Has a wonderful weekend with lots of hiking.  We also watched Finding Mr. Banks, which I found completely enchanting.

Today is bossless and meetingless and will be devoted to accomplishing as much as possible.  I have two and a half days to get things wrapped up so I can leave for a week at my mom’s feeling confident that things are in order.

SL’s FTF, Mon 30th June

Had a reasonable weekend with Mum, some fun and games driving on Saturday (Mum was more jumpy than last time, which was strange and quite aggravating/distracting since I wasn’t doing anything dangerous, honest!) but otherwise we got on quite well.

A four day week for me this week since G and I are off to Paris on Friday – hurrah!

  • walk
  • make delicious packed lunch
  • breakfast of champions
  • work – hoping the auditors will finish soon
  • catch up with chief who’s back today – haven’t seen him for 2.5 weeks!
  • leave at 6.00
  • clear up carnage from last night
  • other home admin
  • ironing
  • maybe finish Witch Light?

We have a big grant proposal that must submitted at the end of July, and I started getting it as ready as possible this week, knowing that I will be out of the office much of July.  Am I ever glad I’ve been doing that!  It’s taking so much longer than anticipated, which is annoying, but it’s so much better to have it take a long time now, without the stress of a looming deadline.  I’m really hoping to wrap it up today, and then it’s on to the weekend!

Lots of stuff to do this weekend in preparation for my trip back home.  I need to figure out how to load a bunch of podcasts onto my iPod and then figure out how to play my iPod in my car.  I need to figure out how to print photos and then print some for the birthday scrapbook, and I need to complete at least one scrapbook page.  I also need to do the usual house cleaning, hiking, reading, and strength training, and it would be nice to make a road trip cd mix.  That’s a lot to fit into one weekend!  I’ll also be keeping an eye out for any hippie-relay racer rumbles!

SL’s FTF, Friday 27th June

Fended off the awful auditors successfully yesterday, and then C and I went to the Booking Office Bar for cocktails which was very nice and the cocktails were spectacular! H joined us in due course and had something with some sort of violent – oops I mean violet! – liqueur in leading to jokes about violet creams. I really liked the bar, they’ve kept a lot of original features and despite having an enormously high ceiling it still feels cosy.

When I got home, I managed to set a date for my annual trip to Malmo (which will be in August) and then another friend popped up on FB who I haven’t seen for ages, wanting to go for drinks some time in late July, so that was very nice.

Today I’m doing a half day at work and then bunking off at lunchtime to get the train to go home, since Mum is hosting her book group this evening and I thought it would be nice if I could be there.

  • walk
  • breakfast
  • packing
  • work
  • train home
  • help with shopping
  • quality time with stripy cat
  • book group

Moosie Friday 27 June

So glad it’s Friday! I’m glad to be interested in doing things again but the weekdays are so exhausting! Can’t wait for this weekend and some quiet time.

I’m having a Problem Friend situation (usual suspect!) and I really don’t want to get drawn into doing stuff with her, but the reasons why are either (admittedly!) slightly petty or involve a mutual friend whose confidence I can’t break. I’m tired of being fake and pretending we all get on SO great but don’t see how I can broach the true state of things with her. I guess there’s no good way to break ties with someone without hurting their feelings.

Ftf:
* routines, prep etc.
* train
* swim
* breakfast

Work:
* probably more budget stuff
* better sort the PSA
* other stuff? Can’t really be arsed!
* going for lunch with what I believe is an extended group of ladies loosely based on the original Kool Klub! Couple of people in particular I’m interested in getting to know a bit better.
* diary stuff

Tonight:
* having dinner out with S and N and poss one or two others! Thai Fridays!
After that the weekend is all mine!

SL’s FTF, Thurs 26th June

Managed to be quite zen yesterday which was good, despite a little bit of turbulence at one point. Zen training is working! The day got off to a good start with a meeting with the kickass Aussie who told me a story about a time she had sorted out a dodgy supplier who was trying it on. She’s going to give me and Z some basic procurement training some time, think that will be great fun!

This evening I’m going for cocktails with C and ex-henchgirl H, will be good to see her. I still miss her quite a lot, saintly B although lovely isn’t quite the same!

  • breakfast
  • prep delicious packed lunch
  • finish draft proposal for kickass Aussie
  • continue accounts disclosures
  • audit continues
  • deal with anything else that comes up
  • leave soon after 5.00 with C
  • cocktails!
  • Good Wife
  • catch up on Orphan Black
