It’s Friday – or at least it is as I type this – so it must be time for another weekly blog post huh?
[ insert long pause here ]
This week has been a bit odd. It feels a bit like I’ve been treading water. So much seems to have come in – at home and at work – that I can’t seem to swim fast enough to make any progress (Ed: keep flogging that analogy). There’s nothing major / serious – although we did have a bit of a worry about the dog’s health – just a continue flow of stuff that needed to be sorted out. But… it’s a long weekend now – thanks to the May Day bank holiday – so no work stuff to have to worry about for a bit. Yay!
I got my P60 this week and for the benefit of our overseas readers, that’s a tax form and it tells you what you’ve earned (and how much tax you’ve paid) over the year. Looking at the figure made me a little surprised, I suppose the overtime and other out of hours work soon adds up. In that way, I’ve something to be thankful for. Bright sides eh? 😉
Spare time being rather short this week, I’ve yet to catch up with emails – so my apologies to those I owe a reply to. The next Chameleons meeting is an 80s Party, so I’m running ideas through my head of what to wear. Funny, I pulled an 80s style jumpsuit off the sale rail the other month – gasped in horror at the baggy trousers + ankle cuffs (!!) – and put it back. Now I think that may have been just right because it was so very wrong. 🙂 Still, there’s a decade of mad costumery to go through. Not that I think too much about fashion and/or dressing up 🙂 I wonder how much brain power I must lose to secondary processing over fashion / fancy dress pondering. Still, it passes the time while stuck in traffic (Ed: and meetings 😛 ).
As I dropped Wee Man off at school in the week, I stood in the playground chatting to him until the morning bell went. There’s generally more mums than dads there and of those mum, a number of them will be off to the office after kissing goodbye to their offspring. A lot of them dress very well (IMO) and look good. Some opt for higher fashions rather than the more conservative / corporate look… not that it’s a sea of black skirt suits like I imagine the City would be (Ed: and for the ladies, something similar 😀 ). I did wonder to myself, which fashions of the last decade (or this one coming) will cause people to chuckle and ask themselves why did I wear that?
