Sick again today

Well, I say again, but it was at least five weeks ago that I last had any time off. And this one is quite different today, mostly just the headache/temperature/coughing thing. Half the time, I think I stay home from work on this because I want to avoid the hour and a half commute… ha ...

Can you hear me?

Another hospital trip today, this time mainly for Alex. A hearing test… to put it bluntly we’re quite sure heĀ  has some hearing problems, we’re just not sure how much. It would explain a lot, like his speech, and his understanding of things, and the way he reacts, or doesn’t react, to us in so ...

Friday on my mind

Currently in a work sense, I’m really not doing Fridays very well… Day’s too long, work is too overdone, and not enough gets done anyway. Work-wise, it’s all crazy… I’d rather be doing the new things, but the old things just take up all the time. And lunchtime is party time on Fridays, which is ...

Productivity

This is what I call productivity: On the train, to and from work, I wrote 2100 words of my new fiction project. About 1100 in the morning, and another thousand on the way home. Quite happy with that. Making good progress on this new thing… Then… at work, I was able to spend nearly the ...

Back on the job

Well I don’t get a massive say in it right now, so it’s best to be positive. Holiday over, back on the day job tomorrow. We got back from Nelson Bay last night, so there was one more day off, and we had a “lovely” 40 degree day out here today (that’s celcius people!) Spent ...

Light at the end of the tunnel

It’s almost all done now. The moving house that is. This week, after going all out through to late Monday night, I’ve instead been dropping by a few times each night, picking up more, or cleaning up more. Now there’s only a very tiny amount of loose stuff left in the house, the garage is ...

Back to work but feeling nothing

Back at work today (despite the not-quite-finished moving status), and feeling pretty crap. Quiet day, everyone else is on deadline here, leaving me to struggle with the same old shit that I always have to deal with, with the same ridiculous problems that have no chance of being solved, it would appear. I am really ...

Feeling crushed under the weight of…

Well, lots of things, really. Just so tired right now… work is ridiculous and must be stopped, or at least changed, and the house moving just seems ominous. There’s too many things to pay, too much left to do, and none of it seems like I can do enough. Um, enough of that. Sleep is ...

And that was the week…

It feels odd that I haven’t done a full 40-hour week for a long time, it seems. Certainly not more than a few in the last two months, with all the illness, kids in hospital and now moving insanity. Had 1.5 days off this week, for kid’s doctors and house hunting, but with house hunting ...

Grrrrrrr…..

Spent most of the late night at home going through hair-brained questions passed on to me that originate from someone thoroughly repellant related to work. They were answered, and spoke clearly to my immense frustrations at aspects of the place, but it doesn’t leave me with much hope for it really. I mean, if this ...
