So drained

I feel so disapointed. I was working towards getting my blog post count up and having a continual audience but some life things got in the way. No more was I in the world of Austen filled with old fashioned values and romance (is it considered old fashioned if it were written at the time?) but one of company restructure and job cuts.

Fortunately, my job isn’t under the axe but many people have had their hours cut back or been advised of redundancy in the short term. That being said, I’m fairly certain I don’t want to work for a business that treats their employees like overheads rather than people. I don’t want to sit around and see everyone forced to leave.

So what does someone do when their boss gives them a polished speech about career progression and opportunity when the outlook is bleak for everyone else?

Good question.

Instead of thinking of it just now I’m going to relax this weekend (as last weekend was filled with insecurity and fear) knowing that it isn’t my only option and I can choose what I do.

Luckily, I picked up the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice from the library today so I think that is a good start.

And then going comment and forum crazy… I have been lacking and it makes me sad.

Joys of Technology

We all know that technology is a wonder. I know I lived in a time before Mobiles, internet and even mp3s but I wonder how I would survive without it now. Especially the internet, I shudder to think.

As with the joys comes the lows of technology. Ever email or text someone and get that second where you think you might have sent it to just the wrong person? That the person you were whining or complaining about just got something very interesting in their inbox. What do you do? What can you do? Hyperventilate and pretend it was all a joke? Sounds like a plan ๐Ÿ™‚

Have you ever been the recipient of one of these circumstances? Ever received an email and thought “Huh, really don’t think this was meant for me”? What did you do? Did you let the person know about their mistake, or let them live in ignorance?
On Friday afternoon a colleague forgot to add me to an important email, they quickly rectified their mistake and sent me a copy… however they sent me a copy that had a few responses to the original email. Oh my, did I learn a thing or two. Things definitely not for my eyes.
What have I done? Well, I’m going full steam ahead giving them the impression I never received it. I think we’re all better off.
