..or train, depending on preference.
I am back on the train to work after nearly two weeks sick leave. I’m not sure how much better I am than before, but anyway. Here I am.
Not much has changed.
Getting up early is still awful. The train is marginally less full – I have a seat today – but I’m putting that down to it being holiday season and generally less busy.
Maybe I can get into the habit of writing when I’m on the train. I thought it was writing on my phone that put me off a bit. I’m guessing I was wrong. Faced with 12 days at home I spent practically no time on WordPress, and even those few minutes were on my phone. Ho hum. I did start posts, I just didn’t finish or publish them. I shall do that now.
I also had a request for an article for the English glassblowing magazine.
I didn’t write that either.
Instead, I sat in the sun reading, or slept, or filed paperwork (I’m almost finished – whoo!!), or fought the washing, or sorted out our finances, or worked on setting up a computer for work. Relaxing things requiring very little energy. I spread the slightly more physical jobs (like hanging the washing out) over the day.
Over the first few days I noticed how I started achieving more before heading back to bed. The last few days have been a bit of a setback. This morning feels almost like 2 weeks ago. Granted, I can open bottles again and lifting multi packs of loo rolls doesn’t take a huge amount of effort (that was when I realised something was wrong-er than just being tired), but I’m not oozing energy either.
Maybe staying at home would get boring after a while. I know I wasn’t bored and I have a list of all the things I still want to do and which I don’t get done when I’m working.
