Some days have more content than others. I don't know how to otherwise describe this day.
As I went to work this morning I was a 5-day a week office worker. By lunch time I was a 4-day office worker/1-day self employed person. Imagine that!
The reason for this turn of events was that there were other changes occurring at work and the opportunity came up for me to tell my boss that I had plans to cut down. Suddenly it all made so much sense and it was so easy to say it out loud.
I won't actually start working four days a week until after the new year, but the knowledge that I will have more time for other projects is so uplifting. I was on cloud nine all afternoon! Still am as a matter of fact!
It is a bit scary, I will need to make up for the loss of income somehow, but tonight I'm just over the moon and will think about it tomorrow! And I'm not a procrastinator, so I will really think abut it tomorrow. It's on my to-do list! Tonight I'll celebrate with a glass of wine and slowly fall a asleep in my armchair.
Besides all this excitement I had some horrible Christmas campaign samples arriving which needed to be dealt with. I absolutely hate that part of my office job (see, I'm already accustomed to the idea that I have two jobs :). I also had an office work related (see, I'm really getting used to it now) meeting in the city in the afternoon and in between accompanied Wille to a photo shoot. My cute, sweet, darling teenager earns his own pocket money modeling. This time around it was for a cell phone operator. So far he's paid a large chunk on his state of the arts games computer, his iPhone and still has money in the bank to get a game or something else entirely should he wish to :) He's the best, my boy!
To top this weird day off, the little Red Cross charity shop "Kupan" was open on our way home from the subway. In the photo you can see my lucky finds. Love the little glass dishes (ash trays?). Love the little egg cups. Martin claims the orange one is his. The egg holders are going in the fridge. Love them too :)
Have a great Friday night! I know I will :)
Ps. I'm so smiley tonight, you wouldn't believe it,. Maybe I WILL write a book!
