Some days I get very ‘peopled out’.
I am there now.
Its been a week spent primarily around people – often new people. Its been a week with family coming and going from our home in various ways at different times. This morning (or for most of today I should say!) we had brunch with 7 other families from our neighbourhood and it was fantastic, but… it has caught up with me.
I am tired.
I am in ‘hide’ mode until the batteries recharge and I can connect with people again rather than merely occupying the same room.
Our last guest goes home tonight and there is nothing in the diary tomorrow.
Note to self: keep it that way…
I have played a lot of sport over the years and this feels like the emotional equivalent of a 5 day basketball carnival or a long weekend surf trip.
I’ll be back.
