Little boxes all matching line my cupboard shelves. Filled with treasures and practical "stuff". Easy to find – and neat!
Grocery lists carefully written, dairy products listed together, meat, cleaning products – categorized!
Week-end arrangements made in advance and diarised so that there can be no confusion, and no double bookings!
Holidays planned with leave forms completed and approved!
No impulsive decisions – everything carefully thought through!
Sunday night – sudden decision. No time to think about. Tickets booked, bag packed. No telling anyone. Surprise visit - reasons ... but impulsive nonetheless!
Rush into office Monday morning. Put in 2 days leave. Check diary for meetings and re-schedule. "Out of Office" on and before I know it we're on our way to the airport. Anxious and heart beating furiously, I cannot believe I am boarding a flight to Durban. I did not expect to be back before September. As the plane taxi's along the runway, I start to settle. Quietly doing a check list in my head, hoping I haven't forgotten anything.
Two unexpected days out of the office, no normal routine.
Oh my Gosh – is this the age of living dangerously?
