Perhaps I should call it Monday Wine Time..?
While I was going through my blogroll this morning (one of my favourite Monday morning tasks), Molly from The Move to America popped up with a Monday Coffee Morning post; the beginning of a new series where she talks about her plans for the week and what she hopes to achieve.
I thought to myself, what a great idea! Then promptly went on and did something else (like work). But the idea kept coming back into my head. I absolutely love blogging; I find the relationships are so rewarding. I have made so many fabulous friends through my expat blog Adventures in Integration over the last three years and I hope that MissNeriss does the same for me over time.
So, here’s what I’m planning to do this week:
Work. Gah. Busy. New release coming up fast that needs to be tested. I still can’t quite believe I’m working as a software tester. In my past life I’ve been a shed hand, a tour guide, an events manager, a PA, but never in my wildest imagination did I think that I’d work in IT, let alone as a tester. My job will be changing in the coming months; something I’m very excited about. I’ll be moving into a writing and editing and consultation position within the company. I can’t wait!
Family. For the first time ever, My husband and I will be going away for the weekend without our daughter. I know I should be nervous and anxious and feel guilty for abandoning her, but I don’t! Instead I’m ridiculously excited. I get to pretend I’m not a mum for a couple of days, and the added bonuses are that we’re going to France, and we’re going to a wedding of one of my dearest friends.
Out and about. We’re going to Toomler in Amsterdam this week to catch some live Aussie comedy which is always great fun. One year at a gig I went to I managed to chat to Adam Hills as part of his show. Talk about star-struck!
Crochet. I’m so busy!! I can’t believe it. I’ve just finished a lovely bag and bolero for a friend of mine and I’m working through a stack of Yodas. Hopefully I’ll get through them all this week, then it’s on to a giant bear which I’m gagging to get my hook into.
What are you up to? I’d love to hear about your week. I’m sure Molly would love you to link up too.
Don’t forget, I’m all over Twitter and Instagram like a rash, come say hi.
