Last day in the office

Well today is the last day in the office for three months. I feel numb, surely the thought of three months off, all that bed rest (and sleep!) endless dvd box sets (oh yes - on that note if you have promised Lost, ER, Desperate Housewives, Sex and the City etc etc then thank you and please don't forget to arrange delivery/collection!), and being waited on hand and foot should be attractive?

Sadly not - I'd give anything to be getting up tomorrow and taking the tube to Waterloo instead of alighting at St John's Wood and checking into the Wellington. As I think I have may have mentioned it looks to be a five star hospital - if there is such a thing. If only I were going to be able to appreciate the fine food and wine and Molton Browne toiletries!

But there is a sense now that this is inevitable and I just need to get it over and out of the way so that "my back" ceases to be the centre of my life - so to speak. I can feel another blog post coming on there so will leave this one for now and get ready to head off. We're briefing another group of Platform2 volunteers today - just think, when they get back from volunteering in India, South Africa, Ghana, Kenya, Nepal and Peru I will indeed be back at work and two inches taller. I know how the time flies between their "Connect" days and "Express" so here's to the time flying for me here too!

Thanks for all the comments by the way - keep them coming as love to know you are there!
