Monday musings

Even though I don’t go back to work until Wednesday, today is really my last day of freedom. Tomorrow I am going shopping with my mother. I’m not really sure why but I’m hoping this means she won’t complain that I never do anything with her for a while. I’m being the good daughter!

I’m not thrilled about going back to work. We’re VERY not busy at this time of the year but someone should always be in the office, just in case. My boss is away in Antarctica until February 4, so my co-worker and I are sharing the load until she returns. It means we each have a couple of days off per week throughout January, which is very civilised. Next Monday through Wednesday I am doing a Photoshop course, which I am really looking forward to. And the weekend after that, the boy and I are off to Dunkeld for two nights, so that should be good too.

Dinner with our friends on Saturday night was good fun, a late night as usual. Huffle got a new mouse which she immediately had to play with, so we were all happy!

Oh, and the weather is finally improving… right before I have to go back to work.


Why are Mondays so boring?

You know, we should think of another name for Monday. Then maybe we wouldn’t associate the first day of the week depression about going back to work with it. Maybe… First-day-on-the-run-to-the-weekend-Day. Okay it’s a bit of a mouthful but I think it could catch on.

I went to a very nice place for lunch yesterday, Va Tutto in Ivanhoe. They specialise in seafood and it was just tremendous. Not as expensive as I thought either. Three courses, a glass of wine and a coffee for about $75. And considering I had lobster medallions for one of my courses, I think that’s not too bad! We went to celebrate a friend’s impending baby birth. She is due in six weeks and is struggling to walk around and do much now so we thought we’d better have a nice afternoon out before she becomes completely housebound. And it was lovely.

Last night I supported the mum of one of Huffle’s blogging friends who was doing a 24-hour charity blog. I kept the emails going so she couldn’t fall asleep!

Tonight we are going to a friend’s place for dinner. It should be good!
