I’m on leave from work for the next two weeks. Once again, I have no idea what I’m doing for most of it. I have one or two things lined up, but for the most part I will be just resting. One thing’s for sure, I need it.
It nearly always seems to be the case that whenever I do plan on doing certain things when I am off, it never really comes to anything anyway. Before you go off, you say you’ll do things like clear out your old stuff you don’t want anymore, go through your finances, start on that novel you’ve been wanting to write for ages, then when the time does come along, you just can’t be arsed with it at all. Then by the time your leave is over, you feel guilty thinking you never really did anything during your time off.
For the record, I’m aiming to use the time off I have to catch up on the Doctor Who episodes I’ve missed, continue with the online photography course I’ve had to put off for a while and maybe think about what I really want out of this thing called life. And work on that novel.
So as of tomorrow I am off work for two weeks and aside from having a dentist appointment and a hospital appointment during this time I don’t have a clue what I am going to get up to during my time off.
I could get around to clearing out all the clothes I don’t wear anymore, but I don’t fancy doing it in a cold bedroom.
I could do my Christmas shopping, but I have no idea what to get anyone yet.
I could go out every day, but I have heard that we’re meant to be getting a very cold snap soon involving snow. I don’t fancy getting stuck anywhere because the snow has brought everything to a halt (not that I think we’ll get heavy snow but even one snowflake on the ground causes people to panic in this country).
Or I could just spend a lot of it sleeping.
Yeah sleep. That sounds good.
So I am currently on holiday at the moment. I’ve got two weeks off – well, two weeks and a day. I’m off now because like everyone, I need a break from work, but also I have to take them by the end of March otherwise I’ll lose them and there’s far too many left for me to just throw away.
Before you ask, I have no plans to go away anywhere, except for just the odd day trip here and there. I’ve not really done much the last few days, except chill out, try and get past the Radical Highway level on Sonic Generations and help my parents out with stuff. My dad hasn’t been well the last couple of days, so I’ve been looking after him while my mum’s been at work. To be honest, it’s just been nice just being at home, sitting around with nothing incredibly urgent and important to do. My only gripe is that my body still wants to wake me up at 7:20am. Even on annual leave I can’t get a proper lie-in, what the hell’s up with that?!
I also thought that while I was off, I might be able to do a bit more writing, maybe take some photos or even videos but I’ll have to wait and see with that one. In any case, I might be waffling on here a bit more often than normal. I apologise in advance if any of it is so obviously done of boredom.
