Last night I went out with friends from work and met up with other friends as the night went on. I had too much to drink but had a great chat, a fantastic dance and got rid of a lot of stress. I had had a bit of a rough week and this night out was to try and re-balance my week. Today has been spent trying to recover from the hangover that reminded me of how much I actually drank last night. I hate getting that drunk and was a wee bit disappointed in myself that I had taken things that far.
I spent a large part of my day catching up on some TV that I had recorded. I made a huge pot of home-made lentil soup and some major comfort food was needed so dinner came in the shape of a pot roast. The food went a long way in healing the nausea. After a good feed and some rest I felt much better. The television I caught up on was just trashy programmes that had no real value other than the aesthetic. It was a good way to unwind and I should have days like that all the time.
I have taken this day to rest and tomorrow I have a day off from work so I will be dropping the kids off at school and going for a little jaunt into Stirling. I am meeting a friend and hopefully going for a walk. I don’t usually get this much me time but I am really looking forward to it. A whole day to myself – I better not get used to this anomaly. After my day I will be getting kids to do homework, getting them off to bed then sorting out work for my final essay for my degree in Literature. I also have some serious decision making to do with regards to my career prospects.
My week is shaping up to be pretty busy. I will try to fit as much as possible into my day off as I won’t be getting another one anytime soon.
