Town and country planning

I'm not terribly well organised. I tend to go from week to week vaguely knowing what I'm doing, because I work in a very structured environemt and work with very well organised people. I still mentally only really focus on the next thing I have to do. It doesn't mean I don't prepare for anything beyond that, but realise that it takes time to prepare. The last two weeks, for instance, have been a blur of events, meetings, interviews, driving to Leeds, Liverpool, Preston, Bolton etc etc.

The same goes for personal life stuff as well. I buy tickets for things and unless I'm really revved up for something it might take me by surprise on the week it's happening. I think a lot of it is down to having such a busy family life AND a demanding (and enjoyable) job.

ANYWAY. This is a long way of saying I'm going to be on my own for a week or more from this Sunday. Everyone else will be on holiday and I'll be at work during the day, but that then leaves evenings to chill out and do my own thing and two weekends either side. It's not a busy work week, because of the holidays events are very quiet.

For some blokes this would be paradise. The point is I've been so worried about being at a loose end I've put more planning into the week than normal; gigs, films, football, family, old friends, jobs around the house. I've even got my meals worked out. I still haven't sorted a ticket for the Specials in Leeds though. I was rather hoping Leeds would be in the play offs and would ignite the black market.

And I still haven't organised a game of golf.
