Made it

I was in the car at 6:15 this morning, when the road was just a tunnel of hedgebanks, picked out and made ghostly by the headlights.

My eyes were still a little watery from sleep, and I was wondering how I was going to put my hair up when I'd left my hair clip behind while dressing in the dark. I was thinking, "must remember to pass on that information to that group." I was thinking, "must remember to do that, and that, and that task at work." Then I was thinking:

"Made it."

You see, we go on holiday tomorrow. Nowhere special, except to us, not for long, just a week. A week of brooding coastlines and winter castles, a week of rain and wind and whatever the beginning of November throws at us. A week of Husband and I, together. Books, food, and TIME.

And, as ever, it's been a bit of a slog to get to the point where we can go on holiday, what with a busy time at work, the MA, and the building work.

But no matter how much I need to get done this morning, and how much packing there is still to do (ie, all of it, which is a great departure for someone who's usually thoroughly listed five days in advance and largely packed by now), it's Friday and tomorrow is Saturday and however hard Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday were, I survived them, and conquered them and I have Made It.

It's all downhill from here.


(See you in a week!)
