Crazy week and awards

It's been a funny couple of weeks.  Work wise it's been a nightmare.  I won't go into detail but things are going on that are putting me to the test and stressing me out no end.  I was pretty fed up on Thursday and actually contemplated quitting.  Friday was another day though and after a heart to heart with my manager I am feeling a lot better. I don't know how long this will last though but I can only hope things get better.
At home things are going well.  I'm trying not to nag my boyfriend out of our first home together and he (I am assured) is not leaving wet towels on the floor on purpose.  I still only have limited internet until (fingers crossed) the end of this month.  This dongle I have been leant is a life saver but unfortunately pages load at a snails pace and my impatience kicks in pretty quickly. 
We have a holiday booked so there is something to look forward to and I have already started packing the sun lotions (not going away until the end of March)!

Writing wise it is going well.  I owe it all to Amanda for setting up Womag 2 Weekly because without that I probably wouldn't do any.  I am working on a story with a genre I have never tried before or thought I would enjoy so much.  Who knew!

Also, to round the week off nicely I won 2 awards.  This one from the wonderful DJ Kirkby:

And this one from the lovely Colette:

  This one I have to pass on so I pass this to all on my blog roll cuz i think you all have lovely blogs!


  1. Congratulations on the lovely awards, well deserved.

    Your week does sound stressful. I can empathize with the work part of it as my week sounds fairly similar. Hope it continues to improve.

    Good luck with the story.

  2. Ooh, a sunny holiday to look forward to - nothing like it!

    Congrats on the award, and good luck with the story :-)

  3. Thanks Debs - hopefully the stress wont continue much longer for both of us.

    Thanks Mandy - I know, how weak am I booking a holiday only 2 weeks into the year. Its gotta be done though. Cant see me getting time off before then so it will be well deserved.

  4. Congratulations on your awards. I know what it feels like to have pressure in the work place. In the end I left. However, if it can be worked out, that's good!

  5. Urk, I have days like this too. hang in there until you find a job you think you'll like more. Writing wise I am slacking at the moment. I should be writing and I should be subbing but I'm not.

  6. Style Mansion - thank you and thanks for visiting! It all seems to be working itself out but I'm giving it 6 months tops.

    DJ - I'm keeping my eyes and ears open. Think it will be time to move on soon. I've been there 5 years this year.
