Saturday the ups and downs

September 13, 2014

This week has been upsy downsy.  As you know I have asked my employers to reduce my hours, so I can work a 4 day week.  Although I am beyond retirement age I would like to carry on working a bit longer, but in preparation, a shortened week will be nice.  Although this plan has been approved in principle the finer details have not been fixed and a contract made. This procedure already has taken many months and I have become increasingly disappointed. This ‘disappointment’ is not having a good effect on my mental state and find myself running out ways to say this is OK, its not the end of the world or life threatening.

On the other hand this week my husband and I celebrated 32 years of marriage; strange that I write a paragraph of grief and a sentence of great joy!

Also my son-in-law had his book of short stories was published recently and this week some copies went on sale in Rio. My claim to fame is the cover design!!

But my congratulations go to Eliezer E Borba.

    Great cover, unusual but not gimmicky. Sometimes a process can wear us down until we almost wonder is it worth it, but it always is :0)
