Hi guys. Sorry I am not posting currently. To be honest, I am not feeling the blogging vibe this week. Instead, I am feeling stressed, and teary, and exhausted. My mind is racing along manically at 10 thousand to the dozen, and it is overpowering me a little bit to say the least.
Why am I feeling like this? Work is being restructured at the moment. Don’t worry, my little position organising UK marketing is safe, but I sit at my desk every day and here about other people going. My boss is not around at the moment either, meaning that I am now managing all marketing activity for the entire country, all from a small single desk with a very slow computer.
I am stressed. This is interesting, as normally I don’t get stressed easily. Don’t get me wrong – I am very fond of whining (practically a profession, that is how good I am at that!), and I am not adverse to an occasional wild sob-fest. Stress, however, is generally something I save for very special occasions. At the moment, however, I have nowhere to unwind. I am wildly busy at work, and then I come home to a house that we have to tidy, and clean, and organise. Relaxing in an environment where the floor is covered with random piles and the air is dusty is a difficult thing indeed.
And so, to that end, I am not putting blogging first. I am putting me, for a rare occasion, at the forefront and giving myself time to unwind without responsibilities. For this week, I am for me and me alone!
