Last weekend was spent creating a photobook of our Australia holiday, looking back through pictures of our trip. It was lovely to think back on our adventures and did make me wish for another holiday. Luckily we have a weekend break coming up soon so not too long to wait!
In the meantime this week has definitely been a break from the usual days in the office. There was a day working from home which always represents a bit of light relief from the commute. Then there was a day at a meeting with all of my old colleagues. My year on this placement comes to an end in August and I will be returning back to my previous role. It was lovely to be back amongst old friends and catching up both personally and professionally. It has made me feel really positive about returning, as well as grateful for the brilliant opportunities I have had this year.
On Wednesday I spent my lunch break catching up with a neighbour. We both work quite near each other and have been trying to make arrangements to meet up over lunch for what seems like ages. It was a lovely hour having a chat and much better than a sandwich at my desk!
A break from the norm last night as my mum came to meet me from work and we went for a delicious dinner just the two of us. It isn't common that we catch up these days without the men in our lives around and so it made a really nice change to relax over a meal and share the evening together.
And today the start of the wonderful long weekend. There is baking, cleaning, running, day trips, cooking and relaxing all planned. Starting today with food shopping and an afternoon with mum and millie doing crosswords and cuddling in front of the fire while The Husband, Mal and Grandad were all at the rugby (all had gone separately and supporting opposite sides!). A brilliant break ahead over this Easter weekend. Hope you all have a lovely few days.
