If we were having coffee 23 July 2016 #WeekendCoffeeShare

If we were having coffee, I’d probably welcome you with a yawn and offer you the biggest cuppa I’ve got. However, that could just be me projecting my tiredness on to you. So if you’d rather have a tea or hot chocolate, please let me know. We’d sit down on the couch this Saturday morning and sip on our drinks while we talk.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I am exhausted. I’ve been busy now that school holidays are done and work is back in full swing. Plus for some reason this week, I’ve had things on most nights resulting in late nights. I’ve not had much sleep, only exercised three times and been eating pretty badly. It could be why a colleague commented I look tired. Apparently, my make-up no longer covers the dark circles!

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I’ve become a sort of secret-keeper. While my job is keeping clients’ information confidential, I have started having other people confide in me. I’m okay with that and have never broken confidences but even I’m starting to get a bit alarmed at the rate at which its growing!

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you I have still been thinking about what to do with my life. While I haven’t come to a clear decision yet, I have taken steps here and there and am just waiting and watching to see what the outcome might be. I guess when you doubt yourself that much, you just have to do things and hope for the best.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I loved my hike last Saturday. We walked the 28 kilometres plus a few more on a brilliant winter’s day. It’s been a while since I have walked that much and I was very, very sore that night and the next day. Fortunately, by Monday, I was ok again.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that while I’m not happy in my job, I do like a lot of the people I’m working with. It’s just a shame I don’t get to share more time with them at work due to my role being slightly isolating. Friday night drinks though, is always good.

If we were having coffee, I wouldn’t just ramble about myself. I’d ask you to tell me about your week. What’s gone well? What’s a bit blah?

Do share!

    Like CCD’s caption, ‘a lot can happen over coffee’ 🙂 . Reading this makes me feel you’re tired! But the days seem to be quite eventful though. Hope things get better. Lots of love. 🙂

    I feel like if I don’t wear make-up people constantly are saying that I ‘look tired’… How else am I meant to look at 30 weeks pregnant with a three year old and an almost 2 year old? I love coffee. Did I mention I love coffee?

    Isn’t it amazing what a difference the people you work with can make? There’s been many times this past year that I’ve been discouraged in my job, but my crew has helped pull me through! They are a terrific bunch! And I’m glad that you have a great bunch too! 🙂

    Wow sounds like you’ve been busy! I’m happy to hear you enjoyed the hike. Sometimes being content in your job is all you can do until you find what you know you were meant to do. Sending you love from the #weekendcoffeeshare

    Well done on the hike. Perhaps, you’re feeling tired because you’re tired. Need a bit more sleep. I am often stealing time from my sleep, to get more done. Hope you have a great week.

    Hope you get a break soon and find yourself able to rest! I know that if you’re working in a school system that first part of and last part of the semester can be crazy!!

    28 kms is unbelievable. You’ve got stamina girl! It’s a relief to like your colleagues and kind of makes up in part for not liking your work.

    Nothing better than having a coffee at Selva Negra in the coffee fields of Matagalpa, Nicaragua.
