On my return to work last Monday, I was greeted with the news that we are to get yet another change of manager. Our manager was replaced recently as the team dynamics were so bad, this was particulary saddening as he was such a genuinely good man, add the fact that he is one of the few managers with real empathy and years of experience of working as a mental health nurse on wards it is sad to see him treated like this.
One or two people within the team are the source of the problem and his replacement having a different approach has managed to stem the flow and change attitudes for the time being, however having had past experience with the manager who is to come soon and one of the sources of the problem now...its definitely time for me to go. I have a meeting next Thursday when hopefully a transfer of service can be arranged and I feel a lot more positive.
Back home, the kitten has been to the vet for its first inspection...she is definitely a she, however as the vet was examining her she let out a Oh!!Gosh!! It appears not only did I inherit a one eyed dog, I have now got a six clawed kitten.
I had thought her paws were rather large when I first saw her and thought she was just going to be a big cat when she grows...but no I have a cat with an extra claw on each of it rear paws and two extra claws on each of its front paws...they look weirdly human as if she has a thumb almost like holding a babies hand, she did give a long name for this but Ive forgotten it...doh!!!
This means when she suddenly pounces on me and climbs up my trouser leg I get scratched for all those extra claws she is furnished with....I mean just how unfair can life get...:)
The dog looks on in sheer disdain at all her antics but does occassionaly try and play with kitty....shes just not sure of how the game goes and kitty definitely comes out top cat each time...In fact at times the dog looks positively depressed by this sudden explosive influence on house and home.
I also have the opportunity of a break in Manhatten in the fall...God doesnt that sound romantic!!!!..My daughter works for a film company in London and staff can have the FREE use of the company apartment in Manhatten if they wish. My daughter will be working in Los Angeles at the end of October and has booked the apartment..so just got to save for the flight..got the time off work...so whooopeee!!! something to look forward to and break the drag of a wait until court.
Having said that watching the footage of the protests in Burma just now, which are so saddening and worrying it really puts a different perspective on my personal and work circumstances which are nothing in comparison
