Well, lots of things seem to have been going on since my last post. I had a week off work as I had a ‘crash’ again. I was getting later and later into work, then one Monday morning I just couldn’t get out of the house. I was so tearful and depressed for a week. I was so disappointed in myself, too. I’d been doing so well and then for me to crash I was gutted. It wasn’t work – it was stuff at home that did it. Mum went in for an operation and it just brought back lots of memories and fears around Anthony’s death. It affected me more than I thought it would.
My manager was really good and supportive. She actually came round with some flowers and chocolates to see how I was. I went back to work on the Friday afternoon and have been o.k. since.
Now, however, my manager is off sick. She was taken into hospital in the early hours of Saturday morning with a ruptured and septic appendix, lucky that it was caught in time. So that means that, once again, I am effectively ‘in charge’. I feel a bit bad about having applied for other jobs at the moment as she is going to be off for at least 4 weeks. However, I have heard nothing from the jobs I did apply for, so that may be a moot point anyway.
I am also thinking of password protecting some of these posts. I have been talking to Mrs Pillows about this. It certainly might have been helpful to be able to blog about some of the things going through my head during the week I was off, but I didn’t feel that I could because of people who might be reading this. So I just didn’t blog it. I am going to try blogging those things and just making the posts password protected when needs be. When this happens, just email me for the password. I am (blog name) at g mail dot com.
I have been very busy at work over the past few months, and there’s no sign of it letting up. I have over a week’s work of flexi time built up and not much free time to take it in. I’m averaging about 50hours per week at work at the moment. (calculated over the past 2 months). Plus commuting time. I don’t want to be working 50 hours per week. I want a life! Though I have some agents coming in tomorrow to help me out with some admin, so that might make things better..
Right. I suppose I should bog off and do something useful!
