The aftermath

Easter weekend’s been and gone and turns out the come down from uncontrollably happy is not so bad.

Friday was a lazy hazy day. Dave and I ordered takeaway, watched films, I read, he played games. It was wonderful.

Saturday morning, I met two great friends I haven’t seen in too long in London for brunch. It wasn’t as posh as it sounds though. Sorry to ruin the magic, but we ordered greasy fried breakfast in Wetherspoons at a train station, caught up, people watched and ended the morning at the Krispy Kreme donut stand. I don’t like Krispy Kremes so I got a hot chocolate.

Dave then came to join me in London for the afternoon and we wondered around being tourists until the wind and the cold drained us of all our energy. At that point we refuelled on snacks, got the train back to Watford, ate at Wagamammas and then came home to collapse. It having been our first ever visit to Wagamammas, we are both now big fans of Japanese food.

Dave and I went over to my grandparents on Sunday, where we had a beautiful lunch and a lovely day.

Monday was a house sorting, cleaning up, doing laundry kind of day and I must say we aced it. By the end of the morning the place was spic and span. Good job too, because my parents popped by with my brother in the afternoon.

Now we’ve bags of chocolate to make our way through. I’ve got just a couple of weeks to make the most of my freedom. (Because now I know I have a job on the horizon, it feels like freedom as opposed to just unemployment.) I feel young and world is my oyster-y and oh so optimistic, but at the same time, grown up and mature and adult-y in a good way.

I promised more information on the new job and I feel just about calm enough to share now. It’s not at all Music Therapy related. Not really. I’m hopeful I may be able to continue to save for my masters as it’s a London based job and the salary isn’t too bad, but the reality that I might not ever get to that savings goal hits home harder every day.

Regardless, the new job is very me. I’ll be working in the fundraising team at Alzheimer’s Society’s head office. Specialising in supporting the team who gratefully receive the gifts people kindly leave in their Wills. I never even knew gifts in Wills were a thing and I think that’s such an amazing thing to do. I can’t wait to know more and to help Alzheimer’s Society to help more people and to hopefully still find time to volunteer with them here and there too.
