The last couple of weeks – and the coming one – have been… chaotic, to say the least. I’m used to this in general, but it’s felt like it’s been even more frenetic than usual this month, and there’ve been a lot of contributory factors that have all conspired to make it so.
Work-wise, I’ve been ending up on-site at least twice a week, rather than the usual one day a week, and that’s just disturbed things a bit. Usually I can take my work laptop on-site on a Monday, and then leave it in my own office for the rest of the week, rather than constantly lugging it around. This month though it’s been on-site, in-office, on-site, in-office etc. etc.
Around the work stuff, there’s been a lot of other bits going on, with stuff in London on some evenings, as well as other social stuff and going to the cinema. And it all adds up.
For example, this week has involved…
- Monday – on site
- Tuesday – working from home, then going to London to Mere in the evening.
- Wednesday – in office
- Thursday – on site, then seeing Kong: Skull Island in the evening
- Friday – in office
- And then just my usual idiocy in the coming weekend, another trip to London to see friends, and a social-and-food even locally on Sunday
Next week is no different really, including two London trips to the theatre, as well as all the usual work. I’m vaguely hopeful that I won’t be on-site more than once, but I’ll only find that out during the week.
Once next week is done, I’m hoping that things will be a bit quieter again. That’s certainly the plan – if nothing else, I need some downtime – but we’ll see how it goes. In fairness, I can handle the multiple days on-site or I can handle the other stuff – it’s just when it’s both things at once that it gets somewhat harder to deal with.
