On my desk

So many things on my desk, I may disappear under them. Well actually they were taking up so much space on the desk they are now on the floor. Sigh. I like to keep a clear desk but I think it's cheating if it's only clear because I've put everything somewhere else!

On my desk today is my breakfast. Have you noticed that food (and tea) figures heavily on my desk? There was that bun a couple of weeks ago and a cup of tea just about every week. I don't usually eat breakfast at my desk but today I decided to read some blogs while I ate, not a habit I intend to get into but once in a while is ok. Isn't it?

Anyway, I haven't been having my 2 and 5 as I should lately so I'm attempting to get back on track with that, starting with breakfast. Here it is, fruit, yoghurt and a spoonful of organic blueberry granola. Looks very healthy doesn't it? Tastes good too surprisingly.

Of course there is also the ubiquitous cup of tea (note the comfort mug is out again today).

Also some CDs I've been burning and my Grace cards because really I need all the grace I can get just now.

On my deskTOP I have a number of projects, most importantly the plans for some workshops I'm planning to run in term 4 and some other bits and pieces that I have been working on for way too long and really must finish - hello website and of course blogs to read....because that's important too, right? Right.

The eagle-eyed among you (HA! that's sarcasm in case you missed it) may have noticed that I have been rather out of sorts recently. There's been a lot of whining and complaining and talk of being unmotivated and a general lack of enthusiasm - exaserbated by being constantly sick for 5 weeks (I'm feeling much better thank you). I apologise. There's a lot going on and I am desperately trying to regain some excitement about my life - well my work/business life really most of the rest of it is good but work, well it sucks. I'm not sure what is going on, I always get a bit tetchy and restless around the equinoxes - don't know why - some kind of astrological anomaly I'm sure. Hopefully spring will bring with it some new energy and I shall be back to my old self soon.

I do have some happy news, my sister (youngest) and her family are arriving from Melbourne on Friday to visit for the weekend. I am very excited about that. I miss my sisters a lot (the other is in the US) and I can't wait to squish the living daylights out of my nieces and nephew and enjoy some food cooked by my brother-in-law (he's a chef and a good one too). It will be a weekend of relaxing, eating, drinking wine, shopping with my sister (woo hoo), cuddling children and generally catching up. Can't wait!

But for now....it's only Wednesday so back to work.

I'm eating my breakfast at my desk as I type this comment. Only because I don't yet have a dining table, you understand.

Of course Dave, perfectly acceptable under those circumstances and I'm sure as soon as you have a dining table you will abandon eating al desko. Ahem.
