No rest

I'm going to be pretty quiet on here for a few days at least: I've had a hectic couple of weeks anyway - though largely in a good way - hence the relative quietness of late.

It'll be interesting to see what state I'm in early next week though. Come Sunday night I'll be doing the last of what promises to be lots of heavy lifting and carrying, possibly til 1 or 2 in the morning. This will be at the close of the music festival I'll be helping out at over the whole weekend (on top of preparatory work tonight and last night also - I've just got home).

Lots of labouring and effort and merely following the instructions of others, which has its own appeal: in contrast to my main job, it's refreshing to do some hard physical work which has a clear beginning, middle and end, and which doesn't exactly require much from me in the way of decision-making and intellect. The other payoff is that I get to see a rather huge amount of weird and wonderful music for free and to mix with some good people.

I'm looking forward to it.

But, Monday morning I'll be shattered: and Monday afternoon I'll be running the art class on my own for the first time, which has the potential to be rather hectic (it's been going well so far though, thankfully). Monday evening, I'll probably collapse in a heap.

In the meantime, hope everyone has a good weekend!

Sounds like you've been branching out! Best of luck with it all xx

All that physical work, with those arms of yours ...


Have fun :)

Physical none thinking stuff is such a good contrast to yours and my daily grind. I agree it comes as a welcome relief not to have to think for a while. So when you hit the art class running you should be totally ready to re=engage brain.

Hope you'll tell us more about the music and the art when you've had some rest.

Thanks ejenne, definitely shattered in a good way! It's going to be an early night tonight, I think. x

I did have fun, cas..



Good comment b-byrd, but I'm not sure that I engaged my brain during the art class today, I think I was just running on left-over adrenaline.. x

Thanks dj, I'll be posting something a little later on if I'm still awake.. x
