It's the same for me every year - I start to feel really burnt out in the middle of August and really could do with a week off work to get my strength back. That isn't going to happen of course, so I just plod on through it with a smile on my face. In about seven weeks the ferry season will be over for another year so I guess this craziness is just a blip in the big scheme of things.
I'm off work tomorrow so I'm planning NOTHING for the whole day apart from crochet, a glass of wine, some chocolate and hopefully a beach somewhere in there too. My days off work are so precious at this time of year as it's when I get a chance to recharge my batteries.
Progress with our conservatory is really moving on now - it's all finished now apart from all the interior stuff such as getting a radiator plumbed in, getting the electrics sorted, getting the floor in and getting the builders back to finish the plastering/tidying up. We'll get them to make us a new patio too once we can decide on how big we want it to be!
It's going to be such a great addition to our house - our little bungalow is so tiny (big enough for the two of us really but it's always nice to have some extra space) - I can't wait until it's all finished and we can start moving furniture etc in there and enjoy it properly.
