Good v Bad
What a treat - I have three whole days ahead of me, with no work getting in the way of any of them. Although I was given some good advice from a colleague yesterday: If you are feeling cheesed off with your current situation, write down five good things that happened to you each day. That could be a stretch. Let's see, yesterday's...
Daisies have mysteriously popped up across the Common. I initially tutted at the sight of them, presuming they were bits of polystyrene that had blown out of a skip. Reminder: must try out contact lenses.
Had lunch with co-worker/mentor at posh Kensington restaurant. Restaurant has flamingos in the garden and fish in the toilets. Did not have to pay.
Pointed out a potentially embarrassing error and was told by a frosty boss, some would say my biggest critic: 'Good spot'. I beam, quietly.
And to even things out, yesterday's...
Receive letter from job in the north telling me I did not get job in north. And despite eight-hour round-trip and £70 spent on trains: 'there were too many applicants to give individual feedback'. How rude!
Shuffling about due to post-jog leg ache.
Have large spot on chin. Could this be spot boss was talking about?
