Don’t fix it, or upgrade to Windows 10 from Windows 7 unless you want to spend some time untangling things.
Of course it could have just been me and my computer but it has been a weekend of password changes, moving things around and finding new programs to replace old ones that simply wont work anymore.
Still a good distraction from the mind fuck that was last week at work where I had stupidly volunteered to introduce our newest staff member to the quirks of the job she beat me to.
After the huge rave that boss had given her, I thought it would be, here is your desk, the loo is that way and you find the postpack there but of course nothing is ever that simple.
Despite all her amazing qualifications, and varied experience across different areas of the company, actual experience in the way a business hub works was virtually non-existent and I found myself teaching her to do things that I have been doing for years. Yep, the superwoman, despite being a really nice person, beat me to the job with less experience and skills in actually doing the job she has been hired for.
And yes, it rankled just a little bit.
By the end of the week, I was struggling. There was a melt down, with tears. Not directed at her. I like her.
Directed by my frustration at the whole system and management.
As I said, the whole situation was a complete mind fuck and left me drained.
Tomorrow however is another day and she should be fine now without my direction.
Enough about work.
You come here for the art.
Also possibly my best work so far if you believe what my teacher says.
I know it got a friend excited and so I am painting another chicken painting. I started class feeling a little tentative with what I had done the week before. Not loving it, but reasonably confident I could pull it together.
Thankfully by the end of class, it was looking better.
I reckon I might even have it finished by the end of next class.
The countdown of days has reached double digits now, with around 80 days left before our trip.
I have found myself some lovely walking shoes. We have had our photos taken ready for getting an international drivers permit and my browser history is full of searches about NYC and Texas.
I haven’t looked too much at some of the tourist stuff we might encounter on our road trip to Vegas part of the holiday.
I’m leaving that challenge up to our awesome local tour guide. I have heard she is the queen of list makers.
The weather is still atrocious. i am starting to wonder if it will ever start to warm up. We had needed rain this weekend at least. The weeds in the garden are loving it.
So that’s whats been happening in my life. It’s now Sunday night, the shoes are off and the feet are up.
Hoping you are all having an awesome weekend.
