Two weeks in review, the week in view: Fortnight ended 28 May 2017

I missed doing a weekly post last week - we had a huuuuuge weekend with my 12 year old's birthday extravaganza! - so this is a bit of a catch-up post.

The fortnight just elapsed has been quite light for work for me, due to a range a factors - projects do have their own flow, and I am in an ebb phase at present. However, they have been reasonably intense in terms of family and creative commitments, so it has been very helpful to be able to focus on that side of life a little more.

I do, however, have a new project in the pipeline - a kick-off date hasn't been confirmed yet but is likely to be either next week or the week after. Once that happens, I will be flat to the boards for at least a couple of months, so I am trying very hard to just enjoy the free air at the moment.

So here it is:

- Performed 5.5 days billable work (3 days in one week, 2.5 in the other) - no client visits at all
- Got to gymnastics x 2, jujitsu x 1, ice skating x 1 (missed both weeks of chess due to party and illness)
- Kids had school dress-up special days: Animal dress up for youngest, performance day dress up for the two high schoolers
- Mega birthday weekend for middle kid (12 year old) - fancy cake making (we made an ice skate - witness the laces! I was happy with the laces!), sleepover with three friends, then a big Sunday ice skating, birthday lunching, and going on the Melbourne Star
- Did personal training x 2
- Wrote, and published here, a fairly detailed book review post
- Wrote 5 poems! (2 are promising, the other 3 are practice efforts only, but it is just good to be writing again)
- Went out for river walk and lunch with husband
- Went to movies with husband and saw Guardians of the Galaxy 2, which was OK not great (but the time out was very great)
- 4 out of 5 family members had a cold for at least part of the time, although for eldest kid and myself it was very mild; husband was sick enough for time off work and middle kid also was pretty pulled down.

- 3 days billable work booked (1 day client site)
- "Mummy and kid" day with youngest on her school curriculum day on Monday
- Gymnastics - youngest (Weds), jujitsu - eldest (Fri), chess - middle (Sat), ice skating - middle (Sun)
- Next interschool debate for eldest (Weds)
- First Online Book Club meeting (Weds) - Discussing Steven Amsterdam's The Easy Way Out
- Get passport applications to interview stage
