Today was my last day before taking 2+ weeks leave and I absolutely had to finish a job and get it signed off by our Executive Director before she too went on leave tomorrow. It was a huge undertaking and I didnt even realise the magnitude of it until I got stuck into it.

So since last Thursday I have spent any spare weekend or evening time working, often til 11 or 12pm. I've had trouble sleeping so have gotten up early and worked some more. On the weekend I only did absolutely essential housework and some socialising with the family as the ILs are here for Xmas. The rest of the time I worked. Then to cap it off, I went into work for a 6.30am start yesterday and today. I had already done an hours work at home this morning (4-5am) before going to work.

I havent trained since last Wednesday. Food has been ok sometimes but could have been better at others. I havent planned or prepared healthy meals to take with me. I've been in "survival mode" with just one goal in mind and that was to meet my deadline.

So having achieved it, I can now breath and get myself sorted again.

Oh hang on, Xmas is fast approaching and there are celebrations galore to plan, prepare for and enjoy. Well maybe I'll start afresh on the 26th or 27th. Right now I need sleep, rest and balance.

I also have hundreds of blogs to catch up on and a Merry Christmas wish to send to you all.
