Goodness, all I want to do right now is to cocoon. Keep warm. Not talk to anyone. It’s a good thing that it’s the weekend.
It’s been a hectic month for me so far. It started on June 30th and continued until yesterday. I spent more time on planes and away from home than at home. Some respite is ahead thankfully.
The pink underlinings are the times I’ve been away from home on business and the blue underlinings are the start of the holidays.
I’m looking forward to the next 2 weeks – on Thursday I’m flying to Portugal and then to Barcelona. While in Lisbon I’m looking forward to the food and the coffee, exploring Roman historical sites and going on a graffiti tour. My Mom is joining me on August 1st and while we have some work ahead of us to renovate the apartment I know we’re going to get some girl-time – shopping, going out for dinners and having nice chats.
For me it’s partly a much needed holiday, and part work-related. The work related part is our international coach camp where all us coaches from around the world come together to learn from each other’s experiences, work on some innovative stuff and most importantly to have some fun! This is the Barcelona bit. Not sure how much work is actually going to take place in the middle of summer in Barcelona…
And the cherry on the top of all these upcoming travels – I’m going to hot weather – summerrrrrrrrr! Away from the cold winter of Joburg. And when I return to Joburg the worst of the cold will be over (I’m holding thumbs as I say this).
All in all, it will be good to slow down a bit.
