I hope you won’t mind me sharing my shaky little ramble with you all. Somehow to me, there are some thoughts that seem more validated, once they are committed in some way.
That interview I mentioned a while ago, that I thought had gone so well- it turns out it went better than I thought. I was offered and accepted the job yesterday. So instead of being a Senior Library Assistant, I shall be an Enquiry Officer instead. What this means in essence is that I shall be doing a lot more enquiry work, and not be so involved with issuing and circulation the stock.
I feel curiously flat though. Perhaps because the interview process was accompanied by what seemed like a hundred forms, and that I had to produce birth certificates and so on as well?
I am sure that I will perk up again soon and be enthused about it. But just for now, I feel a bit wobbly.
I have also noticed, that several amongst the circle of friends on the internet who I visit, have expressed a need for a little time out while they recuperate a bit. I wonder, if we need to spring clean ourselves? While I swing into action with my pink feather duster for the Brocante Home Seasonal Scrub, I perhaps forget myself a little bit.
So, I declare that the rest of the month of May (and beyond!) shall be dedicated to Seasonal Scrubbing ourselves. Pampering a bit, making sure we get enough vegetables and fruit in our systems, not to feel virtuous or to slim, but because it is good for us, and will make us feel better. Finding some relaxing music to listen to as we go to sleep; buying a little bottle of peppermint foot cream to massage ourselves with. Whatever little steps we can take, to make a little peace with ourselves.
