Ted Ich freue mich darauf means I look forward
Ted,Haben ich sagte Ihnen, dass Sie uber eine erstaunliche Weise der bezaubernden Vogel von den Baumen!!!
Thank for your honesty about having a career,I really respect that. I think we all would like to be that in an ideal world. Clever people like you get bored really easily,I can understand that. I am not shocked by what you say at all. Its good that you got your degree,trained in social work,and journalism,thats really great
I've had a lot of little temporary jobs. One was as a clerical worker in a Day Centre for people with Learning Disabilities. I have Learning Disabilities myself but nowhere on the scale of Day Centre Users, I felt right at home in this environment,but the truth was that the management were a bit jealous that I understood their needs so well, and didn't like it every time I left the office to go in the Main Room and talk to them
They said my work was suffering
It was like they didn't want me to care which I understood to be one of the reasons why they gave me the job, because I do care. I had to do a very difficult job with little support, and be the eyes, ears and voice of the Service Users very often. I used to see Users have epileptic fits,have fights,assault other staff,etc. Then I hurt my back there and had to leave because they wouldn't let me take reduced hours
At this point I was so traumatised by this experience that I had to take a break from work,I had a nervous breakdown
I have also done casual work in the fields of Regeneration, Sport and Leisure, and Electoral Registration for a local council. (All of which I enjoyed a lot).
Thats why I am now studying and volunteering. When I am ready for paid work again,I will get support to do so. I'm doing a 3 year Law Course, which is Home study based(for 1st year anyway). I also volunteer in a Citizens Advice Bureaux 2 days a week. I am receiving training to help advise people in matters of housing,debt,benefits,welfare rights amongst many other things. I am finding I really enjoy the work,though its quite sad to see so many people with social/economic problems in a supposed rich country like mine.
Its the best part of my life right now. I'm not in a rush for this to end
Now I have learnt the value of being happy in a job, and not in it for the money. As long as I can get by financially I am quite happy. Everyone has their own needs in life for money, career etc, and I respect that.
Enough of the serious stuff. I feel great today,its Friday,the sun is shining, my silly cold is getting better
Fridays are my day to do with as I please. Craig is finishing work at lunch time and I'll pick him up and I think we'll go for a lovely walk
Rose,Hows the lovely Alex? I'm thinking of Wilby too
I hope all your other cats are fine, and I am sure Wilby will be OK when he has that anaesthetic,be strong sweetie,I'm thinking of you too
Anyway,I'm going to have a nice leisurely breakfast now. I must be the only one who confesses to loving marmite on a piece of toast
Have fun all
