Not catching up at all

The title is a follow up to the blog earlier in the week , where I made the rash assumption that I would be able to catch up with all the things I have put to one side over the break. I can’t catch up. I just need the break from everything and not to use time off work to fill the hours with things that frankly look a lot like work.

At the time of writing we are six days into the new year with all its resolutions and promises of more efficiency and more productivity. Frankly, I am tired and need these last few days of rest before the start of work tomorrow. I am not doing the admin jobs which I am supposed to be doing to “get ahead” before I enter back into the new routine.

Instead what I have done in the last couple of days is use the time hang out with people I can’t see because they and I are at work. I have been able to be spontaneous in meeting up with people. I have been able to spend lots of time planning some creative projects and getting stuck into a good book. I have indulged in a daily yoga practice.

I am hoping that I will not feel too overwhelmed with the task I have put to one side by the time we get to next weekend, but for now, I have just crossed some of the “catching up” tasks from today’s to-do list and put them into the correct place of next week. Fingers crossed the two weeks of rest and relaxation will have helped me cope with them all then!
