I've had one of those days today. I rarely discuss my day job here - I like having the separation between my worlds. As a rule, I would say that I'm proud to work for the company I work for, I believe in the company values, and like the people I work with. On top of my own job, I've been asked to take on/cover another role whilst the role holder is on maternity leave - I'm doing this with no financial gain or reward.
Anyone who knows me, knows that I'm not an outwardly emotional person, and certainly not a crier - not even at really sad films - I get a throat lump, but I don't cry. Today at work I cried - in a meeting with my boss.
I cried out of sheer frustration and disbelief at what was being said to me. I won't go into details but I'll say that I feel massively under appreciated at this point. I find this hard because despite my job not being my dream job, I always put a lot into it. I care about what I do, I care about doing a good job and getting a good result. I feel very let down. sigh.
Tomorrow is another day and I'm sure it will be better.
On a brighter note, I've just received my lovely new CK bag. I received some money for my birthday so purchased this in the Sale:
It's a huge bag - much bigger than I anticipated but it's great - and lined with a pretty teal spotty cotton.
It struck me that it would be quite simple to make a similar bag myself. I think I have enough fabric in my stash for the job (slight understatement!). I just need to purchase some of these and I'm away!
