Ok, had no time to update for a day or two, but got a few seconds for a quick catch-up now, so here goes....
A corner has been turned! Carlos has finally got the go ahead, and starts at the new company next week - Hallelujah!!
Had a fantastic night on Wednesday - I arranged a Pimms and Swing eve at work and it was a roaring success - picked up a few brownie points there, even if I couldn't move yesterday...
I've had an idea for something I want to do, and I'm quite excited about it - more on that on Monday (!!)
Planning a serious turf out in here - I can't move, can't scrap and it's time to weed out some junk and make some room. I'll probably take a lot of it into work again as they love playing with my castoffs :-)
Had a ghastly experience on the way home yesterday... Police everywhere, and crowds gathering... I was stuck in a traffic jam caused by all this, and by following everyones gaze I soon saw what it was all about....turns out a woman was on the roof of the multi storey threatening to jump! Heavens! All I could think was "Please God! Don't let her fall(jump)!! But if she does, then PLEASE don't let it be while I'm sitting here...." I swear I'm not callous or heartless - I obviously didn't want anything to happen to her anytime - but especially not while I was right there!
She didn't look old, not badly dressed, but she did seem very very agitated, throwing her arms around and shouting, and I was petrified she'd fall... or worse.
I really hope whatever caused her to be in such a desperate state can be resolved. I have no idea if it was drugs, drink or depression... but having lost two dear friends in my lifetime to suicide, I know it does happen - just like that. I clearly remember the pain and bewilderment that is left behind afterwards...even though it is many years ago for me now. I am praying someone can give her the help she obviously needs, and show her a little light and love before it's too late.
AND THE DOWNRIGHT UGLY...
Once again, in my circle there is disquiet... hurt feelings, side taking, unhappiness. Someone said this... someone else said that...
I know people can't get on all the time, but some folks do seem to thrive on a drama.
Me? I just want to pursue my hobby, scrap a little, preserve some memories and have fun doing what I love.
The sad thing is - there is room for us all. Life is not a competition.
(Oh, watch me get burned for that!)
