I like my job but for the aforementioned reasons (blocked nose, headache, rain, cold etc) it was last on my to do list today. I get so grumpy when I am sick, and tend to want to hide alone until I can breathe through my nose again but what with being an adult with responsibilities and all, this is not always possible. Anyway.
I've actually had a good beginning to the week until this cold took a hold of me. I spent Monday hanging out at home, becoming the reigning queen of my Inbox once again. I am truly terrible at replying to emails, and when I have a real solid session of doing so I feel like I can conquer the world. Tuesday I worked in the studio and it was a super hot day (in stark contrast to today) so I was melting up there, probably for the last time until next summer I reckon, so I tried not to complain too much. A friend came to visit and I took them to my favourite Smith Street daggy haunt that does $4 beers and good/cheap food. It was really nice to sit out in the sun on old mission brown '70s school chairs and have a drink in the afternoon, it's not something I make a habit of and it was very relaxing.
Last night a friend of mine Annabelle was in an exhibition at Slopes, also in Collingwood, so after work I met up with my friends Georgie and Georgia for a drink at Panama on Smith Street which was very adult and civilised. It's this place on the 3rd story of a building so you can look down onto all the people walking past on the street, through some oak leaves of a big old tree. It's really nice.
Then my cold and subsequently the grumps came on, blah blah. Ups and downs all the time with me. I don't have anything planned for tonight, so I PLAN to get into bed early and try to sleep this thing off! (Read - watch a really good bad TV show like Tattoo Nightmares)
