Another day in the life...

If you missed me here yesterday, that was because I was off-site for a follow-up training on employment law: fascinating stuff and no, I am being serious. I always enjoy sinking my teeth into a hypothetical or not so hypothetical case and showing all of my fellow trainees how clever I am.

Off-sites...I'll never understand why they always have to have them in remote locations, among fields and forests, and then make them go on for far too long for me to have time to go exploring and enjoy these places.

But as is usual on these trips, I hung around for the socialising too long, drank too much since the boss was paying anyway, and didn't come home until way past midnight (and how come there can be tailbacks on the motorway after 11 p.m.? -- and no, don't worry, I wasn't the designated driver!)

I could hardly rouse myself from bed this morning...then remembered I wanted to see my dentist. Lovely man. He put my jaw full of novocain and made my face feel funny all day, but it's started to wear off and it's being replaced with a mother of a headache. Think I'll give yoga a miss tonight, 'cause I just can't stop yawning!

So you can't escape.

...but I like these places!

Yeah, but that's to lure you into a false sense of security.

All it does is lure me into a state of petulance: lemme out! lemme out! It leads to me trying to cut to the chase by playing devil's advocate, and kerfuffles ensue...all because I can't bear to be cooped up in a conference centre when there's an outside to explore.

When they are especially mean, they sit you next to a window.

I feel like that a lot at work, I look out of the window at the traffic and think 'there people are free!'. Gits.

Worst thing is, I actually got to choose where I wanted to sit. Two lovely windows offering a view of the motorway and the fields beyond. Git.

One way to torment yourself, I suppose.

Still, I don't think I'd ever give up my windowseat without a fight...

I use to work almost exclusively in employment law. It was an odd field here - lots of unfair dismissals, which mean people who deserved to be fired suing people I wouldn't want to work for anyway.

A dentist who you want to see would be an incredible thing!

Ah, but I had a toothache. That made my dentist my bestest, most favourite person in the world for all of 5 minutes yesterday...Actuallyu, I've never had a problem with dentists, doctors and/or surgeons. They're there to help, and though they're methods may not always be pleasant, their results are what counts in my opinion.

As to the course, it was really good. We're facing major upheaval within the company: big reorgs, workforce reductions, changes in pension schemes and renumerations, pay-for-performance; as well as the run o' the mill health and safety stuff...and that's just the tip of the iceberg, so devoting a day to taking stock of the situation and devising possible strategies was just what was needed to get us focussed and sharp for the battles ahead.
