The end of the working week

I've been feeling singularly uninspired lately; I've been wanting to drabble but the muse has remained silent for the most part -- and in other areas of my life, things aren't going the way I would like them to, either.

On the job front, it looks like the usual summer slump has started early this year -- I haven't seen a single position that I thought might be for me advertised in the last two weeks; and it pisses me off because all through March and April, when I was just idly browsing in order to determine what kind of jobs I would really like to do, there were loads...and now they've all gone, of course. ::sigh::

On the CoRo promotion front, I'm afraid my geographical position's proving to be a definite drawback, making it well-nigh impossible for me to deliver a valuable contribution; and that's getting me down a bit, too.

Furthermore, my ankle continues to give me a headache in that 8 months after sustaining the injury, the joint is still stiff and sore, and swollen. It prevents me from wearing the things I like (skirts and high heels), and makes me feel frumpy and unattractive, despite the fact that I've been losing some weight, and should therefore by rights be feeling over the moon. Also, it doesn't help that I've discovered 3 grey hairs earlier this week, but haven't been able to find the hair dye I've been using for the last year and a half. Apparently, 'Blackberry' isn't that popular a colour in The Netherlands.

And I'm dreading bringing Leila home this weekend. She's been doing very well at my Mum's, has gained weight and is back to her own confident topcat self; but I worry that she may revert back to endangering her health by not eating and being too scared to move a muscle when she comes back to live with Clio, Manasse and myself again.

But, on the plus side, there's another episode of Doctor Who to look forward to tomorrow night, which thought does help to cheer me up a little. Now, if the weather will just co-operate, giving me a chance to make the most of my days off, I will probably even be moderately happy soon.

I hear you I pretty much feel the same at the moment

Ah, it's not just me, then! Strangely enough, that does make me feel a bit less useless. It's just that Jules and Nai seem to have had so much fun at TMBG recently, I felt I wanted to go out there and do something, too!

when the time comes for full blown promotion there is loads you can do from your location :)

I certainly hope so. And I've just started my pimping campaign on the Q message board; maybe something will come of that too in a couple of months. ;-)

you are not at all useless! (and maybe your muse is sleeping on lots of blurb thoughts .. and doesn't know it!) We just got so lucky on the TMBG gig - it was so much so soon I think it was an over-flurry of activity that took us all by surprise - lets hope it's signal for a successful campaign :) When London is catered for and the other venues start clocking up .. Nai and I will also become geographically distant :) .. but then we can all tackle the internet promo in force!

Have you linked up the Q board so we can join you and back you up as time goes on :) *fingers crossed for that*

Have I linked up the Q board? By golly, I haven't! I'll do it in a minute, make myself useful that way ;-)!
