I'm getting really antsy about this whole family weekend thing that I have coming up.( really boring whinge about dull family stuff )
Anyway. I bought a kettle today - because G and I are too anti social to go into the staff area and loiter for the huge boiler thing to, erm, boil every time we want a drink. This is probably quite shameful, but whilst I am perfectly capable of having chirpy small talk with people I dislike, I choose to avoid it where possible. (We do
like a great many people with whom I work, just not th ones with whom we share(d) a kettle!)
I am filling in my passport application in stages. I have become more and more travel phobic over the last couple of years. My passport has expired and I need to renew it - but have found it a quite impossible process. I have to do it in stages, then when I feel too sick, leave it to come back to another day! This is quite sad really. At the moment tho, I can say no to holiday suggestions because 'I don't have a passport' - there's no shame or room for persuasion. No matter how much I am nagged or guilted, I can't go. the minute I get it renewed it comes down to me and my travel phobia getting in the way, people judging and me feeling compelled. I don't want to go on holiday by mistake...
ooh, compliment - we have to get all our court reports 'gate kept' - to double check for errors and make sure not discriminatory etc. A colleague 'marked' mine today, expressed pleasure that I'd taught him a new word (truncated!?) and said that he'd 'been told you wrote good reports, so I'd been looking forward to reading one' :-)
