We have Pete and Samie Greig staying with us for a couple of days, which is really lovely. It's great just to hang out with friends, tell stories and relax. We are going to take them out on the westend with us tonight.
You can sometimes feel pressure when you take visitors out in the west end, you can end up hoping that it is a good night. Because what you get on my blog is the highlights of an evening we can sometimes just wander around and nothing happens, people are busy and everyone is sober! Well sort of sober...
It also happens when you have short term teams, but I generally think that as a permanent team we are over this. We don't stress if we have a quiet night, actually sometimes it's a relief, last night was the first since Saturday that we didn't get a call or weren't out until 5 ish am. I might get some multi vitamins, surely living off this much coffee can't be good for me.
It's early in the season but we are as busy as we were in the middle of the season as last year, we really need to make sure as a team that we live a sustainable life style.
Obviously with Tracy and myself we have the added complication of two great sons, who have to get up at 7.am and be taken to school. This will only be for the next 4 weeks but it makes this time particularly tiring.
Anyway, everyones still in bed I have done the shool run, had a coffee with a friend and swept the porch, it's 10am and already 24 degrees.
