Verbal mauling, random purchases and intimidating boys...welcome to my life haha

What a week last week! Work was horrendous!! I have pretty much been mauled verbally last week.  I was in court for most of the week for work and was required to give evidence for one of my cases and I was given a really hard time.  I have never had so many people from all different departments asking me if I am doing OK because they all heard how awful the judge was towards me.  However it is what it is and it's something that I have to deal with in my job.  It left me emotionally exhausted.  Even today I had someone asking me how I was because they had heard on the "grapevine" that I  had been put through the mill last week. It's been really nice knowing so many people care.  If I'm honest it has only been today where I have been able to appreciate the support that I have had.  Last week I was genuinely just a shell and although I know everyone cared I just couldn't process it all and I felt like I finished the week off last week just went through the motions.

That led me to spending the weekend re-energising, I was so tired and didn't have any real energy to do alot.  I pretty much needed some "Caite" time at home.  I made it to the mall at the weekend and bought a few items for my holiday which is just a few weeks away and boy do I need some time away.  

I haven't blogged for weeks and so much has happened that I wouldn't know where to begin to go through what has happened and the next month is also going to be just as busy both professionally and socially.  I genuinely cannot believe that we are already in April, this year is seriously flying by.  My friend keeps sending me random picture messages telling me how many days it is until Christmas!!! I keep telling him to go away because there is no way I'm entertaining the idea of Christmas just yet...it's my birthday before then and that's more important than Christmas until 1 December haha.

One of my purchases this past weekend was a random one...it was definitely an impulse buy but I love it.


That's right...I bought a cushion!! We all know why...it has polka dots on it and so that automatically means I wanted it.  It is so comfy and huggable haha.  I only bought it a few days ago but I've already lost count of the times I have been holding the cushion in front of me, hugging and I've rested my head on the top and started to fall asleep haha and if it's not that it's on my bed and I'll lay across my bed with my head on the cushion and my feet on the floor and I'm usually laid in some awkward position but I am actually really comfy and I've started to fall asleep again.  So my random purchase is already proving to be an awesome purchase.

Today after work I decided to disappear off to the gym late afternoon because I knew I would be working for a while tonight.  I needed to de-stress because I'm pretty certain my manager was trying to wind me up today.  Getting into the gym to take my recent frustrations out was what I needed and then spending a little bit of time in the hot tub just watching the world go by was great.  I had the hot tub to myself, I think there were some boys (they looked about 19-20 years old) wanting to get into the hot tub but they were sat outside the Sauna and Steam Room talking it up and I don't know if I intimidated them (I know, how could little old me do that? haha) but they eventually left haha.

This is how I felt after time in the hot tub at the gym today...relaxed and just enjoying time to myself (this is me on holiday last year)
My social life is getting even busier than it normally is especially as the warmer weather is bound to be on it's way soon (not that you would have thought it today when I got severely rained on haha)...no matter how busy my life gets I am looking forward to some lazy days hanging out with friends and just being random and silly...like this...
