I've avoided talking about work cos it's all bloody miserable and going wrong right now.
The day before I was due back into the office after my hols, I got a text from my workmate JH:
"Listen, loads has happened whilst you've been away and some of it you'll need to know before you even get to your desk. Shall we meet for breakfast and you can tell me about your jollies at the same time? Don't panic though! We all still have jobs!"
I didn't panic but I feared the worst and because of this, the news wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, although it still is pretty dire.
In my absence, we (myself, JH and AR) have been seconded for the next month and a half to another department in a last ditch attempt to help the company reach its year end targets. It's seriously getting desperate. We're however like the cavalry that are arriving a little too late and are there just to minimise the damage that's already been done.
So what happens to my existing job? I've got to cover that too, although with the current climate, it's a little quieter than usual, but nevertheless, there's still a stack of stuff in my inbox.
I'm so glad that there are distractions outside of work so I can think about other stuff otherwise I'd seriously lose the will to live.
Still no news on my gym membership, I think I can blag one more month before they stop letting me in. I hope something gets sorted soon.
