Not Dressed Yet

My Saturday in Six (and a half) Words:

NOON, AND I’M NOT DRESSED YET. 

Quiet. It’s been much too quiet around Figments of a DuTchess. The figments have gone into hiding, sheltering from the mass of work input. Work that normally is balanced between planning and creativity. Managing and writing. Working and spare time. But these last months I’m diving under in Excel schemes and scheduling, coming up for a quick breath and then going down again in exam planning. It’s eating up my Muse. And I hate that! This madness has got to stop. I need to empty my head, so other stuff can sneak back in. So now, indeed, I’m not in daytime mode yet. The Muse needs my attention, before anything else is done. Don’t come calling at my door, because I can’t open: I’m not decent yet!

Is age catching up on me? Or is the work load simply too heavy? My partner-in-work-crime has collapsed under the pressure and is now trying to find her balance again, struggling hard. I miss her each day. She’s the one who keeps me sane through the madness. We laugh and curse, work and rebel together. Get well soon, sweetheart. ♥

Yesterday our students graduated in a festive ceremony. Our team has worked so hard to get this done, and all went well. Many compliments and heart-felt hugs to my colleagues at the academy – you are simply the best. In the evening we all celebrated the start of the summer holidays with a delightful dinner. Only a ‘lucky’ few – including myself – will still have to work next week, but most are off on their six weeks freedom tour. Enjoy!!

  1. We all need to lounge in our pjs until noon occasionally. But don’t forget to feed your muse! I’m guilty of the same… Thanks for playing 6WS!
