Pre-Weekend Blues…Happens, You Know

Took my mind off the mundane and mediocre.


The day had been eventful in more ways than one. Sometimes it was like that.   

I was early at work. Missed breakfast at home so grabbed a croissant, a muffin (snack for later) and some other stuff to snack on through the day. The air was a bit chilly when I walked through the park to the office. At the office when I looked out of the window – the sun was out, temporarily, but as always, uplifting.   

At lunchtime I went with a colleague for a bite to eat at a nearby restaurant and the dish I chose really sucked! I wished I had not ordered it. The beef was really chewy and I mean chewy! I broke my left thumbnail and it was uncomfortable. I bought a nail clipper in a shop close by and relieved myself of the potential disaster – nailwise. Then it rained on the way back to the office.   

Fast forward……..   

That evening on the way to the club I noticed that the night wasn’t that dark….  As I walked out into the courtyard, I noticed the full moon. Wow!  I tried to capture it with my camera. The fact that I noticed the moon and wanted to take a photo of it was to me like seeking comfort in nature. After I took photos of the moon, the one above  included, I felt my spirits gradually elevated.   

At the club I met some of my close friends which was really great. Their animated discussions and laughter reminded me it was the weekend…yippeee! Later on walked to the station with a couple of friends and homeward bound. Grabbed a vegetarian meal at one of my favourite restaurants in the neighbourhood then home and comforts of things familiar.   

Looking back…no worries there are such things as pre-weekend blues…happens, you know.
