Good thing I'm working in my office tomorrow. Did I mention we're not really set up to work remotely? Grrr. At least I was able to read message from Asst. Manager that she reviewed my recent project and it looked great. That was nice to hear, she doesn't compliment much.

      @maryrobinson40 - it’s nice to see you. I don’t know how you can fast for 36 hours. Good for you.

      @kuhl50 - you’re doing great. 2013 would put me where I am now. I think I want to be in 1997.😂

      @littleblackskirt - financial worries seems to be my biggest issue constantly. I don’t know how to ever get it solved and I’m always trying to do it alone. I hope yours settles soon.

      You're one of the best Sisters a girl like me can have. Thank you for caring so much about all of us. XOXOX

      Good morning everyone, long time no post!

      I have been lurking and reading whilst away, but think it's now time to attempt to get posting again. I haven't been really feeling like making goals and putting pressure on myself during the lock-down as it's been a difficult time and I was quite enjoying giving myself a break for a bit. But I think, with lock-down dragging on (we aren't going back to the office until early July at the very earliest - could be lots later) I need to start making some goals again. But I will keep them simple!

      I'm starting my new job next Monday - or at least I will be if HR ever get the contract sorted out. I'm having to exercise vast amounts of patience at the moment - my interview was the end of April and it STILL isn't all sorted. One of the reasons for the delay was actually a good one - the job I'm moving to was supposed to be a 12-month contract but my current boss kicked up a fuss about that because it meant that he could only recruit a 12-month person to replace me. The result has been that I'm getting a permanent role :) That's a good delay, the delay i'm now waiting for is just HR getting off their a%$ and sorting out the contract. Which really shouldn't be that hard, it just involves changing the name, salary and job title on the standard contract... but hey, everything takes ages in this place. Anyway, it WILL get sorted and I WILL be starting my new job soon! :)

      Anyway, here are some simple goals for today:

      - Stick to pre-logged food
      - Get out for a walk
      - Don't drink more than half a bottle of wine on Zoom call (alcohol consumption has gone up in lock-down - need to be careful on this)
      - Lights off by 11

      😍👏🎈Congratulations on the new job! Awesome on the return to logging.
