So...aside from almost being killed by someone turning in front of me, with no signal light on, I've had a pretty good day.
I managed to get plenty of work done at the office, eat a healthy lunch and there is now a strong possibility of a visit to the pub for "Wing Night" with the girls.
And - as an added bonus I was treated to a 15 minute massage today when my boss brought in a shiatsu/massage practitioner to give the staff a little rub. Yes - the people I work for are ridiculously cool.
We were asked to choose an essential oil that was dripped onto a sash that covered the massage chair for some aromatherapy benefits. I immediately said "Rosemary" without even thinking, which was a surprise because it's not my usual scent of choice. I figure I must have needed it though - and a quick check of it's magical properties and symbolism confirmed it: memory, health, love and protection.
Also - as a reminder from the Universe that all is in fact, not lost because of the intense heat and tourists - I have bright, happy Sunflowers opening up daily in the garden, a sure sign that Summer is not without it's rewards.
Now...I think there are some ice cold rewards calling my name.....
