Recharging the batteries.

Posted by Waspie_Dwarf , in General waffle 09 June 2008 · 144 views

It's funny how, during my long period of unemployment, I craved being around people. I missed the banter that you have between work mates. In fact for a large part of the time I missed conversation full stop. I live on my own (well there is also my cat, Nyana, but she's not much of a conversationalist) and days would pass when I did not exchange a single word with another human being.

Now I have two days off work and I am enjoying being on my own. We are a contrary bunch us humans, we always seem to want the opposite of what we have.

These two days away from work are an attempt to recharge my batteries. I am not sleeping well and I am tired. A couple of days relaxing and not doing much at all will help I think. It will also give me a bit of a chance to catch up on a few things that need doing at home (I've just finished dead-heading my rose bushes for example).

Then it will be back to the grind stone for a couple of days before I go to Tom's funeral on Friday... that is one day off I am not looking forward to.

Yeah the grass is supposed to be greener on the other side but it never really is, just looks that way.

It never seems to matter how long you've been out of work, those first days off are always magic. yes.gif

The view from my bedroom isn't usually a spectacular one, but every now and then Mother Nature dips into her pots of paint are produces a sky like this.
