Today was the day, the first day back at work.
I was very apprehensive and a little worried about returning to work after such a long absence.
The ‘working’ day started at 10 a.m………..usually this would have been 6 a.m., but my employers were very good in allowing me to start later; and for a reduction in hours for the time being.
A semi formal meeting with management, (formality isn’t my strongest point), to get the paperwork out the way, and then it was time to ‘work’.
This consisted of a lot of handshaking and well wishes from my friends and colleagues. A lot, because no work was actually done today. For me, it was quite an emotional day, and tiring, despite just ‘talking’.
With the first day out of the way, tomorrow I can get on with easing myself back into it all.
Right now, I feel like I've done a weeks work; I feel exhausted. An early night I think.
I’ve certainly missed my visits round my local lake, but the discipline of work will probably be good for me.
