Away from all this, how am I doing? Nice day, shame about the politics. At home, where minor issues have been building up for ages, and at work where there are all manner of rocks and boulders raining down upon me, the day-to-day has its usual barriers and trip hazards. I say a lot more in the “hard copy” journals I have used since 2000, because the inner worries of my little world are more suited to the paper than the interweb. I cannot imagine, for I am always worried about saying the wrong thing through the wrong medium, never mind the context, putting some of my current worries on line. Money issues are usually alright, because we all have money issues so it doesn’t matter if I begin constant paragraphs about the credit card bill (just over £1,300), or the salary (currently being emptied because of more drink than usual), or the debt (which techinally is just the credit card given the ease with which I have been able to fend off T-Mobile, but still…). Questions and answers and constant boring references to the same all bottom lines stop me from going on about these issues all the time, which is a refreshing piece of information for you, and for me.
This week – more rubbish from work. We are two people down, at least, with one signed off with depression. I did some unpaid overtime on Saturday, trying to clear the backlog from two regions, but the lists keep growing even with the processing. I wil go in early on Monday to try and get one element out of the way, but the systamatic failures of the company are too great to be ignored, although the concept of dismissing woes is something I notice can be done easily in the higher reaches of the place.Tragically, I actually like the people I work with, so could not leave for somewhere else. I may have been driven close to a breakdown more than once, but the place has too much attraction to be somewhere in the back of the memory – it has to remain at the front of my present and future. Sadly, tragically, bizarrely, I mean every word. Also this week, I think a few drinks with peeps, money notwithstanding. As ever thus, more later on this.
