Get Right

If we were having a coffee tonight it would be at the end of my week staycation.

One thing that has struck me this is, as always, how quickly time off work disappears.  A friend messaged me on Thursday and said that we could have met up.  We could have done, but I had plans pretty much every day.  It’s been a fun week.

The only thing that was missing is that my new camera lens only arrived on Friday which meant I haven’t had time to go out and use it yet.  I’d planned an early start to take some sunrise photos before the weather turned, but no such luck.

The big thing I wanted to do this week was catch up on sleep.  I pretty much did that, but….! I was going through some drawers on Friday and found some air freshener which is supposed to help you sleep.

“Great,” I thought.  “I’ll give that a bash tonight.”

It was only after spending hours tossing and turning, finally getting to sleep for a few hours and waking up at 4.30 in the morning with a dry throat and feeling sick that I remembered it didn’t help me sleep and left me with a dry throat and feeling sick.  That’ll be why I put it in the back of a drawer!

So a bit of a pain that I lost most of the benefit of my week off in one night but, thankfully, we got the hour backlash night.

I’d love to say that I’ve had done all this really interesting stuff.  None of it has been particularly interesting – hair cuts, breakfasts, lunches, dinners, shopping, walks.  I’ve done lots of walking!  I also had a play on PlayStation VR, which was great and weird, being able to look around a virtual environment while shooting giant spiders!  I was jumping backwards fairly regularly!

That’s a rather rubbish weekly summary for which I apologise!

But a bit like getting that hour back, this week feels like my clock has been reset a little.  It feels like I’ve caught up with myself again, and that’s not just talking about all the laundry I’ve done.  You know when even small things feel like they’re too much of hassle?  I think I’m finally now on top of things.  We’ll see how long it lasts!

My week in Pokémon Go! I did a lot of evolving because I wanted some more stuff to go in gyms.

I spent a good few hours on a walk a maybe a month ago collecting Cubones and didn’t quite have enough to evolve.  After the Halloween event this week I think everyone will have a Marowak!

Next week… I’m back at work.  One of the things I want to go back without is feeling angry.  I’m hoping that now I’m not so tired I might be able to not be so frustrated with people and things and be a bit more constructive. I’ll let you know how I get on.

Hands will take their place
Far from intentions made
Disguised as patience, time gets wasted
Now is for the now, so get loud

I’m, I’m destination addicted
I just gotta be some place else
Never good time, never feel the space to get it right
Get right

Hands will find their way
To eyes inches from my face
My heart gets beating, I drink freely
How to hold it down, hold it down?

I’m, I’m destination addicted
I just gotta be some place else
Never good time, never feel the space to get it right
Get right

Okay, okay, enough
Let me explain
Okay, okay, enough
Get on with it
Maybe if I stand up straight
One small thing I can change
Maybe if I, maybe If I, maybe I’m…

I’m, I’m destination addicted
I just gotta be some place else
Never good time, never feel the space to get it right
Get right
