They’ve asked me to stay for another week. Yes, another five days of getting up before dawn and crossing the harbour bridge, working for 7.5 hours, and then going up around the upper harbour to complete a full circle of Waitemata harbour and reach home. Daylight saving means that I get sunstrike on the way in again – the clocks were all set back on Sunday morning – so now the sun is pretty much up by the time I’m getting the best view from the bridge. I am reminded, as I join the throngs of morning traffic, what a huge privilege it was to work from home. I’m looking forward to that routine again when I used to get some early morning exercise in before starting the day. All those photos of the inner harbour. . . the occasional coffee . . . a brisk 5kms under my belt before I sat down at my computer. Despite having a fitbit, (which I regularly forget to put on!) I’m still not managing the 10K steps I should be. I just can’t get up the gumption to go walking at the end of the day.
Still, it’s all money – and money I will need when I am back in my office considering where my passions and goals lie for this year. And look at that, it’s already just after 9pm and I should be in bed! Good night all.
