You’ve just been on holiday from work for over 2 weeks, it’s the night before you’re due back in the office, how do you feel?
Well this was me last night, Sunday night, and my main feeling was, “Do I have to go back to work tomorrow?” Why is it that just like weekends, time off work, always seems to fly in, but the weekdays when you are working seem to take forever?
It’s on days like this that I wish I could just decide not to go back to work again, but unfortunately that for me, like many of you, is not an option.
During my time off, I’ve managed to completely forget about work, and all the things that are outstanding, or that I have to sort out or organise when I go back to work. Even now (Sunday night), I’m still trying my best not to think about the hundreds of emails that’ll be sitting in my inbox when I login in the morning, or how many of them I need to respond to, and how many meetings have been added to my calendar in my absence etc etc.
Oh I’m not looking forward to going back to work, not because I don’t like the work I do, because I do, but because I’ve been enjoying spending some quality time with hubby. It’s been good not to have any pressing engagements or things to do, and just being able to decide on a daily basis what we wanted to do that day…I could get used to that!
Anyway, by the time you’re reading this I will hopefully have survived my first day back at work; my two weeks off will now seem like weeks ago already; and I’ll already be counting down to next weekend already!
Hope you all have a great week, whatever and wherever you find yourselves.
