The Weekend Blog | Sleepy
9th July 2016
Boy have I been tired this week.
It was my first full week back at work following my holiday and I guess I’ve really been missing my daily afternoon siesta.
I’ve also been feeling quite anxious this week. I’ve started a new project at work and it’s my first solo build from scratch. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving it so far and learning a ton everyday, but it’s hard work. I just want to do the best I can possibly do.
On top of this I’ve been getting frustrated with the holiday company I went to Lanzarote with as I am trying to claim back my medical expenses that I had to pay out because of their lack of knowledge of the health system out there (the rep said I couldn’t use my European Health card because we’d left the EU – what an idiot!). It’s such a slow process and now their “legal team” is involved. *rolls eyes*
I had a disaster of a driving lesson on Wednesday because I was so tired and wasn’t thinking straight. It was my first bad lesson since re-starting to learn and I felt pretty crap afterwards.
More than anything, I’m just really missing my parents. I went on holiday for a week, and then they started a cruise while I was away, so we haven’t spoken in like three weeks, which I’ve found incredibly difficult. We text every day but I’ve missed telling her about my trip and getting her advice on what to do about the whole food poisoning saga.
Yesterday I went go-karting with work, and I have to say it cheered me up immensely, even if I did come last in my group in both races. I can’t wait to go again as I really did have so much fun. I’m thinking it would be a good activity for Tyrone’s birthday in October.
Tyrone and I were planning on packing up a picnic and taking a long walk along the beach today but the weather is still horrific, so instead we’re stuck inside. In a way it’s nice to be able to relax and get my energy levels back up to normal, but at the same time I’m dying to get outside and explore the beautiful beaches I live so close to.
Ah well, that’s life.
I hope you have a great weekend!
