Happy, Happy Friday

Happy, happy Friday! Oh, how we miss you throughout the week.

And is this Friday a happy one? Actually, I’m feeling a lot better than I have done recently. This past week in work has been surprisingly uneventful. There was still much to be done with very little help, but I didn’t fall apart. I coped, and I’m here to tell the tale. Proud of myself. πŸ’ͺ🏼

The good news is that they have hired a new manager who will be starting work in two weeks, so things should be looking up. But we will see. Watch this space.

That isn’t the only good news I’ve had (yes, really!) My blog hit 400 likes a week ago, but as I was immersed in a meltdown at the time, I forgot to celebrate. So here it is now – 400 LIKES!! Thank you so much to all of you for sticking by me through my sporadic posting, complaining, and seesaw mood swings. This blog wouldn’t be where it is without ya! 😘

Enjoy your weekend!

It’s Friday, I’m in Love.

It’s my favourite weekday again! That’s Friday, for those of you who haven’t caught on yet. It is time to put my feet up with a good book, and crack open the wine!

That is exactly what I will be doing when I finish work today, as well as putting the heating on as soon as I get home. There is a definite chill in the air! Winter is nearly upon us, bringing the Christmas season with it. Exciting times!

I’ve noticed that a lot more people are kicking off the Yuletide early this year, with Christmas lights already twinkling in some houses. It is difficult to avoid it these days, as the shops are shoving Christmas in our faces from September onwards, and the festive adverts are already on our TV screens.

I must admit, I do love everything Christmassy and will be joining the Christmas decoration brigade in a couple of weeks. There is nothing quite like twinkly lights to brighten up a dark, chilly evening.

Happy Friday! πŸ’œ

Friday Love ❀️ 

We all love a Friday.. don’t we?! Okay, apart from those of us who work weekends. Fortunately, as I don’t work weekends, I am able to love my Fridays freely – hence the name of my blog. 😊

Not everything about this Friday has been good though, I have to admit. I left work early today to take my cat Masai to the vets. He has been under the weather for the past few days. I can’t really pinpoint what it was that was wrong with him as he was eating and going about life as usual. But he was far from normal. For those of you who are familiar with cats, or any pet for that matter – you just know when there is something wrong. This morning, there was no question about it. He refused to eat, he refused to leave the house, and he sat hunched up on the table and let out the occasional pitiful miaow as if he was asking for help. Broke my heart leaving him, so I rang the vet once I’d arrived at work. 

Fast forward to early afternoon and I left work and sped home to pick him up, all kinds of worst case scenarios racing through my mind. The vet was incredibly helpful and admitted him straight away to do a barrage of tests. I certainly wasn’t overreacting, which I knew already. It is terrible when your animal is in pain yet can’t tell you exactly what the problem is. You feel helpless. But he is in the right place now, and hopefully will be better by the time I pick him up tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed for Masai. 


Have a great weekend! πŸ’œ

It’s Friday!Β 

It’s that time of the week again, at last! I seem to live for Fridays and the weekend, which is pretty sad really as I am wishing my days away. But I cherish those mornings without an alarm, when I can laze about and catch up on the things that I love to do, such as this blog, instead of rushing around and having to toil away at a job that I despise. Don’t get me wrong – there are far worse jobs out there, such as…. I can’t think of anything at this minute, but you know what I mean. If only I had a job that I loved. Oh well, the job hunt continues, but right now… wheeeee, it’s the weekend!! Have a good one! ❀️

Friday


At last, the weekend is almost upon us, and I am grateful. This week has been an emotional one for me, with work pushing me to the limits of frustration and anger, and my tiredness due to my low vitamin B12 levels. To top it all, my maternal grandmother passed away yesterday after a short illness, which we had expected, but which obviously brought sadness and grief. Although it is a great loss for my family, I am glad that she is in a better place. In her younger years, she was such a strong-willed, vibrant, even feisty woman, and to see her slowly deteriorate over the past few years as old age and dementia took hold was not nice. I know she’s in a better place. I am now ready to celebrate the life and times of such an influential woman and appreciate the years we had with her. She won’t be forgotten. Have a fabulous Friday! πŸ’™
