Leave

I am so glad that I still haven’t gone to work. I don’t feel as though I have had a break at all and my cold is also getting worse by the day, so I feel a bit rubbish. As G said, I would just like to have found time to get bored this holiday; G went back to work today incidentally, so we’re now planning some time of work at the end of February to get bored then instead...

This afternoon I am going to see someone I used to work with. I got a letter from her just before Christmas telling me how unwell she is because she has such trouble walking and really painful hips. She thinks that she needs a hip replacement but the doctors say she is too young. She sounded so miserable so I am going over to see her to find out how she is doing and I’ll maybe try and see and go over and see her a few more times. Then this evening I’m going to go over to G’s for a bit, but will then be coming home because I don’t want to have to get up really early tomorrow when G heads off for work.

Then tomorrow is my last day of leave *weeps* and I intend to continue my search for a new fireplace for my living room. I do feel as though I have achieved quite a lot with my time off, it has just gone so quickly and been so busy. Perhaps 2008 needs to be the year of taking a lot more leave.

Taking more leave sounds like a good option. Hope you cold gets better soon .... TFx

TF - Maybe this year I will finally do it...

The cold gets better and then deteriorates again. At least I haven't got the sickness bug thing though. Sometimes it pays to be anti-social.
