The first week back after the holiday wasn’t so bad. At least I didn’t have back to back meetings, which makes a different. It’s funny, meetings. When I first started work, I wanted to be involved and found it frustrating that meetings would come and go, without any involvement. Now, I seem to be struggling to find gaps, in which to do the work I’m being asked about.
Okay, I jest, but not by much. 🙂 I don’t mind meeting up, although I do like a purpose for it. Ideally, there should be a short gap between the last one – hello, comfort break and the all important cup of tea? 🙂 Equally, having some agreed actions at the end, isn’t a bad idea.
Thing is, in the gap of someone to drive these, I often find myself asking what the actions are and then emailing everyone. Otherwise, we just drift through the working week and get very little done. Thing is, this isn’t specific to where I work, it seems to be the new way of, well, not working 😉
For whatever reason, I suspect either the hamster is tired of running in it’s wheel, the Nottingham Chameleons forum is currently offline. I’ve had nothing back from the hosting company, but as it’s free, it would be a bit rude to get all huffy about it. 🙂
So, I’ve set up a new temporary home as a stopgap measure. Maybe it’s time to spend some of the group’s funds on a hosted web site? Part of me would like the challenge, but it’s a) money and b) more to faff with. Still, it might look more professional.
A few months ago T Central asked about some guest posts, so, I put paws to plastic and hammered out a few articles to help. The post about Chams has already gone up, and there’s one more in the pipeline for publishing. When that’ll arrive, I’m not sure, but hopefully it’ll be useful.
I’ve also been in touch with an author, a lady who wrote A Love Less Ordinary, if you remember that. If not, do check out Amazon, it’s certainly worth a read. I’ve got a few notes to polish up on that, and then that can go into the publishing queue, as well. Larks, I should have been a journo 😉
Shopping & Wanting
It’s been a little too long between ‘Lynn mode’ occasions for my liking. I wouldn’t say it’s getting me down, indeed, my mood seems unaffected. What has seemed to happen is I’ve spent more time looking at things to buy, which I probably don’t need.
In fact, I’ve bought some new wedges and some summer trousers. The latter are going to have to go back, as they not so much ‘graze my ankles’ as shoot up my calves when I sit down. Flattering, no, not really. But, on the upside, I found my old white cotton, wide legged trousers still fit, which is good news. Pennies saved eh?
I am beginning to feel…. not so much the pressure, but a want to be out and about. It’s funny because to use the word urge or need, suggests, at least to me, some type of desire… and that word has connotations all of its own. 😉 No, it’s not that far removed from wanting some chocolate, when you’re on a diet, or wanting to go out, when you’ve been stuck in because of the weather. So, yeah, there’s an itch, so to speak, but how best to scratch it? Therein, lies the rub.
Still, a week or so to go until the next meeting and maybe TrendCo will bring a surprise, in the wig department. Fingers crossed eh?
