This week has been busy, hence my word of the week! We had guests arrive Monday afternoon, prior to that we were shopping for their arrival, making beds, hoovering, generally cleaning and tidying, etc. It was a bit manic!
Since the guests arrived we have, obviously, been busy. We’ve been out to our local gardens for a wander around there with them, to Vitré to show them a pretty French town, on a walk around Pontmain and into the Basilica and tomorrow we’re off to Fougères with them to do the market, castle, shops, more gardens and general sight seeing.
It’s not going to stop anytime soon either, once these guests go on Sunday we have more arriving the following Friday so we’ll be spending the ‘downtime’ between guests doing the changeover of bedding, more cleaning, more shopping, etc. The next guests will be here for 10 days, so we’ll no doubt, weather permitting, be out and about doing tourist things.
It’s stressful for me, what with the socialising and lots of doing stuff and late nights, but also nice to get out more. I do enjoy doing things, getting out, seeing the local sights, playing with my camera and stuff. It’s a nice change from sitting on the laptop all day. Having said that, I couldn’t do it every day, long term. It’s a sad reminder that I’m still not mentally healthy, and it makes me wonder if I ever will be.
