It's a holi-holiday

After the initial few days of being quite tired and even going to bed early (ish, considering I didn't have to go to work early the next morning), by Wednesday I was feeling a bit better and thanks to my sister being here, also quite resigned to having the operation moved to Bergen. It was like Anvilcloud commented (paraphrasing here): it's not often somebody is so disappointed about not being cut open. 

Well, the new date for the cutting open bit is set (into hospital on Tuesday, operation on Wednesday), my mum is flying to Haugesund just before the weekend to look after me for that first week. Hopefully I will be well enough by then already to be able to go home as well. I have decided to take the ordinary bus to Bergen, I have after all, plenty of time. 

The rest of this week was spent in a fairly lazy manner. We went on a few walks, read books, crocheted (my sister), made cake, did some shopping and watched television. Basically enjoying a lovely beach holiday without the beach. 

Yesterday I went out on my own though: we had the annual meeting for the Staff Club. First I was roped into the counting corps and even had to count the votes and then at the end I was suggested as a member of the Election committee. Basically next year I will have to approach people and ask whether they would be interested in sitting in the board of the Staff Club. It's only a small job, since I declined the offer of becoming the vice-chairman. 

So, there you have it. My holiday is nearly over, I will be taking my sister to the airport before going back to work on Monday. For one day only and then I will be on sick leave for at least six weeks.

    All seems to be order then... I think you were meant to have the chillax time with your sister as a kind of 'prep'... enjoy the rest of the weekend! YAM xx

    1. And I really needed it as well! Feel much more relaxed now. Just a shame I have to work on Monday ;)

  2. I like "beach holiday without the beach."

  3. Sounds like a nice week with your sister. Glad you have all things figured out for your surgery and your mom coming out to help. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

  4. That's quite an honnor to be suggested as a member of the Election committee.- ! Sad that your sister had to leave, but some company before the operation is also good.

  5. Wishing you the best during the surgery and recovery.
