Maybe I just need to feel melancholy to start writing again *grin* – ever since I started my new job, I have been occupied by my projects and the ever-growing workload. Mind you, in this climate where people are losing their jobs left and right, I am thankful for being really busy with interesting projects. It does mean that I don’t have a lot of energy left to do anything else at the end of the day though – I’m usually home at about 7.30pm-ish, having to take two buses from work. The workday ‘officially’ ends at 5.30pm but I usually stay on a while longer because I have heaps of things to do and I usually get to work a little bit later than 8.30am. So, 6.30pm by the time I leave the office and 7.30pm when I arrive home. I’m usually too tired to do anything, so I end up sitting in front of the computer, browsing around Facebook or just plonking myself on the couch to watch some TV. Hehehe.
This week has been truly hectic for me – with a trip to Melbourne yesterday, a humongous project to contribute to with all of the reports that need to be made, plus more. I can’t wait for the weekend already!
The house is in a real need of a clean up so hopefully I can get my act together and sort out the mess during the weekend. Apart from the normal work, I’ve also been in numerous daytrips to Melbourne and Sydney to accompany the research consultant to meet the clients over there. I quite like meeting clients and building relationship with them, but the early morning flights and the evening flights back to Adelaide usually knock me out properly for the evening and the next morning *grin*.
Adelaide is getting cooler and cooler as well as we progress closer to Winter and it has got darker earlier as well. It hasn’t been that rainy in the past couple of days though so it is still quite pleasant to be out and about with a warm jacket and a scarf around the neck. The leaves have turned crimson and gold – some trees are even bare already. On the plus side, the rain last week had made the ground moist, which was certainly appreciated by the grass and plants in my frontyard and backyard.
Soon, Winter will be here and Nature will fall into a deep sleep …
