really don’t want her to get this otherwise. But a cold is okay. I can cope with that.
And the neighbour’s au pair is looking for another family – so there goes the morning childcare help when husband isn’t around. Not sure how he’s taking it.
Let’s ice the cake with an e-mail from my boss saying she’s now not happy to let me work from home on a more ad hoc basis as required for childcare purposes. I’m pretty sure that nearly 2 months after this has been requested, it’s a bit late now (what do HR people do, really? I’ve asked Husband, who teaches them, but I’m none the wiser…) but don’t want to get into any arguments. I do, however, think regularly of no longer working at said company, because it would improve my quality of life, but for the paycheck. Ah, the paycheck…
But my Monkey-Moo/baby girl is fantastic.
So now that the majority of crises are over, I’ve got a few more normal posts to put up. Just not quite today. But really soon – because there’s still some stuff in the garden that we’re working through (in December – can you believe it), and I’m still working on being inspired by everyone else’s blogs!
TGIF never came too soon.
