Life goes on  
I was surprised to find it's been an entire week since I've posted here. Nothing much has happened in that time; with my new job there's none of the euphoric highs, but also none of the depressing lows of my old one. So the days just chug by, every day much the same as the last, and suddenly it's Friday again with another weekend looming.

There is some good news to report, though. My bestie at my old job has just resigned, and he's coming over to work with me from the beginning of April onwards. Excited much? Why yes, yes I am. :-) He's always good value to have around.

The days lately have been sultry, with rain threatening every day but very little falling. I've only walked to the bus stop on one day this week, having decided that if the temperature is any higher than 22C at 5.30am I'm not walking. This morning it was already 25C at that time so walking was out of the question. I miss it, though, my morning and afternoon walk. Hope things cool down a bit soon.

What else? Nothing, really. Planning a girl's night out with my sister tomorrow night but we haven't yet decided where we're going. No doubt something will appeal to us, even if it's only dinner out.

Otheriwise, yeah, like the title says. Life goes on....

Speaking as half of a couple who both experience the crazy highs and the depths of despair, treasure the middle. It's tranquil and lovely, because it's neither a feeling to try to make go away nor a feeling to worry about achieving again.

You're absolutely right, of course. The middle ground IS lovely. And I no longer feel like I'm going to croak from a stress-related illness, so that's something. :-)

Well, routine can be comforting just in its sameness; it's better than some stressful disaster or illness or something bad happening! And with your friend coming soon that should liven things up a bit! Hope your weather cools a bit so you can get your walks back; it's been crazy here, we went from 70's F one day to 20's F the next and sleet flurries, now it's back to highs of 80 F and blowing dust, sigh.

You've had weird weather for sure, with such a huge variation. Here it's just been uniformly hot, although today was a much more comfortable 28C.

Life is just life most of the time, but there's nothing wrong with contentment.

Contentment is good *nods wisely*. And there's not a single day that I've woken up and regretted my decision. Not one.

What, you have an old co-worker following towards you? That is brilliant!

if the temperature is any higher than 22C at 5.30am
You're making this up, aren't you? Yes? Yes? (...no? *graceful thud to the floor*)

Jealous of weekend time with sister - I am supposed to be with mine this weekend, only... I was supposed to travel by rail. Along the coast. The coast which got even more battered than my coast. With the rails with nothing under them. Yeah. We have rescheduled. Treasure your sister time!

Yes, I finally won him over to the dark side. We have been having lunch every payday since I left, and the conversations have always revolved around how horrible his job is. I just sit there and smile... :-)

Not making up the temps. On three occasions last week it was 25C at 5.30, so not much walking was done. It was humid as well which really kills it.

Still having lots of sister-time - she bought a house three doors up from me, and finally moved in last month. It's wonderful! I'm sorry the weather conspired against you visiting your sister - Cornwall, wasn't it? I'm glad you've been able to reschedule though.
moonlightmead on February 22nd, 2014 03:04 pm (UTC)
Oh, she's there now? I remember you said that that was the plan. Fantastic.

Bad weather is bad, yeah! Rescheduling will work, though. Just have to have longer next time. *nods firmly.* Yes

Yes, you'll have to stay twice as long to make up for the missed visit. :-)
