It is Tuesday, and it is already a long week… Last week got very exciting with the birth of a new Cooper baby (congratulations A!) who I can’t wait to meet, but was pretty much a work-fest. Sadly I had forgotten quite how busy it can get… amazing how the brain tends to block it out!
The weekend was, I’ll be honest, pretty spectacular. There was Saturday, with a sandwich lunch on the Common with a good friend from work (with an Amish choir serenading us, complete with pamphlets asking if we had found Jesus… I assume they were Amish, based on what they were wearing, but I may be totally wrong) followed by a fantastic touring production of The Phantom of the Opera (where I discovered that I just can’t cope with the American accent when the word ‘past’ is sung… it’s not a nasal sound, it’s a long ah! Urgh) and then chilling out at home with a movie. Sunday was another day out with a work friend, with a lovely brunch at Back Deck followed by a trip to see the new Planet of the Apes film – not in the uber-posh cinema, but it was still rather nicer than CineWorld Bedford used to be (I am not sure how good it is now…). So all in all rather lovely!
But this week has been crazy. I have a couple of jobs trying to get to completion before the end of the month (it’s not going to happen, we don’t have the availability), and another which I need to get through the review on (that is viable, and questions are with the client so it’s not all on me). Also my BIG job is kicking off for a quarter so that’s going on, and to top I have had my very first possible new client make contact. Which is a HUGE compliment (breathe, breathe, breathe) and very exciting (couldn’t this happen when things were quiet??) and lovely, and I am THRILLED (the bosses seem to be pretty happy too which is nice!). I do, however, need to get headshots done for bid documents, which is going to be hysterically bad… Really quite concerned about this – my appointment at Target is booked, but it’s not going to go well (it’s due to be in the 90s this week, so the chances of my make-up not melting down my face are slim… Hopefully the photographer will tell me!)…
Anyway, back to work, it’s only 7pm. Another hour to go at least, then I can get off home. Hooray! Little things.
