How’s things with you out there in the wide, wide world of sports? All good I trust. Compared to last week’s rather large post, this one will be a bit shorter. Well, I say that, let’s see if I get a special delivery from The Muse 😉
The start of the week was not so good. No bad news or anything, but again, another drop in the old brain chemistry. Not the complete drop and inability to function level of badness, but not that pleasant either. From what I could tell, there was nothing bothering me per say, I guess it was just one of those things. Still, you ride it out: keep busy, do things with the kids, get your head down. My mood got gradually better, although maybe that’s due to it being the end of the week and not long from now, I’ll be a year older. The Ever Lovely Mrs Jones commented that I’d slipped back to my less-than-happy self and we talked a bit about it. In a good way I should add. I’m seeing the doctor this Monday for a check-up appointment and I also got a letter from work about the Counselling Team confirming some dates in October. It might be a bit of a wait, but there are other folk in the queue and considering I’m not having to pay for this, I won’t complain. It’s just a statement of fact.
So, another year older? Well, it’s better than the alternative, LOL 🙂 There’s nothing planned and I’m fine with that. Much as I like a party – see previous Chams party nights – there are times when I prefer a low key event. With a spot of luck, the Jones Massive will invade a local restaurant and provided we behave ourselves, we may even be allowed back another day 🙂 I think birthdays are a bit odd as you get older – and hell – I wouldn’t consider myself ‘old’. It’s just a number right? Does anyone feel old at all? I have a few very minor aches and pains – and I stress the word minor – but other than that, I don’t feel that much different to being 28. Turning 30 was fine, I found 25 more of a shock. The big 40 isn’t that far away and the closer I get, actually… I don’t know. Maybe that will be more of a surprise? I guess I’ll see.
Wee Man is back at school and he’s doing well. Funny, there’s something about the September weather than always reminds me of school. It’s that odd change between the seasons. Some days it’s very warm and very summery, other days – and it’s usually early morning – you get a taste of the chill to come. I’m enjoying the cooler weather and as the nights begin to get darker and the weather cooler, so fashions are shifting as the season turns. I’ve yet to see anything I really like, but time will tell on trends and maybe the Fashion Fairy will sprinkle me with a little magic dust. A girl’s got to have something cool for the next BNO in October.
