I volunteered to do some overtime this week. Now if I'm doing overtime I like to do it at the beginning of the day because there's nothing worse than the feeling of watching (what feels like) all of your colleagues leaving at the end of the day and knowing that you can't go for another hour; even when you're staying on willingly, even when staying late was your idea. I much prefer going in an hour early and somehow it helps to make the day go quicker.
It seemed like a good idea.
Until Tuesday morning when the alarm was going off nearly an hour earlier than usual.
As you can see from this blog post, I survived.
I'm also not sure if I mentioned it here a few weeks ago, but I went for a new position at work and I got it, so a fair chunk of this week has been spent in training ready for that. I'm learning loads but I'm also coming home at the end of each day with my head spinning. Suffice to say, I've been unwinding with a lot of colouring in and not doing a whole lot else.
I've finished The Dwarves by Markus Heitz, started and finished The Time Machine by H.G. Wells, and now I'm onto The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky. The Dwarves took a lot time to get through (about a week and a half) so I think that spurred me on to read everything since there quite quickly. I'm just not sure what to read next!
As it was such a busy week, we took it easy yesterday. Mr Click whipped up a lovely Welsh Cawl (while I was away in Wales I instructed him to find a new recipe to try, he chose something that he thought was appropriate) and we spent the day watching the theatrical releases of The Hobbit films.
We didn't start watching them until nearly 11am so I thought we'd be pushing it to fit them all in, but we managed it, finishing up a little before 9pm. Very good going considering we had breaks for Tara, cooking, the loo and dishing up food. I've already pencilled in an epic marathon viewing of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Extended Editions for next Easter. What can I say? I like to plan in advance!
This week coming I've got more training so I foresee more evenings spent colouring and reading. I keep saying I need to get on with my knitting as well. I was so wonderfully ahead with my Nativity figures, I don't want to fall behind now. I may have to get Mr Click to hide my colouring books for a while!
