From today I have over a week off work, what I would normally do is sit around on my backside 'relaxing', only to be completely surprised by the bucket of cold water to the face that is a sudden return to work.
There are a couple of things that I will definitely be doing, I will certainly be giving my flat its long overdue 'Spring Clean', as I think the approaching Autumn is giving me a less than subtle hint that it really should be done. Likewise I'll be blogging all those other things that I gave you the chance to vote for a couple of days ago.
Another thing that I should be doing, is working on a few projects that I have been thinking about, the “Rough Lives Through A Rough Lens” (Pictures on my mobile phone of drunks I've picked up), 'You Have Cost Us' business cards (Cards I want printed that explain exactly how they have misused the ambulance service, to be slipped into the pockets of drunks), and a redesign of the website.
I keep thinking about doing things, joining a gym, learning a totally new skill and reading a few of those books that I have sitting around the flat. I thought that my recent health-scare would have given me a new-found lust for life, but instead I have settled into the same old patterns. The recent loss of a workmate has again made me think that I'm wasting the life I have. I have good health, I'm still fairly young, and yet outside of work I feel that haven't done as much 'living' as I should.
Perhaps it's just jealousy of the lifestyles of other bloggers?
So are there any suggestions as to what I can do/see in and around London. I feel that I should be doing something. Any hints on how to give my life outside of work a kick up the arse?
