Phew, what a week it’s been. Getting the magazine to press in the day job, and getting ready for Saturday’s wedding in the ‘evening job’ has certainly taken it’s toll this week. Oh and I’ve also been working on setting up the client-side of my website, with the help of the indispensable Paul. On Tuesday I went to check out the venue for tomorrow’s wedding, and yesterday I finally met up with the couple. It was slightly nerve wracking not having met the clients until two days before the big day, but luckily it turned out that they’re all-round lovely people.
Running around all over town has meant that I have had zero time for housework and the flat is an absolute mess, which kind of adds to the stress of everything. Hopefully, unless I’m completely dead, I can do something about that on Sunday. S is off to Ireland on Sunday for two weeks with work. It’ll be strange having an empty house for that long…
Despite being tired and stressed I’m really looking forward to Saturday. It’s great to finally start shooting these weddings that have been in the pipelines for so long. It’s actually the enjoyable side of running the business, unlike all the admin work that’s been piling up recently.
It’s Layla’s birthday on Sunday (I know this since she’s been reminding me every day for the last month), and today we went out for a celebratory lunch in Nando’s in her honor. It was only my second time in Nando’s ever, and it wasn’t half bad. Even if my food took forever to arrive and I then had to practically run back to the office as my lunch hour was up. Oh well.
I’m taking a couple of days off work next week (thank god for April and the start of new holiday year) in order to process tomorrow’s wedding and partly to avoid all the G20 hoopla. I just have no energy for any extra commuting disruptions.
But yeah, I’m alive, just a bit snowed under!
