It’s another quiet day at the office with three personnel away today with sickness. I wasn’t in yesterday either because of the early stages of my cold – I spent most of the day sleeping and tinkering with my new blog settings while I was awake. The new improved blog will be released to the general public on Friday, 12 September 2008 – at the moment it’s ‘alive’ in the testing environment to ensure that it looks alright and functions smoothly. It’s not a massive change, just a change in the look-and-feel with some additional functions as well. I’m still not feeling 100% today, but I have a report to finish by Friday and I had a meeting this morning that I couldn’t postpone any longer.
I only have about sixteen more days until I leave the company and face the world again. I’m looking forward to it, even though I must admit that I still have some trepidation about my decision. I told my boss on Monday that it was time for me to go, rather than spending all of the positive energy after my holiday in an atmosphere of uncertainty. The glow from my long holiday is slowly diminishing, even though I still feel much more positive than I did prior to my five-week break.
I’m sure that it will all work out at the end. It’s in challenges like this that your faith gets tested, eh? It’s frightening and yet very empowering and exciting at the same time!
