Too much swirling inside my head
This week my mind feels overloaded. So much is going on in my life and there's lots of things that I'm thinking about, so this post is my brain dump to get it all out. There are also three things at the bottom of this post that I want to share which I came across this week. Feel free to steal them and share the love (I have)
1) Three short weeks until my grandson makes his arrival (or sooner). So very excited and trying to restrain myself from buying every 'cute and adorable' thing I see.
2) Work is flat out, from nothing to do, to doing the work of three people at the moment while we're trying to recruit for these positions. I won't move into my new role until we can find someone to replace me in the current role. I have a meeting with a potential candidate next week so fingers crossed. Work is so crazy at the moment that I'm filling A4 pages of tasks every day to ensure that I don't forget to do everything. If it's not written down I worry that it will get lost in the swirling mess in my head.
4) I'm currently putting together a quiz night for the Social Club at work. At my old job I restructured and ran the social club with the help of some fantastic people. Our social club activities and the members were legendary. Now they want me to work my magic at the new workplace and create the same sort of social club. It's just not the same though and I'm not sure how to politely back out of it. I gallantly offered to do the quiz night several months ago when I was bored out of my brain with no work to do. How fitting that it's coming up now when I don't have time to scratch myself.
5) Everyone seems to be having birthdays at the moment - fancy dress birthday party last week, another 40th tonight and then another one in a couple of weeks. Plus youngest MM's and nephew's birthdays in July. Argh, so not in the party mode at the moment.
So you can see why my mind is a mess of swirling work tasks, quiz questions, blog posts and baby thoughts along with all the normal rubbish that fills my head. The thing is I love having heaps going on because it makes life interesting.
Share # 1 A Friend That's Always There
Sourced from The Friendship Page
If I could catch a rainbow I would do it just for you
And share with you it's beauty on the days you're feeling blue
If I could build a mountain you could call your very own
A place to find serenity. A place to be alone...........
If I could take your troubles I would toss them in the sea
But all these things I'm finding are impossible for me
I cannot build a mountain or catch a rainbow fair
But let me be what I know best. A friend that's always there.
Share # 2 There comes a point in your life when you realise:
Who never did,
Who won't anymore...
And who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past,
because there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
Share # 3 Hugs keep us alive
Thank you Ticklebear for allowing me to steal this one. I love this pic, it reminds me of the warm feeling you get on the inside when someone gives you a hug. Hugs fix a multitude of things and cost us nothing.
Hug and be happy everyone - hope you all have a great week.
'Friends are a very rare jewel, indeed. They make you smile and encourage you to succeed. They lend an ear, they share a word of praise, and they always want to open their heart to us.' ~ Adam Hart
