Wednesday was a holiday, so we had the day off in the middle of the week. And given that this week the kiddies don’t have to go to school, a lot of adults ‘made the bridge’ or took the week off altogether. So the bus was almost empty this morning, as it was yesterday. Plenty of space in the trains too. And the European district of Brussels is so empty you hear your footsteps echo between the office blocks.
I’m alone in the office too, my boss is still on maternity leave and my colleague called in yesterday to say that she’ll be absent until the end of the month in the best case scenario. So I arrive in the morning, start to work with the rustling of the computer fans on the background, eat lunch on my own, start rattling on the keyboard again in the afternoon and then close up to take an empty train back home.
IT’S SO DEPRESSING !!!
