Mmm I'm gonna join Moo and the cat in a nap, mima I'll bring virtual you along with me - you'll still be stuck at work but at least virtual you can catch up on some zzz's
thank you SOLB
I've never felt so low and worthless and singled out before. I'm not sure I want to work here anymore.
Wanna talk about it Mima?
SOLB you have made me smile for the 1st time today.
I have been organising training for DPA compliance. I sourced the quote, booked it all, arranged the dates, the rooms, the invoicing. I have to attend it as part of my job...but the overlord of my dept (Voldemort) has got four of his "team" on the training after I mentioned it was happening and conveniently there is no money in the budget for me to travel down to do my audit, to complete the training. This only happened after Voldemort learnt of the training. He doesn't like me anyway (I can't be bullied or seduced by him so he is just nasty) and I'll be the only one on the audit team not be included in the training.
Thank you! I've never felt singled out until now...this all just seems way too personal for my liking. Can there be lots of cake eating please? I'm starving! Might have to raid ASDA on my way home for either cake ingredients or ready made cake.
I think I love you SOLB...can there be tea as well...and maybe a very quiet dark room that I can have a very long sleep in?
I didn't want to use the B word by'eck but the more I think about it, it does seem slightly that way. I hate the thought of being seen as a "victim" - I was bullied at school (all girls schools = nightmare) and I always thought I was stronger. But it would seem not. I have just managed (in the last hour) to stop crying...I'm tired so its not helping but this isn't me usually.
Those brownies sound amazing...as do the meringues and strawberries. Trying to resist the naughty sweet stuff but that is all I am craving!
Chocolate brownies make everything better, science fact!
Sorry to hear about your problems at work Mima, being left out like that is horrible. I don't think you're a victim though. If I got punched, I'd be someone who got punched. Calling me a victim ignores the part where I press charges and they get convicted. It also ignores that in almost every other moment of my life I'm not a victim and that I've got plenty of things about me that make me strong. And I'm sure you have too Mima.
Thank you Ben-o. I'm ok really. I have inhaled my body weight in crap food tonight (salami, duck spring rolls x4), I've made brownies (out of a box but still...) that are only just out the over. And I'm about to eat said brownies with ice cream. And to hell with the calories.
I love what you said about not being a victim Ben-o - very wise. Mima really sorry you're having such a difficult time at work, it's horrible that anyone should have made you feel like that. Hope the tears have stayed away darling, we're always here if you need to let off some steam. I'm very good at plotting revenge or trading insults if you'd like to let me know a little more about Voldewart! Calories don't count when you're having a bad day, Gym was kinda great and kinda not. The first 10 minutes were really hard on the breathing and I nearly gave up but then it magically settled I hate the gym though - it's on the site of a school so there are loads of kids milling about and the reception is really busy. The gym itself has the opposite problem it's tiny (there are only two floor mats for everyone to stretch & do ab work etc on) it's really claustrophobic so I felt really difficult either way. I'm usually pretty resilient but it was just a bit too much. It's the cheapest, nearest option but I don't think it works for me. Will have to find somewhere else, overall I am just thrilled that the breathing settled. Off to the docs tomorrow, hopefully will get the bloods results. I really feel like I'm physically on the right road now. Can't wait to be feeling better again so I can tackle the crazy stuff and really get back on top of things. I have been having a love in with the spotty one tonight, he's the cuddliest dog I've ever met - love him. OK bed time Night everyone x
Todayw as carp I agree
What happened tonight? Can we help build you back up again?
I love the idea of eating chocolate cereal for tea ... I am craving a sugar fix but I've got nowt in and I'm too lazy to trek to the shop. Am contemplating porridge with strawberries for a midnight snack .. rock and roll baby!
I'm going with the tomorrow is another day and another start approach too. I will probably not be mucky, bounced on or lose any hair but I won't be rewarded with hugs and sloppy kisses either Hope tomorrow really is better, it's horrid not being able to help - will just have to quietly care about how you are instead xxxx
You are right by 'eck, hopefully it's just the interim period and I'm only feeling so frustrated because I am nearly well enough to be doing the things I feel like I should. Are you feeling better darling?
No nice things AND the iron just bit me! I do have some very lovely friends though - the postman brought me three 'just because' presents today, what absolutely impeccable timing!
The mouse book is from a forumite called mouse, we hang out on the Mundane thread where everyone likes cheese the snail was knitted for me by another forumite who is having a tough time herself and still took the time to do something nice for me and the book is from yet another forumite who is so lovely she's sent me quite a few books now - she also printed my favourite mug ... I don't believe anyone that says forum friends are not real friends!! We all just care about each other so much. I love that you and Moo have been busy baking, hope that you are both covered in chocolate What did you spot in the street? It makes me smile whenever you refer to Moo my twin sisters youngest is nicknamed Moo too Aww so sorry about your friend, hope everything comes out right in the end. I'm still feeling exhausted all the time, I don't think I'm doing enough to help myself. The OCD makes eating a varied diet difficult but I think I need to have another go at pushing the boundaries a bit - I desperately want to be back on my feet, I have to face a few challenges if I am going to get there. Saw the asthma nurse today, she gave me a plan to try to do some running (well walking at first but it's a plan) so that's greatI really wanted to say something supportive or helpful but I just can't think of anything to make you smile - hope hubby, the sprogletts or the cat have managed it a few times today Lots of love x
