Guess what I did yesterday.
Just take a wild guess… No?
Yesterday, I did absolutely NOTHING!!! I did not even really get out of bed. Yes. Slothful I know. And it was absolutely glorious!
Went to Mr P’s on Thursday evening. Got there, had something to eat, watched a movie. Woke up eventually on Friday morning with my back and hip and neck an paroxysms – not of joy, that bed is still a bloody brick! – and then proceeded to just sit in that same brick like bed the whole day while being served hand and foot. Coffee, tea, food, movies… Only time I had to do anything was when I went to the loo 😉
But it was a good day. Of course, none of the movies we watched was light relief. He seems to like all the heavy shit. So we worked through Fracture, and A History of violence, and Soldier. Snatch was some fun, always good for a laugh 😉 Slept again, and then I came home in the early hours of a very cold morning.
Of course it rained a bit everywhere it seems – very early for the spring rain, but very welcome nevertheless.
And now, back to reality.
I got a phone call on Friday from the contract agency I work through at the moment. About the interview I went to on Tuesday. Apparently the woman that interviewed me wants me to come back there and see the husband. The owner of the business. The man. With the money. So, that’s what I will be doing on Monday morning. I will be going for a second interview. Still have to figure out an outfit, but I’m hoping that my road will take me a bit further – and not into the abyss as I’ve so often thought.
One good thing though. Paid the bond out of my credit card last month. Or so I thought. Turns out the transfer did not go through. But the arrears was only R400. and not the full amount. So I have some more breathing space for this month – and that, people, is how G-d looks after me. Little things, basically unnoticed, but they make the world of difference when you see the bigger picture.
And now, it’s cold. Very cold. Cold enough to warrant a deep hot bath with bubbles. I’m thinking that’s just what I need to drive the chill from these old bones!!
Hope your Saturday is a good one!
