I’ve not been posting much this week as it’s been quite busy for me. I’ve been acting in my boss’s job for this week and will be for the next couple of months. Part of acting in a manager type role is attending meetings and I’ve sure been doing that this week while trying to get my head around doing a different role.
I’ve also had to do my job this week until my replacement starts next week. In addition to that I’ve had one and a half days of workshops and I only work four days a week. Fortunately there’s been no big crises so I’ve been able to manage.
I’m also going away to the riverland this weekend for a wedding. My sister was going to come over and stay with JJ but we decided it would be easier on her (and I thought on my house) if I took JJ over there. So tomorrow I’m going to a birthday party in the morning, then doubling back to do a two hour drive to my sister’s and a two hour drive back here. I plan on getting an early night tonight.
The reason I’m dropping JJ off at my sister’s is that I’m going to a wedding in the riverland on Saturday evening and it’s a kid-free zone. I can’t wait.
And if you’ve read this far you deserve some gossip. I went out on a date last night. We met on one of those internet sites. He’s a bit older than I would normally go for but he doesn’t look it. We met at a pub in town and had a couple of drinks. The conversation flowed pretty well. He texted me today and said he enjoyed our chat last night and he’d like to see me next week. After some more texting we’ve arranged to meet for dinner next week.
I feel a bit ambivalent at this stage. He’s nice enough but I didn’t feel a ‘spark’ with him. Should I feel a spark, or is it something that can develop? In analysing my past relationships and crushes, when I’ve felt that spark it’s quite often developed into nothing except heartbreak on my part. So this time I’m going to persist as long as it feels right and just see what happens.
