Week 44/2022: It’s not happening

Week of 31 October 2022 It’s not happening I don’t know, I’m just not feeling it at the moment. Unmotivated, uninspired, like I could just sit on the couch all day and feed my mind and body crap. I know there’s a lot of pandemic fatigue out there and...

Week 43/2022: The week that wasn’t

Week of 24 October 2022 The week that wasn’t If there were a prize for the worst week of the year so far, this week would win it hands down. It was my first five-day work week for a while and I had to spend two days in an...

Week 41/2022: Doing the morning ritual

Week of 10 October 2022 Doing the morning ritual Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been reading Laura Vanderkam’s book Tranquility by Tuesday.  This week I started thinking about rebuilding my morning ritual as Laura suggests in the first chapter. It’s the logical extension of going to bed...

Week 29/2022: Our bodies are made to move

Week of 18 July 2022 Our bodies are made to move That’s what the shoulder guru physiotherapist said to me at my first appointment on Tuesday. I mean, I know this, right? We are meant to move, not sit staring at a screen for eight, ten, twelve hours a...

Week 17/2022: Hi-ho

Week of 25 April Hi-ho This was the last week of my extended Easter holiday. I’d decided not to go back to work on the day after Anzac Day, which was Tuesday, because Tuesday is my half day. I had a medical appointment in the middle of the day...

Week 06/2022: Back to work

Week of 7 February 2022 Back to work This week it was time to say goodbye to my casual days at home. School went back on Wednesday, I went back to work and it was the first week of my TAFE course (thing 8). My actions for this week...

Another new year

Before the day begins, before most people are out, the sky continues to change as it has done forever. The terms beginning and end are meaningless here as is, I suppose, the term day. These words are human constructs to mark the passage of time, which, to our thinking,...

Week 46/2021: a frustrating week

Week of 15 November 2021 A frustrating week Following last week’s post about building in buffer and recovery periods during your day so you can come to your work at your fullest capacity, this week has felt like a continuation of the last two. I’ve felt like I have...

Week 44/2021: i’m not listening

Week 44/2021: Week of 1 November 2021 I’m not listening I felt better this week than I did last week and finally went to see my physio needle massage therapist (I’m not sure that this is his official job, but it works for me.) He had been in the...

Week 43/2021: one of those weeks

Week of 25 October 2021 One of those weeks After our lockdown and a lovely day off last week, I was going to say things went more or less back to normal this week, but I don’t like the word normal and I’m trying to eliminate it from my...
