Last time we spoke I had left my job and was not looking for anything new.
I was excited to have time for my blog again. Time to do fun, interesting things that I could then share with all of you.
That lasted 3 months. I was presented with a new job opportunity and it was too good not to pursue. I applied for and got the job.
I now do support for a software company. I work from home. It is wonderful to not have to drive anywhere to work. I get to travel a bit as well to company headquarters.
People don’t fully understand that even though I work from home I don’t just sit around all day watching TV or scanning Facebook. I actually work a full 8 hour day and sometimes longer. I can’t carry on long phone conversations or have people over to visit.
I do try to get dressed every morning though. I have only stayed in my pyjamas once.
But usually I can get laundry done. I can empty the dishwasher or get dinner started. I can water some plants. Little jobs that don’t take long. This goes a long way towards a stress free day. No coming home at the end of the day trying to squeeze in the daily chores.
This company is such a positive, upbeat company. I have never seen anything like it. They have a wonderful business model in place and have won awards for being one of the top companies to work for.
Another huge perk is no driving to work. No traffic. No traffic jams. No giant fuel bills every month. No wear and tear on my car.
Is there a down side? Not for me. I don’t mind the solitude. I like my own company (yes there is a little talking to myself going on), There is great camaraderie among the staff. We have phone contact and chat contact regularly.
So that is what I have been doing.
I will have time and more importantly, energy, to blog again. I have just had a lot on the go over the past 3 months. Training has filled my brain and left little space for anything else but I am now getting back to my old self and will be more active on here for sure.
I have missed you all. Many of you I am in contact with via Facebook and that is always fun. I miss visiting your blogs. I miss your beautiful images and your funny stories.
Are you still blogging? Leave me a note so I can catch up with you.
