Tuesday 15 February 2011: Hard day...
354/365: ... for Maddy Moo. Am I very naughty to blip her as she's weepily unloading at the end of the day? Probably. But I haven't any other shots as I've not been in the mood today for anything much, so this'll do! Plus, it's part of her and our lives and I want to record the bits that make the whole... not just the pretty bits. Mind you, I doubt she noticed. She was in full flow and wasn't paying the slightest bit of attention to me taking a photo of her. She'd come home from school having had 'the *worst* day ever' and spent twenty minutes unloading to the cat and a further 20 unloading to me. The essence of the hideousness of school? She'd had to *gulps for breath* play a new game *sniffles dramatically* in the gym and she didn't like it *weeps more*.
Poor old Moo. She really isn't good with change. Eventually, she'll get it and be okay. I remember her not being okay with a game they call 'treasure island' in her class which is something to do with drawing circles on the floor in chalk and jumping across the islands to make sums - you have to see it to get it. Anyway, she hated that too at first. And then this morning I saw that she'd chalked it out on the floor in Nick's studio to play at home. Go figure.
What else? Work - well, that was alright as far as it went. Did a workshop which was quite enjoyable and seemed to go okay. But then learned that the person who I was told would look after my projects whilst I took some time off cancelled all of them with curt emails yesterday afternoon... before I'd even started my time off! I kind of wonder what the point of me going back before I finish in March might be? All the stuff I've spent months working on, building relationships, working out complex issues, trying to make it as productive as possible...cancelled. By email. Jeez.
Am supposed to have a meeting with HR tomorrow but question the point of it since my job has effectively been dismantled before I've even left.
PS What a miserable blip from me. Sorry!
PPS Am giving myself a 'must try harder' kick so that tomorrow's will be better!
