Now that the weather is beginning to warm up, it’s the perfect time to make use of our gorgeous little rooftop garden. I love, love, love sitting up here on sunny afternoons and catching up on admin while taking moments to admire the view or listen to the sound of the wind rushing through the eucalyptus tree that provides us with a little shade.
This past week has been my first back at work since we arrived. I’m gradually adjusting to new hours and it’s wonderful to work an 8-5 day rather than fragmented hours as I’ve done for the last 6 years in the UK. It’s a revelation! For the last 6 years I’ve been a night owl – working a little in the late mornings, all afternoon and on in to the evening in order to accommodate client calls. But after this week of waking up early, I could very easily become a morning person (never thought I’d say that).
We’re also becoming more morning people for a whole other reason. Our downstairs neighbour has a new dog which he leaves at home while he goes out to work very early. This morning he left at 4:30am at the dog immediately started to howl for hours! Time to find some decent earplugs!
