Isn’t it funny how you can feel like you are on a treadmill week in week out and at the very same time be experiencing a whirlwind of macrocosmic transition? Over the last few days so many things have happened and occurred to me and yet here I am, Sunday evening, getting ready for tomorrow’s school run – tomorrow’s commute, another Monday morning in the office…
Friday morning we found out Britain is no longer a member of the European Union (or are we? All a bit confusing right now). Many of you out there have written reams on the subject, Facebook was awash with doom and disappointment and putting a brave face on for at least 24 hours. The petition for a second referendum is currently standing at about 3 and a half million (be interesting to know what the record is for most signed petition to parliament – this is surely up there?). So much speculation, I’m just trying not to think too hard about it because I don’t want to spend another sleepless night worrying over projected futures that may never happen.
Myself and the boys are back with my parents as of the weekend and I’m still trying to get my head round another four weeks of motorways and racking up hundreds of miles on the car between now and the end of term.
I’m trying to be organised but it’s that old plate-spinning cliché – something’s going to smash eventually.
Oh and it was BML16 at the weekend and I missed it. I looked at all the posts and the pictures and saw some people I now think of as friends because I’ve had the privilege to become a member of this little online community. And yes, it did make me feel a bit of a pang because I was there last year and it was a buzz meeting people in the flesh, but actually, it also made me realise that my blog-life is not what it used to be. Having said that I will definitely be seeking out recordings of some of the Keynote speeches – I may not be a candidate for an award or accolade but I can still support those who are.
Emotionally I have gone from anxious to nervous to ecstatic, back to nervous again with a little bit of contented and exhausted and excited. So, yeah – bit all over the place really.
And nothing ever happens… until it does.
