Work and Play

These two books kind of sum up where I'm at right now.

When things get ratty, when I'm tired, had four coffees in four hours and suddenly I'm smack in the middle of Stress City, I switch to soothe ...a little technique offered up by Stephanie Dowrick. It kind of works. Just saying the word
s o o t h e seems to help.

This week has been about work and play...and trying to strike some balance. A long working week of learning new stuff and creeping out of comfort zones has begun and now I'm all up for a bit of playing. Have a good weekend...and forget work until Monday!
