On My Desk - At Work

I don't usually work on Wednesdays at The Convent. I did today though so thought a glimpse of my work desk was appropriate.

The flowers were courtesy of my boss. Left over from a festival but she put a vase on everyone's desk. Nice, huh?

I'm really enjoying work at the moment. What I'm mostly loving about it is being part of a team. I haven't felt like part of a team for at least 3 years. I've felt extremely isolated. In some jobs this has been due to being in a role that really isolated me such as a management position. In one of my recent roles it was because I was working with an absolute bunch of cows (and yes I do hope you're reading this and know who you are). It is so nice to be on the same level as everyone and just one of the gang. I feel accepted where I am now and settled.

A couple of months ago I asked myself the question - Will I ever find work that I enjoy in an environment that I like and that pays a wage that I am happy with. It seems the answer is yes. YIPPEE!!!

I'll be back later. I have a fun surprise for you all.

Reading that restores my faith that there are good places to work out there. After the last few goes, I was convinced that the only good place was my own sewing room!

Sounds like a great place to be, and so much easier to get out of bed in the morning, when you have such a nice workplace. Lovely flowers (and desk).

If you believe it, it will come. Ok so Field of Dreams is a movie but we do create a lot of our own reality.

I love that you are in the place you wanted to be and with a salary to match the atmosphere. There is no shortage of money in the universe.

I enjoyed a deep belly laugh whilst reading this post - hopefully those cows do know who they are and bloody well pull their socks up!

Congratulations on finding that perfect job - enjoy it.
