If you watch please don't judge too harshly, I'm still learning! This is a great way for me to learn editing (with Donnacha's patience and help) and talking in front of a camera is something I want to do in order to challenge myself, because it may not seem like it but it is a huge challenge and as you may have noticed does not come naturally to me!
How are you all? I was diagnosed with having several small heel spurs on my foot which is basically overgrowths of bone and my understanding is that these cause an irritation and inflammation of the tendon in my foot and that's why it's sore. I had to get insoles for my shoes and the sad thing is I think I just have to be careful about my footwear, so no more cute shoes for Emma :( I think it's got to do with a)- working on my feet and b)- my arches falling. This is my first ever diagnosis of anything so I consider myself very lucky considering the health issues I've seen loved ones go through for years. If that's the only thing that's been wrong with me in 25 years it's be pretty selfish of me to complain.
In other news my work situation is stressful as we had a meeting this evening to discuss restructuring and cutbacks in the staff in our branch. Two people will be "leaving" and as of the end of this month my contract doesn't exist within the new template so everyone has to sort of re-apply for a contract. We've all gone through this before but it seems worse this time. I don't know if I'll even have a job this time next month and the timing is crap too because our friends are visiting the week all the deliberations are going on so it'll be at the back of my mind the whole time. Having said all that I know I am not the only one going through this, not only are my colleagues going to be very worried but so are so many people today. I'm a fortunate person to have as much as I do and have a family and friends who care about me and I just have to be positive and say "Que sera, sera" as my mother used to sing to me when I was little. Whatever will be, will be. I have to trust that things happen for a reason and that everything that happens to me makes me the person that I am.
I hope you are all doing better than I am, feeling sorry for myself, do you ever wish sometimes we could all just sit down and talk in person?
