I was really quite gloomy today.
A sore shoulder (too much computer, again), the surgery does not appear to have worked quite as well as I’d hoped (though am much less near death than I was, which is the main thing) and my beloved kindle developed a death rattle1.
But mostly, I am really feeling the effects of moving floors at the SaltMinesLimited. Everyone on the new floor is so very, very negative (even, I hate to say it, my best pals) and it is all extremely dispiriting. That, combined with AnxiousMum ramping up the crazy (which deserves a special post all its own) does not make for a fun working environment. I dearly miss those enthusiastic GenY lawyers I previously sat amongst. I miss the intelligent conversation with my ex-desk-neighbour.
Usually, I do very much like my job, but the atmosphere is now so awful that by week end, I utterly hate it and SaltMinesLimited. Okay, admittedly, generally I always hate the SaltMinesLimited.
I was very glad to come home today, I’m working on a piece of analysis I adore, for people I like, which makes things infinitely more tolerable.
Also, weekend? De-cluttering garage. Theatre. Food. Vino. Not being at werk! Excellent!
1Amazon support? AMAZING! The best customer service I have ever experienced. They’ve sent out a new kindle, I ship the old one back when I receive it and they’ll refund my postage. This makes me want to buy more things from them. Kindles for everyone!
