It's been a long day / week at work and one that I don't relish repeating any time soon. I can hack the hours. I can field sales calls and pretend that I'm not me or that I am not at my desk. I can even put up with listening to the strained tunes of the Zumba classes. But the emotional side of dealing face to face with colleges and customers has really taken its toll. I could do with a little R'n'R. Which is lucky because this weekend, tomorrow in fact, we are heading down south to see family.
Our first stop will be Windsor to see Z's parents. Then we're going deeper south to Poole for a 3rd birthday party on Saturday, followed by a christening on Sunday. Monday we'll be driving all the way back to Leeds so that I can be back at work on Tuesday. A nice relaxing weekend indeed.
Tonight we have found time to cook and eat a nice meal of pork loin steaks, from Swillington Farm, baked on a bed of peppers and onions and served with potato wedges. We have also packed our bags and piled them all in the hall so that we can set off first thing in the morning. I know Tonight's Menu has been a bit sub-standard* of late, but I will endeavour to remedy this just as soon as I can.
*who knew I had standards?
