I can’t take credit for the line , its courtesy of the Mamas and the Papas song Monday Monday :
Every other day, every other day,
Every other day of the week is fine, yeah
But whenever Monday comes, but whenever Monday comes
You can find me cryin’ all of the time
But that’s pretty much how most Mondays make me feel! I can’t make up my mind if I feel that way about Mondays because I’m tired of working, I hate my job or I’m simply tired. All I know is I never used to feel this way . I speed through the week wishing my time away until its 5 pm on Friday afternoons and I can switch off the lap top, turn off the work phone and pretend work doesn’t exist until 8 am on a Monday.
The drawback with ‘speed living’ is that I’m getting older way faster than I like . So I really need to be stopping and smelling the roses during the working week.
One of the benefits of working 99% of the time from home is no one actually knows what I’m doing. As long as I reply to the odd email, and I’m on Lync and Skype – as in visibly online —I can pretty much fill my days as I choose.
So I have a new plan…. which I’m almost positive my employers wouldn’t appreciate but I’m working on the principle that if they EVER engaged with me , they’d realise this role that they dumped me into unceremoniously without any discussion doesn’t make the most of my 30 years experience or my skill set – so quite frankly – ITS YOUR OWN FAULT WORK!
This is how things are going to pan out from here on in…. get up , make coffee, play on Facebook till 9am !
11am-12 – crafts
12- 1pm Lunch
2pm – 3pm – housework
3pm -4pm afternoon snooze
4pm -5pm work
Damn that looks like the way to go !!!
Do I feel bad about cheating my employers? No… not really because if there was work, if I felt valued, if anyone gave a damn then I’d be doing my usual 60 hour week !!
AND there will be days I DO have to work – like tomorrow when I’ll leave home at 8 am and wont be home till around 8 pm….
Its swings and roundabouts !
