2024 Week 20 One Daily Positive, Project 365 and A Selfie a Day


134  Monday Woke with a migraine. Into town after work. I was falling asleep by 2pm. Such a hectic day, spent most of my time reporting safeguarding issues and phoning parents. I'm working way above my pay grade but great support from my line manager (I don't say that often) and the Safeguarding lead was fab as always. Had an early tea, bath and went to bed to do some paperwork as I'm still feeling dizzy and sick and have back pain.

135  Tuesday Autism and Puberty training after work this evening. I popped out to get some milk and bumped into a friend, got home almost two hours later.

136  Wednesday Straight from work for coffee with colleagues. Home to video calls with the grandchildren.

137  Thursday Helped with homework club after school then off with a colleague who picked up keys for her new home today. The plan had been to start with the cleaning, but the previous owners hadn't finished moving out. A few words were exchanged and she finally got in at 7pm. 

We're making the most of sitting outside in the evenings.

138  Friday Straight from work to Monmouth to stay with friend for the evening. Chatted crap for several hours. I spent the night in the van on the drive as she's having building work done. I've known her for 26 years, she's always having building work done, this is the 5th house.

139  Saturday Left early as friend was out for the day, popped into Monmouth for a coffee, then dropped some stuff at mums and called in for a cuppa with granddaughter and home by 3pm. We went out for coffee and did a food shop. I Babysat a colleagues kids for the evening.

140  Sunday Washing on and hung out. Ironing done and sorted out some birthday gifts and cleaned the kitchen. Peter drove to Heathrow, then I drove home getting in around 7pm. He's off to Cairo for a week, he's come out of retirement. I brought the washing in, finished off the ironing, did some tidying up and I got myself ready for work in the morning, bath and bed.

  1. It sounds like work was stressful but it's good that you are getting plenty of support.
    I have been sitting outside more on an evening too, it is lovely when it's still warm. x

  2. Sounds like things are busy at work. Bet it's strange having Peter jet off again after being at home for so long. I need to make time to catch up with my friends, feels like I've not seen them for a while especially my bestfriend - who's either lost her phone or trying to tell me something by not picking up messages!

    1. I really enjoy spending time with my friends, even if I do see them every day in work

  3. So nice to be able to sit outside in the evenings. Sounds like you had a nice time catching up with your friend. Hope Peter had a good trip to Cairo. #project365

    1. Peter really enjoyed his work trip, here's to many more
