The broadband has been up and down like a yo-yo today, lots of frustration and context switching working from home trying to rapidly respond to instant messages and email in the small window that seems to appear where normality resumes. It felt like there was a pattern, and I was able to navigate my productivity in four minute chunks before swearing profusely at the ceiling. Waiting for the next cycle to appear, the Cytrix countdown clock becoming my friend for the day.
It’s been a strange week weather wise, extremely cold from a wind chill point of view but full of light and sunshine like a corner has turned. The sunrise, is welcome in the mornings casting strange light across the house. I’m desperately trying to become active again. Cycling and Walking into work for the odd day and as a consequence my hip and back remind me of all the time I’ve spent sat down. I just can’t jump to it like I used to. I’m trying to form a daily habit of 15 mins of yoga which I genuinely think helps.
Despite the cold, I’ve had the BBQ on with a view to quickly cooking Aubergine, Courgette and Peppers rapidly for the week ahead. An attempt at getting a more Mediterranean diet on the go. Soft and velvety aubergine mixed through a bag of salad is the way to go and very comforting.
I’m late again to the share, consequence of the yo yo on Friday and trying to pack so much in. I’d tell you about the Batman, but if like me you don’t want to hear or see a thing until you’ve seen it then I’ll stay stum and just tell you I had an enjoyable day across in Glasgow with both my sons. We went to the cinema and saw a very long, dark, film, which we all enjoyed. Followed by a coffee and a chat in Starbucks.
Today has seen us clear the hall down so the bathroom fitters can get through without catching something. Amazing how books on a bookshelf can catch dust, so they have also had a light touch with the hoover. The boy has gone up to the dry ski slope with some pals meantime. It will be a relief to know he’s done ok as I think he’s got a shock coming about the difference from real snow. Meanwhile we are in the garden, trying to remove the signs of winter, sweeping and weeding.
The #WeekendCoffeeShare is an informal weekly link-up hosted by Natalie the Explorer that serves as weekly heart beat and sort of of a mind-dump. Helps me reflect on my week, with a list of achievements, thoughts and rambles normally whilst drinking a beverage probably listening to music.
