And So, Here We Are

Monday dawns bright and beautiful and it's my last day at work before my break. It's going to be a busy one here with lots to do apart from the usual quick catch-up before an absence from work. I worked damn hard last week to get down to bare bones of things to do, knowing that there's always the unexpected which is bound to arrive on my desk before the day is through.

Also, today is the day that our prospective new head of HR comes into town for 'getting to know you' meetings and an orientation to the company and the surrounds. As I'm the co-ordinator as well as a meeting participant, it will be a long drawn out day. The plan is to get an absolute commitment prior to her departure this evening. I need to get her to 'yes'.

Updated 6:45pm....I got her to 'yes'!!!!!!! Yippppppppeeeeeeee. And I like her - suddenly the prospect of a new boss doesn't feel quite so worrying. Tis all good.

But, aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, the joy of this evening rolling around and going home to relax, sleep and close my case. I actually packed yesterday, which is so unlike me to be this organised, I do believe it's a true sign of my eagerness to get on my way. At 8:30am tomorrow, I'll be sitting on a plane about to take off over the South China Sea on my first leg to Tokyo.

As the song goes....on the wings of love, up and above the clouds, the only way to fly, is on the wings of love. I want to be there that badly, I could probably flap my own way over the Pacific!!

Update: Nope, as of 1:15pm I couldn't flap my own way over the Pacific. This damn
shoulder is still causing me grief and I completed my last round of anti-inflammatories on Friday, so I went to the doctor for something to take while I'm away. I thought I'd get away with some medication, but he decided to give me another injection as well, as I'm travelling.

Oh.My.God. This time it hurt like the dickens and I actually shed a couple of tears (not something I do easily when I'm in pain) and I right now feel quite nauseous. I'm struggling through a helping of sushi for lunch but it's sinking like a rock. I just hope the injection fixes it up for a few days so that while I'm away I'm not in constant pain and we have to adjust every position to accommodate a sore shoulder. One thing's for sure, it's not going to stop us!!
