Having a lovely weekend. I’m refusing to feel guilty about being a bit lazy although (with apologies that 90% of my chat these days revolves around surgery but it’s ::ahem:: a little on my mind! o_O) I do feel a bit bad for not doing all the stuff that I won’t be able to do for a while, soon. Argh. But on the other hand, I’ve been describing my last two mornings as the “resetting” routine, or “zen-morning”: cup of tea taken back to bed while I read, then meditate and do my stretches before getting another cuppa and journalling. It’s been blissful!
Yesterday I also caught up with old school friend, and it was ace. It’s that kind of friendship that, even though we haven’t seen each other in forever, we just fall back into each other’s company very easily. Although I had somehow missed or forgotten that she’d been vegetarian for over a decade – oops! I am so unobservant sometimes! Anyway, we chatted through 8 hours of coffee, art, tapas and cocktails, and it was superb, even the bemoaning of our totally opposite ends of the dating spectrum failings! 😉 I’d love to say we’ll do it more often – as ever, the intention is there, so who knows?
Plan for today is minimal, beyond the usual of laundry, catching up on some of my meant-to-do bits and pieces, and a bit of a catch up TV binge. As I said, feel I ‘should’ be going for long walks etc rather than stuff I can/will be doing while recovering from the upcoming horror (is there an element of “What’s the point?” creeping in? Hmm!). Can you tell that I’m still freaking out about it? I’ve moved on to the point where I recognise that it IS happening, it’s not something I can avoid, but I don’t think I’m ever going to be happy about it. Duh.
Tomorrow afternoon I’m going back to talk to the surgeon again, and I think I’m prepared with my questions. Gulp. MUST phone the insurer in the morning, see what’s available via them. Tuesday I have a session at Maggies – not sure if I might book the afternoon off just ‘cos. I have booked Friday, and my dad is joining me at the cinema. Wednesday night I’m off to Shakespeare, so had pondered Thursday off for the lie in, but we’ll see – I definitely do NOT feel guilty about taking holidays right now, am actually kind of glad it occurred to me to have a little fun!
