I have been super busy both at home and at work. My mother and step-father came for a visit last weekend, as well as finishing my EMA I was busy entertaining and looking after them. We had a nice time but I will say more about that another time.
So that leaves work, which has been busy. The project manager was under a great deal of pressure to make sure the project ends this month, which translated into him being very keen for me to get everything done! We had implementations planned every day last week to get it all done but the main ones were Wednesday night and Thursday morning, early.... very early, who needs sleep? I was rushing around trying to wrap everything up and make sure we really were ready to go and by Wednesday evening I was frazzled. I tried to get an early night but things kept popping into my head about the implementation later than night so I was texting the chap doing the work. I also had to be up at 3:30am to be at work for 4:30am so was thinking about that and not sleeping.
Thursday came and after not much sleep I was at my desk by 4:30 ready for the final task of the project. By 7am we were done, it was done, everything had worked and the project was finished. I had a few bits to finish up but Thursday was my last day. I went for a drink after work with some of the guys I had been working with and spent most of Friday in bed with a mixture of a hangover (after only two glasses of wine!*?*!) and being very tired. It was a nice lazy day and Thursday had been a good finish for me. I felt that I very much finished on a high.
I am not sure if they will ever be able to have me back, it seems there are political things going on about contractors which means they might have me back. I am sure they know that some parts of their project would not have been delivered if I had not been there... so maybe they will change their mind.
For now I am having a holiday, it is very much due!. A six week contact in September to write some documents turned into seven and a half months of being so much more than a document writer. However, I did enjoy it but want a holiday now.
So that is me back to being a housewife / student / voluntary worker / gardener.... at last for now.
