I could spout on about how it's down to things at work at the moment, but I'm sure you don't wanna be bogged down by any of that. But the fact remains that it has been a very hectic start of week. Caused mostly by being the start of the new financial quarter, by having staff who don't seem to realise how what they do affects the rest of the business, and by the fact that I only got back from work 10 minutes ago!! <g>
Anyway, I hereby declare that I will endeavour to update my journal on a more regular basis including during the day at work (but only if there's no danger of me getting caught for using the net for personal reasons during working hours!!!) :-)
It occurred to me the other day, that I don't communicate enough. Not with people that I'm near to on a daily basis, but with those who are close to my heart but further away geographically. It was pointed out to me that there is a certain person very close to my heart that I hadn't emailed for approx 2 weeks, even though this person emailed me at least once a day. I just wanted to apologise to that person... she knows how much she means to me. I do this a lot though... I cut myself off from people - not intentionally, of course, but it just kinda happens that way. Maybe I'm just lazy. If my mother is reading this, she'll probably be nodding her head rather fervently right now! <g> In fact *any* member of my family!!! LOL
I do try and keep contact with the people that mean the most to me...but I really screwed up when I found out my Nan (father's mother) was dying. I didn't find the time to go and see her, and she died without me saying goodbye. I didn't make the mistake a second time though. My stepgrandfather (father's stepfather) was dying, but I did force myself to make the time... and I was one of the last people to see him before he died. I really felt honoured that I was given the opportunity to see him before he left us.
I have a very good friend in Kent who I spend a good amount of time on the phone to, but only when either of us needs to talk to the other. I have two very good friends in Hertfordshire (although one is moving back to Yorkshire soon) who I only really speak to on ICQ. I have a fiance in Yorkshire who I used to spend *hours* on the phone to.
These are some of the people that I CARE about!! I really need to sort my life out.
Anyway, enough of these ramblings. I think they're for my own benefit rather than anyone elses, so bear with me :-)
Laters and *hugs* to those that want them.
