ten minutes

Weather – gorgeous, days warm without being stinking hot and nights where you no longer have to lie prostrate and naked across the bed dodging mosquitoes.

Social activities – that post holidays, everyone’s back in town, it’s summer and we want to have fun kind of buzz. Keeping resolutions to reconnect with people again.

Work – should have been laid back and relatively undemanding for the first month of the year took a u-turn. Busy. All the extra work related necessities – planning, tax and new projects, have not been completed as expected.

Exciting – stuff in the wings, but oh so slow, not helped by the aforementioned busyness.

Pressure – background worries higher than usual. More trans-Tasman flights in the wings. Aging parents a constant concern.

Getting used to the changes at home – slowly. It’s great to come home from work to dinner in the oven. Not so fun to be out of synch in the sleep department.

Optimistic – about my abilities, the new domestic arrangements and achieving deadlines.

Not so optimistic – the assertion that 2007 will be funeral-free.

Things to do before the summer ends – more picnics, outdoor movies, walks, bike rides, socialising, sleeping.

Note to self – need to get back into blogging.
