I have been doing extra hours and extra training at work. But now I have been thrust into a situation which means I need to leave this job due to my personally security being compromised. It comes as a blow. This is not a great time to be looking for another job.
I think I am going to be able to stay until August. If I can’t find work here in London, I will have to go and stay with family. It may be more difficult to find work elsewhere. But at least I can do something – I can help with cleaning and other things.
Jack reminded me of a something the other day. It’s not that long ago really…although it feels like a million years ago. Neneh Cherry’s daughter on stage at an award show a few months ago. What we liked most was all the other dancers making a great visual display. I remember loving the overall look of the performance.
Well it’s been almost three months since the plug was pulled on events like that. I know I am not the only one, but I do miss parties. I do miss events. I do miss live performances. But it is all for an important reason. It seems very trivial in comparison for the serious situation we are in.
I do like the memories of all the fun we have had during a time of easy free wheeling for the past few decades. But life is not all fun and dance and merry go rounds and candyfloss. Sure we miss the fun of the fair.
I am pleased to be busy at work. Time is passing quickly. I can be useful to our patients, useful to my colleagues and the wages I earn can be useful to my family. I guess it is not having something to look forward to on my day off that I miss. I am a big socialiser – parties, events, live performances, dinners with friends. I guess it is the sameness of each week, and each day off that is getting to me a bit.
But I don’t want to complain. I want to keep doing my bit to help everyone else. There are plenty of great memories that are an endless source of entertainment and amusement.
