There’s Friday’s and then there’s today…

I love Fridays! It’s the true beginning of a weekend. Well, I normally love Fridays…

On a usual Friday, my morning starts off just like any other morning, get up, wash up, dress up, eat up…then leave for work. On the drive into town, where my offices are, i always have my radio on 5fm. I love the Gareth Cliff show, some say he is rather controversial, but I love him, he always has a way of making me laugh and smile no matter what the traffic situation is outside my bubble of a car. Religiously, every Friday morning he and his team shout “ITS THE WEEKEND BABY” and from that moment on it becomes the start of my weekend…even though I’m on my to work.

Once at work, I have some tea (which is a absolute addiction of mine), read my emails and settle in for the day. Work on Fridays become rather unproductive after our team meeting as most of the office is in “Friday” mood. We sit and chat about work, actually do some work and generally have a relaxing working day.

My day normally ends around 4 in the afternoon on a Friday so I can beat traffic.

Friday nights are a buzz of entertainment (depending on the work week and how we feel of course)…clubbing, bar hopping, dinner with friends or eating out with the boyfriend. So all in all Fridays are a good day at work and at home…

But THIS MORNING was different… as soon as my eyes opened and i realised it was Friday, I had another rather irritating pound in my head that wouldn’t go away… it turns out to be a headache from HELL!!!!

So my drive into work was not very joyful…Gareth didn’t even manage to put a smile on my face in the car, and when I got into work, my body felt like a heavy lump of lard!

I think I’m getting flu… ON A FRIDAY!!! what are the odds…. AARRRGGG

…and I still want to go out tonight???

…this is where I wish I was…

Unconditional love

My girlie

My girlie

My dog, Jackie, is one of my loves in life! ‘my girlie’ as she is nick-named has my companion and love through alot in my life… I mean I wish everyone was as bouncy to see me like she is when I come home! 🙂
Something a dog does give you is unconditional love, and between her and my white lab, Robbie, I am very spoilt!

I wonder how anyone can live without a dog!
This post came to mind when I was thinking about the move ‘Marlie and me’, it is a MUST watch if you own any dog! I happen to have a lab which gave us as much grief as the lab in the movie! I think that animals form a very special connection to us and the fact that they live through (and put up with) all our tears and laughter, they definately form a major part of our lives.

I just decided to write something about my dogs, and I’ll most probably keep writing something about them as they are a HUGE part of my day.

I’m sure when I get home today, I’ll be recieving a big slobbery kiss from Robbie on my elbow (his usual spot) and a howling Jackie (she gets so excited that she can’t control herself

… just what I need to end a work day
