So today was my first day back after 9 days off. It was good to be back in the routine of delivering parcels again.
My partner had a health issue that required urgent surgery. Thankfully this all went OK and she’s now at home recovering.
I took the week off to be with her in the hospital as much as possible and then when she came home for a few days too.
Her mother is now with us for a week, mainly so that I can go back to work and start earning some money again, but also she wanted to come and make sure she was OK and would recover well.
It was an extremely stressful week after my partner ironically being given the all clear on the Friday and then by Saturday night something happened and she had to go in for emergency surgery.
Anyway, it’s all done and we’ll soon have our normal lives back once she’s fully recovered.
So today being the first day back I wasn’t sure what to expect, I did think I’d be given a bunch of shite deliveries, but it wasn’t too bad.
I was in an area I didn’t know, although it was a lot of rural deliveries I found all the addresses I needed to.
As always with a rural route, I had a few farms, a chicken farm that stunk and a sewage treatment plant that reeeally stunk, I couldn’t wait to get out of that place.
I started at 7am and left the depot at 5:30pm 10.5hrs, love it, rarely had a day like that in my last place.
But being my first day back for 9 days I felt pretty knackered so I haven’t done any weight lifting and I think i won’t until next week.
I’ll do a few rounds of some bodyweight stuff tomorrow, but tonight I’m going to chill and put my feet up.
Until next time…
