No work today

I didn’t go in to work today. I decided I needed to take a day off. I just couldn’t deal with anyone or anything, I didn’t have it in me to face listening to other people problems, so I called in and I took a day off. And I feel all the better for it!

My supervisor was very understanding. She asked me if I would be able to come in next week, I said I would. She’s off next week, so she said she’d send me my lists today so that I’d know who to call when I go in on Tuesday.

So I’ve been pretty much relaxing all afternoon. I’m at my mom and dads house for the weekend. My mom went to the beach with my sister, but I didn’t go with them. Mom and me are going to go out tomorrow, we’ll go visit my grammas grave, and then go for a long walk around a local lake.

I’m glad I took the day off. Sometimes you just gotta be good to yourself. You have to put yourself first. If I am not ok, what use will I be to anyone else?

Awesome weekend!

I’ve had an amazing weekend. On saturday I went to the beach with my mom and my aunt, we had a great time there. We took the bus there and back. The weather was so beautiful. I even got sunburnt on my arms, neck and face. Its not too sore which I am glad about. We had lunch at a very nice restaurant, I did go a little off plan with my food, but I really dont care. All the walking we did will make up for me going off plan a little. We walked for 7.5 miles. I know it was that long as I counted it on my phone. There was a festival of the sea in the town so we walked around the town for a while, taking in all the atmosphere. It was lovely. Then we went to the actual beach. We walked the length of the bord walk along the sea front. Then we sat on the beach for an hour. after that we went to where they have a casino and we played the slot machines for a while. Mom won 25 euro but me and my aunt didnt win anything. Still though it was fun. We had a nice time and a nice day out. It was around 8 pm when we got the bus home. I really enjoyed the day. I was so tired last night that I was in bed and sleep by 10 PM.
Today was more relaxed. This morning I went grocery shopping with mom, I had to get my fruit for the week, my water for the week and a few other bits. My aunt rang while we were grocery shopping, she wanted to know if we wanted to go to a local garden centre to look around at the flowers, so we said we’d go with her. We looked around and then had coffee and it was a very nice day. After we finished there we went back to my aunts house for drinks, we’ve been there all evening. We just got home a few minutes ago.
I love weekends like this one. Making memories, having fun. Thats what life is all about IMO.


My sisters having a fun holiday

I got an update from my sister today. She’s really enjoying her holiday, its really hot in the canaries, around 35 degrees c every day.
they took the kids to a zoo and a water park, go carting, and to the beach, there is a peer on the beach, the kids have been jumping off of it into the water and loving it.
Tomorrow she’ll be gone a week already. It went by so fast!
I’m glad she’s enjoying herself. Her partners sister came out there on thursday with her kids, and his other sister will be coming out on monday with her kids, and his mom and dad are there already they went at the same time as my sister and her partner.
We’d have gone too, if my mom was able to travel, but with her COPD she isnt able to fly long distances.

Its going to be an amazing day. I’m so looking forward to it. I’ll take lots of photos and videos and post some to my blog for you all to see. So keeep a look out for them on saturday.

#writing prompt #26

Once upon a juneā€¦

I love the month of june. I love it because its summer time. There is so much to do. June is my moms birthday month. It is the time when I used to get summer holidays from school. It is usually sunny and warm. This june wasn’t particularly warm, but mostly June is a hot month. There are outings, there are family events, there are fun times. So much to do.
This june we had a family party, and we had my cousins wedding. Two lovely events, two fun filled events. We went for summer walks, we took the kids to the park, we went for long drives, we took the dogs to the beach.
I love june, and I love summer.
