Yep, and I got away early...heheh! Because I cleaned up the work in record time, I actually only did the equivalent of two days' work in the city this week. If things had gone as I thought, today would have been my first day at home...but, I finished early on Tuesday, early on Wednesday and that was it!
It was so lovely going to bed on Wednesday night, knowing I didn't need to set the alarm to get up and get ready for the hour plus trip into the city. I slept in...yep! Didn't get up until quarter to six. If you think that's early, when I work in the city I get up at quarter to five, leave home at six and get to work by approximately 7.15 (depending how timely the train is getting into Central).
I'm a morning person and do my best work before lunchtime, that's why I like to start early. It's a throw back to when we lived on the farm 35 years ago. I was used to getting up to get the cows in for milking and I've never got out of the habit of rising early. It's wonderful in summer because in midsummer, it's daylight at 4 am, so I don't miss out on any of the day. It's also lovely and peaceful at that time of the day (if you discount the cockatoos and kookaburras, noisy critters that they are) and I feel as if I'm the only person in the world.
We had a drama on Monday evening involving Oscar, but I'll let him tell you in his post on Tuesday. He can do it so much better, with all the dramatics so necessary to him.
Thank you for not forgetting about me. I actually felt quite cut off from you all. Now, isn't that strange...I was actually working with tangible people and felt cut off from people I've never even met, yet who I feel really close to. I think a psychiatrist could have a wonderful time with that! I'm also going visiting on Sunday. I haven't seen Cooper for a whole month...he'll be forgetting what I look like, and I haven't seen my daughters and my other grandchildren for the same amount of time. I feel anything could have happened and I would have been totally oblivious to it.
I cannot wait for the time when I stop my two days in the city. It was going to be next year, but I think once I've paid off my car in a few months' time, I may call it quits then. Conversely, I may have changed my mind again by then, too! Oh, I think I'll wait and see what happens and how I feel about it then.
Hope this finds you all bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
Hugs to you all...
