Distracted

I long for an even keel. The current business climate is wavering, up and down, up and down, I know it will level out, just wish it would hurry up – I hate NOT knowing. Problem now is that this kinda non-mood is beginning to wash off on me, find myself in a kind of limbo existence, plenty going on, but feeling detached and remote from it… erk… not that again… will have to keep a watchful eye out for anything else that points down that road. Also finding myself disillusioned with things again, the cycle is getting shorter and shorter, not sure how much of this is tied to my current situation, but really need to address this. Think …

Weekender

Wooossshhhhh. So that was the weekend. Saturday, in-laws, haircut, curry at friends. Sunday, my parents, shopping and two Indiana Jones movies (they just don’t make them like that anymore…). Back to Monday already… Funny atmosphere of people getting on with their day-to-day work without really being too sure of where it will lead. Maybe it’s just me… Personally still knackered, sleeping way too much, but helping someone smile on Friday helped lift me, and I’m not being too pessimistic about any warning signs. One advantage I have now, is that I can recognise those signs easily, and deal with them much earlier on.

Crazy hectic times ahead. I would presume I am on hiatus. The company news we got has thrown everything up in the air, and it feels very like it did when I first joined here, kinda exciting, infuriating and scary at the same time. Admittedly there are slightly scary undertones, but I’ve been there before, and at least this time I won’t get made redundant, no way am I starting off down that spiral again. Also managed to, unadvertantly, play some office politics. Now I hate these, stupid games, people making sure they are in first with their version/take on things, etc etc, but I did manage to pull an Ace from my sleeve when I thought it was the …

Dublin

What a top weekend. So much to say that I can’t, so much I saw that I shouldn’t have, so much I did that… ahem anyway… Dublin was a really nice city, very relaxed laidback kinda attitude, like they’re not trying to be cool or anything, it’s just the way they are, and if you don’t like it, well you know where the road out of town is (but make sure you have a pleasant journey). Add in the fact that the company paid to fly me and the rest of the company over and put us up in a hotel (or should that be put up with us in a hotel), and in return only asked for a shortish …
