2012 so far
I slid quietly into 2012 with optimism and hope for the coming year. I dont necessarily think that there is a whole new start on 1st January each year. It is a good time to sort of reflect on all that has happened and all that is to come.
Last year was brilliant in some respects and very trying in others.
Good things include the new job and The Man
Bad things include the lack of money and the trials of parenthood.
The new job is very trying sometimes. I am coming to the conclusion that some people just should not be allowed to work in a place where they have to be part of a team. There are people out there - and this is a shock to me - that really don't care about their colleagues or the people that they are supposed to be providing a service for. They are self interested, self obsessed and self promoting. And they do not fit into a work environment where people need to look after each other.
No matter how hard work is, the hardest thing is trying to 'contain' people who would disrupt the whole day and who make their colleagues lives so much more difficult. It is at times like this when I am not so sure about the whole idea of workers rights. Should 'rights' always protect the rights of the individual regardless of the impact that they have on the rest of us!
That is my rant over!!
The Man is the love of my life!
Money is tight. It's a tough time to be needing money - all the costs are going up and the incomes seems to be going down. It is harder to accept austerity when you know that the people who made the bigges mistakes and the people who gained the most are also the people who will suffer least.
This economic down turn is turning me into a bit of a radical!
