Work Review



According to my annual review, apparently it's been a good year and the powers that be are well pleased with me.

Talking to an old and much loved friend last night, I find myself describing work in almost entirely positive tones. So strange to think that exactly a year ago I was totally despondent, in discussions with another organisation and seriously considering jumping ship. It's been a difficult journey, but somehow, by staying true to myself and refusing career advancement in preference for staying 'technical', I've managed to end up right now, somewhere really good. A job I enjoy and feel I can really contribute in.

I'm still growing into the role and the juggling act that comes with is a little stressful, but by and large, things are pretty good.

I feel like I'm tempting fate saying this out loud, but for the record let it be said: I'm actually pretty happy on the work front.

And most certainly not just because they gave us all mini-hampers full of booze and goodies.

A hamper for Christmas is a regular thing from my work. The problem that they have is it becomes a method of measuring how we have been collectively valued over the year. Hence the hamper has been gradually shrinking every year. Next year I am expecting them to ask for a hamper back!
