It's the busiest month of the year work-wise - financial year-ends are doing my head in, we have overseas visitors arriving on Friday to spend a week with us, there are some personal family issues that are causing untold stress and to top it all we have had various home maintenance issues on the go for the last.... oh.... 6 months non-stop.... ohmyshatterednerves.
In the last month we had the entire interior of our house painted and literally the day after the painters left we discovered that we had a MASSIVE underground water leak (R6000 water bill to pay....! That sure gets the adrenaline going...) and so as we bid farewell to the painters we welcomed a leak detection team and a host of plumbers, who proceeded to dig up my laundry, the day after they left we had our new security system installed...hello security-people.... all over the house on ladders for two full days.... oh the joy! I really hope that is the end of that now. My introverted self does not take kindly to work-people in and out of my home, all day, every day.
Having said all of that, life is good and I have a lot to be thankful for, I am trying not to forget that and to take the time to acknowledge it in-between all the chaos and stress.
