Thank god it's Friday

There are weeks when I greet Friday's with open arms, this is one of those weeks. Whoever knew that the Communications Lead and the Administrator on the project would have such extensive job descriptions.

Okay who am I kidding, I knew that if things needed to be done it would be me and fellow co-worker who would be doing it.

This week I believe we've both walked several thousand kilometres over 3 floors of the new building.

We've moved more desks, chairs and filing cabinets than there are people in Adelaide, well maybe not quite that many but it sure was a hell of a lot.

We've fed people, organised every conceivable item necessary for the project team, moved our own office members two additional times (trying to fit into the limited space we have) and harassed the IT help desk people so many times that I think we're both are on a secret hit list somewhere.

The thing is, when we walked out the doors tonight I finally felt a little more settled and organised - well until Monday arrives and we get thrown a whole new set of challenges. We've climbed mountains, leapt buildings and knocked down all of the obstacles thrown our way this week, with very few swear words (okay, lots of swear words but muttered very quietly)

Two days of peace and quiet is my aim this weekend. I don't want to talk to anyone, I don't want to do anything and I just want to relax. Probably not going to happen quite that way but I do at least plan not to move a table, chair or person for two days and that is achievable.

I just have to keep reminding myself of all the non smoking kilos that I'm kicking to the kerb with all of the additional physical activity. Five weeks of non - smoking next Tuesday - yeah me!

Well that's my news following a very exhausting week, hope you've all had a productive week.

Cheers, Fi

  1. Your move sounds even more fun than ours was.

    There was a lot of swearing during ours as well, and one of the IT people did admit that he was keeping a list called "reasons why Tinman must die".

    have a lovely quite weekend.


Everyone has something valuable to say and I would love for you to share your thoughts
