As it is I had a rather nice (if damp) lunch with my ex-colleagues in CUP's canteen. Nice to see a lot of familiar faces and have a good chat. Was touched that even the canteen staff remembered me and said hi :-)
Afterwards I cycled into town before heading back to the office and bought a couple of towels from Woollies and then headed over to check the sale rail in New Look and see what I could find to sit around in this afternoon instead of soaking wet jeans. In the end it came down to a choice between long floaty skirt with mirrors stitched on or short black gypsyish dress. I went for the latter in the end as the former was white and looked daft with black knickers. So now I'm sitting in the office in a party frock with Doc shoes and black socks looking pretty daft really, but hey, at least I'm dry.
Bored in the office again, since I have it all to myself this week while Caroline is on holiday. But at least I have the work a bit more under control than I did last week. Tried to ring the doctors this morning but just got the engaged tone. Feeling OK at the moment though so I'll probably see how I do tonight and try again tomorrow rather than trying now. I wonder if they have any doctors at the practice who specialise in depression/stress, and if so what's the best way to find out. Especially given I hate ringing people up.
Overall though feel like I'm a bit better than I was last week, but that might just be because I had a pretty relaxing weekend. And I did have a couple of bad spots even then. Mum and dad visiting later this week. Coming down on Thursday rather than the Friday night they'd originally intended as dad has a couple of day's work to do in the Newmarket office. Mum's offered to take rjk out for lunch and then drag him round a garden centre and then come and dig the garden. Hope the weather's dried out a bit by then! It'll be nice to see them, but I do sometimes find it's hard work seeing them when I'm down 'cos I feel like I have to pretend I'm OK or they'll worry about me too much. Daft really.
