Silly Article – Savvy Clown

A response to an article written by Bradley Jolly in ‘The Mirror’. What a fantastic idea to hire a clown as company for a redundancy meeting! Why give employers the satisfaction of believing themselves to be passing on bad news? A redundancy is, after all, an occasion to be celebrated. An opportunity. The chance for…

A difficult day for making any progress with my blog. Mountains of crocks from Friday evening to be dealt with first! Where is my friend, Mrs Hinch, when…

47: Miserable

No, I’m not miserable about the fact that I only have two-and-a-half working weeks left in my job. Get real! In a couple of months, I get my redundancy payment. And, in a couple of years my publications will be on the best-seller lists in Waterstones, WHSmiths, Amazon, Ebay, …………., etc. No, I’m not miserable…

35: Another Work Day

Blah, blah, blah! Jay? Be with you in a couple of seconds! Blah, blah, blah! But, but, but! Jay, Jay, Jay! Be with you … But, but, but …. On and on the voices drone and pester. (Just how much longer can I take?) One moment! But, blah, blah, blah! AAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRGHHHHHH! But, Jay? But, but, blah,…

23: Dancer

Read you (i.e. I read the post Read me? by the author of ‘Waking Up on the Wrong Side of 50′)! Read all the first half, then skimmed the rest, as the thought of some tulips I spotted on the school run is luring me outside. Sitting here on my laptop watching the sunshine fading away is…

15: Why Hinch?

Why on this planet did I  bother with all that hinching over the weekend. I spent hours shifting the congealed layers of grease from my oven and microwave, not to mention all the washing-up, hoovering and mopping. I was rewarded with a flooded kitchen and an angry hubby, after bits if disintegrated Brillo pad somehow…

10: Boss-Free

Another day over. Am I wishing my life away? No, I’m counting down the days until my life starts again. Life minus the boss. Perhaps I shouldn’t knock it; the boss pays, and I can’t say that my inbox is full of demands for my services as a savvy freelance writer. Is it the savvy…

7: Knotted

Why give up a job that pays well? Shouldn’t I be grateful? Stop the whingeing and get on with it? Get on with what? Get on with trying to get to the peak of the mountain, whilst hanging on to the cliff face by old rope? Get on with the knowing that the only way…

3: A Diary

Okay, so I’m still currently in employment, but by being up and blogging at 2.44 am, I am demonstrating my commitment to the cause. Yesterday, I achieved a record number of 198 views on this blog site. Yes, it is true that my target was to reach 200, but I nearly got there! So, don’t knock…
