Finally time to relax. The week just gone is possibly the busiest week I’ve ever had – spanning work, sport, travel and (a little) drinking.

Here’s how my week panned out, starting from Monday;

Monday

  • 0730 hours – wake up, shower, head to work
  • 1830 hours – finish work and head for football training
  • 2100 hours – finish football training, head for home
  • 2300 hours – have some food and get to bed

Tuesday

  • 0430 hours – wake up, shower, get a taxi to the airport and fly to London
  • 0830 hours – arrive in Kings Cross and head to the London office. Work and travel to two meetings in and around London
  • 1830 hours – flight back to Edinburgh
  • 2000 hours – land back, quick change then out to a work related event for some drinks
  • 0100 hours – get to bed

Wednesday

  • 0730 hours – wake up, shower, head to work
  • 1700 hours – finish work and head to play a football match
  • 1954 hours – sprinting down the line I pull my hamstring and now limp around like I’ve been shot in the backside.
  • 2030 hours – arrive home after driving all the way back in 3rd gear (I pulled the hamstring of my left leg, so have trouble using the clutch)
  • 2130 hours – nurse the hamstring, have some food and head to bed

Thursday

  • 0730 hours – wake up, shower, head to work
  • 2045 hours – finish work and head home
  • 2100 hours – get forced to go food shopping alone (still limping)
  • 2230 hours – unpack food, have some supper and get to bed

Friday

  • 0430 hours – wake up, shower, get a taxi to the airport and fly to Paris
  • 1000 hours ( GMT+1) – arrive at Paris CDG airport and head to a meeting in the south west of Paris.
  • 1330 hours – have lunch next to the Eiffel Tower in the heat of Paris
  • 1500 hours – head to the Paris office and work for three hours
  • 1830 hours – get a taxi back to the airport and fly back to Edinburgh
  • 1030 hours (GMT) – land back in Edinburgh and head home
  • 2330 hours – get to bed after some food (still limping)

This blog post acts as a reminder that ‘me time‘ is important! Hopefully this week won’t be as bad….and the hamstring is one the mend, although I’ll be out for another 2 weeks yet.

Flight - sunset - busy
