Something about getting on with stuff….


So anyways, I’m back at work. It’s a five day a week, full time in the office consultancy role for the next few months…and already it’s making my brain turn somersaults- so that’s a good thing.

Given that I haven’t worked in a corporate environment for over two years, or done the five days in the office thing for longer than that (I was a work from home two days a week girl) I’m feeling more than just a tad tired and overwhelmed. I’m sure I’ll get used to it.

As much as I love working on my own stuff, I didn’t realise how much I missed working with other people. What I haven’t missed is putting my feet, so used to comfy footwear, into proper shoes.  Nor have I missed the three hour return commute. Aaaah Sydney traffic. On the up side, I get to catch up on my podcasts.

The one thing that’s changed the most is weekends. Rather than being a time to wind down, Saturdays are now filled with the appointments that used to be slotted in during the week, the cleaning that would be done during the week. Rather than shopping daily for groceries for the day, I’m back in planning and preparation mode. Then there’s my work. I’ve had to cut down- I’m not taking any client appointments, and I’m not actively pitching to editors at present- but what’s left still needs to be done. I don’t want to let my writing slip, so this weekend my word count is the equivalent to a normal five day week.

My point is, have a list of things that need to be done this weekend- and at the top of that list is buying shoes.

This weekend is perfect for list ticking off- if you’re in a list ticking off mood, that is.

That’s the thing about Virgo Moons- they’re great for getting on with the detail of life, the things that have to be done. Naturally, it’s up to you whether you want to be getting on with it, but if you’re that way inclined, and have a list, this weekend is good to be getting on with it.
