I had a good weekend, which started on Friday when I had a stroke of luck. Being the last week of the Easter holiday, most of the office was away so there was only going to be 5 of us in and I knew I'd have juuuust enough work to look busy but not be toooo busy :) Now if only a certain stirrer wasn't in too, it'd be perfect! Well when I got in Friday morning to find out ShitStirrer had taken the day off as flexi, well, my grin could have lit up the Black Hole of Calcutta :D Ahh it was great!
Saturday and Sunday were all about the sport and the TV. There was football with two FA Cup semi-finals, although neither game produced a surprising result. There was baseball, although the Sunday game was rained off, after the Eastern seaboard of the USA decided to recreate the conditions Noah had when he built the Ark. The Mets won one and lost one, not too bad. They've had a decent start to the season, despite some woeful pitching. I am worried that our batting is looking more fragile than it did last year, though. Hrm.
Leeds won a very important match on Saturday - there's still a chance we can avoid relegation. And now I'm not going to mention this again until the end of the season for fear of jinxing it. *bites nails*
When not watching sport, I was either watching SG:A, which has officially eaten my brain, silly stuff on the TV like Bear Gryll's survival programme, which is lots of fun, or I was re-reading Margaret Frazer's Joliffe series. Just for a change, I started with the most recent book first and I've worked my way backwards. I'm now on the first book, "A Play of Isaac". I really do think these are better than her Dame Frevisse mysteries, mostly because although I like the latter, I'm not a huge fan of the split PoV the latter offers. I want to be reading about the main protagonist all the time, not what's going on in someone else's head, but that's a personal twitchy thing, rather than a major criticism :) The next Joliffe comes out in August - augh! Must. Have. Patience!
Yesterday at work, I was supposed to give blood but for the second time running, I was thwarted. Last time it was cos I was too anaemic, this time it was because the doctor listened to my croaky voice and said that they wouldn't take blood while I was still clearly suffering from laryngitis. Bah! Anyway, the doctor lady did confirm my thoughts that if I still sound like a bullfrog with a sixty a day habit in a couple of weeks time, I really need to go back to the quacks. Joy.
Today was all about the archiving *shudders* However, the end is in sight. I've reclaimed my desk from the nine thousand or so folders that were on it and I have vast numbers of neatly labelled and organised archive boxes instead. I've got 14 more files to archive tomorrow and then it's just a case of getting the boxes up to the loft. I'd have finished the job this afternoon but it was so hot in our office that I decided enough was enough and that I wasn't going to give myself heatstroke just to do the damn thing. So I guzzled water and did battle with some NEG forms instead. Much more fun :) And it stopped me acquiring any more cardboard cuts from the boxes. Those things are vicious, I tells ya!
This evening was all about the unexpected nap I took for 3 hours. While sitting upright on the sofa. When I say my sofa is really comfy, I'm so not kidding! And I'm still sleepy so hopefully if I get to bed at midnight, I won't have screwed up my sleep patterns too badly. I was very tired so it won't have done me any harm. *yawns and curls up around book happily*
