I now have a glorious walk through the Dockyard every day. It is beautiful and I arrive at work smiling every morning, even when it's raining. My staff think I am ever so slightly insane (and probably aren't too far off the mark) but I love it. My journey time has increased significantly but I have chosen to walk ten miles a day and not use the gym so I am actually cutting the working day by half an hour I promised myself that I wouldn't work from home now that I have a longer day but this weekend and next I have to or things won't get done for when they need to be. The CO told me to be careful that I don't burn myself out. I'm pacing myself: puppy and I walked into town for a few groceries earlier (she's poorly today ) and I'm heading off for a nice relaxing bath now. It'll be worth it when everything comes together. I'm taking a couple of days off in a fortnight for a belated birthday weekend back oop North, then a whole week in March (see below) and another in April when a friend visits at Easter - she's only down for a few days but as it's a Bank Holiday, I might as well take a week and get some R & R. My Valentine had roses delivered to the office for me yesterday, roll on March when he can come home for his Valentine's treat... Copied from blogs (original entry) - post comments here.
